Merry Christmas: ""The World’s Worst McMansion – It’s So Bad, It’s Good""

No, it is not good. The interior pics are borderline hoarder with a touch of crazy cat lady.

"How did you end up with so many cats"

"Well, it started with just a few but then it sort of got away from me."

The always say "it sort of got away from me."

That's how you know they are trying to keep a grip on reality but it's tenuous. Very tenuous.

From the Steeple Times:

New Jersey ‘McMansion’ complete with Flintstone-esque pebbled bathrooms and gaudy grottos goes on sale for £1.65 million; it’s so bad, it’s good

A onetime contributor of ours is best known for saying: “It’s good” of almost any situation and in 1 Rivers Edge Drive in Colts Neck, Monmouth County we’ve discovered what is quite possibly the best ever example of: “It’s so bad, it’s good” in architectural terms.

Styled from outside in the form of an atypical ‘McMansion’ or ‘Hummer House,’ the 5,420 square foot ‘palace’ of a property on offer for sale currently stands in a community described by realtor Jason Mitchell as “the gem of New Jersey.”.... 

....MUCH MORE, oh, we're just getting started.

The entrance hall to the ‘house’ resembles a Christmas grotto, but not one you’d want to take any child near given it is more Halloween-horror-esque.

Who’d have thought it? Pink, brown, gold and grey aren’t a great colour comibination.

And so much more.

Makes you feel pretty good about your own design sensibilities, eh what? 

And as for hoarding, those suffering from the disorder usually have some serious deprivation somewhere in their past, usually childhood or young adulthood. 

Some are able to overcome the stigma if not the impulse, by becoming commodity traders and referring to storage and market corners.
