Historic Home's Future Uncertain

A 1930s-era, 4,000 square ft. house is in danger of being bulldozed; that is unless someone wants it.

At the end of February, Paul Torres listed the Bryan house, on Ebay.

The only catch was that the new owner would have to move it off the land, which Torrres plans to develop.

Thousands of people logged online to check it out, and 12 people bid.

In the end, neither the bidder nor the runner-up bidder could make the project work.

Because the house is so large, Torres says it must be split into three separate pieces to be moved.

The first and second place bidders discovered the cost to move the home could be between $60,000 and $70,000, and that the moving costs would need to be paid in three installments.

Torres says he doesn't want to see the home torn down, and is willing to give someone the house for free, if they want to move it.

He says he's also open to letting someone salvage wood from the home.
