The unique Sacramento property that made headlines around the world earlier this month has also fascinated the owner’s niece since she was a small child.

Steps from Curtis Park, the interior of the four-bedroom, two-bathroom residence at 2510 Coleman Way was inspired by famed Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, according to Janet Carlson of Lyon Real Estate, the agent holding the listing. and a friend of the late owner, Lou Kraft.

“He was a fancy man,” Kraft’s niece Ayla Kraft of Roseville said in a new video from The Sacramento Bee. “And throughout my life growing up with him as a kid was amazing. To be able to walk into that house – it was his own fantasy world. And he loved us so much. And we were his children to him. , because he didn’t have any kids of his own. So he always made us come to his house and showed us his new work he was working on. And always let us have a fun time.

Filled with art and paintings reflecting the four elements, zodiac signs and hidden hiding places, the 2,320 square foot home features a living room with bay window, leaded glass, fireplace, built-in seating, under -full floor with exterior access, a two-storey garage and a swimming pool. Newly renovated hardwood floors run through much of the home. The colorful and whimsical artwork inside has been created by Kraft, a local psychiatrist, for over 25 years. He used caulking compound, styrofoam, wood, and paint.

“He was still working on a new section of the house,” Kraft said. “And he’d be so excited to show us what he had done and we’d just be mesmerized. We didn’t know the house wasn’t normal growing up. It wasn’t until we had a Christmas party at his house. him, and some of our family, friends, and neighbors came in. And they were just blown away walking into the house. And I was confused because I was like, ‘What do you mean, this is so crazy. This is my uncle’s house.

Kraft explains more about the house, including the calculation equations embedded in the walls, in the video above.

“This property is truly an outlier and it will be difficult to assess because there really isn’t a perfect comparison,” Sacramento appraiser and market analyst Ryan Lundquist told The Bee. “Truly, for something like this, we can get some ideas of what it might be worth, and then we’ll see how the market actually responds.”

The original asking price was $825,000 and is now $725,000.
