Some homes are just wild rides all the way through and this fine piece of architecture is one of those.
On the market for $629,000 in Hamden, Connecticut, this four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom house was “custom designed in 1969 by renowned Yale architect David Sellers for the current owners,” the listing on Realtor.com describes.
And with its special “sloping roof lines,” it allows the natural light that flows through the surrounding trees to seep inside in a shadowy sort of way. Other captivating features inside the 2,912-square-foot space include:
Its special exterior design caught the attention of Zillow Gone Wild and both confused and fascinated fans of the popular social media real estate page.
“I respect it more than I love it… if that makes any sense,” one person said.
“My dogs would climb that roof like goats,” another joked.
“I’m fascinated with the exterior and had really high hopes for the interior, but my hopes were immediately dashed,” another commented. “What a wasted opportunity to have a super cool house.”
“Downside: the kids would run all over the roof,” someone said. “Upside: putting holiday decor up would be so much easier.”
“This house design has ‘Starfox enemy base’ vibes. I don’t hate it either,” another wrote, referencing the Avengers’ superhero. “Could use a little *something* here and there but it’s just weird enough to be nice.”
“Why are we not talking about how much fun it would be to go sledding down that roof??” someone asked.
“The angles are crazy but I like it a lot,” one person said.
“I REALLY like it,” another person commented. “Remove the carpet for wood floors and a few other tweaks and I’d be happy! “
“Looks like the perfect setting for a psychological thriller,” someone joked.
Hamden is about 30 miles southwest of Hartford.
