In case you don't recall, Rick woke up from a coma weeks after the zombie attacks had overtaken his fictional King County. He biked over to his house to find his family absent. Soon after, he met Morgan. I was there as a media representative when Morgan's son whacked Rick on the head with a pan, thinking he was possibly a zombie himself.
The house description does make a sly "Walking Dead" reference:
The house you want on the street you love. Gracious spacious rooms that harken back to another time; this historic structure frames a completely renovated masterpiece of modern conveniences and energy efficiency (2013). Two working fireplaces, claw foot tub, heart pine floors, 11' ceilings, and original millwork honor the old while embracing the new chef's kitchen, dry bar, double marble master bath, walk in closet, two sets of 8' French doors opening onto huge covered rear deck. Driveway and alley access for parking. Sheriff Rick slept here.
