This place is outta this world! Actually it’s an interesting combination of several worlds: part Martian moonscape, part Gothic cliff-hanger, part Medieval castle, part really bad decor from the 1980’s. It’s a real head-spinner, er, head-scratcher.

Let’s just call it what it is: a WTF were they thinking?? house

But House Crazy Sarah loves houses like this! So let’s have a look-see and wonder who lives here, and what exactly it is that they do for work.

Because they have lots of toys!

The Smith Lake Castle in Alabama is currently listed for sale at $4,600,000.

With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in 5,500 square feet on 18 gated acres with it’s own dock and an 8,000 square foot “shop”, it may be worth 4.6 mils. But to pay that kind of money, you’d have to really love the unorthodox design.

And that will take a very specific kind of buyer. Like a House Crazy Sarah, only richer.

It does have fantastic views of Smith Lake!

Wowzers!

The decor is rather pink and feminine à la 1980’s Golden Girls.

The house is being sold by the second owners. Any guesses about what the original owner did for work?

Yup, he was in “the building business”.

So as bizarre as this house is, you can bet that it’s well built.  🙂
