Weekly Blend: November 3, 2017

The Weekly Blend is your “weekly” source covering real estate news that you just may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to share please feel free to share it in our comments section or tweet about it using the hashtag #WeeklyBlend. So brew yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy these stories. Maybe even share them with friends or colleagues. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

There’s nothing worse than stepping on a stray LEGO® piece. Well, get used to it in this house made entirely of those toy building blocks – 25 million bricks worth!

Find out the best spot in your home for that ficus with this new augmented reality app, which rates your room on its “plant life balance index.”

If you have a client looking for a house that stands out, this original Frank Lloyd Wright home for sale in Minnesota certainly fits the bill. Forget a red carpet treatment, I want those red stairs.

This father cast a spell on his home and turned it into a scene straight out of Harry Potter for Halloween. His recreation of Diagon Alley is – as Harry would say – brilliant!

You better believe no expense was spared for Robert Downey Jr.’s Hamptons hideaway (where he no doubt is better known as Tony Stark and is building repulsor beams in his garage).

No one who lives in this home should be a stone-thrower. That’s because it’s known as the “glass house” within Berkeley Hills, California.

Take a trip to this psychedelic and bizarre house for sale in England. Oh, and don’t bother trying to negotiate the price in British pounds as it’s only being sold through Bitcoin currency.

Tom Petty fans won’t back down from wanting to buy this property. The late rock star’s California lake house hit the market for $5.9 million U.S.

If you have a severe case of nucleomituphobia (fear of nuclear weapons), move to Kansas City as it apparently gives you the best odds of surviving a nuclear apocalypse.

Need space to entertain? Will a 200-person dining room be big enough for you? This palace will only put you back $167 million CDN.

Do you like quizzes? Is the Pope Catholic? Of course! So, take this quiz by designing your dream home to see which TV family you belong in. (I want to hear from my fellow Modern Family dwellers.)
