Take A Tour Of An Ohio Home That's Straight Out Of Jurassic Park

We're sure that everyone feels a bit of child-like wonder whenever they walk past a dinosaur exhibit at the museum. Just the thought that so many colossal creatures once roamed the Earth is almost too hard to imagine. That's why, when the blockbuster film "Jurassic Park" hit theaters in 1993, moviegoers were absolutely floored watching their childhood dino pals run amok on the big screen. According to CNBC, since its first showing, the "Jurassic Park" franchise has grown to include five films and generated almost $5 billion at the box office alone. Profits are set to reach T-Rex level success with the 2022 release of the sixth film in the series, "Jurassic World Dominion," the new film features Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, as well as stars of the original "Jurassic Park" film, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum.

With so much adoration for the franchise, some die-hard dino lovers can be excused for showing off their passion for the prehistoric. However, if your love for the films influences your home decor, it might take on a whole new kind of fandom. In Cleveland, Ohio, there is a home for sale that has a curb appeal like no other. With a less than subtle dinosaur theme, it makes it a real niche living space for those who might share the same interest. Let's take a look at this blast from the past house that may have potential home buyers scratching their heads.

A look outside of this dinosaur themed home

They say that first impressions are incredibly important, especially when you are trying to sell your home. A well-manicured lawn and newly painted front porch can be just the thing to lure big-time bids for your house. However, in Cleveland, Ohio, there is a home that may stop you in your tracks, and we're not quite sure what to think. Listed on Zillow for $162,000 is a 1,624 square foot Colonial-style home that is roaring with personal touches. Set amongst the paved drive and chain-linked fence are not one but three large prehistoric sculptures that welcome you into the over 6,000 square feet of property.

These massive wonders seem to be built from a mixture of wood and possibly plaster. The first figure could be an artist's representation of a distant cousin of the long-since-extinct Spinosaurus, according to pictures from Britannica. This dinosaur is accompanied by a Wooly Mammoth-type sculpture and a seeming out-of-place giraffe-like creature. Every one of the pieces has obviously been hand-made with care and love, with particular detail made in most areas of the bodies. Although the creatures are quite a bit distracting, behind them, you can notice a very well-maintained front porch that is gleaming with crisp white paint and brightly illuminated by updated outdoor lighting. Also, the creamy clean vinyl siding looks to be in great condition and is accented wonderfully by darkly stained decorative shutters.

Inside this elaborately decorated home

After making your way past the dinosaurs, up the paved pathway, and through the hand-made rustic wooden archway to the black metal front door, you might need to collect yourself before you enter. One step into the living room, and you are met with an array of personal decorative touches that could rival most museum displays. From the photos listed on Zillow, you can notice that carefully placed plants are kept in artistically created pots and are surrounded by stunning pieces of vintage furniture. End tables look to be carved into thick, luxurious wood by artisans, and the matching couch and loveseat combo fit the earthy-colored theme of the room. The coffee table has broad wooden carved legs with a pane of glass that covers a delicately detailed etching of twisting wood design.

All of these incredibly elaborate pieces of art that adorn the walls and furniture that look as though they have been collected and taken care of throughout the decades are overlooked by the highlight of the room. Standing front and center is yet another statuesque figure that could have easily come from a fantastical time long, long ago. Harnessing the major light source separating the living room from the dining room is a creature that could be a half dinosaur, half giraffe. The daunting figure stands floor to ceiling, and in its mouth, it holds a bright lantern, while tiny outstretched hands face palm up as if offering its service.

A look around the rest of the home

The rest of the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home features stunningly stained wood flooring throughout and even more impressive furniture pieces. The dining room table is extremely ornate and features a wooden carved centerpiece that is kept safe under glass. Rich wooden cabinets line the somewhat dated kitchen, which has glistening granite countertops framed by a marble backsplash, according to the listing on Zillow. The home comes complete with oak trims and a cozy little breakfast nook as well. Bedrooms on the second floor, unfortunately, don't have the same charm as the rest of the home but do feature an embellished bed frame with exquisite matching bedside tables.

On the third floor is a bare-bones attic that could be refinished to make a home office or an adequate place to plan and create future dinosaur sculptures if need be. This home is an absolute treat when it comes to quirkiness. Complete with unique personal touches on seemingly every inch of space, it certainly fits the profile of a home that was deeply loved. The previous owners were certainly not shy in displaying the decor and dinosaur heavy possessions that they were very fond of. So if you share the same jaw-dropping Jurassic passion, maybe you can talk them into including the sculptures in the sale.
