Houston has clear shoo-ins for, say, the creepiest doll-filled house, the craziest wallpapering job, and the most '80s abode, but here are two properties battling it out to claim the title of the city's weirdest kitchen. Below, a closer look at both.

10731 Braes Bayou Drive:

? Every room in this four-bedroom house looks pristine and well maintained, yet the bold wall colors will certainly be a turn-off to the lion's share of buyers. Meanwhile, a "festive kitchen" that had been custom-designed by the previous owner is equipped with skylights over the island; apparently it also plays off the "hacienda-style architecture and decor found throughout the home." On the up side, the owners are willing to negotiate in all their furniture, appliances, and electronics. Current ask: $310K. 15910 Marwick Court:

? Meanwhile, here's a "STUNNING" four-bedroom with a "kitchen right out of a magazine," according to the brokerbabble, which also suggests one "prepare those fabulous meals with space to move around in." Recent updates include new granite countertops and a new backsplash, plus an 11-foot-long bar. And if the fake fruit and flowers that dominate the pot rack seem a bit, well, much, have a gander at the rest of the home, which is listed for $219,500. · 10731 Braes Bayou Dr., Houston, Texas [HAR via Swamplot]
