Distinctive, iconic, unmatched. Those are the words used to market a ranch with a twist that’s on the market in the north-west of the United States.
The sprawling property with mountain views — asking price $US29 million ($37.6 million) — is certainly impressive, but it’s what’s inside the home that makes it unique.
Bucks, bears, buffalo and a bison are among the dozens of stuffed animals photographed inside the home, the living room of which resembles a low-budget natural history museum or for some, your worst nightmare.
The home comes with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, fake trees, a fake salmon-filled pond frequented by stuffed bears and a rocky fireplace traversed by mountain goats and what appears to be a lioness.
The jaw-dropping listing describes the ranch — which spans more than 1.7 square kilometres — as a “one of a kind retreat” but makes no mention of the property’s wilder side, leaving it to the pictures to do the talking.
In the living room buyers will find a bear biting into a salmon, while a cougar overlooks the room from a branch up high, and other woodland creatures stand frozen in time.
Elsewhere throughout the home, you’ll find a skunk on the kitchen counter top, a turkey on the bar, a cowhide-walled cinema room and so many, many antlers.
The main bedroom alone has at least 18 animals, including a zebra and a giraffe, all casting their gaze towards the bed.
The home, known as the Y Bell Ranch, unsurprisingly caught the eye of popular Instagram account Zillow Gone Wild.
The property was listed for sale for $US33 million in mid-2019, with the price dropped to $US29 million in mid-2020, according to Zillow.
Whether it’s the price, the decor, or both, that’s making it hard to secure a sale, we’re not sure, but we suspects the aesthetic may be suited to a select pool of buyers.
Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
