My voyeuristic real estate tendencies continue. Here’s what I found this week:

This is not for sale, but rather on The National Trust for Historic Preservation’s 11 Most Endangered List. It’s the boyhood home of Malcolm X, and it’s currently owned by his nephew, Rodnell Collins, but has been vacant for 30+ years. In partnership with Historic Boston, Collins dreams of preserving Malcolm X’s legacy by transforming the house into living quarters for graduate students who are studying African American history, social justice, or civil rights. This dream will take some bucks; historic Boston needs to raise $750,000 to make this happen.

I saw this on EOnline and Curbed, but I think the photo officially comes from Town Residential

This SoCalledHo Life Loft has me hankering for the season premiere of Homeland; when is it ever coming on again? Anyway, back to the pad; this light-filled space belongs to Claire Danes and  Hugh Dancy and it’s on the market for $5.998 million.

Speaking of celebs who are currently starring in excellent Showtime shows, Edie Falco’s digs are a whole lot nicer than Nurse Jackie’s, but she’s listed them at a cool $5.5 million.

I noticed a large ad for this auction in The Atlanta-Journal Constitution this over the weekend. It’s Kenny Rogers’ Lake House (note, it’s an 8-acre “lake”). It’s outside of Athens, Georgia. It is some crazy place, and I had no idea The Gambler had so much in common with Liberace; check out this bedroom:

The property is huge and the auction even includes a pontoon boat and a Sea-Doo for circling that 8-acre lake.

    I saw that yahoo list! It’s a wonderful idea to turn it into top notch student housing. I’m sure many students would be honored to live there.
