Not every house is an aesthetic masterpiece, but few properties have generated the level of online hilarity as a luxury residence in Avon, Conn., that has been compared to the grisly horror film settings rather than suburban comfort

Not every house is an aesthetic masterpiece, but few properties have generated the level of online hilarity as a luxury residence in Avon, Conn., that has been compared to the grisly horror film settings rather than suburban comfort.

According to an Atlas Obscura report, the 40 photographs on a Zillow listing for 24 Brentwood Drive in Avon, Conn. has created a sensation among the online smart-aleck set, with a flurry of responses on Twitter that include such observations as “Glad we found the set for American Horror Story Season 8,” “We all hope to die at home and this house promises that,” and “Is this a house or a portal to the underworld?” Indeed, the décor is so creepily disturbing that the only thing lacking is a wall rack for hanging chainsaws.

Actually, the outlandish design is the work of artist Nikolay Synkov, who used the house as both his residence and the headquarters of his Fermata Arts Foundation, which he describes as working “to aid in the preservation of peace [through] the synthesis of art, architecture, philosophy and poetry.” He considers the property as a work of art, dubbing it “Brentwood, no. 24.”

Nonetheless, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and would-be buyers are not beholding anything that they want to possess. Synkov first listed the property in March 2013 for $1.14 million, but it is now down to $339,900.
