This house looks normal from the outside, but behind the brick facade hides a wonderland of custom creations.
Indeed, this California property has gone viral online because it is much more than meets the eye.
The former home of a “highly respected psychiatrist in Sacramento” has come on the market for $825,000 after the peaceful death of its late owner earlier this year, Lyon Real Estate agent Janet Carlson told The Post.
Carlson, who lives just across the four-bedroom Coleman Way, has had “the privilege of knowing him for the past 20 years” and is selling now her neighbor’s 2,320-square-foot single-family home distributed for $825,000.
The late owner is responsible for all the artwork that lines the interior – where nearly all ceilings, floors and walls have been painted, decorated with mosaics and otherwise fitted with decorative whimsy.
He also loved gardening, and the driveway and backyard now have hundreds of potted plants.
“He was a very creative and brilliant man who lived alone and created his artwork in his spare hours,” said Carlson. He was greatly inspired by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi and also loved musical theatre, especially the costumes and set design.
Look closely and his fascination with prime numbers, astrological signs and the four elements is also evident in the work he created during his 25 years living in the house. A carpenter helped him with concoctions based on his imagination, which led to the property being covered with over 5,000 tubes of caulk over the years.
“It felt very much like being in the fairy realm on a set in the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy,” Carlson said of the end result.
As well as being a DIY wonderland, the address also features a living room with bay windows and stained glass, a fireplace and built-in chairs – as well as a two-story garage and pool.
The basement has “a hidden storage area” that the listing suggests could make a great wine storage, and the property is within walking distance of the Sacramento light rail and City College.
