It’s time 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.
The idea for this series stems from the ongoing forum thread Detrimental Listing Photos, which is where you should post your nominations for next month’s Real Actual Listing Photos post.
No particular theme this month, just a series of odd photos I found on new-ish Seattle listings north of downtown.
Enough explanation. Let’s get to the photos! Click the photo to view the Real Actual Listing.
“Casual elegance welcomes you…”
Come! Come and be welcomed by “casual elegance,” a.k.a. Dr. Zomb, who will apparently be watching you as you use the toilet and take a shower with no curtain. (view full size to fully appreciate Dr. Zomb).
“don’t miss this opportunity!”
So, is the “Handy Paint Cup” included in the $430,000 price? I need to know. Note that this is the listing’s only interior photo.
“Truly a remarkable joint venture of man and nature not easily found!”
I am honestly not really sure what feature of this “remarkable joint venture” I’m looking at here.
“The bathrooms are comfortably customized.”
This photo brought to you in stunning 2-D ToddlerVision™. I guess that’s one way to avoid appearing in the mirror when you photograph the bathroom.
“Two separate entrances.”
Of course, one of them is blocked by a serving table, despite being so important that it’s the only part of the photo exposed well enough to see.
“Completely Redone Craftsman in great Ballard Neighborhood!”
…and by “completely redone” we mean in 1950, when covering every possible surface with wood paneling (even the ceiling) was the hot design trend. So much wood paneling it apparently overwhelmed the camera’s ability to focus.
Let me know if you have an idea for a future “Real Actual Listing Photos” theme.
