Who doesn’t need a CRT-TV embedded in the wall of their attic? I have to say, I’m also really digging the bold move to cover literally every square inch of non-window space in this room with what appears to be portions of the exact same tree.
Most of the rest of this $2.25 million home looks fairly normal, but that pool has certainly seen better days.
Either that’s a reeealy brown house or the listing agent went crazy with warmifying the photos of the interior. I’d have to repaint and decorate with some color.
@Frodo: Exactly what I was thinking. One phrase just kept repeating in my head the whole time I was perusing the listing: “It’s a tan, beige, and cream trifecta.”
Not a bad looking place considering it was built in 1918. Obviously updated at some point, maybe in the ’70s, but even most of that styling still looks usable. Take out a few of the brown shades, add in some color and other materials/texture, and it would present a nice place to be inside.
I’m a bit confused about the outside, though. The description says there are two lots, which implies lots of space. But if you look at Pics 5 & 8 you can see what looks like a parking lot in the former and a vehicle either parked or driving by in the latter. That’s mighty close for comfort in my world, even without the price tag.
And I find it amusing the listing states there is an “unobstructable” view. Maybe, but something about saying it that way sounds like a challenge to the Powers That Be. Never underestimate the ability of stupid people with lots of cash, and looking to make tons more, to screw up what seems like an unscrew-upable situation.
@Emerald63: “unscrew-upable” Love it! That’s the kind of coinage my daughter and I share with each other.
Huh… just looked at the street view and I don’t see where there’s a double lot. Google’s images are from October, 2014 and there’s new construction directly behind this home, like with a few feet of it. And there is a parking lot to one side and a street to the other. Part of the forward view to the “unobstructable” side is of a 3-lane, double bike lane street fronting the lake. This is the last older single home for quite a stretch; the majority now are multi-unit apartments/condos.
@Frodo: Looks like that coinage just but us both a couple of laughs. Apparently it has valid street value. ;)
Just “bought”… just “bought” us both… Like I said, ain’t no such thing as “unscrew-upable situation” where humans are involved.
