A Colorado Springs home formerly marketed and sold as a “slice of hell” over the summer is about to go up for sale again after extensive renovations.
The 3,598-square-foot home, at 4525 Churchill Court, was a nightmare, it sustained heavy and extensive damage, including graffiti-covered walls, warnings about a broken deck and a suggestion to wear a mask because of a freezer full of rotten meat. Doors, cabinets and walls were punctured with hammer holes and windows were broken.
But all of that has changed, said Sarah McGarry, a real estate broker with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services who represents “investors” who are about to put the home up for sale.
“There were major subfloor issues, lots of plumbing issues, they had to tear it apart to make it what it is today,” McGarry said.
A home staging, interior design and renovation company, 719 Staging & Design, that serves El Paso and Teller counties, is “currently creating a masterpiece in the famous ‘little slice of hell house,’” the company said in a Tuesday Instagram post.
McGarry said the house last sold, before extensive renovation, for $580,000.
The agent on the prior sale, Mimi Foster, marketed the heavily damaged version.
“If you dream of owning your own little slice of hell and turning it into a piece of heaven, then look no further,” Foster’s summer listing read. The listing went viral with more than 150,000 people checking it out on Redfin in the first 24 hours.
McGarry said the home will go on the market Thursday afternoon, but she’s already fielding calls about the upcoming sale.
“We kind of expected this because it made national news initially, they did such a great job with the description and marketing, it just took off. We were expecting it to do this again,” she said. “A lot of people are reaching out now. It’s pretty exciting.”
