Covered patio with laundry area and water heater at one end. The sellers enclosed the patio with a green blanket for more intimate ambiance. Goal achieved. Friends and family will love hanging out here.

Father’s man cave. Notice the well-maintained leather couches.
Wall-to-wall stuff. Check out the “thou shall not whine” sign.
The father’s son’s room. Completely filled.
Walls and ceilings are completely covered, thanks to dad’s example.
Dad’s bedroom. No surprise here.
This is not how we suggest staging a home when selling.
The father’s teenage son has taken over the guest house, with decorating help from dad.
The son will likely pass on his habits to his offspring.
What is that?!

Thank you to our reader Jennifer for finding this very unique home for sale in Avon, Connecticut. There’s a lot to see and lots of photos to share. Enjoy.
The seller appears to have an artistic quality, with embellishments throughout the house. The stair balusters are covered in fabric.
The seller added goop to the staircase risers.
There are smears and goop all over the kitchen.
The kitchen, we think.
The breakfast room.
More goop in the parlor. Even the piano was painted.
Check out the ceiling.
At least the curtains aren’t knotted.
A closer look.
More goop on the door. There’s a lot of sanding required to remove the goop.
Another look at the staircase.
Let’s look at the bedroom now.
Gauze for alarm?
The window panes were painted.
The dining room.
Walls and ceilings were touched in every room.
Gauze and effect. How would you remove the gauze and goop from the walls?

Fish pond or water feature surrounded by dolphins.
Maybe these two dolphins escaped from the controversial Dolphinaris Arizona attraction in Scottsdale, Arizona? Someone thought it was a good idea to bring eight dolphins to mega-hot Arizona, so they can boil in the hot sun and hot water while humans pay to swim with them.

Here’s some art work
obscene seen in a bathroom during a home tour. Not appropriate for children. Washer or wash-her?

Big waves of excitement at this home. Happy cloud, sad cloud.
And then we see this.
Things get cheerful again in the living room. The circles on the ceiling are meant to distract you from the flooring.
More ceiling damage in another room.
Yes, those are pieces of broken mirror! On the ceiling!
Mirror, mirror, on the
wall ceiling. Who’s the dangerous room of all?
The best room in the house.

Make your bathroom into a delightful garden.

I saw this bathroom during an agent home tour. Sunken bathtubs are common in that part of Phoenix. But the two pieces of tile are not. Why add the tile there and do the custom edging? Unless the tiles are covering up something.

This odd, submerged structure with the metal grate in the middle is either a BBQ grill or a fire pit where people gather around (with no seating) or it is a fish pond. I doubt it’s a fish pond; there is porous flagstone on the bottom.
Here’s a more distant view.
