This whole grey-on-grey trend has gone a little far, in House Crazy Sarah’s humble opinion.

Detroit is already a depressed area, but when you add in these dreary grey November listing photos during the dark days of COVID, well, let’s just say it makes old Eeyore seem like a bundle of joy.

The white, modern furniture does little to liven up this bastion of dread and darkness.

The black sheer window coverings are reminiscent of a Victorian widow’s mourning veil.

Doom & gloom abound in this 821 square foot 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom eyesore.

If your Seasonal Affective Disorder and your regular depression weren’t enough to give you suicidal tendencies, spending 5 minutes walking through this house might push you over the edge.

It makes House Crazy Sarah feel oppressed.

She envisions a sad, single vampire bachelor living here.

Perhaps even the grey-loving owner couldn’t stoop so low as to make the basement dark and gloomy.

The price for all this depressing anti-charm?

A mere $69,900.

So if you are looking for a great – albeit completely depressing – deal in Detroit, here you go!

A little light-colored paint would go a long way towards rehabilitating this tomb of gloom.
