This unique $5.3 million home for sale in Northern California is mostly sleek and modern, but then there’s a hulking, oversized stone fireplace that seems to be growing out of the floor between the living and dining room areas. And I’m not quite sure what to make of it.
I usually love stone fireplaces, but this one looks a little sinister to me, like it eats furniture at night while you’re sleeping…and maybe a family pet or two. And every day it gets a little bigger, until it takes over the entire house. (Okay, so maybe I have an overactive imagination like my 2nd grade teacher said!)
The house has won several awards, including Metropolitan Home magazine’s designation as one of the Top 10 Houses of 2005, so I may be the only one who isn’t crazy about it.
What do you think? Do you like it or is it creeping you out a little, too?
(Thanks to Cindy for finding this one! The listing was just removed, so it must have sold.)
