Not one month ago, we marveled at the warring impulses duking it out inside an otherwise tame-looking Richmond duplex, which went on the market in late August asking $1.65M. Thoroughly placid and innocuous from the street, the place nonetheless harbored deep existential angst within the wavy leopard-print walls of this black and gold bath, with its odd undulating special effect and inexplicable saloon doors. Now the property has sold for $2.25M, more than 36 percent above the asking price. Which means the bathroom is probably not long for this world, putting the brakes on an existential crisis that's been ongoing since probably the 80s. If you're the buyer, send us the after pics, wouldya? We want to see how this one ends.
