There is a very different house for sale in otherwise very "normal" Lincoln, Illinois.  A mysterious black octagon-shaped home that has been completely redone is on the market.

If you are looking for pops of color, and rainbows of joy, this one isn't for you.  The interior, exterior, furniture, all of it is black and white.  It's like if you took your normal house and put it through the "mono" filter on your phone.  In the below photos, I can only find two spots that are not black and white in the entire house.  And one is for safety reasons.

That is not the only thing unique about this house.  It has no square rooms.  I feel like with no squares in all black and white somebody could go quite mad here. In a good way.

So what is the asking price for this black beauty?  $250,000.  Seems reasonable for a totally renovated house in most cities.  However, according to Zillow the estimated sales range is $147,000.  Guess you will be the fancy, black and white, house in the not-so-fancy neighborhood.
