Umm - why did they think that was a good look?

God that's seriously weird (esp in the bedrooms!)

Do we infer that the stuffed things are actually there but they photoshopped them out to show people what it could be like? (Or have they photoshopped them in to attract dead animal lovers?)

What the actual fuck is that all about????

I've got a horrible feeling that the CGI is in the cleared rooms, with the taxidermy the actual rooms. Look at the mirror in the dining room - blank in the cleared pic, reflections of animals in the other one...

hahaha,

do you think it was someone messing about in photoshop and they accidentally got uploaded or they are all actually there and they had to photoshop them out for the 'this is what it could look like photos'

Omg .....

The taxidermy pics have quite elaborate shadows. I think they are the real ones

The floorplan shows that there are two toilets off the master bedroom. His n' her bogs.

I agree - look also at the shadows on the wall. It would take forever to have photoshopped those in, much easier to smudge them out when deleting the dead animal collection from hell. Plus some of the walls look strangely empty without half of Noah's ark hanging from them.

Notice the dear old pheasants on the living room mantelpiece survive the airbrushing!

Holy shit! I would think that all those animals are the real deal and have been photoshopped out for visualising purposes.

I think those are walk-in cupboards, not WCs.

but how weird!

Yama Fri 18-Jul-14 20:12:51

Yes, walk in cupboards. Of course. That makes sense.

Disappointed there isn't any in the bathrooms.

notapizzaeater Fri 18-Jul-14 20:42:22

Perhaps the steam ruins the fur !

tribpot Fri 18-Jul-14 20:52:42

I pity the poor bugger who had to photoshop them out in all their creepy glory.

Oh good Lord, you're right, the 'blank canvas' was the photoshopped bit - envy <---vom emoticon.

Think I need to go for a restorative tipple based on that...

Bonkers but what an utterly amazing apartment, building and location swoon

Politelydeclining Fri 18-Jul-14 21:03:14

That is incredibly disturbing.

unlucky83 Fri 18-Jul-14 21:08:41

That's a carpet beetles idea of heaven - all those rotting hides for them to feast on... Yuk...

Nah, it's a) American (think "Huntin', Shootin' Fishin'") and "on the market for the first time in 50 years". So the owner is probably 80, ill or passed away, and that's a lifetime of shooting paraphanalia that he/she (probably he!) has lovingly collected over the years.

I suspect they was not a vegan.....

Aethelfleda Fri 18-Jul-14 21:12:51

Ah, read the link. Not a hunter then!

KissMyFatArse Fri 18-Jul-14 21:12:55

Eccentric and rank!

CitronVert Fri 18-Jul-14 21:15:29

Imagine trying to sleep in one of the bedrooms with all those cold, dead eyes looking at you. I freak out if there's a moth in my bedroom.

tribpot Fri 18-Jul-14 21:17:46

In all, Mr. Speck owns 400 specimens — 200 at the Beresford apartment and 200 at his home in Harrisonburg, Va.

He truly is the Noah of taxidermy.

That is truly hideous. Great location though.
