Zillow is always filled with interesting homes for sale, and a certain “goth home” in Illinois is getting a lot of attention.

The home features an all-black color scheme and odd shape, making it look like a true gothic mansion. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Lincoln is listed for $250,000 and took off on socials the Zillow Gone Wild Twitter account shared the listing.

While it’s cool to see a house with such a unique design, there’s no denying that this home looks, well, a bit creepy. Hence, it’s been dubbed the “goth home” on social media. But, from the photos, it also appears to be a beauty of a home, with hardwood floors and lush, black walls on inside to make the style complete.

Here’s the official Zillow listing:

Property also features three separate decks, a 3+ car attached garage, and TONS of recent updates ($160,000+) — siding, gutters, roof, landscaping, total bath rebuilds, countertops, fixtures, plumbing, electrical, flooring, HVAC, water softener, custom black window treatments, trim, doors, pergola/firepit — WOW!
