I usually do not listen to the radio. In fact, I probably haven't listened to the radio since the mid-1990s. I mean why when you have CDs or an iPOD? But because I have only one CD slot in my new car and no place to really store CDs, I haven't messed around with the CD player.
However, the radio tells me who is playing and the name of the song right there on my dash. So when I want to stop thinking about the fact that I am a Sacramento short sale agent and tune out the world while I'm driving -- if you've been reading my stuff for a while you can understand the need for a stress reliever now and then -- I listen to the radio. The scrolling song titles suck me right in.
I haven't found a really good radio station in Sacramento yet, but I did hear a new tune that I'd like to share with you. It's called Old Man by Redlight King. It's a sampling of a tune from Neil Young's Harvest. Harvest is an album that developed so many scratches in it that I eventually melted it in a pot of boiling water and made an ashtray out of it. You can only listen to Old Man Scratch Take a Look at my Scratch so many times.
Yet, you can look at the photos of this short sale home in Lincoln Crossing over and over and never tire of them. Sort of like staring at an album cover, turning it over in your hands, caressing it. Not the sort of thing you do with a CD. But back to my topic. This is a gorgeous and stunning home.
I've seen some large homes in Lincoln Crossing but nothing like this particular model. It's ginormous. By that I mean this home has 5 bedrooms -- 6 if you count the office, which also has a closet -- and 5 baths, make up 4 full baths and 1 half bath. It's just under 5,000 square feet.
There is a loft on the second floor that doubles double duty as a game room -- it holds a pool table quite nicely so the backs of your pool cues won't hit the walls. A nice feature, in addition to the master suite with dressing area, is there are also 2 junior masters, one of the first floor and one on the second floor.
The first floor has mostly oversized ceramic tile throughout. I believe the formal living room with a ceiling that soars above the second floor -- I mean, you could lie on the floor and shoot rockets at the ceiling, it's THAT high -- is carpeted. The family room boasts a gas fireplace and a spacious wet bar with extra cabinets. You could probably entertain a group of 200 of your closest friends in this home and not feel compelled to hand out deodorant samples. Did I mention it has a salt water pool heated by solar panels?
