A Lego-themed house in Kenosha went viral and sold after just a few days on the market. Singer Jason Isbell took note with a wry comment.

The seller of this Lego fanatic's dream house owns more than a million Lego pieces and transformed the Kenosha home into something of a mini Legoland. The kitchen backsplash contains more than 4,000 Legos. A Lego mural adorns the living room wall. The toilet paper dispenser is a Lego man.

A Lego fanatic's dream house in Kenosha sold after just a few days on the market.

The listing for the house, by RE/MAX agent agent Alissa Traughber for $250,000, went viral on Twitter Monday. But by that point, a local buyer had already scooped up the property.

"No way in hell I'm walking around this house without shoes on," singer-songwriter Jason Isbell tweeted.

"I hope the wife is ready to relocate," quipped another Twitter user.

The house is on 61st Ave. near 75th St. and Green Bay Road.

Realtors make an exception for the Kenosha Lego house

Realtors often advise their clients to keep it neutral: inconspicuous wall colors, inoffensive decor. So normally, Traughber would have advised her clients to tone it down.

But for this house, she made an exception.

"I feel like I'm coming off like a genius here," she joked.

Interest in the home was overwhelming, even before its viral moment.

The house was listed on Thursday. By Sunday night, Traughber and her client were reviewing seven offers. In just a few days, they had about 25 showings.

Traughber said the accepted offer was all cash and well above asking. The buyer plans to rent out the home, Traughber said.

Traughber said the experience was a good lesson for her, and a reminder that unique touches aren't always a liability.

"Hopefully it makes agents think outside the box," Traughber said.
