Hat tip to daytrip for sending in this cliff-front house on the edge – hopefully someone has a camera on this 24/7!
A luxury house in Texas, perched on a cliff with a spectacular view of Lake Whitney, has started falling into the water. The edge of the 4,000-square-foot home was dangling about 75 feet above the rocky shoreline after part of it had already broken off.
Soil and other debris could be seen falling occasionally from the foundation of the home at the 0.46-min mark.
A small sign reading “Extreme danger. Stay off premises” was placed in the front yard as neighbors looked on helplessly.

In the first four months of 2012, there were 67 REOs listed for sale in NSDCC. This year there were 24 – not counting this one:
