The world has closely followed the story of this little Seattle house that belonged to a tough old lady named Edith Macefield. When developers sough to build a shopping mall on her block, Macefield reportedly refused offers mounting to $1 million; she would not sell her beloved cottage, only to watch it torn down and replaced by a commercial monolith. Fast forward to 2015, seven years after Macefield’s passing, and the house is on the chopping block yet again. This time, it’s been put on the market by the investment company who took possession after its former caretaker passed away.
