This $400,000 House Being Sold In Texas Might Be The Weirdest House You’ve Seen Yet

They say to each their own, which is why as respectable adults we should not judge other’s choices. But you’ve got to admit – some things are so ugly they have no business being out there and deserve to be roasted online. That’s what happened to these (probably) nice people who were just looking to sell their house online. However, due to the sometimes harsh Internet culture, things took a different turn, and now everyone and their mother now knows about this ugly house in Texas and we think, that you should, too.

More info: Redfin

This seemingly nice house in Texas was put up for sale for $400,000

Image credits: unknown

The description for it seems rather mundane: “Large 4 Br/2 Ba Ranch style home in Leisurewoods. Kitchen and walls painted custom by owner. Detached converted garage, detached office, pool, green room. Large living room/den, and formal dining plus breakfast nook. Furniture is negotiable. Huge lot with mature trees. Historical Texans burial plot in [the] front yard. One of a kind, artistic home with lots of great features.” However, we’ll be honest – the historical Texans burial plot in the front yard has us creeped out just a bit.

As you move to the living room, you feel as if you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole

Image credits: unknown

Pink, so much pink everywhere we swear we can almost taste cotton candy just looking at this home decor. Also, do you think the sofa was put here just for decorative purposes? Judging from the number of cushions put on it, it certainly doesn’t seem to be inviting anyone to sit down and relax on it.

A rabbit hole that is full of floral patterns

Image credits: unknown

This design idea hurts our eyes just a little bit. A painfully overwhelming amount of porcelain figurines, paintings, and drawings that are making us dizzy.

Even though the look of the living room is toned down a bit, it continues with the busy theme of the interior

Image credits: unknown

Let’s be honest – this crappy design looks like the Laura Ashley catalog was chewed up and vomited all over the place. Oh, you said you like decorative cushions? We’ve got loads of them! Plant lover? We’ve got plants on all of the three tables, a dresser, and even the walls.

The other corner of the room is just as decorative and is full of carpets, lamps, and plants

Image credits: unknown

This interior design is the ultimate dream for a hoarder with a touch of OCD – there are so many things in here it’s hard to breathe just from looking at it. However, all the figurines, lamps, flowers, candles, and plants are all placed strategically and lined up neatly.

The kitchen is a prime example of how far the hobby for decoupage can go

Image credits: unknown

There are so many odd features with this home idea, we’re not even sure where to begin. To not get overwhelmed, let’s focus on the fridge first. Have you ever seen a decoupaged fridge? Well, now you have. And there’s even a nice cabbage for you on the stove that goes perfectly with motifs on the fridge.

And it went really far, way too far if you ask us

Image credits: unknown

Have you noticed the tassels dangling down from the drawers? They certainly add that je ne sais quoi to an almost plain-looking kitchen. If it wasn’t for the tassels, the place would definitely lose part of its charm. Luckily, we also have a lot of decoupage going on here and even a leopard fur-patterned lamp to go with a little leopard-y box.

Luckily, the owners spared the dishwasher – but you could decoupage that later too

Image credits: unknown

But wait – there are more bad designs! In case the kitchen is not enough decorative for you, the owners of the house put up some decoupaged plates right by the ceiling so that when you microwave your chicken nuggets you can stare at the beautiful flower compositions.

The master bedroom is equally as impressive as the rest of the house

Image credits: unknown

What else would you expect? Well, certainly not a bunny-shaped bedside table lamp, that’s for sure! It really brings out the pinkness of the drapes and beauty of the paintings with religious scenes.

But we saved the best thing for last, so take a look at the master bathroom

Image credits: unknown

Isn’t it marvelous? The interior is so well thought-out, even the curtains go with the hand towels. Of course, let us not forget the heart-patterned wallpaper and a scribble above the mirror, that says “faith,” so you won’t forget what it’s all about when you brush your teeth half-awake on a dreadful Monday morning.

People on the internet had a lot to say, as usual

I feel like this article is kind of ... mean? Why would you call someone's home ugly? Just because you don't like it? Noone's making you live there. To me it feels like the owner put a lot of love into this house. Whatever that looks like to strangers is inconsequential.

I don't understand why someone should make fun on the internet of someone else's house. Ok, its overdecorated, but it looks clean and tidy. If you don't want to buy it, simply don't do it. Perhaps the actual owner does't like to be mocked by hundreds of strangers.

Declaring someone else's style as ugly is really a highly subjective judgement. There is nothinh inherently amiss in this house. Everything is tidy and in order, there is clearly a proper place for every thing. There is a unifying color scheme for most of the decor. And I would not be surprised to find unifying themes and stories expressed in the pictures, as well. This home is a classic example of "Country" style decorating, a decor style that has been popular throughout the US for decades. Some folks don't like this style, but that doesn't make it objectively ugly.

Yes but in terms of its resale value it is a nightmare. The whole place would have to be striped and repainted. A big job. When I was looking to buy a flat I saw one whoch was decorated similar to this except is was green. Really puts you off even considering it

What people need to realize is that you are buying the house, not the furniture. Sure the kitchen/bathroom cabinets would need to be painted but aside from that, if you look at the rooms, (not the furniture) the house is quite decent overall. A house decorated like this tends to sell cheaply due to the fact that people cannot look past the furniture/decorations (which will be taken away before you move in) and see the potential that is literally a couple gallons of paint away. A neighbor of mine's whole house was decorated on the inside in Christmas style. Literally everything. When they sold the house, the house was listed with all of the decorations in place and the new owners got it for an absolute steal since most people would not consider it after seeing all of the Xmas stuff. When the old owners left, they took all of the Xmas stuff with them and it was a very nice house. The new owners put it back on the market and made almost double immediately.

A good real estate agent would tell them to paint it white and put away the frou frou. People buy houses for all kinds of weird reasons. I know of one that sold because the front door was wide enough for the couch to get through. The rest of the house was falling apart, but the (half worn out) couch fit.

Very reminiscent of the decorative painting I used to in the 90s. Mackenzie Childs was huge, and the natural decorating choice for any former 80s Lisa Frank girl LOL. While I wouldn't choose this overblown decor for my own home, the actual artwork has been executed beautifully (Except that bathroom wall with the gold hearts).

Many of the 'paintings' look like they are actually embroideries and if they are they would have taken a long time. In the bedroom the one that looks like an angel (on the far left) is more likely Leda and the Swan DEFINATELY NOT religious. I recognise several other pictures which may actually be embroideries done by the resident. The taste is definately why have one when 3 or 4 is better. There are some interesting ideas used here. As a crafter I would love to see the craft area if this is a deceased estate I bet that room is overflowing too with ideas that never made it to fruitiion.

I'm reminded of Victorian style... as in, the way they actually used to decorate their homes. Cluttered and fussy. Basically the more things to catch your eye, the better. I mean, somebody put a lot of time and love into that home, but dang. Just looking at pictures of it gives me anxiety.

The decor in this home is overdone and not to most people's taste, but it is definitely NOT "the ultimate dream for a hoarder with a touch of OCD." The person has a great many items, but they are carefully chosen for their decorative effect, carefully arranged, and the place looks very clean. Hoarders pile up tons of old random stuff everywhere, never throw anything out, until it's almost impossible to move around in the house. I agree with Ksenia M. that it's mean to make fun of the house because it's not to your taste. I once saw the front lawn of a house decorated with hundreds of painted animal statuettes of all kinds. It was very corny, but done with so much love and care that it was worthy of admiration.

This House actually has taken lots of time & work by the current owner to be this thoroughly decorated! The article fails to tell us what current owner’s mother has to say about it. It sounds as if ... the mother has Never visited here?! But ... Why sell the house, anyway?! You know the next owner will definitely destroy Each & Everything you have put Your heart & soul into Unless it is somebody with the SAME Taste! Oh, What A Waste!

Whoever wrote this is just plain mean-spirited. Trends change.This was the style in the 80s. The house was decorated with love and the people who owned it grew old. Now it's time to sell. Be gentle you will grow old as well & will need to leave behind the Life you loved. Some smart ass will show picture of the fool who chose to live in a self-imposed minamalist prison cell .

CLEARLY whomever wrote this needs to not use " big words" that they don't understand!! STOP saying the cabinets, etc. have been decoupaged!!!!!! They're painted!!!... by the homeowner. Even the article says that and yet they, and now everyone else commenting, are saying the fridge and cabinets are decoupaged. And....I believe the hearts on the bathroom wall have been painted also.... Not wallpaper! And... it's bad enough that they are making fun of the homeowners, belittling their artwork and personal style.... but, did they have to make fun of their Faith too?? That's low. Just sayin...

The style has consistency and I think that's what separates it from just plain clutter and random decor. To some, it may be over-the-top (me included), but that depends on an individual's aesthetic taste. Judging from the comments, people generally like it. Personally, I am a minimalist, but I don't consider my lifestyle as a template for everyone. I just like it when there's not a lot of stuff around where I live. But this house is highly personalized for the person who lives there.

This article is very mean-spirited. The house is actually fairly well decorated for this type of interior and the owners have a lot of creativity. It's quite artistic and unique, I love that kitchen. It may be a little crowded and I'm not a big fan of pink interiors, but it's still more appealing to me than the minimalist, colorless bland styles that are popular today.

It’s not that bad remove the ugly patterned upholstery on furniture and drapes. get some solids like light greens blues yellows to brighten up the place. It’s not that bad. The paintings are cute and remind me of Beatrix Potter. I used to love Victorian. Devore when I was little. Now I prefer more traditional. But Beatrix Potter kitch is not so horrible if done right. And this is not. The kitchen & bathroom are adorable. The living dinning room not quite there yet. Needs solids. And too dark needs brightening. Solid light yellows blues and greeens would do it!

I think it looks like someone had a ton of fun making their home look exactly the way they wanted it. Now, they clearly had no thought as to resale value, and they're asking a bit much for something that will have to be completely re-done inside (although, we don't actually know the average price of homes in that neighborhood, unless someone wants to google it). It grosses me out, but I don't have to live there. So, as long as it's just a bit much "whimsy" and not a Texas Chainsaw Massacre theme ... live and let live.

Small minded people can get confused when there is too much to look at. Perhaps one wall could be plain white so that they can stand and look at it when the overwhelming beautiful of color and form gets too much for the little guys. Place it out view of the rest of the house though as not to bore the rest of us.

I can imagine all those rooms stripped down and painted earth tones to match the outside. There's a lot of potential in a 2,200 square foot ranch style rambler. You just need to remember that whatever you do to a house, it's not permanent. New owners won't care how you decorated it.

Well, that’s vomitorious. Thankfully the owner would take all that ugly garbage with them when they move, because if they tried to leave it, I’d fire it all off to the local landfill. ...///... We’re looking at houses now, and this is not our first rodeo. Paint is the easiest, cheapest renovation you could do. ALWAYS paint first. I haven’t seen a single place where I wouldn’t rip out the kitchen anyway, so that’s not a big deal. ...///... I’d also redo the bathrooms and rip out most of the flooring before I’d move in. ...///... This is dreadful, but it’s easily changed. And they aren’t going to get $400,000.00 for it. No buyer would take it unless they discounted the price steeply. Renovations don’t come cheap.

No disrespect for anyone who likes this, but it is not my taste at all. I mean, I'm not a fan of bare, sterile rooms; I prefer a combination of clean lines and comfort; basically a tiny fraction of this---but without an inch of decoupage. It's just that I would never be able to relax in any room of this house. Not. At. All. It's way too busy, and I don't care for pink except as a sparingly used accent color (I was the only girl after 4 boys, so my mother insisted I have a girly pink room, without considering that I might not like the color that much. When I was 16, I finally convinced her how much I wanted to get rid of the pink, and was so happy when she let me paint it a lovely, serene light blue). Lastly, I'm exhausted and headachy just thinking of the amount of exertion---or money---it would take to keep all those ruffles, flounces, and other OTT fantasy-Victorian frou-frous clean!

This is why, when you sell a house, the realtor tells you to paint the walls white, clear out art and personal effects, and let them STAGE THE HOUSE in a super neutral way.

Ah, yes, the way Estate Agents stage a house. As one of several girls sharing a rental that was to be sold we were given a list of what to do before making ourselves scarce for an "Open Day". Things like remove all budget products from the bathroom and replace them with high priced luxury brand toiletries. Leave at least one bedroom drawer slightly open to display sexy lingerie and replace the cheap wine in the kitchen with something "decent". Left us in no doubt what sort of new landlord to expect!

I don't understand why someone should make fun on the internet of someone else's house. Ok, its overdecorated, but it looks clean and tidy. If you don't want to buy it, simply don't do it. Perhaps the actual owner does't like to be mocked by hundreds of strangers.

Lyone Fein

Declaring someone else's style as ugly is really a highly subjective judgement. There is nothinh inherently amiss in this house. Everything is tidy and in order, there is clearly a proper place for every thing. There is a unifying color scheme for most of the decor. And I would not be surprised to find unifying themes and stories expressed in the pictures, as well. This home is a classic example of "Country" style decorating, a decor style that has been popular throughout the US for decades. Some folks don't like this style, but that doesn't make it objectively ugly.

Yes but in terms of its resale value it is a nightmare. The whole place would have to be striped and repainted. A big job. When I was looking to buy a flat I saw one whoch was decorated similar to this except is was green. Really puts you off even considering it

What people need to realize is that you are buying the house, not the furniture. Sure the kitchen/bathroom cabinets would need to be painted but aside from that, if you look at the rooms, (not the furniture) the house is quite decent overall. A house decorated like this tends to sell cheaply due to the fact that people cannot look past the furniture/decorations (which will be taken away before you move in) and see the potential that is literally a couple gallons of paint away. A neighbor of mine's whole house was decorated on the inside in Christmas style. Literally everything. When they sold the house, the house was listed with all of the decorations in place and the new owners got it for an absolute steal since most people would not consider it after seeing all of the Xmas stuff. When the old owners left, they took all of the Xmas stuff with them and it was a very nice house. The new owners put it back on the market and made almost double immediately.

A good real estate agent would tell them to paint it white and put away the frou frou. People buy houses for all kinds of weird reasons. I know of one that sold because the front door was wide enough for the couch to get through. The rest of the house was falling apart, but the (half worn out) couch fit.

Many of the 'paintings' look like they are actually embroideries and if they are they would have taken a long time. In the bedroom the one that looks like an angel (on the far left) is more likely Leda and the Swan DEFINATELY NOT religious. I recognise several other pictures which may actually be embroideries done by the resident. The taste is definately why have one when 3 or 4 is better. There are some interesting ideas used here. As a crafter I would love to see the craft area if this is a deceased estate I bet that room is overflowing too with ideas that never made it to fruitiion.

The decor in this home is overdone and not to most people's taste, but it is definitely NOT "the ultimate dream for a hoarder with a touch of OCD." The person has a great many items, but they are carefully chosen for their decorative effect, carefully arranged, and the place looks very clean. Hoarders pile up tons of old random stuff everywhere, never throw anything out, until it's almost impossible to move around in the house. I agree with Ksenia M. that it's mean to make fun of the house because it's not to your taste. I once saw the front lawn of a house decorated with hundreds of painted animal statuettes of all kinds. It was very corny, but done with so much love and care that it was worthy of admiration.

CLEARLY whomever wrote this needs to not use " big words" that they don't understand!! STOP saying the cabinets, etc. have been decoupaged!!!!!! They're painted!!!... by the homeowner. Even the article says that and yet they, and now everyone else commenting, are saying the fridge and cabinets are decoupaged. And....I believe the hearts on the bathroom wall have been painted also.... Not wallpaper! And... it's bad enough that they are making fun of the homeowners, belittling their artwork and personal style.... but, did they have to make fun of their Faith too?? That's low. Just sayin...

The style has consistency and I think that's what separates it from just plain clutter and random decor. To some, it may be over-the-top (me included), but that depends on an individual's aesthetic taste. Judging from the comments, people generally like it. Personally, I am a minimalist, but I don't consider my lifestyle as a template for everyone. I just like it when there's not a lot of stuff around where I live. But this house is highly personalized for the person who lives there.

This article is very mean-spirited. The house is actually fairly well decorated for this type of interior and the owners have a lot of creativity. It's quite artistic and unique, I love that kitchen. It may be a little crowded and I'm not a big fan of pink interiors, but it's still more appealing to me than the minimalist, colorless bland styles that are popular today.

It’s not that bad remove the ugly patterned upholstery on furniture and drapes. get some solids like light greens blues yellows to brighten up the place. It’s not that bad. The paintings are cute and remind me of Beatrix Potter. I used to love Victorian. Devore when I was little. Now I prefer more traditional. But Beatrix Potter kitch is not so horrible if done right. And this is not. The kitchen & bathroom are adorable. The living dinning room not quite there yet. Needs solids. And too dark needs brightening. Solid light yellows blues and greeens would do it!

I think it looks like someone had a ton of fun making their home look exactly the way they wanted it. Now, they clearly had no thought as to resale value, and they're asking a bit much for something that will have to be completely re-done inside (although, we don't actually know the average price of homes in that neighborhood, unless someone wants to google it). It grosses me out, but I don't have to live there. So, as long as it's just a bit much "whimsy" and not a Texas Chainsaw Massacre theme ... live and let live.

Small minded people can get confused when there is too much to look at.
