For Sale: Syd's house

The Cambridge, England house belonging to the late Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd, is up for sale for about $550,000 -- and it's reportedly attracting large numbers of viewers. Real estate agents are bringing as many as 40 parties a day to look at the three-bedroom semi-detached 1930s-era house, some of whom are interested in the house, some of whom possibly just want to see the strange interior.
The house's walls are painted pink, orange, brown, blue, turquoise, and lavender, and the rooms are filled with makeshift shelving. The house itself needs some work, or, as the real estate agent puts it, "provides an excellent opportunity for sympathetic improvement and updating."
