A controversial hot pink “emoji house” in Manhattan Beach, southern California is up for sale for the princely sum of $1,749,000.
The home sparked headlines across the world after its owner painted the exterior a vibrant shade of pink with two huge emoji faces on the walls. Although Kathryn Kidd claims the paint job was designed “to send a message to be happy,” her neighbors saw it as an “F-U to the rest of the street” after they reported her for illegally renting the two-floor duplex out on Airbnb. Now, Kidd has put the property up for sale.
Just a block from the beach, the house, built in 1931, is in a desirable location and has five parking spaces. After the house became something of an online sensation, tourists started visiting the street to see it and take photos, which duly annoyed the neighbours even more.
