This $160k House May Look ‘Normal’ On The Outside But It Is Very Strange Inside

You feel as if you are walking through a 13th-century castle when you are on the inside.

One of the biggest financial decisions that most of us are going to make in our lifetime is purchasing a home. A lot of thought and energy goes into the process. Not only do you need to consider the location of the property, but you also want to hear what others have to say about it. When all is said and done, the most important thing is actually seeing the house before the decision is made.

@Fraizerapproves is a Twitter user who located a home for $159,900. He decided to investigate further and ended up calling it the “greatest house listing of all time.” Located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, this house is fairly normal when you look at it from the outside. When you go inside, however, it is an entirely different story.

“I live in Pittsburgh and came across the listing via my local subreddit,” Frazierapproves told Bored Panda about how he found the listing. “The front exterior photo is completely unremarkable. It’s very typical of the 1960s Suburban Pittsburgh housing vernacular… particularly in the eastern suburbs. That’s the kind of home they built for middle-class families in the last days of steel. The first surprise came with the photos of the backyard. Not only is the yard larger than one would suspect, but swimming pools are exceedingly rare in this region, due to the hilly topography and small window of summer-like temperatures.”

He posted on Twitter that things started to get strange when he saw the inside. He spoke of the spiral staircase and vaulted ceilings that took him by surprise. The large outer space mural helped to set the medieval theme in the living room and library.

“Each successive photo reveals another genre-themed room, with an increasing level of commitment. It’s like a miniature amusement park or a home-sized movie studio. It is simply the most amazing home I have ever seen,” he said.

It seems as if many others agreed with his assessment. After posting the tweet, it was liked tens of thousands of times and shared over 20,000 times.

You feel as if you are walking through a 13th-century castle when you are on the inside. Everything from the laundry room and galley kitchen to the workshop require passing through a hatch. The bedroom is connected to the rest of the home with a spiral staircase. One of the bedrooms also has a tropical island setting and an indoor beach. The other one is a hippie paradise.

He added: “But, more importantly, they are the kind of person who recognizes that a home should be a reflection of one’s own personality. I’ve been in my house for years, and some of the rooms still bear the last owner’s paint on the walls. It’s safe. It’s ‘tasteful.’ This person clearly made the house their’s, and that’s something that all of us who are fortunate enough to own their own homes, should aspire to.”
