It’s real, y’all. It’s really in the middle of the North Island. And it’s really for sale.

“On a typical weekend, people arrive – we encourage them to bring cowboy clothing, but we also have a costume department – and then we give them a town tour.” Somewhere between Taumaranui and Ohakune, things get a little squirrelly...

Of course, technically there’s no law that says ceilings *have* to be painted white... but anyhow this poker-faced little house cares not a jot for your social norms.

Come for the precision topiary and the hand-painted wallpaper, stay for the double-decker library.

It's a garage. It's a house. It's a garage-house! Full points for commitment to the vision, including industrial design elements and industrial-sized subway tile in the kitchen.

Looking at this house () has made me realise that when I look at a house, I unconsciously try to make a coherent story about it, and its people. Because here? I could not.

This relatively unremarkable 70s mock-Tudor really went all-out in the bathroom.

Brick-and-tile in the streets, utterly bonkers opulence in the sheets. (Also in the kitchen, the lounge, and bathroom.)

Ramparts meets camp arts! Strictly for lovers of both castle chic AND haute 70s stylings. Check it out: moat, drawbridge, turrets, secret room, "large deck perfect for launching dragons." Plus: spa pool, fur-lined waterbeds, and an avocado throne room.

A belated retweet, apologies Beck. We were distracted thinking about hot chips. For some reason.

"To say this home is in original condition is an understatement." Original is the word. Jimmy was clearly a man of distinctive tastes.

The wallpaper in the bathroom. And, y'know, everything else.

A former pie shop in Fairlie, built in 1878! That's, um, fairly old. (Sorry.)
