Post Heinlein's Colorado Springs house for sale
I just received an interesting voice message from the current owner of the Heinlein house in Colorado Springs.

It's for sale. He wanted to know if anyone in the Heinlein world was interested.

Egads. I have no idea if that's a fair market price or not; I would assume it's in the ballpark.

Sadly, the house was almost wholly rebuilt in the 1980s. I believe the bomb shelter still exists but the house itself retains almost nothing of the original design. A look at the "bird's eye view" shows a large and conventional layout; a glance at the Popular Mechanics article shows a much smaller, flat-roof design. I also don't believe RAH built it a a four-bedroom.

Interesting, I suppose, but past relevance.
