Asking price: $14.5 million.
Looks like they raided the dumpster behind a modern art studio and just glued everything they found to the stairs.
Okay that’s a fun concept, but when you end up putting “stuff” up there, I think you’ve run out of ideas.
The listing describes this room as an “interactive space ship arcade for playing video games.” I don’t recognize it as the bridge of any specific fictional starship, but maybe I’m just not nerd enough?
This is definitely the coolest part of the house, in my opinion.
I imagine this as the money counting room. They put all the bills and coins on the table, sit in the bright red chairs, and count it all, one by one.
I bet someone got paid some serious bucks to come up with this. The best spaces are on the outside.
@Frodo: Agreed. I like the outside, too. The front facade has clean, modern lines without being too “out there” or barren. The pool is good, too, though the raised wall around one side is a little strange. It looks almost too insubstantial to hold in so much water.
“A modern art dumpster” – perfect! At college, the Visual Arts Building was right behind the school of architecture where I was. At the end of the year there was a ton of discarded projects, including some that would totally fit in here.
To me the gaming “bridge” looks a bit like the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. There’s still a Trek-like room in Pic 26; puts me in mind of the NextGen holodeck.
As for the “money counting room,” it’s definitely… interesting how parts are literally just drawn on, like the fireplace. I half expected to see 3D Homer Simpson stroll in. And what’s with the funky columns just outside the room (Pic 5)? Are they solid or hollow? Filled with what? Please tell me they work like lava lamps!!
I think my favorite part is the bit of bathroom we see in Pic 11. I wish there were more shots of that room. The primary colors work well, despite the room being small, and the tile work is delightfully vibrant.
If my cones did get tired, I could take them for a rest in the theater (Pic 23). The “starlight” walls and ceiling are like being at a drive-in, but in climate controlled comfort and, no doubt, with “curbside” concessions via the staff that keeps up over… 19K sq ft! (O_o)
I love it! I find it creative and unique, thanks for sharing, Emerald!
@K: I’m glad you like it, K! :D
I figured one of those mannikin figures we’ve been seeing must be positioned at the top of the stairs, dressed in overalls, with a push-broom…
The site says “one of a kind”, so true. In the last pic above, I never thought to put hats on my lamps.
@Colleen: Oh dear, now I’m visualizing them doing an energetic song-and-dance number all around the room before suddenly returning to their assigned spots… and just try, try to tell anyone about it afterward, as they stand there silently smirking…
