Talk about bang for your buck. Over on Zillow, a listing for $9.95 million will not only get you a Brooklyn townhouse, but also your very own 1950s diner.

The 7,000-square-foot property, located right on Prospect Park West, features six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a dining room and kitchen with a bay-windowed breakfast nook. It also has a library and office, a powder room, a laundry room, six fireplaces, and a spacious living room with a turn-of-the-century chandelier and a wraparound balcony on the second floor.

According to the listing, the 25-foot-wide pre-war gem boasts elegant, impeccably-restored interiors that include “rich wood trim; extensive, intricate woodwork; tasteful moldings and millwork throughout.”

Outside, the townhouse has a landscaped front courtyard, a private backyard, a petite second-floor terrace, and a roof deck with stunning views of New York City skyline.

Of course, its most notable feature is the 1950s-inspired diner and ice cream parlor on the garden level. A stark contrast to the ornate architectural style of the rest of the home, the colorful space features a tin ceiling, a vintage refrigerator, and even old-fashioned furniture and light fixtures.

Some might find the ice cream parlor room as strange, but many think it adds character to the place. It even went viral on Twitter recently after user @imjasondiamond posted: 

“My wife sent me this Zillow listing and said ‘Just scroll.’ I’m glad I did because the big reveal makes me think this home really is worth nine million.”

Another user added that the photos in the listing doesn’t give the unique room justice. Here’s what the diner looks like with the lights turned on and the shelves stocked.
