Some houses are just wild rides and this fine piece of architecture is one of them.
On the market for $629,000 in Hamden, Connecticut, this four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home was “custom designed in 1969 by renowned Yale architect David Sellers for the current owners,” the listing on Realtor.com describes.
And with its special “sloping roof lines”, it allows natural light streaming in through the surrounding trees to filter inside in a somber way. Other captivating features within the 2,912-square-foot space include:
Its special exterior design caught the attention of Zillow Gone Wild and confused and fascinated fans of the popular real estate social media page.
“I respect him more than I love him…if that makes any sense,” one person said.
“My dogs would climb that roof like goats,” joked another.
“I am in love with the exterior and had high hopes for the interior, but my hopes were immediately dashed,” another commented. “What a wasted opportunity to have a super cool house.”
“Disadvantage: kids were running all over the roof,” someone said. “On the contrary: putting up the Christmas decorations would be much easier.”
“The design of this house has an ‘enemy base Starfox’ vibe to it. I don’t hate him either,” wrote another, referencing the Avengers superhero. “It could use a little *something* here and there, but it’s weird enough to be nice.”
“Why aren’t we talking about how much fun it would be to go sledding on that roof?” someone asked.
“The angles are crazy but I really like it,” said one person.
“I really like it,” commented another person. “Remove the carpet from the hardwood floors and a few other touch ups and I’d be happy! “
“Sounds like the perfect setting for a psychological thriller,” someone joked.
Hamden is about 30 miles southwest of Hartford.
