NOTE: John Wayne lookalike owns the property

They thought to relocate — listing the property last summer for $1.2 million and then dropping their ask to $950,000 in September — but selling turned out to be tough. "The appraiser for the lender is not going to appraise any of the collectibles or the antiques," their listing agent, Earl Brown, told Realtor.com. "Just the house" — worth maybe half a million.

Truth be told, the Deskovicks aren't terribly keen to move anyway. Brown told us that when he asked the Deskovicks to describe their ideal house, they specified a smallish home on a fair bit of land with no neighbors breathing down their necks.

Pretty much their current situation, in other words.

And when we talked to Deskovick, here's what he had to say:

"What you have to pay for what you get, they're NUTS. So we just decided to stay right here." The listing was removed right around the time that Yahoo Homes reached him.

WOW! Very neat looking place they've put together. I would love to visit the Deskovick's town and stroll around appreciating what they've done together over the years. Very cool! :cool:

Thanks for sharing alayonruger!

They probably have a story that goes with every collectible piece. Looks like they had some fun putting it all together.

Would make a great tourist attraction.
"Time wears on, though, and upkeep is getting to be a bit much for the Deskovicks. He's 83, she's 81."

Sadly, unless someone who shares their interest and has tons of cash takes over the place, it will soon be a thing of the past, literally and figuratively.
