To balance out the sexiness of Hottest Week, we'll be featuring rather hideous houses, which should help with the site's chi. If you see a garish, gaudy or ghastly listing, feel free to send it to the tipline.
Once again we're back in the bathroom of another luxury listing and once again, it's a 1980s special. Glass blocks? Check. Steps up to jacuzzi? Check. Brass fixtures? Check. Beige and more beige? Check and check. Now that we've calibrated, we can move on to the rest of the home, referred to in the listing as "eclectic," without causing a shock. The waterfront Barnstable Village "contemporary, architecturally designed home" hit the market in February asking $2,985,000 and a July pricechop brought the asking price down $235K to the current $2,750,000. The brokerbabble makes the best of the cattywampus interior by noting,"The spacious angled rooms all have their own personality and leave you mesmerized with the ever changing views afforded to you." So readers, will views of Sandy Neck and Barnstable Harbor plus a "small sandy area" (would that also be known as a beach?) mesmerize a buyer or is another pricechop imminent?
