A unique home for just $80,000 seems like it might be too good to be true, but in the case of one Texas listing, it can become a reality for the right homeowner. That is, of course, if you’re okay with living inside a literal pyramid, as the one-bedroom, one-bath abode looks like it came straight out of ancient Egypt.

Located in Fort Davis, Texas, the pyramid-shaped structure includes more than 2,100 square feet of living space, a half acre of land, and stunning mountain views — and it really is a pyramid house. Built in 1986, this certainly isn’t your average cookie-cutter single family home, but it could be the perfect landing pad for a buyer with an eye for something outside the box.

Unfortunately, there are no pictures or video of the home’s interiors, and the listing includes little information about any amenities that might be offered. Naturally, it’s causing a stir on Zillow Gone Wild, with Instagram commenters chuckling over the potential reasons why there’s a lack of photos showing the inside of the house.

“No interior photos? Feels like some kind of scheme,” wrote one person. A pyramid scheme, perhaps, as another joked, “This house wants to tell me I haven’t aged a day since high school and tell me about a great business opportunity.” Another warily asked: “No interior pictures makes me very very nervous. What do we think is hiding in there?” 

Some were downright skeptical, with one person writing: “Okay. No interior pictures. Some fog in the background of some pictures. Nope. I’m out. Not buying that cursed potato shed, no matter how cheap the price is.” On the upside, one person remarked: “It’s got good bones.”

Only time will tell if the right buyer finds their way to this unconventional house, but it’s definitely not like most other mid-’80s builds on the block, that’s for sure.
