What are you showing off in your glass cases and your vitrine? Intrigued.

love the dividing doors, love the bathroom, love the loft room.

Do not like the look of the back garden or the area

countrykitten Thu 28-Feb-13 11:30:44

But apparently it's a much better area than the whole of Wales....

countrykitten Thu 28-Feb-13 11:31:07

Looks pretty rough to me and the crime stats are dreadful.

The doors would look ok in a grand country house or an old municipal library - which is no doubt where they came from originally - but they look ridiculous in a small Victorian terrace imo - totally out of place. Not massively keen on any of the decor. The modernist house on the other hand looks great, but sadly neglected.

The modernist house has a great garden but i am not a great lover of open plan living. It looks cold and a nightmare to heat.

Bloody Nora shock

A thread. About dividing doors. Has gone awry.

Baffledandbewildered Thu 28-Feb-13 12:03:12

Haha thought the house looked familiar !!!! I moved from this street 12 years ago . Very nice smile

Baffledandbewildered Thu 28-Feb-13 12:09:11

Its not in plumstead its blackheath . They are about 2 miles apart !!

CockyFox Thu 28-Feb-13 12:34:56

That's a lovely house, I was all set to post that not knowing London very well I was surprised that it cost so little ( a nice 3 bedroom near my parents in the midlands would cost nearly that) then I came on to see the comments about the area.

Not keen on the house, however I would love to live in a house with 2reception roons or at least a frigging door between the living room and kitvhn/dining room-I hate open plan living, I dream of doors and walls.

Pmsl countrykitten
OBVIOUSLY I was being offensive to demonstrate to cantspel how offensive she had been. You can't honestly have thought I was being serious? Not ^really?? shock.

And of course I don't mind if people don't like the house or even hate it. I haven't argued with anyone else who doesn't like it, have I? Its not my house, I don't even know Plumstead at all well. I just happen to like those room dividers.

"FM - please explain why you have used racist remarks in this thread. Really not impressed. Shows a rather high level of stupidity on your part."

Oh ha ha haaaaa!

twilight3 Thu 28-Feb-13 12:49:03

I like the dividing doors but the house is a bit.... well.... cosy to say the least wink

Fallenangle Thu 28-Feb-13 12:50:36

Its what my dad calls 'brewers taste'.

grovel Thu 28-Feb-13 12:52:59

I imagine welsh people would like the dividing doors.

Timetoask Thu 28-Feb-13 12:58:28

really old fashioned... horrible... sorry

Hullygully Thu 28-Feb-13 13:00:46

boring

FlouncingMintyy Thu 28-Feb-13 13:01:30

Only boring people get bored, did you Mum not tell you that Hully?

currentbuns Thu 28-Feb-13 13:02:12

Well I'd say the derelict dump in Dublin probably has more potential than the Plumstead one.

KobayashiMaru Thu 28-Feb-13 13:02:29

yeah but Howth is a seriously desirable area and once renovated that house could be worth a fair bit, even in this market.

Hullygully Thu 28-Feb-13 13:03:18

no

boring

Maryz Thu 28-Feb-13 13:05:24

Are the Welsh a separate race confused?

Hullygully Thu 28-Feb-13 13:06:19

well they do have leeks growing out of their ears and go to chapel when they aren't coal mining
