Homeowner struggling to sell huge £186k two-bedroom home – can YOU see why?

A UNIQUE two-bed house is being sold for £186,000 but hasn't had any offers yet.

The octagon-shaped house in Lincoln, just north of Springfield in the US, definitely stands out thanks to its unique colour scheme.

Owner Seth Goodman decided he liked the dark colours and redecorated the entire house black after buying it last year.

But now he's struggling to sell the home, even though it's a steal at just £186,000 ($250,000) and comes with two bedrooms, plus two baths.

Speaking to the Lincoln Courier, Seth said: "I was interested and thought at first I was just going to flip the house, but after my home sold, I needed a place to live.

"I wanted to make it more modern and after seeing the black roof, I thought why not go with black siding. From there we used black gutters, painted the deck black and changed the landscaping rocks to black."

Seth said that he initially planned to just give the house a black shingle roof, but after liking the result, he decided to paint the whole exterior.

To ensure the entire house fit with the colour scheme, he even painted the garage black.

Pictures have been shared online in an effort to attract buyers, but so far it hasn't impressed online users.

One said: "Designed by Voldemort."

Another said: "Fascinating to see the dichotomy between black walls and live laugh love style signs."

The oddly-shaped home, which doesn't have a single square room, was listed online on 110 Edgar St as a “mysterious black octagon” and a “midwestern showstopper.”

It has two bedrooms, an open plan living room, and the second floor has an attic room complete with a cathedral ceiling, three skylights, and a tiled bathroom.

Spanning over 1,500 square feet, the house also has three outdoor decking areas and a triple garage.

The home went viral after it was shared on Instagram by @zillowgonewild.
