This Post Office-Turned-House in the Mojave Desert Is Just the Strangest Thing in the World

New, 7 comments

It seems wrong to even call this property in Twentynine Palms, California a house, though it is definitely set up as some sort of residence, converted—but not too converted—from a municipal building. As the listing explains:

This is the pink building that used to be the Post office many years ago & now transformed into a Soho Style Loft in the Desert by a New York Fashion Designer. This iddlic [sic] setting has fabulous views of the surrounding desert and mountains. [...] There is a Men's and Ladies public bathroom and a room with 8 private tub/shower Stalls. Ample storage & a walk in Vault. So, yeah. That's pretty much it. We'd love to know who that fashion designer is, but when a listing has already given you a purple carpeted meditation area, straight up public restrooms with urinals, "several Pyramids that in the past were set up as private guest quarters" (sorry—forgot to mention the pyramids earlier), and oddly specific demographic information about the neighborhood (there are 1,669 divorced people living nearby, in case you were curious, perhaps it's best not to look a gift horse in the mouth.
