I like it.

With that much acreage,  that sounds like a good deal.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:11:58 PM EDT
Yeah I might be against the popular opinion but I’d buy it

Terribly dated. Property is nice.

I gotta guess its some architect's monument to himself.

One of my uncles was an architect and his homes were all WTF.

Me too.

If I were in that price range I'd live there.  I don't care about resale because I'll be dead and I have no one to leave it to.

Different looking, but not bad.  I wouldn't be opposed to it.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:13:43 PM EDT
I like it too.  If I had a work-from-home type job I'd be all over it.

Kinda cool, but needs moar garage  
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:14:27 PM EDT
Weird and dated, just like me. I'd live there.

The interior looks like a church.

I don't think it looked bad compared to many, but it's also WV and they're asking for nearly a million. It doesnt scream million dollar house to me.

The land being that cheap is a hint to the location as well.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:14:53 PM EDT
I don't give a fuck how it's laid out or how much land there is, I'm not spending a million dollars on a house with baseboard heat and a 30 year old kitchen what the fuck
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:14:57 PM EDT
It has some great potential if a professional could update it.

#metoo

With that much acreage ABNB the main house and live in one of the other hovels on site.  Make bank.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:15:10 PM EDT
I like it.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:15:48 PM EDT
It’s kind of neat. Just dated as hell inside with some odd touches (like the stained glass windows and stair podium thing). I’d have to basically gut it and start over.

Look at it on a map.. even the driveway is an odd curvy thing. Make it a couple lanes wide and it would be like having a fun backroad as your driveway haha
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:15:49 PM EDT
Yeah its not too bad. Change a couple of weird things out, and some updating.

I would get rid of the electric baseboards thou, that electric bill has to be insane.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:15:52 PM EDT
I was expecting worse before I clicked the link. A good update would make that place decent.

Yeah, that would be a gut job for me despite the terrible layout and flow.

Looks like a summer camp
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:16:46 PM EDT
For the land alone I’d buy it. The house is just a kicker.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:17:13 PM EDT
I’ve seen way wackier houses than that. Update the kitchen and it would be good to go.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:17:22 PM EDT
Water leaks?
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:17:24 PM EDT
If I were looking in the area, I'd make an offer.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:17:39 PM EDT
for a 242 Acres plot, it's only ~$4100 per acre.  Assume none of it tillable but looks like lots of woods.  That's a good price for hunting land in southern Iowa...

Same.

It is dated, looks like grandma and grandpa built their dream house, lived out their days in it and have passed on.

Do the semi truck and jetskis come with the place?

242 acres, good sized garage, 2 houses. Sounds good to me. Would do a light remodel/update to the main house, build a huge shop building, fix up the farm house for guests and call it good.

Trying to make sense of the interior layout gave me a headache

Get it cheap and while its empty, gut the inside and start over.

This is a goofy home:
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:19:06 PM EDT
Yea I walked through a couple like that, more money than sense applies.  Obviously owner designed.  

One place wasn’t too bad but I did a WTF when the master bed room had a dais bed platform, two or three steps all the way around up to an oak platform to the bed.  All I could think of is creepy bedroom altar porno shoot.   I have a coworker whose alley that would be right up.

With that much land that place would be $10 million out west.

You can always do some remodeling.

This is what a similar amount of money gets you in Utah.  It's on .2 of an acre.

That's a PSA for not building a $1m home on bumbfuck WV. It would sell in a heartbeat in a better location for much more.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:19:53 PM EDT
It's a bit dated and would need a few things changed but that acreage looks amazing and the house is definitely nicer than mine

Nice piece of land, but the home is just full of WTF.

The podium thing in the staircase would be a nice place to put a major award.

Sugar Grove. Isn't that near the NRAO site with all of the antennas?
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:22:14 PM EDT
I'd be more concerned about the West Virginia aspect than any of the design choices.

Looks like a cult house

If they did new bathrooms, kitchen cabinets, counters etc. I would buy at that price. But at a mill it needs to be completed. Even with that much land.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:26:21 PM EDT
thats not as bad as I imagined,  definitely needs updates

It screams east Asian as far as layout goes

It's all set up for a zen/rock garden but looks like none got put in.

It's so positively high class 80s retreat that I can't help but love it.

Pretty easy to find period correct furniture too.

Good lord I sound like my mother.

Probably just for that realtor.   I imagine they changed realtors every 1.5 years.

I got bit by that once.   My current house had been on the market almost two years but with two different agencies.  Had I known the total time I would have been more aggressive in reducing the price.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:28:34 PM EDT
About $4k per acre without even accounting for any improvements to the property.

Beats the hell out of a million dollar shithole in CA.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:28:46 PM EDT
There's a guy local to me.  An author apparently who might have had one or two good hits, who built a home that can only be described as Noah's Ark inspired.  Even worse is that it was in a subdivision that was otherwise packed with very typical New Colonial/McMansion style homes.  I recall he spent north of a million bucks to build it.  It was on the market for years and finally sold to a flipper for $315k who was able to work some magic and unscrew it enough to sell it for mid $500s.

Or a palantir, because it looks like Saruman’s weekend-getaway place.
Link Posted: 10/13/2021 12:31:24 PM EDT
Damn. I actually kinda dig it. There are two houses on 242 acres with a spring fed pond. Pretty good price for all that.

I'm currently looking in TN for a home. If it was there I'd definitely be looking at it. I know quite a few people are looking to move, but most are looking in states with no state income tax. WV also has annual personal property tax (low or not it still pisses me off) on vehicles based on the BB value of the vehicle. As well as an annual "safety" inspection, which is also a waste of time and money.

I honestly think you could spend $400k-$500k to sort that house out.
