After finally looking at all the pictures, I can confidently say, if I had been in their shoes, I would have bought it, too! What a house! Thank goodness they can afford to heat/cool it, and pay someone to keep it tidy.

Dang. Wonder what its like waking up there. Do you think the shock is over at this point, or have they hired someone to pinch them every day and remind them they aren't dreaming?

I Agree! LOL @ the pinching part

    After looking at all the pics l Disagree. Congrats on their win but l get the distinct impression that this home was bought to " get away from it all. "

    *Here are my reasons.

     They showed up in NY the very next morning to tell the world that they are winners.

    Telling the press that they intended to keep working. Then they fired their attorney. 

    Now that they over exposed they need to buy a home as far away as they can from civilization? From the pictures,  the only light other than their house is the stars.Face it: they home alone. 

      I am willing to bet that they will not stay in this mansion 5 years. After all it's just the two of them & the dogs.

    As always: an opinion.

        Next, they both decide to upgrade spouses and have a big nasty divorce.

        And the song: " I had mansion walls that turned into bathroom stalls."

        Or

            Taking care of that house is a full time job for more than one someone. Not that they can't afford to have it done, but AFAIC, a house like that is just a giant albatross around the neck. I can only assume it's yet another manifestation of the emotional problems that sent them to a TV show before going to the lottery office.

              I have read where some winners in SoCal had their atty drive them to a lottery office in Sacramento, submitted their claim, and then immediately flew to Hawaii for an extended vacation.

              Would have made more sense to drive to the  lottery office in Van Nuys.

                No, it wouldnt. The point was to avoid the press who are known to stalk the lottery offices.

                  Van Nuys lottery office used to be small office within a much larger Govt office building. There are 1000's of people coming & going there every day. I didn't know they had moved to the place on Sherman Way. Also: No one knows if you are going in there to claim a $601 ticket.

                   If they wanted to avoid using any of the 5 offices in SoCal, they could have gone to the one in Fresno.

                    Lol! that could easily happen to them as a few years ago a jackpot winner in Great Britain did just that. The husband was perfectly content but the wife shall we say, became a little frisky with other males.

                            I wonder how many people are asking for money. They both look like they have no problem with the word No.

                              If you took a gander at the pictures of their new place dr, l doubt you going to see beggars or Panhandlers hanging outside their gate. That's why they moved out there in the first place, to get away from non millionaires. Looks like a good quarter of a mile of gravel road to the front door, so that's out of the question. If they have caller ID, they could simply not pick up the phone. The only way to get their attention is to climb the gate or work their way through those trees at the back of their property ..only to be confronted by ..yes, my original idea...The cave trolls lurking the property. Think your encounter with them will be friendly- doubtful.
