Examples: Castle Daventry, Mannanan's house, Connor's house etc.

The house I would own would be Mannanan's. Its small and has secret passages and a library. If I could have all of the Green Isles with it, I would pick the Castle of the Crown in the Green Isles, but if I'm only getting the house then Mannanan's would be neat.

But it would have to still be on the mountain.

Crispin's little cottage in the woods. Love that area.

I'm not sure, but it would definitely be one where you couldn't fall off the stairs! :P

Mannanan's house. I still hate Derek Karlavaegen for catching that hot piece of property before I did! Some day he'll get his.... *shakes fist furiously*

I think I'd like a house in Tamir. Maybe on the fairy island, though, what with the ogre and the zombies on the mainland. But...then I could see a unicorn!  ;D

Gah, I forgot about that one. :(  But still, I'd have to say the castle in Etheria.  I'd be surrounded by all those rainbows and flowers, all those bright neons, and could say I own a real actual castle on a cloud.  Siiiiigggggghhhh...yeah, no, I still definitely like my answer. :yes: I would call Count Tsepish's horse and make him take me to visit you, Katie.

Mordack's castle.

Seconded. Creepy angel statues, gothic archways, corridors entirely filled with giant looming skulls, a bed guaranteed to give you nightmares, the most fantastic looking evil library ever - what's not to love (in a completely weird and manical way)? :D

The houses of Beauty and (the) Beast are both quite nice as well.

Yes, that's what I meant. Stepmother aside, it's a nice house. I always liked it.

I agree, it's very pretty.  It's very Spanish-style.  And those roses! :smitten:

I have always wanted the dwarf's house in KQ4. My sister wants the mansion, minus the ghosts

You're asking about the wrong game. CLEARLY, the best Sierra/Roberta house option is the mansion from Laura Bow: Colonel's Bequest.

Castle Daventry, naturally. If I could own any property in the series, it would most DEFINITELY be Castle Daventry. That, or the Castle of the Crown. I'm not settling for some small little cottage; oh no, I'm going BIG! I'm going CASTLE SIZE, BABY! And if I owned Castle Daventry, I'd bring some guard dogs in from The Land of the Green Isles. Human guards are just so... Human. I need some dogs in my life, especially considering my parents flat-out refuse to buy me one.

EDIT: Please note the following: I have split all the dog conversation into a separate thread. Please redirect all further discussion of dogs here.

I've live in the Green isles and own the Castle of the Crown. I like the decor of the place. And the Isle of the Crown is a lovely isle. And of course I've had a ton of guard dogs! They'd be fun to have around.
