Listed in Boise, Idaho, this spud-shaped abode (perfectly modeled to resemble the state's famous crop of Russet Burbanks) is no small fry. It measures a whopping 28 feet long and 12 feet wide and weighs an impressive six tons.

Not only is this potato big, but it's also kinda a big deal – the massive vegetable recently travelled the country for six years on the back of a truck to raise awareness about the state's most famous plant. When the tour was over, small-home developer Kristie Wolfe had the bright idea to turn the potato into a property.

Inside, the design is surprisingly modern with millennial-pink accents and plenty of house plants. Amenities include a custom-built queen-size bed, kitchenette, indoor fireplace, air conditioning and old records to set the mood.

As is only natural, the potato is located in a huge field within 400 acres of good ol’ Idaho farmland. You'll have views of the Owyhee Mountains and a cute cow to keep you company.
