I made several trips to NSA Naples and AFSOUTH, on liberty off the carriers. I never really knew where I was since it was like driving around in a maze. I bought my first good stereo system there in '77. I was walking around in the NEX there once and heard someone whispering my name. I looked around to see a girlfriend I had known at NAS Jacksonville. I always thought it would be cool to be stationed there for a while. I know I would have enjoyed it. Good memories...

It seems that this estate, build in 1927, had quite a rich history, and was even considered haunted. Katharine Hepburn lived here in the 1930s, with Leland Hayward.

In the late 1930s and the first half of 1940s, it was occupied by Boris Karloff. The story says that it was Karloff who planted the estate’s rose garden, which stands to this day.

Then it passed to a producer, who rented it to the Scottish singer Donovan and to Elliott Gould, at different times...

I found the actual house they live in, on Zillow. It's in Hidden Hills. They've since remodeled the home, so the photos listed on Zillow don't reflect the show. It's plain as day, that this is their house, given the grand entrance double staircase, and the details listed in this article, of it being sold in 2010 for 4 million, exact square footage, lot size etc.. I would list the address, but I will honor their privacy, by not doing so. They do in fact live in the home they shoot the show in...

They would have to completely reconstruct everything and set up new water supply lines in order for it to be able to reopen. I've been there and everything is just so decayed and rotted there would be no way that they could use hardly any of the original structuring or systems. It would cost millions for them to somewhat restore and would just be a huge waste of money for the company.
