The Creepiest House On the Market Just Can’t Find a Buyer

There’s a home in Hartford, Connecticut that can be acquired for a pretty reasonable sum of $323,000. So why does nobody want it? Well, check out these pictures from the real estate site Zillow and ask yourself the following questions: who designed this home and what was their inspiration? Because we’ll be damned if it doesn’t look like an amalgam of every horror movie house in the history of cinema.

Why, God, why are there blood splatter paint designs?

Again, the blood splatter designs…and is that a sheet of raw bacon on the side there or human flesh?

The reading room is quaint….if you’re on horse tranquilizers.

What is this?

The backyard patio looks like a booby-trapped set-piece out of Hostel.

The kitchen (is that what this is?) looks like it was designed by Jigsaw.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre anyone?

The exterior doesn’t look that bad by comparison.

Okay, investors, get out your checkbooks!

    Although the aesthetics are horribly uncanny, the backstory drains the creepiness out of it. This was a project (and later the main office) of the Fermata Arts Foundation (fermata-arts.org), an international arts organization. You can see a lot more of the house (and two similar but not as hideous houses) in the designer’s portfolio: http://www.synkovhouserepair.com/architecture-and-poetry.html – In any case, there really are some pieces of the house that look beautiful on their own, and took some skill. But together, it’s just mish-mosh.
