Only $159,000! You can't even buy a crack house in Southern California for $159k.
Sandwiched between Palmer Park and Livernois, things are quiet on the winding streets of Sherwood Forest. Sherwood's close-knit design might lend itself to nosy neighbors, but could they have possibly known what's hiding behind this unassuming, mid-century facade?
The tiki bar of your dreams >>
Most Sherwood Forest homes were built in the 1920s or 30s, but this one crashed the party in 1950. Featuring a generous use of pink paint, mirrors, and holographic wallpaper, this 4-bedroom asks $159K and needs a bit of updating. But that doesn't explain the basement. Basement bars aren't uncommon for homes of this era, but but most don't feature a large painting of a topless dancer greeting guests at the bottom of the stairs. Things only get better from there. Every bit of wall not covered in faux bamboo features a painting meant to put you in tropical mood, meaning guests endure a gauntlet of monkeys, palm trees, and nipples. You'll certainly be in a drinking mood by the time you reach the bar, which features the greatest painting of all. Wearing a necklace of bottle caps, the queen of the bar appears ready to eat a hotdog.
