A house on the real estate market in Stone Mountain, Georgia, for $475,000 offers a bizarre living room feature that’s managed to tickle the fans of a popular social media site that takes aim at unique homes for sale.
While most homes come with fireplaces, this particular fireplace stands out of a crowd for a couple of reasons:
Beyond that, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom resident has a retro vibe, comparable with that in an “Austin Powers” home, the listing on Zillow.com says.
Some rooms make a lot of use of mirrored disks, including the fireplace itself and over the bed in an arch in one of the bedrooms.
Other features include a built-in scoop couch, breakfast bar, a griddle and grill, subzero refrigerator, floor-to-ceiling windows, an indoor garden and even a “built-in fountain window feature,” the listing says.
The home stole the show of Zillow Gone Wild as folks commented on the home’s retro features and its general vibe.
“Beautiful unique retro home. I would get rid of the carpet and update the kitchen – but wouldn’t change much else,” one fan said.
“I don’t want to buy the house, but I very much want to throw a few back with the folks who designed this, preferably in that carpeted fire pit room; are they taking bids just for that?” another asked. “They really should.”
“Honey, should we update this kitchen with this inheritance money?” someone joked. “Nah … Let’s put some exterior landscaping in the bedroom and a fire pit in the living room, and while we are at it, a water feature would be nice.”
“If you like teal carpet and yearn for a home with all the romance, class and ceiling mirrors of a 1960’s Las Vegas hotel suite, this house is for you,” one person expressed.
“I expected a better kitchen…I’m disappointed that it didn’t match the rest of the house,” another said.
“I love the main living area of this place so, so much,” someone gushed. “The rest of it needs about 98.79% fewer mirrors.”
“It has all the elements of nature: earth, water, fire, air and carpet,” another joked.
“I would brave the infinite trip-and-fall hazards to live in a house like this.”
Stone Mountain is about 19 miles northeast of Atlanta.
