Whoa. It’s like a few of the rooms in this house were designed to induce maximum dizziness.
I would most likely fall down those stairs at least 50 percent of the time.
Can’t even figure out the purpose of this room, unless it’s just “to insult anyone with a modicum of taste.”
Seriously, looking this place’s interior is making me sick. Let’s see what there is outside.
Okay that isn’t really better. I’m certain water is not supposed to be that color.
All this for just $1,490,000! Best foreclosure deal in Texas!
Only one word at this late hour, perhaps more later. For now, though… Craptastic.
I mentioned that some parts in the last post were “trying too hard.” This entire listing, on the other hand, has a fatal case of the same disease. It’s like the moderne house version of Elizabethan fashion. See what I mean? http://annaghmakeup.blogspot.com/2013/10/elizabethan-make-up-research-images.html There are so many little bits and bobs, so many articulated corners, one cannot see the forest for the trees. If you have to try (let alone try too hard), you simply aren’t cool and you never will be.
Marty, I couldn’t figure out those stairs either, not until all the way to Pic 17! And the multi-colored rip off of a Hollywood Theater chain lobby? Pretty sure it’s the snack stand for the game room. You can see it just beyond the room itself in Pic 6. It even has the glass front candy counters. Pity about the pool. I don’t envy whoever has to clean it, though it might be pretty nice when it’s been resuscitated.
I was surprised to see this place was built in 1996. I could’ve sworn it was 1980s new-money schlock. Whatever. When the listing says “AS IS” in all caps… Run Away, Run Away, Run Away
@Emerald63: Woops… I thought the link would go directly to Picture 6 at the Elizabethan site. Please disregard any inappropriate images prior to that one. :\
@Emerald63: I was thinking 1980’s too, inspired by Battlestar Galactica.
So we have all these design-y-ish custom-made elements… with off-the-shelf bottom-dollar ceiling fans.
I wouldn’t buy without spending more than the house is up for for renovations.
This is what a multidimensional transfer station accident looks like. Note the horrible, wandering signal “static” effect permanently rendered into some of the surfaces; that can actually be a lot worse than some of the subtle non-Euclidean distortions. You did not want to be there when that happened – almost as much as you did not want to be who or what was transiting through.
I would strongly advise not attempting to clean the pool; just fill it in and treat the area respectfully. The good news is that this site will not function again, inadvertently or otherwise.
@anodean: An accident would already be bad, but can you imagine an EMP getting tossed into the transfer station? (O_o) Yeah… watched “Agents of SHIELD” last night and was reminded of how damaging those can be.
Consider the unfortunate OREO bank officer, forever doomed to inspect, maintain, and arrange the orderly sale of such places…
@anodean: OREO? Not a cookie… and not, um, a slur… right? So….??
@Emerald63: Sorry, probably been gone too long. I meant “Other Real Estate Owned,” the part of a bank’s portfolio where foreclosed properties were (are?) shown on their books. Back when that used to be a very rare, calamitous event and no bank would need anyone assigned to that full-time. ;)
@anodean: Gotcha. Ironic, though, that that word could ever be associated with anything dreaded, lol. :)
