As expected, the contractor that bought our old place is now selling the lot. If you were interested in the location, but not so much the house itself. It is now a blank canvas. Build as you wish.
Reminds me of scene from the Chevy Chase classic Fletch Lives (which, coincidentally, I saw at the now boarded-up theater in the Village):
Fletch: [flirting] Hey Betty, how about lunch at the In N’ Out Burger?
Betty Dilworth: [disgusted] No.
Fletch: Okay, forget the burger, how about just the In N’ Out?
[she sneers at him]
Fletch: Ok, how about just the In?
