Detroit — A $550,000 home that just hit the market in the Grixdale Farms neighborhood is so unique that realtors will only grant tours on sunny days.

Boasting a unique, decorative flair, the house has been dubbed the “Lion Gate Estate.”

Special features include an all white-and-silver living room, fenced-in yard with fountains and statuary, and a custom two-car garage with hand-painted murals.

But wait, there’s more.

The buyer will get all of the home’s contents, which includes rare items one may not find elsewhere. Some of those valuables include a Kohler Campbell baby grand player piano, a custom-built 1974 Lincoln Mark IV Coupe and Frigidaire kitchen appliances from 1950.

The three-bedroom house also comes with a heated swimming pool, outdoor shower and finished basement with a billiard room and entertainment area.

A posting on describes it as a “once in a lifetime offering.”
