Here are some of the world’s most amazing residential views that will simply thrill you. Each evokes an intense emotion and interest, similar to how you feel when you’re reading a moving story or hearing a tale about a timeless legend.
And as one famous real-estate story goes . . . the burly alpha male, Ernest Hemingway, was lunching in NYC at The Algonquin (the legendary hotel where many literary writers congregated back in the heyday), and bet some fellow writers that he could write a whole story in just six words. Those writers had their doubts and each put up ten dollars to challenge Hemingway, anticipating that he would fail. He didn’t and, as promised, wrote an entire story in only six words: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” It’s also rumored that Hemingway believed this short story to be his finest work ever.
Each home identified below tells an amazing story unto itself. And you can read each story (also only six words) and experience the most exquisite views in less than one minute; however, you will be forever changed for the better. So, start your binge viewing now.
Sleep amongst the lights, in luxury.
Live the dream in blue waters.
At the top, everything is better.
Dimmed lights. Going all the way.
Walls hold no secrets. Only adventure.
When real life is picturesque nonfiction.
Live big, live here and never die.
Call your Mediterranean lovers home here.
To never want again, live here.
Living on the edge, in bliss.
It could be safely said that Hemingway is the father of flash fiction, and was clearly ahead of his time. He was the first to push the popularity of the short, short story. In other words, he created the most engaging posts before the time of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. And if you were to further ponder about this, each of these social media platforms could be said to celebrate the Hemingway-six-words-story craze, reminding us that less is definitely more.
So, having viewed the above great stories, feeling inspired? If so, move onward, and go live out some noble stories all your own.
