According to Real Estalker, Willem Dafoe has put his 1,949-square-foot, 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home in Upstate New York on the market for $850,000. And the house is a one-of-a-kind stunner —as unique as the actor, who's known for his unusual roles.
The listing reads:
The rubber house is a local landmark and one of the few examples of true modern architecture in the area. It was commissioned and built for the late choreographer Eugene Loring. Inspired by the enormous boulders and rock outcroppings on the meadowed acreage, soaring walls of glass bring light and nature indoors. The third-floor tower is the quintessential spot for writing or gazing and the space that was the dance studio is a great room that's ideal for entertaining.
The 1980s house looks to me like a steel battleship, but turns out it's made from neoprene (i.e. synthetic rubber)! I love the interior and the subdued wall tones; you'd never guess from the exterior that it gets so much natural light. If this house were in LA, it would probably go for at least $2 million — that's the advantage of living in the country, in addition to enjoying the beautiful wooded land and deer frolicking to and fro. That is, until a deer decides to run straight into your car (which has happened many a time to dear old me). Would you like to live in this rubber battleship?
