That's funny that the OP on Twitter called it the "Smurf Roof". We drive past there on occasion and we've always called it "The Smurf House". We have family friends family friends who live just across the lake to the southwest of that house and you can see that bright blue roof from about a mile away, especially in the fall and winter. It sticks out like a sore thumb.
You had me at thruple!
Yeah, I'm sort of disappointed with the interior of that one; it's a lot more understated than I would have imagined. Thankfully (IMO), even though it's obviously been updated, the owners seemed to keep the interior pretty much inline with what you'd expect from some big old house from the 1920s. I wanted to click in and see some cocaine-fueled 1980s decadence like you can often find there in West Bloomfield. This house is just too old for that I guess. At the very least, I was really expecting to see a hoarders situation or maybe some kitsch-overload.OK, but why maintain the pretense anymore?
I have no idea what's up with that roof, but I expected more Dr. SEUSS influence on the inside.
