I’ve written about the weirdest, craziest, and ugliest houses I’ve ever seen, and while some of you might put today’s house in those categories, I consider it to be unique.
No, it’s not the house pictured below of a house, built atop another house, perched on a rock. But that’s been sitting in my “Photos” folder for quite some time, so I had to work it into a post…
Instead, we’ll look at an active listing in Detroit, Michigan, for a $550,000 home, that could not possibly be more……..unique.
It was October of 2016.
I wrote a blog post with a title that was quite possibly an insult, and a compliment, at the same time:
That’s a doozie, if you have time to read it. Er, view it.
In May of 2017, I followed that blog post up with something similar:
What’s the difference between the two? Between “ugly” and “crazy?”
I’m not sure. Maybe I didn’t want to sound repetitive…
The saying “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” may ring true on the context of what is ugly, crazy, weird, or unique.
Today’s home might be ugly to some, and crazy to others. But in my mind – especially as you get to the last few photos, it’s truly unique.
For the record, I also think it’s weird. Downright bizarre.
But I’m going to go with unique for now.
Ummmm……unique enough for you?
What was your favourite room?
I swear, I had to be convinced that the wood-pannelled living room wasn’t a dollhouse miniature. For some odd reason, the way the camera shot that room, it looks like a dollhouse, or some sort of claymation scene.
What else did you like?
The plastic wrapped toilet?
The Elvis stand-in on stage in the basement, with bistro sets waiting for patrons?
The statues adorning each corner, of every bed?
If you’re thinking, “what’s with all the cars?” it’s because they’re actually being sold with the home! This is the Motor City, after all.
Check out the blurb from the listing:
“Only shown on sunny days.”
That has to be the best part, hands-down…
