This House Looks Ordinary From The Outside, Only Until You Step Inside And See Why It Costs $7,600,000

Dragons, battles and daring adventures. The beauty of fantasy novels is that they can take you to other worlds, but what if you could live in another realm every day? Well, Oregon artist and house developer Ed Bemis managed to make that possible. Tucked away in the foothills of Ashland, Oregon sits Shining Hand Ranch, a whimsical home that is so detailed it is fit for royalty from your favorite book.

This dream home was completely custom created by local artists and incorporates eco-friendly features. The space is heated and cooled with the use of geothermal energy with a solar heated pool. Intricate, hand-made pieces are the cornerstone of what makes this home unique. Bemis spent 1 1/2 years alone carving the Brazilian mahogany arched front door. The 8,881-square-foot property spans across 706-acres, enough room to keep your dragon on. Bored Panda has your virtual photo tour of Shining Hand below, and if you $7,600,000 to spare all of this could be yours!

Welcome to the mystical kingdom of Shining Hand Ranch

It was custom designed with the help of multiple local designers

It took artist Ed Bemis 1 1/2 years just to carve this intricate door

It’s all in the details, maple and cherry floors give the illusion of a flowing stream

This elaborate staircase was carved from manzanita branches (indigenous tree)

Artists incorporated lots of native imagery into the design details

Fire And Ice style mosaic dragons are one of the most intricate house features

The bathroom is decked out with blue Van Gogh granite

Large open windows look-out onto Mount Ashland, Taowhywee Point, Wagner Butte, Mount Shasta, and Pilot Roc

Geothermal energy heats-up the pool, housed in a separate building

Would you live here with your dragons?

No, thank you. Its too much of a good thing, I think. Too many patterns (like the kitchen), which all by themselves are amazing, but get a bit lost because there are too many, I think.
