A suburban Las Vegas home filled to the brim with a chaotic collection of statues, mounted animal heads, and baroque furniture drew curiosity seekers on social media. The residence jampacked with knickknacks earned a ton of clicks and is the week’s most popular home on realtor.com®.
Aside from the bright magnolia exterior, the home looks like any other suburban, single-family house. But the interiors are a whole different story.
Hundreds of sets of eyes follow you from room to room—there are life-size mannequins, dolls, moose heads, and religious statuary throughout. Even the furniture in the photos appears to have been transported from a different time and place. All of these things must have meant a great deal to the owner, which is perhaps what makes these particular pictures so appealing. It’s a peek into someone else’s strange and private world.
You also clicked on the most expensive home in Kansas, a wild converted schoolhouse in Colorado, and a fancy Ohio spread being sold by a local auto magnate.
If there’s a common thread to be found throughout this week’s list of most popular homes, it’s the idea that home can be a world you create all your own.
But don’t take our word for it—scroll on down and survey these 10 popular properties for yourself.
Why it’s here: With peppy pink exterior paint and the sweet moniker of Harmony Acre Farm, this property comes with its own self-sustaining garden, orchard, and greenhouse. You’ll also find a barn, two-story outbuilding, and garage. The main house was built in 1908 and has been well-maintained over the decades. It features a custom kitchen, hardwood and tile flooring, and a new roof.
Why it’s here: Known as the Crosby house, this mansion from 1867 is a slice of local history. Elegant and light-filled, the eight-bedroom home retains many original details, including the hardwood floors, banisters, crown molding, and French doors. The quarter-acre lot features mature landscaping and a heated pool.
Why it’s here: A potential candidate to appear on HGTV’s “Home Town,” it’s ideal for a buyer who wants to settle down and entice Ben and Erin Napier to do a televised refresh.
This four-bedroom home in the heart of Laurel was built in 1920 and has 10-foot ceilings throughout, an elevator, and a grand entryway. The lower level is highlighted by a formal dining room as well as a sunroom. Upstairs, the master suite includes a sun porch.
Why it’s here: Go modern in the country’s heartland. For a style-seeking buyer in Iowa, this brand-new, three-bedroom ranch sits on a half-acre. The residence has an open floor plan with oversize windows plus a back deck overlooking a wooded yard.
Why it’s here: Built in 1940 and recently updated, this three-bedroom cabin sits on 3 wooded acres near nature trails, campgrounds, and wineries. A new owner can choose to take in the view on one of the home’s two decks. The property comes with a storage building and plenty of room to expand.
Why it’s here: This historic schoolhouse was converted into a 4,343-square-foot residence, which is long on style but decidedly short on personal space.
The upstairs bathroom is situated in the middle of the bedroom and has no walls for privacy. A spare “bedroom” on the first floor looks a little like a cross between a dorm and a hospital ward. And while the institutional feel is a bit hard to shake, there’s also plenty of style. For a buyer who’s not demure, this could be the find of a lifetime.
Why it’s here: The priciest place in Kansas was built as a world-class resort with outdoor amenities, including a 35-foot waterfall with pool and grotto, cliff diving, and scuba tunnels.
Built in 1993, the mansion was renovated and expanded in the early 2000s. It includes commercial-grade kitchens, a two-story office, massive library, and miles of paved paths for walking or riding golf carts throughout the 15-acre estate.
Why it’s here: Linden Hill is a 68-acre estate on Pennsylvania’s Main Line. Built in 1930, the main house is in excellent condition, according to the listing.
Designed for a mogul, the property was once owned by the Dorrance family, of the Campbell Soup company. Today, the French Normandy–style home is outfitted with every modern amenity. Luxury highlights include two pools, a manor house, homes for staff, and tennis courts.
Why it’s here: A massive country estate on a 172-acre parcel is being sold by the Sarchione family, which owns a collection of local car dealerships.
The grand 14,400-square-foot main house boasts views in every direction. The grounds include a stocked lake, a show barn, and a pool.
Why it’s here: The decor is must-see! Listing photos show a three-bedroom home packed with decorative items everywhere, showcasing a distinct point of view.
It features an eccentric collection of statues, religious artifacts, and bright colors, which all join forces to create a space that will make you question everything you thought you knew about interior design (and maybe everything else). If you can manage to see past the hundreds of sets of eyes following you around, the place has loads of potential and sits right across from a neighborhood park.
