Illinois’ Viral ‘Goth House’Get Yours for Only $250K

The Illinois home is known as the “goth house”It is currently on the market for $250,000 New York Post reported.

This price seems reasonable considering the current market for real estate.

The Instagram account went viral with the photo of the home “Zillow Gone Wild,”According to New York Post, it is an all-black, octogon-shaped house that occupies half an acre.

The Lincoln home is less than two weeks old and features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and just over 1,500 sq feet. According to the listing,

The interior of the home features nothing but black, white, and grey décor. It is something that a character like Elvira or maybe even what Catherine O’Hara’s character Delia Deetz in “Beetlejuice”I would conjure it up.

Seth Goodman, Realtor, bought the house in August for only $75,000. He shared his story with Fox 2He was fascinated by the unusually shaped house and renovated it to make it more appealing for re-sale.

Goodman didn’t seem to want to create the all-black home but it just sort of happened along the way after he installed a black roof, then wanted matching gutters, eventually went for matching siding before he possibly heard the words of Mick Jagger in his head saying, “Paint it Black.”

Fox 2 reported that Goodman said he went to the interior to match what he saw outside. It is not known if the Rolling Stones and horror movies remained in his subconscious as a factor in his motif.
