When you buy a house, you want the place to feel like a home. The building, location, and property need to feel comfortable to you while meeting your family’s needs. To that end, a house has to be unique. But you can always take it too far and be too “you.” Take, for instance, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath house listed in Concho, AZ for $240,000, a house that anyone looking for a condemned cat palace in the desert could call home!
The listing for the house reads:
“Contemporary eccentric full log sided custom home on 20+/- acres for the cat fancier!”
Mmk. Great. It’s got a real, “I promise no one is cooking meth in here, officer” vibe to it. I love the windows.
“If you love cats this is the home for you! If not bring your sandblaster!”
Sorry, a sandblaster? Did the assessor find termites or something? Yes, and they’re probably covered in cat urine.
EGAD! We’ve officially ventured into obsessive-recluse territory. Arizona strikes again!
“Custom build [sic], hardwood kitchen cabinets (Oak, Lacewood, and Bocote) artistically accented with river rock.”
That is the most spin-zoned sentence I’ve ever read. Taping pictures of cats you printed out at the library onto cabinets does not qualify them as “custom built.” I can’t even see any cabinets in this picture.
This place is held together with used cat litter and regret.
I can’t even tell what is structurally going on in this den of sadness. Is this a literal log cabin? What is..no bad start to my question. Please, allow me to start over.
Why? WHY? WHY!?
“Cat walkways and in great room Medieval cat castle with different levels (stone). All interior doors custom built (wood). Must see to believe it does exist!!! Once in a lifetime find extremely fun home!”
Nothing says “fun” like a dilapidated closet that may or may not have once housed a family of raccoons.
Local news outlets are reporting that the raccoons moved out recently. The house was “too fun” for them.
This is, truly, a “once in a lifetime” offer. Where else could you buy a house with bare plywood floors, an exposed hot water heater held together with duct tape, covered floor to ceiling in cat pictures all for the low low price of $240,000? Literally nowhere else on earth.
If you have a quarter million dollars lying around, are looking to break into the booming housing market of Concho, and are looking to burn a house in the desert, you had better act at a normal pace! Lots of people are not looking to buy this house and offers are not streaming in.
