Of all the sales schemes to surface in the down market, this must be one of the most shameless. The listing opens: "Buy this Rolls Royce for $1,295,900 and get a 5,463 sq ft house on 4.8 Acres for Free!" For one, the vintage Rolls in question is worth less than $50K, so the listing should really read "Overpay for this Rolls Royce by $1,255,900..." Gimmicks may be necessary, though, as the house in question is a generic '80s Colonial and the address—10 Coffin Street—leaves a lot to be desired. By the numbers, the house has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, six fireplaces, a three-car garage, and an outbuilding that could be used as a stable.
