John Edwards House Biggest and Most Valuable

Posted by Thunder Pig on January 26, 2007

RALEIGH — Presidential candidate John Edwards and his family recently moved into what county tax officials say is the most valuable home in Orange County. The house, which includes a recreational building attached to the main living quarters, also is probably the largest in the county. “The Edwardses’ residential property will likely have the highest tax value in the county,” Orange County Tax Assessor John Smith told . He estimated that the tax value will exceed $6 million when the facility is completed.The rambling structure sits in the middle of a 102-acre estate on Old Greensboro Road west of Chapel Hill. The heavily wooded site and winding driveway ensure that the home is not visible from the road. “No Trespassing” signs discourage passersby from venturing past the gate.Don Knight, Orange County building plans examiner, told CJ that, including the recreational building, the Edwardses’ home would be one of the largest in Orange County.

    Bashing Rich Ambulance Chasers should be the national past time.

    Lawyers aren’t exactly my favorite life form, and ambulance chasers are the lowest of the low. payment for lawyers on personal Injury cases should be handled exactly like cases where the defendant cannot afford an attorney…for scale, not a piece of the action like a gangster or Real Estate Agent.
