“The view from Brad Wilder's hillside house is a 270-degree panorama of New England high countryhellip;. His vista is stunning. But you can't say it's priceless. Wilder's view has actually been valued right down to the dollar: According to the town of Plainfield, it is worth $237,265. In 2003, town officials deemed it a bonus feature of his home, like a third bathroom or marble countertops, and ordered him to pay about $4,700 in property taxes for it.” (Washington Post, Monday)
