But House Crazy Sarah just feels happy when she looks at this house in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Michigan-Mid-Century-Masterpiece

In fact, some of the rooms give House Crazy Sarah a full-on giggle.

The owner (Karen) put her name in neon lights above the fireplace!  Can you see it?

Karen’s house is currently listed for sale for $1,599,000.

From the outside the 4,483 square foot Victorian Second Empire looks normal enough.
