I'm wondering if anyone has read anything through the years regarding this topic. It's interesting to think what Mary Austin will do with Garden Lodge in the future?

She is going to turn it into a giant flea market, with a huge gallows in the middle.

My guess is that she'll live there.

it's HER f*cking house....so why wonder? it's of NO concern to anyone but her what she does with it

I'd piss myself laughing if she made it a shrine to ELO or Def Leppard or some other band....that'd really make the stepfords wail

If I get very rich some day, I would love to buy it if it came up for sale.
I cant imagine how much its worth now.
The fact that Freddie lived and died there might increase the value by some millions, dont you think?

Didn't they do a lot of outside work to it since Freddie died? Like cameras and stuff?

If she does decide to sell it its up to her as long as she doesn't open it up to the public because it was a place where Freddie could go and have no members of the public looking in on him so I think it should be left private.

And Mary Austin has said in interviews that she has left most of the decor of the house untouched including Freddies bedroom suit, so she treats the house as something of a shrine herself.


Which I think makes it safe to say, she would never open it to the public. She's kept it the way Freddie wanted it - private - and she'll no doubt keep it that way.
As she should, IMO.

Fuck Graceland. Elvis isn't even living there anymore, why would you want to visit it??
Same goes for Garden Lodge, I'm sure it's very nice, but if Freddie isn't in, then why go there? It'd be depressing!

Yeah it's always depressing to see hundreds of gold and platinum albums Elvis have (had) :D
