The Hillary house

Oh Good God. The HoS reports:

The future of Sir Edmund Hillary’s home is uncertain, amid family fears that it may be bulldozed by its new owners, and the mountaineer’s Himalayan pine chopped down.

Sir Edmund’s daughter Sarah Hillary said she would be saddened if the house was knocked down.

“I would prefer if someone lived there happily but I can’t control what happens,” she said.

Yes you could have. If you wanted to control what happens, you could have either not sold it, gifted it to a museum or placed a convenant on it restricting future owners. Of course that would mean less money.

But with all due respect you don’t pocket the money, and then start complaining about what a new owner may or may not do.
