‘Trying to kill me’: TikTok exposes terrifying feature in home

·2-min read

A TikTok account has shared a video dedicated to what might be the most intimidating staircase ever.

Zillow Gone Wild, or @zillowgonewild, is a TikTok account which showcases some of the wildest features of homes listed for sale on US real estate website Zillow.

A few days ago, the account featured a three-bedroom home in Charleston, South Carolina, which is listed for $499,000, or roughly $A642,350.

"I just saw this crazy house on Zillow and what are those stairs," the account's creator says in the video.

"They're trying to kill me."

The stairs are quite steep, but that is perhaps the least intimidating thing about them — a plank of wood runs from top to bottom, with the actual steps staggered up the plank resembling a ladder more than a staircase.

"I immediately envisioned my foot going through those holes and my foot snapping," one person said in the comments.

Someone else referred to them as a "death trap", while a few pointed out they would likely be very difficult to navigate after a few alcoholic beverages.

“For half a million dollars I expect real stairs,” someone else remarked.

Another person said the home looked like a tiny home "gone wrong".

The Charleston home is quite narrow, judging by the photos, but the images also show there are "real stairs" inside, right near the kitchen.

In addition to the three bedrooms, the home also has four full bathrooms.

This isn't the first staircase which has raised some question on TikTok. Earlier this year, a very strange staircase put a family off a home they were inspecting.

The staircase, which featured alternating tread stairs, went viral on TikTok.

"We said hell no to these stairs," the post's caption read.
