Tasteful Friends: Lake Tahoe Duplex Comes With Your Own Tasteful Friends Included

Things take a turn about 1/2 way through the photos.

I'm getting some "Lars and the Real Girl" vibes

If this has already been posted, sorry. I searched “tasteful friends” and “Lake Tahoe.”

I'm actually more freaked out by the brass headboards over the fireplace than the manniquens.

And the kitchen-living room with a glamorous view of the carport!

But what a view of your car!

Who needs to see the water?

Have you seen my 1987 Cadillac Fleetwood?

Sold "As Is"

WTF!! There is a cherub playing a violin IN THE SHOWER. It is staring right at where the showerer would be standing - perverted cherub.

The mannequins, aside from being creepy, also show how low the ceilings are.

Why didn’t they bother to clean up the clutter?

by Anonymousreply 7Last Sunday at 5:35 PM

I’m positive an extra “0” was mistakenly added to the asking price. 65,000 sounds more like it.

by Anonymousreply 8Last Sunday at 5:39 PM

What the hell is going on there? When I first saw all the used cars in the driveway, the decor of the basement apartment, and the view of the carport, I though that a bunch of frat boys rented the place. Then, upstairs...with those mannequins and Staten Island bocce galoop furnishings? I thought I stepped into a John Waters' horror film. Loved the stolen Manger Mary amidst the life-size child dolls and mannequins.

by Anonymousreply 9Last Sunday at 5:44 PM

I can see why the realtor left the creepy mannequins in, they actually detract from the fact that the duplex itself is cheap and horrible!

I mean, I love South Lake Tahoe, it's a lovely little town and a great place to walk, with good restaurants and casinos if you like casinos, and all the hiking and skiing and boating a person could want right there. That's why a cheap and horrible place with low ceilings, constructed of paper drywall and the cheapest particleboard has such a high asking price.

Zoom in on picture 18.

by Anonymousreply 11Last Sunday at 5:45 PM

The pic showing the oversized headboard paired with the undersized mattress is disturbing. The mannequins creep me out.

The mercury glass pumpkins in front of the Virgin Mary, R11? Or the creepy male mannequin in the back room, standing over the provocatively posed, naked female mannequin on the floor?

by Anonymousreply 13Last Sunday at 5:56 PM

Well R13, all of it really. It’s a buffet for the eyes, but I’m particularly amused by the come hither hussy crawling on the floor.

by Anonymousreply 14Last Sunday at 5:59 PM

Actually, the last picture has a different shot that includes naked floor mannequin - not topless, but there is another naked mannequin, and a female mannequin sitting over the mannequin on the floor. Also a baby, some children, a dog wearing pearls, another Virgin Mary,and a bunch of others. No additional mercury glass pumpkins, though. I guess they are all out on display - how many can you spot in these pictures/

The pile of pillows, and the mirror on the floor make me think that is an overflow room - or a staging area.

So creepy

Had the Donner Party happened upon this mannequin-inhabited duplex in the middle of winter, they still would have tried their luck elsewhere.

Mannequin 3 on lock.

Very Stepford wife. But that kitchen floor isn't clean enough.

R11, it is difficult to discern what part of Picture 18 you find disturbing. It would give Hitchcock nightmares.

WHAT A DUMP! It's certainly no Butternut Lodge!

I don’t even want to fathom the mind that chose this living nightmare. Shudder.

by Anonymousreply 21Last Sunday at 7:04 PM

The real estate agent has my sympathy to a point. I don't understand why they didn't at least move the clutter around while taking the photos, especially all the laundry and things scattered about. Showing the view to the carport was also pretty stupid. It looks like the drreaded combination of a seller who wants top dollar but refuses to listen to their agent's instructions, as in "GET a storage unit and clear the shit outta here!"

What's with all the mannequins and hoarding?

by Anonymousreply 23Last Sunday at 8:44 PM


by Anonymousreply 24Last Sunday at 8:51 PM

R22, like I said, I think the realtor is smart to keep the wierdness in. The place is cramped, cheap, and shabby, but the listing has gone viral and will be seen much more widely than it would have if the place had been cleaned up. Attention means that there's a hope of getting something near the asking price, for something that's really kind of horrible.

The location is good, though, it's in a nice area, a few blocks away from shopping, the casinos, the Heavenly gondola, and the lake itself. With this much interest, there will be offers.

by Anonymousreply 28Last Sunday at 10:31 PM

R7---Because it is sold AS IS, duh.

It's like Rhoda lived there and took home all Hempel's misfit mannequins so she could practice posing them in outfits before doing her displays in the store windows.

Or else the lonely guy who made the Elaine Benes mannequin lived there.

by Anonymousreply 29Last Sunday at 10:40 PM

The mannequin without pants on and laying on the floor is the worst, in part because it's almost hidden.

I don't know why it was included, unless the agent was hoping this would go viral.

R19, I think he's seeing the half nude mannequin on the floor through the doorway.

The creepy mannequins and angel statues I can forgive... But that popcorn ceiling? Mon dieu! Burn it to the ground!!

by Anonymousreply 33Last Monday at 1:33 AM

Kudos OP

This may be the most bizarre TF ever

My favorite shot is the bathroom with the quarter roll of toilet paper sitting there on the sink along with various bath items, although the laundry on the unmade beds is a close second.

It's like the realtor woke them up one morning, chased them out of the house and took photos without bothering to straighten up.

by Anonymousreply 34Last Monday at 1:40 AM

I’m hearing “Goodbye Horses” when I view this listing, and I know somewhere in the house Jame Gumb is dancing around naked in front of a mirror.

by Anonymousreply 35Last Monday at 1:57 AM

This looks like the crazy owner lives upstairs and there’s an equally mentally ill (but less fastidious) person renting the downstairs space.

I saw the child’s sippy cup on the upstairs dining table and wondered about that. Then I saw the little rubbery seat thingy and wondered some more. Then I saw the baby mannequin in the walker in the bedroom and theorize that the upstairs dweller has a “baby”, as well as a host of glamorous adult companions.

What a bizarre experience. Well done, OP.

Maybe the husband lived down there.

by Anonymousreply 40Last Monday at 2:46 AM

I don't think I'd want to touch that laundry even in a hazmat suit, I don't blame the realtor from leaving it there. It's like the setting for a serial killer movie.

by Anonymousreply 41Last Monday at 2:55 AM

Agree this is the weirdest TF seen here, and that's saying something. But isn't this listing for show? It was deliberately staged this way, like some kind of kitschy-artsy tableau, for attention. Either for the pending sale, or the owner/decorator's hopes for advancement in horror vacui....right?

Otherwise Tahoe has a real weirdo living in its midst. Someone should look below the floorboards.

Pedestrian on bottom, fabulous on top.

My husband is convinced this is a joke, that it is just too bizarre to be real and there's likely a backstory to it.

by Anonymousreply 44Last Monday at 6:17 AM

This is delightfully weird and creepy. Good work, OP!

That downstairs is some straight-up Section 8 housing. There’s a damn automobile seat sitting just outside the kitchen, in a corner next to a pile of junk. Wtf, are they using it as furniture? Why would anyone do that? And the upstairs has water stains and a hole in the popcorn ceiling. Unbelievable.
