Here’s how the listing agent describes the home:

“You’re traveling through another dimension, into a home of design, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous home whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Sherbondy Zone.”

Some yahoo will probably come along and rip out all the cool carpet and period fixtures.

But at least we will always have these listing photos of a cool house that is just a little off the beat.
