    Ramsey house for sale again

    The Ramsey house is back on the market again. Remember a few years ago the owners petitioned successfully to have the address of the house changed to 749 because the previous address of 755 was "too notorious". There are 7 photos here showing how the house was remodeled. None of the bedrooms or basement. Try the link:

    The strangest part is that they don't even show the front of the house.. I guess it's too " notorious" also.
    The living room ceiling certainly seems low for a house of that era. I wonder if stupid Patsy had the ceilings lowered?
    The modern addition ( JonBenet and Burke's " wing") looks like it was designed by her- on a day when she was full of pain pills.
    These photos show the angular lines of the original structure contrasted against her glass rounded pod thing.
    Just awful-- even if no child had been brutally killed by a parent in there.

    The house is certainly a mix of styles. The ugly modern back addition doesn't go with the classic Tudor style at all. BUT I don't know if the Ramseys built the addition or if they bought it like that. I seem to recall reading that the addition was already built when they bought it.
    I think the photos focus on the back because the front of the house is so notorious and also because it just looks so much bigger from the back. Let's face it- they were "more is more" kinda people.

    Actually if you click on the "More Information" link in the listing, there are more photos including some bedrooms. I know one of them is JB's, but it looks so totally different now. They also did extensive basement remodeling- there are some photos of it. All in all, the house looks beautiful and very different from the way it looked in 1996.

    it does look beautiful.which one was JB's room? you got me there.
    something to ponder:

    When the corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and the mortal have put on immortality, then shall we be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

    The sting of death [is] sin; and the strength of sin [is] the law.
    But thanks [be] to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57

    it has some pretty good house-flippers working on it,doesn't it?I guess it's quite a potential money-maker.maybe even moreso than a foreclosure,since it's so large.

    I believe JB's room has a beige carpet and white fan. There are several white closet doors in one photo, and you can see the balcony windows in another. It is virtually unrecognizable from the fussy pink and green McKenzie-Child's version that it was when JB lived there.

    Is that the basement area redone with the rock covered archways? If so, it is the most changed area of the house. Still. Would you be able to "chill" there nearby where Jonnie B. layed?

    Virtual Tour of Jon Benet's House

    Here is a link to a virtual tour of Jon Benet's house. I live in the Denver Metro area. http://realvideotour.com/VT0749/
    There is a picture of a wine cellar with a very ornate design on one wall. My friend and I think it may be the area where she was found - and they blocked it off.
    Hope this link works ! Let me know.

    If you look at the basement photo showing the stairs coming down to the basement, there is a large wall panel immediately facing you as you walk down the stairs. THAT is where the door leading to the wineceller and the room just before it. In the crime scene photos, the first room you would walk into would be the room where JR's golf bag rests on a wall just in front of the wineceller door. The wineceller door is closed in the photo. It looks like BOTH of these rooms were blocked off, and that decorative wall panel with the scroll is there in place of the door.

    Here is a link showing an arm opening the door that led to the rooms. It is this door that was replaced by the wall panel.

    And here is a link showing the same area as it looked the morning of the 26th. The wineceller door is closed, and at the time this photo was taken, JB's body was still laying undiscovered behind that door. Officer French had failed to open it.

    WOW! Thanks! That was just plain eerie. It is a very beautiful home, but I wouldn't live in it, even if somebody paid ME. I wonder why the last owners are selling it. That makes HOW MANY times that house has been sold, in the last 12 years??

    And I read that he is STILL having a hard time forgiving himself for that. If HE had of found her, John wouldn't have been able to contaminate the crime scene by taking the tape from her mouth, untying her hands, and picking up the body. It makes me sad, to know that she was behind that door when that picture was taken.
