In This Trophy Room, There Are No Winners

by hookedonhouses on February 25, 2010

Animal house-exterior

This Tudor-style home with a slate roof is on the market in Wisconsin for $650,000. It has four bedrooms, a large wooded yard with a waterfall pond, and a four-car garage. The agent describes it as “elegant yet deceiving.” That’s one way to put it! When you step inside, you may be surprised by what you see:

Animal house-zebras

That’s right–stuffed zebras. A pair of them. Step into the den and you’ll find what I’m going to guess is not a faux zebra-skin…

Animal House-den

And finally, just when you’ve seen enough dead critters for one “elegant yet deceiving” house, there is what the agent refers to as “The Trophy Room:”

Animal House-trophy room

How would you caption this listing?

P.S. Thanks to Mary, the reader who sent me these photos. If you find something unusual in the real estate listings, e-mail me the link!

Oh.my.gawd! I wonder how many realtors told them to “get rid of the dead animals before listing” before they got one that would list the house as-is.

Amy February 25, 2010 at 8:36 am

Cripes, my realtor had a fit because one of our bathrooms has dark green tile trim (from the previous owners). She insisted there was no way we could list it without removing the trim first. How can these people get away with listing a house full of dead animals?!

Richella at Imparting Grace February 25, 2010 at 8:38 am

That’s not a trophy room; that’s a zoo. Or a taxidermy showroom. Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom meets the Addams Family.

Perhaps a tactful realtor should have encouraged them to rent a storage building?

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions February 25, 2010 at 9:05 am

“Deceiving” is putting it mildly! I saw the exterior shot and thought what a beautiful home. Then the first interior shot and I said, “Oh my God” out loud {and I’m sitting here by myself}. I would never have made it past the foyer if I had been taken to look at this house; I don’t care how lovely the outside is. That’s some scary stuff going on in there.

Susan February 25, 2010 at 9:06 am

If they were serious about selling- the animal kingdom would be gone. Often I blame the agent for not having a backbone. Agents need to encourage the seller to list the home in the best possible light. Often we as stagers are used as the “bad cop” so agents don’t offend and lose a listing.

I love a good belly laugh over bad MLS’. Thanks

Sara @ Russet Street Reno February 25, 2010 at 10:14 am

Uhhhhh, this is quite embarrassing for those of us in Wisconsin that don’t hunt, fish, stuff, taxidermy or display our treasured ‘kills’. I can only hope these people are located way up in boofoo northern WI and not in the Milwaukee area! And I also hope no one buys this offensive home.

I was going to use the caption that Mary above used, “Where the Wild Things Are”. It must be these homeowners’ goal to help further along the extinction of certain animals! Being originally from Louisiana, I’m used to seeing the occasional deer head on a wall, which I have always found offensive. But this is so over-the-top obscene I have no words! It’s really a shame too, because prospective buyers would be so distracted by all those eyes looking at them that they would never see what truly could be a lovely house .

The Outside looks nice and charming, but the inside is so terrifying. I almost didn’t notice that plasma tv. It’s a good thing those animals don’t come to life or that would be a problem. These people need “Design to Sell” to come and help sell their house.

There’s could be so much potential in this house, if the house didn’t reflect the homeowners so much. Realtors have said on HGTV, that a selling home should not reflect the owners personality and I agree.

I don’t know about you guys, but when I see a house like this, it makes me want to go fix up the house and make it feel more inviting.

Don’t be so fast to judge. It might not be a man’s decor. I live here in Wisconsin and know many women (single and married) who are avid hunters. Many of them decorate at least one room in their homes in this style. Well, not with zebras though. That’s just wrong. Doesn’t belong in a Wisconsin home.

By the way, where can I find the MLS listing?

I don’t know what everyone is crying about with these animals-Look at the fireplace -there is still blank space on the walls around it- perhaps he could have set out a few mouse and rat traps to fill in the gaps

Sick and wrong!

Oh, I laughed out loud when I saw these FABULOUSLY horrific real estate pics! That living room with the wild kingdom motif really rings true in my neck of the woods, The Catskills. But weaving in the zebras with the presumably indigenous deer/bear/moose is pure genius. I have to link to this page from my site. As a weary broker after a long day of showings, this is the perfect tonic!

OMG!!! This is hilarious. “What Not to Wear” for MLS listings.

Mercy, this makes a vegetarian gag. I saw a room similar to this in a listing for a beachfront home in (get this) Grand Cayman a year or two back.

Salad for supper tonite!

I’m surprised the jockey doesn’t have a carcass hanging from arm. That was disturbing.

To be honest I have always thought what obscenity means – but this word has become an entirely new meaning for me now. What kind of people lived in this house? Ghouls?

It is appropriate time to make some plans for the longer term and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I may just I desire to suggest you some attention-grabbing things or suggestions. Maybe you can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I wish to read more issues about it!
