Some people live by the old cliche “never judge a book by its cover” when it comes to houses. What gives off the appearance of a plain-Jane looking bunker on the outside could have the most sophisticated get-up on the inside, like this listed Ohio home.

And then there are houses that have a downright baffling exterior that matches their entire interior. Like this bizarre four-bedroom, two-bathroom property on the real estate market in Las Vegas for $450,000.

In some areas, the 1,923-square-foot home is akin to a time capsule from a 1988 sports bar, especially in the family room where a lineup of CRT-looking television sets hover on a wall.

Other areas look to be less cluttered, like a room that holds a pool table and what appears to be a bar area.

“I live in Vegas and it’s actually in a good neighbourhood,” another observed. “I’ve always been so curious about this place. This is actually pretty tame to what it looked like on the outside years ago.”

“I have so many questions,” someone said. “Why the staggering number of televisions and computer monitors? Why don’t they own any bedding actually sized for their beds? Why so many tiles and bricks? Why did they build a shrine for their garbage?”

“I feel like this house was made by someone who set a personal challenge for themselves to build a home made only from curb finds, clearance materials, or remainder stock,” one person commented.

“It seems to be made of all the left over building material and TVs from the entire vegas area,” another observed. “And completely without measuring anything.”
