Standing in the middle of suburban San Jose, California, is a sprawling Victorian mansion surrounded by beautifully kept gardens, which from the outside appears nothing out of the ordinary. But the inside is another story.

The house, originally belonging to Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester, is perhaps one of the strangest homes ever built. This seven-story mansion, containing over 160 rooms, is full of architectural curiosities and surprises —stairs that lead to ceilings or solid walls; doors that opened to steep drops; windows that open to other rooms; skylights placed in between floors; blind chimney that stops short of the ceiling and dozens of other oddities that resulted out of an inexplicable obsession that drove its former owner to keep building the house continuously for 38 years.
