Welcome to my home! Now prepare to be boarded!

Note that these are two different cannons (the light above is different).

Nothing says “this home is super classy” like a fountain made of half-naked ladies.

A pipe organ and a pair of sarcophagi isn’t how I would have chosen to decorate my dining room, but sure, whatever.

The movie room: also super classy. I do like that they put “Hook” up on the screen for the photo though.

The dungeon seals this home’s position as the most over-the-top themed house I’ve ever seen.

Okay wait, what? We just went from pirates to space? So confused.

And let’s not forget the scale old west village, complete with train. Huh?

  1. Ummm…I’m assuming it comes furnished?

  2. @K: I was wondering that too! The listing doesn’t say. Seems like it would be silly for the furniture not to be included.

  3. Over the top is right. I kept thinking, “This would be a cool place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there,” until I saw the observatory. I could put up with the decor if I get an observatory to boot. (I wonder if the pipe organ works).

  4. Considering the location, less than 40 miles east of Anaheim, I’m really wondering if perhaps a generous helping of Disney spores, held aloft by the famous Santa Ana winds, alighted here, thus causing this secondary Pirates of the Caribbean location to spring up, accompanied no less by the Buzz Lightyear bathroom. I’m tempted to say, “Gee, somebody needs a hobby,” but I guess the house *is* their hobby. Too bad they’re having to sell.

    I can accept the desire to go whole-hog pirate anywhere except for the kitchen. Hoo boy, is it dark in there! It’s gorgeous woodwork for sure, but it’s one place I couldn’t handle the cave-like quality of pirate-era ship interiors.

    Speaking of cave-like interiors, the dungeon with skull chandelier and wine cellar corridor look so much like the wait-line spaces for the actual Pirates of the Caribbean ride that I’m quite certain it would be impossible to remove my hubby from them if ever he were to enter. The only thing missing is the prisoners trying to coax the dog into handing over the cell door keys. Visiting said ride is enough to power his inner little kid for weeks. Getting to live in it might well provide enough latent energy for the whole damn country to go off petroleum.

    As for me… OMG, the pool and hot tub! I MUST have the pool and hot tub!! Santa??? (And just for the hell of it… somebody please tell me how much just the dining table and chairs would set me back…)

  5. I’d call this place, “Hilarity Ensued.” :D

    With it’s cramped space, bunk beds, vacuum hose, assignment board and electronic doodads, I suspect the “space” room is staff quarters-cum-control room for the various features. Some of it looks very special purpose; who knows, maybe they’ve got some of those dummy-sculptures rigged up as animatronics, beside the water features, small scale trains, etc. Far too much effort to live in a place like that – let alone caretake it. Makes me tired just looking at it.
