A Photo of The Moat

If you embiggen it, I think you can get a sense of how it seemed to wrap around the whole house.  The only drawback (aside from it suggesting that there might be a drainage problem on the lot) was that it didn’t have a drawbridge.

  1. If the front yard angles toward the house, it may be a way to channel water toward the side of the house so the water kinda goes around the house. If that’s the case, that’s not good at all because you will have foundation issues, if it doesn’t already. No amount of fixing up the place will matter if that happens.

  2. I suppose it was cheaper to dig a ditch around the outside than to re-do the whole yard or to install the stuff necessary to keep the basement dry.

    I’d run away from that one… scary.

  3. Christian’s right. It looks like there was a need to redirect water that was soaking the foundation. It’s worth being very wary on that one.

  4. no gators, no crocs, no piranha. some moat. what’s the use of a moat if nobody gets eaten once in a while?

    this house sux, period. not even a drawbridge would help it.

  5. A moat – hee! If you move into a house with a moat and built a bridge over the moat, I’d be compelled to stand on it and greet people shouting, “Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries!”
