Let’s All Move into This Alien-Filled, Time Travel House Going Viral on Twitter
Growing up, they always taught us that it’s what’s on the inside that counts. And sometimes, that goes for real estate, too. In the last week, a unique Pittsburgh property has been making the rounds on social media, and while it may look quite unassuming at first glance, the interiors certainly dole out a surprise or two… or twenty.
“Do you like Fun & Adventure?” the listing description reads for the three-bed, one-bath home, currently on the market for $169,000. From the outside, the 1,079-square-foot brick home, which was built in 1969, looks like a typical ranch that’s been converted into a two-story home.
A lush backyard features a grassy yard and swimming pool, which is “under warranty,” according to the listing. There’s also a comfortable patio space for entertaining, with wisteria gliding over the pergola.
But the moment you walk in the door, things take a bit of a turn. Step inside to the sunken living room, where a beamed ceiling cascades overhead. There are hardwood floors and a brick fireplace, plus an elevated library that’s reachable by ladder. But turn your head and you’re greeted by a series of unusual twists, like an outer space wall mural. And don’t worry about feeling lonely in quarantine, because talking space aliens greet you when you enter.
The dining room has been converted into a “command center,” with a rear wall that opens up to “spaceship main bridge-working computer and controls from an Apache helicopter,” along with speakers and a 55-inch TV screen.
A pocket door leads into a galley kitchen, where you’ll find a hatch door that opens into the laundry area, along with a storage and workshop space. Follow the spiral staircase to the second floor, which has a cozy den area, along with three bedrooms.
One of those bedrooms is perfect for anyone stuck at home, because who needs a real beach vacation when you have a tropical-theme bedroom? A floor of sand and seashells sits under walls emblazoned with oceanfront murals, which continues into a wooden nautical-themed sleeping area. Just turn some beach waves on your sound machine, and you’re good to go.
There’s also a self-described “1970 Hippie Crash Pad Bedroom,” complete with a queen water bed, because it’s definitely time for those to come back in style.
While it’s probably unlikely that the new owners will maintain all the unique characteristics of the property, it’s still fun to think that some lucky buyer will be hurtling through outer space in their living room someday.
