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.

161016avonct01

The seller added goop to the staircase risers.

161016avonct02

There are smears and goop all over the kitchen.

161016avonct03

The kitchen, we think.

161016avonct04

The breakfast room.

161016avonct05

More goop in the parlor. Even the piano was painted.

161016avonct06

Check out the ceiling.

161016avonct07

The bathroom.

161016avonct08

Another bathroom.

161016avonct13

At least the curtains aren’t knotted.

161016avonct10

A closer look.

161016avonct11

More goop on the door. There’s a lot of sanding required to remove the goop.

161016avonct14

Another look at the staircase.

161016avonct12

Let’s look at the bedroom now.

161016avonct09

Gauze for alarm?

161016avonct15

The window panes were painted.

161016avonct16

The dining room.

161016avonct17

Walls and ceilings were touched in every room.

161016avonct18

Gauze and effect. How would you remove the gauze and goop from the walls?

The AstroTurf House

July 11th, 2016 · 4 Comments

This Phoenix fixer could be worth $500,000 in San Diego.  Notice the roof and wrong type of paint.

Remember the window with the sideways board; I’ll refer to it later.

Artificial grass turf carpeting everywhere!  No need to waste water on real grass.

Looks just like a football field.  Each line of weeds is 10 yards?

Uh oh.  The wall fell over.

Martha complained that Rick’s smelly #2s could peel paint, but this is ridiculous!

Nothing to see up here, folks.  Keep looking down at the upgraded flooring and admire the custom drapery.

Careful the peeled paint doesn’t fall into your food in the kitchen.

Kitchen.
