For Sale: Mansion With Ridiculous Star Wars Bedroom
Some people's bedrooms are decorated with IKEA's Malm family. Other people's are decorated like the planet Hoth. There's a mansion for sale at 955 Vista Ridge Lane in Westlake Village that has many amenities, Curbed LA reports. Among other less exciting features, it has a bedroom that looks like the snowy tundra of Hoth, the planet in The Empire Strikes Back where Luke Skywalker has to cut open and crawl inside a Tauntaun for warmth. Can you imagine bringing a date home from the bar to share a glass of wine while lounging in your Airspeeder bed, nervously glancing at the fake snow that covers your ceiling while wondering who's going to make the first move? That's romance. You might be saying to yourself, 'uh, I think that's supposed to be a kid's bedroom.' Oh, yeah? Then why is there a mural of a probe droid behind the bed, huh?
The 15,000-square-foot mansion of your roleplaying dreams also contains five bedrooms (not including the Hoth one), 11 bathrooms, a gym, a library, a theatre, half a basketball court, a game room and six fireplaces. It sits on 4.3 acres, on which there is also a pool, waterfall and waterslide. The house was built in 1991 (obviously) by Dirk Gates, founder and CEO of tech companies Xircom and Xirrus. It's basically the dream vacation resort of the grand prize winner of Double Dare.
There are plenty of other LARPing opportunities in the house. For instance, you can shiver your timbers in this pirate-themed bedroom.
