'Wildest' feature inside 'weird' $4.9 million mansion

·3-min read

A TikTok user has stumbled upon what might just be the most bizarre home, which is currently listed online for a staggering US$3.7 million (A$4.9 million).

Katy Wood, an author and illustrator, says she enjoys looking at weird and whacky homes for sale that are out of her price range because it's "fun to dream".

Recently, the TikTok user shared a unique property she found online which she described as being the "wildest, best thing in Buena Vista, Colorado".

The home is actually a four-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion, which comes with a replica mine shaft.

It is currently listed online and according to real estate site Zillow, the home sits on 35 acres, was built in 1995 and its three storeys are accessible via an elevator.

"The lower level features 2 private en-suite guest rooms and a replica mine shaft," the listing says. 

"The main level provides the owner repose with an artist studio, separate bedroom and deck, a grand master with dual walk-in closets with private baths, a jetted tub, sunken master bed, gas fireplace and sun room."

The home was designed and built by an automobile magazine publisher, so understandably there's an 11-car garage, according to the listing.

In Wood's TikTok, she takes viewers through the home like a virtual real estate agent pointing out the peculiar features of the house such as a replica mining shaft which "drops off into nothingness" like a "bad Western".

"And then on the other side it's got this like weird thin sunroom protrusion," she says in the video.

The decor of the home is equally extravagant.  

"Okay, there's a lot of aesthetics going on here but imagine the D&D [Dungeons and Dragons] games you could have at that table," Wood says, showing pictures of a long, grand dining table.

"Look at this frickin' castle living room and there's like a rock wall on this support pole, and there's like a dumb waiter to bring all your firewood up into the house," she says.

Judging by the pictures on Zillow, there appears to be several cozy nooks throughout the home and several places to entertain people.

The bedrooms look incredibly spacious though in the comments of the video, people were confused how a house of that size only has four bedrooms.

In the comments, Wood suggested people look at the 3D tour of the home, flagging there's an assortment of artwork seen throughout the home, some bizarre signage and one bathroom which appears to be fully carpeted.  

"Someone give me $3.75 million, because I want this thing, it's so weird I want it," Wood says.

People in the comments of Wood's video were also in awe of the home.

"The most incredible house I've seen in ages," one person said.

"I can understand why you'd want it!"

A few people noted it looked like something you may build in The Sims or Minecraft. 

However, not everyone was a fan.

"This makes me so irrationally angry," one person said.

"I wanna throw hands with the 'architect'."
