The listing for this lurid three-bedroom home calls it "undoubtedly the most unique residence in downtown Minneapolis," and we'd be inclined to agree. With a kitchen reminiscent of one Jules Verne–channeling New York apartment, the place looks straight out of some modern take on a dark fairytale; think Hansel and Gretel set in the American midwest.
