Real Actual Listing Photos: Blinded by the Silverware Drawer

It’s time once again for another installment of Real Actual Listing Photos. Once a month (or so) I round up some of the most bizarre listing photos from around the Seattle area and post them here, with brief excerpts from the real actual listing description, and probably a bit of snarky commentary.

For a daily dose of crazy listings from all over the world, tune into Looney Listing, which is updated five times as a week. If you’ve got a nomination for a listing photo that should appear here, drop me a line.

No particular theme this month. Just enjoy a collection of odd listing photos found by readers and yours truly.

Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.

412 160th Ave SE, Bellevue, WA 98008“You’ll like it when you drive up, but when you look out the kitchen window and see the back yard, you’ll fall in love.”

You’ll like it when you drive up, but you’ll also be blinded, so you won’t really get to appreciate the rest of the home. Found by Graham.

1237 3rd Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109“Lighting, leaded prisim wndows & more by WA artisans”

I wonder which Washington artisan crafts those crazy windows that glow bright yellow at dusk?

716 Hilltop Ave N, Kent, WA 98031“Custom Hardwood Cabinets w/ spice & cup shelves, dividers & underlighting.”

Also: drawers capable of holding silverware!

3115 Fairview Ave E, Seattle, WA 98102“Floating homes? Mixed use? Yacht Condominium Moorage? All of the above?”

Even the listing agent doesn’t seem to know for sure what’s being sold here.

23020 NE 28th St, Sammamish, WA 98074“Opportunity knocks in Sammamish!”

Apparently Opportunity knocks on the ceiling. Found by Beth T.

14001 Evanston Ave N, Seattle, WA 98133“One of a kind LOCATION!”

I bet your house doesn’t have those kinds of curves!

Let me know if you have an idea for a future “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme, and be sure to check out Looney Listing for listing photo amusement throughout the month.

    Interesting listing – property listed as 3BR, but public comments say “3rd bedroom has been converted to large home office with built-ins-open to living room.”

    Again, I say if MLS had a bounty on rules violations the world would be a better place.

    On the waterfront listing, I have to agree w/ the listing – it is an unusual property. I suspect Redfin would not service that property, but they haven’t figured that out, despite the zoning.

    On the silverware listing, I also have to respectfully disagree – that photo is buried in the middle of a bunch of decent photos. I suspect the photo is supposed to show that even the drawers are built from honest-to-goodness wood. The property definitely had the “late 50’s early 60’s height of America” look.
