Every now and again, we come across a real estate listing so pure and so unbelievable, that we have to share it with you in its entirety. This Detroit home for sale is one such property. Let’s go on this journey together, shall we?
Some might call it Buffalo Bill’s tribute to Liberace, but we think the decorators of this fine Highland Park home are just misunderstood. Known as Lion Gate Estate (which you can tell from all the lion head crests in basically every room and also the permanent looking logo on the driveway), the owners of this home have really committed. See the innovative use of crochet on the ceiling, in both the breakfast nook and the 70s wood paneled den? High art—literally (because it’s on the ceiling? I’ll see myself out).
Yes, the gallery is nearly 70 photos long, and at times you might be tempted to give up, but I promise that it is worth it. Otherwise, you might miss out on the the entirely acrylic furniture in the dining room, complete with creepy mime dolls. There’s also the spring floral bathroom that’s partially covered in plastic tarps (and pastel green carpet). Or the staged Elvis concert in the basement, along with a lot of old Madonna memorabilia. Or the use of a custom pool table as thoughtful storage for toy cars.
That’s not even talking about the custom two-car garage that is painted with murals, and is basically a shrine to the automobile. The fenced in yard is awash with fountains and statuary, as one would expect.
Now, what does this three bedroom, two full and two half bath home go for, you ask? A cool $550,000, and it comes with full contents of the house (a treasure). If you want to see this beaut in person, you better come with proof of funds and 48 hours notice. Also, it’s only shown on sunny days—which is either to discourage vampires or to avoid a leaky roof (or both).
