Phallus-shaped Australian house was apparently designed like that on purpose

That makes it...better?

Looking at the floorplan for this four-bedroom home in a suburb of Sydney, Australia, you might be tempted to say to yourself: "Ha ha! Some architect accidentally designed that house to look kind of like a penis!" You would be wrong, though. Apparently the architect did that on purpose.

The house was designed in 1958 by architect Stan Symonds. "He is a very bright fellow, so I imagine he probably does know it is shaped as the way it is," a former listing agent told a reporter the last time the house was on the market in March of 2015, adding that the now-former owners "think it is a bit tongue in cheek."

The house is now back on the market for between $1.37 million and $1.5 million, and the new listing makes no mention of its unique shape. It does say, however, that is located on 1,204 square meters of "lush bushland" and that it is a "superb entry point for families into this exclusive area," so make of that what you will.
