Tiny Tuscan Town Can Be Yours for $3.1 Million
If you've ever thought about investing in Italian real estate (after all, it's going cheap these days!), here's a good opportunity: An 800-year-old hilltop hamlet near Florence, Italy, is up for sale on eBay
for $3.1 million.
Of course, Pratariccia is a bit of a fixer-upper
. The little town has been abandoned
since the 1960s, with 25 rundown houses dotting the landscape. And you may need a weed wacker, as it's become a bit overgrown with brush. (The eBay ad describes the village as being "in need of restoration.")
But look on the bright side: The scenery is gorgeous, with rolling hills, historic villages and a national park nearby.
Real estate reps are hoping that Pratariccia will be used for development -- preferably for a resort or retirement community.
Don't have a taste for Italian? There are towns on the domestic front that you can snag, such as the "Hunger Games" village
, known as District 12, in North Carolina, or the tiny village of Pray, Mont.
Sorry, but you've already missed your shot at the one-person town of Buford, Wyo.
