“I’m not sure you are aware that the villa you bought has quite a history. Has anyone shared it with you?”
Max and Eva looked at each other, as Max answered, “I don’t think so.”
“Well,” he continued,” this villa was not always as you see it now. It has been added onto many times over the years. Just before the previous owner bought it, the villa underwent a major renovation. Actually, there is a section of this villa that dates back to the late nineteenth century. Legend has it that the original structure was owned by a notorious ship captain, Edgar Byrde, who used it as his home base. A story has been passed down over the decades that he buried treasure somewhere on the property. The property stayed in the ship captain’s family until the mid-twentieth century. The last ancestor, Jackson Byrde, was said to have lived an extravagant lifestyle, jet-setting around the world on his private plane. When his plane crashed in the 1950s, and he was killed leaving no heirs, the property was auctioned off and bought by a man named Baker.
