Mike Huckabee had his rock-star moment this week as two rabid fans of the former Arkansas governor bought his old home in North Little Rock and are jumping for joy about living there.
In a move usually limited to devotees of famous musicians, Billy and Linda Sue Morden forked over $660,000 for the five-bedroom, five-bathroom residence. It's where Huckabee and his family lived after he ended his 11 year-run as The Natural State's top lawmaker in 2007.
"Oh, my goodness, we are so excited about it," Linda Morden gushed to Arkansas Online
about living where their favorite politician once slept.
"We have the den furniture and two bedroom suites and some vases. We have big TVs, with some of them in the walls. We have the prettiest picture of the Ten Commandments."
The house, which sits on just over an acre of property and comes complete with a salt water pool, was first listed in 2013 for $850,000 — $190,000 more than what the couple paid.
The couple said that after they took ownership, Huckabee stopped by for a few things he'd left behind, including a large gun, with close to 25 firearms inside his first BB gun.
The enthusiasm of the new owners is not like the fans who buy the childhood homes of famous rock 'n roll stars.
Ringo Starr's childhood home in Liverpool sold for about $115,000 and George Harrison's onetime residence was picked up for about $240,000. And last month, Neil Young's boyhood home in Canada was put on the block for $300,000.
