Somebody had fun with this house.
This trippy lil’ thing is located in Los Angeles, California. It is up for sale for only $389,900 – a bargain price for LA – no?
The listing says it was built in 1921. I’m going to assume there was an original structure under there somewhere dating back to 1921. But the angular windows and walls we see now are most definitely modern.
No word on why the designer went all Alice in Wonderland/Clockwork Orange, but it certainly has some eye-catching features.
I found this older photo depicting the house before it was painted:
(Are those lace curtains?)
The listing says the house has been “recently remodeled”. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 4,000 square feet so it’s a lot larger than it looks from the exterior.
Inside, parts of this home are totally normal. Then there are the windows…
And the angles of the walls…
And the ironwork….
Somehow, the brown builder’s grade carpet seems out of place. A black and red speckled pattern or green super-shag would be more in line with the design – don’t you think?
It’s off the market now, but this little gem was on for sale as recently as this summer for $1,199,000.
Sure it has a stellar location in Montecito, California with over and acre of property. And it even has a historic pedigree – being hand-built and originally owned by members of the Bohemian Mountain Drive Artist Colony. But $1.2 million for a brick hut?
Heck ya, look at this sweet thing!
