For three years there's been one constant in my life, an almost daily walk around Runyon Canyon with my Labrador Cooper and a view of the abandoned mansion that sits atop the hill overlooking L.A.
It's been the topic of many a morning gossip with wild rumours amongst fellow dog walkers of the owners running out of funds, earthquake damage, and more sensational stories like dead bodies under all that concrete.
Who knows what the real story is behind the enormous mansion, which The New York Times claims is on the market for a mere $15.2 million.
What everyone can agree on is what a waste it is for the building to remain empty and again ideas for dog boarding kennels (with luxury swimming pool), homeless shelters and for it just to be knocked down abound regularly.
If you do have a few spare million dollars I know a lot of people who'd be pleased to see the mansion occupied and renovated, plus you'll have spectacular views, famous neighbours like the Getty's and lots of hikers and their dogs to say hello to on a daily basis.
I suppose I better start saving my pennies now...
