The Bel Air Modern house that was featured in AD few years back is completely infested with Mold says all the agents and the listing says bring developer/contractor. Sad state of affairs as the house was stunning. Due to water issues it will have to be razzed!

This guy Halsey Minor takes the word stupid to a "whole nother" level. What a putz.
