Real estate: This Portland bungalow has all the modern conveniences and also lots of dinosaurs
· · Nov 20, 2022 ·

If you're looking for that special one-of-a-kind retreat with your family, look no farther than a little three-bedroom in Washougal, Washington:

"The original seller built it himself," Louise James, the listing agent and a licensed broker with Cascade Hasson Sotheby's International Realty, said. "It was originally just a small shed on the land and then he built this really nice, kind of contemporary-looking small house."

Since the house was built just two years ago, one buyer transformed it into a place not just for short-term renters wanting a fun stay, but for families in search of a unique home. What is now known as the Jurassic Retreat has five motorized, life-sized dinosaurs that even make their own dinosaur sounds. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom property also has a jacuzzi and more movie-themed decorations indoors.

Here's a question: Where on earth did the buyer get "five motorized, life-sized dinosaurs?" Did he just have those lying around in his garage?

But I digress:

That definitely looks like a command center to which you'd retreat after the dinosaurs get out of hand. Don't worry that won't happen here though.

Pretty sure I'm counting like nine copyright violations in this one photo alone.

You got to love that T. Rex just looking everywhere for that triceratops over in the corner there. Keep trying, buddy!

Nothing like relaxing in the hot tub with a raptor keeping hungry watch over you!

Not a whole lot in this photo to remark on except I think I see complimentary bags of Fritos in that basket and let me tell you, that seals the deal for me.

I'm so excited about this property I feel like I have to run there right now!
