I haven't seen anything too outstanding in my area. We do have decks built around trees. I think that's pretty neat.

I'd probably back into that tree.

I think the craziest thing I've had is a tree through the deck.  I'm not  fan.

     A 1960's house that I sold last year... everything in it, from the appliances to the furniture to the books on the shelves and the LP records was vintange, in mint condition.  There were coppertone appliances, "Ginsu knives" on the counter, and more.  It was like a time warp.  I did a blog post about it.

How nice that they kept the tree. In our water communities I am always amazed at how cleverly people utilize the smallest spaces. I once saw a shower stall so narrow, that I'm sure a pregnant woman, for example could not fit in.

I think a dog wash area in the mudroom was pretty cool. That was the most unique feature. It even had a heated drying area.

I once had a listing where the "components" of the only bathroom were found in different parts of the small house.  The toilet over there -- the tub/shower in another part of the home and the sink in a different place. Early 1900s Bungalow.  It was tenant occupied with only one scheduled showing.   Both parties who saw it made offers and one of them was the successful buyer.

One 2/2 listed at $500K with a spa in the living room. (DOM 411 days)

Best feature was a hole in the roof, present for nearly 10 years of occupied house. That actually was a fun one to work with.

Disappointing feature was the 'Family Discount' offer from the local bail bondsman attached to the refrigerator.
