Sullivan’s Gulch: An American Horror (Love)Story

By Living Room Realty, October 22, 2018

I’m not sure if it was the black and white contortionist artwork in the entryway, or the braided locks of human hair displayed in a glass cabinet, but this hypnotic craftsman in Sullivan’s Gulch was love at first sight.

The decor flirted with creepy, yet I immediately developed an American Horror Story crush on it. It’s not often that I come across a home with black high-gloss walls and textured patina ceilings. It’s even more unusual to be seduced by one.

In contrast with the moody interior, the lush back yard is an urban oasis. Snaking its way up the siding, an ancient wisteria with a thick, ropey trunk slithers toward the second floor. And although located close to busy streets, traffic noise is soothingly ambient.

My creative clients silently explored the 108 year old house and eventually one of them said, “I think I love this house.” We were still there two hours later. It was like one of those amazing first dates that lasts for hours, but with a house.

I hand over the keys to excited buyers tomorrow. Hopefully, this budding romance will last for years to come.
