What Can You Buy in Abbottabad for $1 Million?

What Can You Buy in Abbottabad for $1 Million? Do you like privacy? 

Looking for that quiet getaway? 

Are you security minded? 

Perhaps you seek a nice pied-à-terre. Maybe you hate schlepping out the garbage all the way to the end of the driveway twice a week. 

Did you hear that the Hamptons and Catskills are “out?”

I have just the place for you. 

That’s right, a new opportunity has come up in Abbottabad, Pakistan that is a cool bargain at $1,000,000.00. Just 6-years young, this 3-story battle-tested mansion is just a stones throw from Pakistan’s national military academy and just became vacant this week. Sitting on a level acre with a privacy fence, it borders tranquil farmland and is perfect for an in law setup and plenty of guest space for out of town visitors. 

Some other amenities include mountain views, a balcony with a 7-foot wall (can you say safety?) and really solid gates. 

There is also a great area to incinerate your garbage – no more skunks or racoons knocking down your trash cans! 

The place has great bones, but does need some touching up; some carpets might best be replaced, a few wall holes to spackle, but the potential is enormous. Not only that, the place has had only one owner! 

Just this past week a helicoptor landing pad was installed (not warranteed, buyer should attend to their own testing and due diligence. Owner disloses some fire damage).
