Hi everyone, this is my first topic in this forum. I'm not a real estate expert myself, but I would like your opinion on this really interesting (if somewhat uncanny) property I found while browsing Redfin, which some corners of the internet call "the Endless House" or the "real" House of Leaves. I found it by way of YouTube, where a guy livestreamed himself doing Redfin's 3D walkthrough of said property.
Here's the property on Redfin: https://www.redfin.com/KY/Louisville/8800-Blue-Lick-Rd-40219/home/84240362
(Redfin apparently disabled the 3D walkthrough—probably because a lot of people were touring the house virtually—but you can find it here.)
I did some digging and found it had, uh, history. Like this one and this one. It looked to be a hoarder's hovel, or else a warehouse full of shoplifted stuff, but the layout is simply weird. I actually tried the tour myself and got lost and promptly panicked, because it's like it was designed by an AI that doesn't understand how actual humans lay interiors out.
As real estate experts, what's your take on this? If someone tries to sell you this kind of property, how would you react? Conversely, if you were to sell it, how would you go about it? Is there any way to make it sort of palatable for buyers given its history and strangeness? In any case, what's your personal and professional take on this property? I just found this really interesting and was wondering if you have insight on these kinds of properties.
As for the title, this house reminds me of that horror novel called House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski, where the house in question is bigger inside than it is outside, with all sorts of creepy shenanigans.
