    Default A pink house in California


    Jim Wilson/The New York Times
    A four-bedroom house on a winding, hillside street in Berkeley, Calif., is on the market for $930,000.



    Jim Wilson/The New York Times
    The three-level house was built in 1994 and won a design award from a local chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 1995. The living room, with a wood stove and built-in bookshelves, is on the top level, along with a kitchen, dining room and master bedroom

    It's never a good idea to serve the hard liquor at the annual meetings before the winners are chosen.

    I really like the red cabinets in the kitchen. The rest of it not so much.
    Silence may be golden but, duct tape is cheaper.

    All it's missing is a Kajagoogoo poster somewhere.

    Wow it's impressively ugly. The recurring blue tile everywhere is tacky, as well as the mirrors. It's so dated and ugly, like it's permanently stuck in 1985.

    The bedroom reminds me of the staterooms on boats. I like the deck but the planters taking up all the space clutters it up and sort of defeats the purpose of enjoying the space yourself.

    Were the actually trying to make the fugliest house possible? Maybe that's what the award was for. I mean, you almost HAVE to be intentional to achieve this level of tacky.

    i've seen worse in berkeley.

    a lot of the small towns/cities around here have codes restricting which colors can be used for the outside of your house. berkeley doesn't so there are houses that look like this. some even worse.
