Nothing to see here, right? Wrong.
Okay, so you’re hanging out in Sweden. Or more specifically, the region of Kalmar. Be honest, if you passed this place on the street you probably wouldn’t give it a second glance – unless you were also house-hunting in which case, you’d be in luck! For a paltry 2,375,000 Krona (don’t panic, that’s only £204,008, or $320,000 to us Westerners), it can be yours. Although probably best suited to those interested in a different type of hunting…
As you may have guessed from the snappy headline, it turns out the seller of this particular home has something of a keen interest in a certain sci-fi franchise (or two). This might become a little more noticeable once you set foot inside (click to enormify images).
Yes, that’s a full-scale Predator (complete with foliage backdrop!) and some mounted hunting masks right there in the dude’s hallway and this is probably the moment where you have to decide if this guy is clinically insane or just INSANELY AWESOME (at BBP we love Predator, so we’re going with the latter). There’s nothing wrong with exercising your passion, if you can afford to and as long as you use a little restraint, right? So when you see this badass door, you naturally have to wonder what’s on the other side.
Well, there’s this obscenely detailed lounge – a recreation of the inside of a Predator ship, complete with more mounted masks, Alien Queen heads, eggs and Facehuggers…
…and then there’s the coup de grâce: a 30-metre-square cinema room complete with leather recliners, twin disco balls… and an electronic drumkit(!):
I can’t help but applaud the effort, even if I do have to question whether the owner has taken a laser-cannon to the head at some point in his life. Being a grown man whose most recent purchases include the Temple of Doom action figures suddenly doesn’t feel quite so bad! I’ve included the full advert for the sale below, thanks to Google translate. Curiously, it makes no mention of the very specific particulars of the décor…
