While we don’t have any listings in other planets or galaxies, we do happen to have homes on coldwellbanker.com in 51 countries. In the spirit of the new film being released next week; join us for a look at some Star Trek inspired homes.
How does it feel when you’re out and about with family or friends all day without access to a charger and for some inexplicable reason your phone battery dies? Or how about when one of those pesky late summer thunder storms roll in cutting your lights out, reducing you to Ben Franklin-like candle usage like it was 1783 again? Not fun?! Now imagine for a second, if an unknown phenomenon disabled all advanced technology on the planet, from iPads, iPhones and computers to airplanes, batteries and cars. No more lights. No more stoves. No. More. Facebook. (oh, the horror!)
If you prefer blankets to swim trunks and skis to surfboards, then the castle at Winterfell from “Game of Thrones” might have piqued your interest if you were in the market for a cozy home (or hut) a few thousand years ago. The next nominee for “Outstanding Home in a Drama Series” is none other than Winterfell Castle, which is widely considered to be the capital of the North. Winterfell is located between the capital of the Seven Kingdoms (King’s Landing) and the dreaded “Wall” that keeps civilized society separate from Wildlings and very angry frozen zombies.
In the spirit of the MTV Movie Awards, the team here at Coldwell Banker has convened behind closed doors and decided on five “Movie Home of the Year Nominees” from 2011 films that were nominated by MTV for some award or another. Rest assured that the homes nominated below exhibit excellence in the area of looking awesome.
