The Waldo Mansion at 201 Westmoreland St. in Westmoreland, best known (well, for its interiors at least) as the terrestrial stomping ground of playboy astronaut Garrett Breedlove, the Jack Nicholson character in Terms of Endearment, is getting a bit of a haircut today. Tree crews have been working all morning to start the process of ridding the site at the corner of Westmoreland and Garrott of “many” of its large surrounding oak trees, a reader tells Swamplot. But only a single tree has been removed so far, as these photos show.
The property, which had been renovated extensively since the filming of the 1983 movie starring Nicholson, Shirley MacLaine, Danny DeVito, and Debra Winger, was sold in June for $2.85 million, down from a $3.5 million asking price.
