Wealthy Investors or Quirky Music Lovers Wanted: A house built in the shape of a guitar is currently for sale in Georgia, United States.

For the sum of $ 789,000, you could get your hands on a house that, from the sky, looks almost completely like an acoustic guitar. Located in Fayetteville, a commune of nearly 20,000 residents, it has an area of 3122 square feet. There are five bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Sales broker Jane Piven added in an interview that the house was located in a residential area, “outside the confines of the city center.” The official announcement, on the Zillow website, states that it is possible to sublet the property to three different groups of people, if ever the buyer chooses to convert the residence to an Airbnb-type accommodation.
The question arises: despite its shape, is this house guitar functional? “There have been major renovations in the past three to five years,” notes Ms.myself Piven. However, there is still some work to be done: one of the showers in particular is in need of renovation. “There is a kitchen that has not yet been installed, but otherwise the house is turnkey,” he continues.
In the basement there is an old fireplace, which can be left as it is to keep a warmer touch, or renovated for a more modern look.
The guitar house has been on sale on the US real estate market since early July. Although there is about one visit per week, potential buyers seem reluctant.
The guitar is a very strange and difficult concept to master. People are skeptical of living there.
Jane Piven, mediator
Built in 1986, the building was designed by local country music singer Elvis L. Carden. He also lived there for a while before selling it to other people.
M.myself Piven assures that the roof, which seems fragile, according to the comments posted on social networks, is very solid. “The material is a normal composite,” she explains. It is the color that gives you the impression of fragility. It has recently been replaced. ”
Considering that the home may be difficult to sell to individuals, the owner now plans to turn to “investors in New York or Los Angeles, for example, who might have a good view”.
“It is 10-15 minutes from an international airport,” adds Jane Piven. If people come to Georgia and want to see something great, they might sleep in this house for a few nights. There are three spaces for simultaneous rentals, so it’s very affordable. Or a really crazy local country buyer who may have heard of the singer might want to surround themselves with his universe. ”
Although the price is above the US market average, the current owner is “open to suggestions or negotiations with the right buyer”.
