I guess you can get a back rub on the toilet, too.
 
2021-12-31 7:33:03 AM  
The toilet is a little weird.

Other than that I think I kind of love it.

It looks like one big craft project.

Better than most of the Zatrocities I've seen on Fark. You can really spread out on that toilet.

Maybe it's better than looking at one's phone? Dunno, never tried it.

If I were on vacation and doing Airbnb, I think it would be spiffy to stay there for a few days. Living there? Don't think so.

Seriously, what blog are people getting these bizarre listings from? I'd like to waste a few hours there

I think there's FB/Twitter feeds full of them, honestly.

This town is like 20 minutes from my house. Cutie-ish rural town. Pretty evenly split between Dems and the Let's Go Brandon crowd. But they just voted to allow cannabis dispensaries, so that's nice.... It would be a great Airbnb.

Seems a good price for that many buildings and 5 acres. Five acres in my neighborhood would set you back about 20 mil.

Also, I feel like this part of the listing is important:

"Down by the tributary stream and nearby pond there is an incredible, roofed storage building, charmingly made out of a romantic railway car. As you walk around the property, John Kahn's kinetic sculptures, stonework, wooden temples and totems punctuate the landscape. At the base of the property there is a wood fired sauna room and cabana with a deck overlooking a wetland area. In addition to having a waiting room, exam room and small lab, the ground floor office has a bathroom, steam room and shower, as well as a comfortable small living room. It could easily become a one-bedroom suite with a separate entrance on the ground floor.  Built on a former rock quarry turned sculpture park, the home was designed and built by renowned artist and Jim Henson/Muppets right hand collaborator John Kahn. Every detail was cut, joined and inlaid by Mr. Kahn himself."

Por que tan serioso: Seems a good price for that many buildings and 5 acres. Five acres in my neighborhood would set you back about 20 mil.


Acreage is really cheap around here. I just saw 40 acres for less than $200k. And something like 500 acres (maybe 400?) with Hudson River frontage for $1m. What you're paying for is Jim Henson's partner's house and sauna.
 
2021-12-31 8:38:53 AM  
I'm not sure you'll ever get the smell of patchouli out of the place.

I am looking in Michigan, the U.P. Land is soooooo cheap. Tax on 40 acres of unimproved land is literally pennies per year. In 100 years I'll be remembered as the best damn great grandpa for buying land next to a fresh water source when the planet is scorched.

I like it, and you could really get some good thinking done on that terlit.

I couldn't afford it on my own. But, if each Farker puts in a dollar, it's all ours. Fark parties, Fark orgies, Fark Larping, etc. The possibilities are endless!!!
 
2021-12-31 9:00:04 AM  
I love it. Well worth the price. I would add some nice shaggy ponies though, even though the cutest ponies are the devil himself.

It has a magical light up dingleberry, what more could you want?
 
2021-12-31 9:26:08 AM  
I think if I 'had' to spend $800k on a house, I'd take the one in Indy that was Greenlit the other day. The one with dueling stripper poles.

I just told you what I want.  I want my rectal architecture to have a semblance of life and joy.  Did I ask for a magical light up dingleberry?  No.  No I did not.

I stayed in a hotel in Paris once with a toilet placed similarly. It had a shower curtain that you could circle around yourself for "privacy."

Looks more like an upscale B&B than a private home.  I suppose that's one way to pay for it.

Oh thank Gawd I'm not the only person who saw it that way.

I actually kinda like that place but given who designed and owned it, etc., someone who has an interest in maintaining a sculpture garden and so forth should own it and that's not me.

Finding furniture and fixtures for a round room isn't easy either.  It's tough enough with a Victorian house that has one of those corner turrets but there it looks like every room in the house has multiple curved walls.

Agreed. I totally don't understand those framed pictures in a bathroom. Can't you put them somewhere else?

Property tax bill.is higher than my mortgage payment on a similarly priced home.

What do.they get that's extra?

Really neat! The unconventional interior angles remind of the interiors of the cube houses in Rotterdam. (Pictured.) I've heard some residents can find it disorienting, like a "fun-house effect". My house has some odd angles that makes off-the-shelf furniture layout a challenge. Looks like the yurt solved that with bespoke furnishings. Except for the throne, of course!

Glad I'm not alone. I looked at that and thought "why would you want a giant butthole right there?".................ahhhhh. Jim Henson's partner, gotcha.
