(Vocus/PRWEB) April 01, 2011
Ryan Gehris, a broker with HOUSEPAD LLP, has listed in the multiple listing service (MLS) and Realtor.com what may be the world's most expensive chicken coop. Offered at $2,442,526, the "luxurious residence for the high-flyer" is generating a lot of attention, despite the woes of the real estate industry.
Asked how the list price was determined, Mr. Gehris replied "There were not many coops for us to compare this one too, it truly is a rare jewel. Fortunately my extensive experience in the luxury hen-house market enabled me to employ a proprietary algorithm to calculate the price."
The notable listing has the distinction of being "located within 3 hours of NYC, DC, and other important places." The accommodations include 5 private bedrooms (eggboxes) on over 2 acres. The property is located outside of Reading, Pennsylvania. Other improvements on the property include a shed and a residential outbuilding. The yard features a security fence that will "keep out even your most obsessive fans," and an "aerial security system to thwart the paparazzi hawks." Chickens are not included. The entire listing description may viewed at the Realtor.com listing webpage.
HOUSEPAD LLP accepted the listing with the term being for a remarkably short one day period. "That is a show of confidance in the demand for a property of this unique nature", says the broker. The hen house boasts more historical character than the average coop. It previously served as an out-house before being converted. Meticulously cared for, the seller is requesting that prospective buyers remove their shoes before entering.
