“The Tenant From Hell”
The majestic home had it all — five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a three-car garage and a spacious basement in a beautiful neighborhood in Colorado Springs. If the single-family house sounds too good to be true, stepping inside the property shows prospective buyers a stunning reality: walls spray-painted with vulgarities, rooms destroyed with a hammer, carpet reeking of human and animal feces, and dead cats locked in a bathroom.
“How do you like the s— on the carpets,” read the spray paint in the dining room.
What was once Suzy Myers’s pride and joy was now every landlord’s nightmare, thanks to a departing tenant who didn’t pay rent, she told The Washington Post. A Tuesday listing on Redfin described the house as a “little slice of hell” that stemmed from, fittingly, “a tenant from hell.”
“This house is not for the faint of heart but for that special person who can see through the rough diamond to the polished gem inside,” real estate agent Mimi Foster wrote. She said in a video tour of the home, “Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to encounter.”
