Speaking about his discovery to Bored Panda, the Twitter user said: ‘I live in Pittsburgh and came across the listing via my local subreddit. The front exterior photo is completely unremarkable. It’s very typical of the 1960s Suburban Pittsburgh housing vernacular… particularly in the eastern suburbs.
‘That’s the kind of home they built for middle-class families in the last days of steel. The first surprise came with the photos of the backyard.
‘Not only is the yard larger than one would suspect, but swimming pools are exceedingly rare in this region, due to the hilly topography and small window of summer-like temperatures.
‘The living room and library appear to have some light medieval theming with a large outer space mural, which is the first indication that we are dealing with something truly special here.’
