    Looks pretty awesome, and a ton of work. Maybe if we weren't in the middle of a kitchen renovation... ;)

    It's just a weeeee bit of a fixer-upper.

    7,000 square feet over two stories, with an auditorium in the basement, reading rooms, and a club room

    So wait, it's ICHQ 3.0?

    Funny that. I was just telling @Linc today that our real estate agent has been keeping an eye out for us and sent me that listing today BEFORE he sent it to Curbed. I went to tell him about it and he said "LOL you mean the one on the front page of Curbed?"

    Our agent certainly knows how to get the people out to see the place.

    It needs a full interior gutting, it'd look awesome todo whatever with. 5/7 would win the lotto and purchase

    The tile work and some of the architectural details look salvageable. Hopefully whoever buys it does a nice job restoring.

    LOOK AT THIS INSANITY! You can move to Detroit, own two custom-built mint condition classic cars, own original working antique 1950s Frigidaire appliances, be a super eccentric weirdo, and IMMEDIATELY OWN EVERYTHING IN THIS FUCKING WACKO MONSTROSITY OF A HOUSE!

    You say "MONSTROSITY," I say ebay gold mine.

    But holy shit, wtf were they thinking with 85% of those pieces?

  • BlueTattooBlueTattoo Boatbuilder Houston, TX Icrontian

    We've been looking for a place, but WOW. Just, WOW!

  • BuddyJBuddyJ Dept. of Propaganda OKC Icrontian

    I bet some of those rooms reek of sex. It's like a creepy Caligula fantasy. If you got rid of all the crap, it'd probably be a decent house.

  • LincLinc Bard Detroit, MI Icrontian

    There is no way anyone has lived in that house for years. That is some rich person's hobby decorating house. Every functional part of that space is blocked with stuff, and no one has the patience to undo/redo that much stuff every time they need to sit on the toilet, cook, or sleep.

    I don't think you met my Grandma Rivers then.

    Or like,

    Any eccentric old ethnic person. I can tell you firsthand that I know of houses that were of a similar design sense that people definitely lived in for years.

    My grandmother uses her oven for storage. And has to remove everything every time she wants to use it. Old people have LOTS of patience.

    So did mine, but she kept it all on the broiler pan for easy removal, see. :D

    holy crap, that Cadillac! Throw some ox horns on the hood and roll around like Boss Hogg.

    If that Cadillac and the Lincoln are in top shape and low mileage (looks like it), they could collectively be worth around 30-35K assuming they don't have too much weird custom stuff going on.... but who knows, maybe that would even up the value.
