Can you have a look at this house, the pictures and the drawings, and tell me if it makes any sense at all?

here

Catsmamma Sat 28-Jan-12 21:56:38

have they removed ALL the internal walls down stairs???

goes back for another look

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 21:57:27

That too. But, WTF have they done upstairs??

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 21:58:47

Yep.

Makes plenty of sense to me

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 21:59:52

They have added a mezzanine to the master bedroom by using up part of the attic space.

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 22:00:24

Who would turn the master bedroom into a massive staircase? A massive staircase that leads up to a narrow galley that overlooks the other rooms on the first floor?

(aside from SecretNutella, that is wink )

I like it.

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 22:01:13

They have added a staircase in the master bedroom, which makes the room too small for anything else but a wardrobe, or a single bed, at a push..

Catsmamma Sat 28-Jan-12 22:01:22

gawdknows!

the stairs to the gallery are in one of the bedrooms...what can that area be used for? It's wasted space really...maybe a teen room with extra space? But it also has the ensuite!

have you been to see it...maybe it works in real life.

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 22:02:02

I havent been to see it. But look at the size of the third bedroom, and it has NO WINDOW!

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 22:02:13

Maybe they use the space as a library/study area?

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 22:02:57

It looks like there are skylights

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 22:03:52

Quint- they have 4 built in cupboards in the master bedroom. No shortage of space

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 22:03:52

I think the skylight must be in the gallery! Try mentally superimpose the gallery over the first floor...

Catsmamma Sat 28-Jan-12 22:05:20

I had not noticed the no window.

and is the whole place really only 11 ft wide? <breathe in>

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 22:05:23

It's directly above the front bedroom, but set back a little from the front of the house, as there is a sky light over the front there, but not in the gallery

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 22:06:56

The skylight, if you look at the bedroom that now holds the staircase is visible, because they have taken away the floor of the loft, to make the gallery.

What holds the floors up, if they have removed all internal walls downstairs, and the ceiling/floor in the loft?

Catsmamma Sat 28-Jan-12 22:08:16

and the bedroom with the white linen, and pink chair...looks like it is on the ground floor....double doors and a fence view.

Totally weird and the estate agents must be lying. Quiet road - that near a rail line? Also strange stuff in the garden - think you would be paying over the top for someone else curiosities.

SecretNutellaFix Sat 28-Jan-12 22:09:24

Possibly some very strong beams. and a prayer.

Catsmamma- that is the back bedroom- it has double doors.

Catsmamma Sat 28-Jan-12 22:10:57

must be a high fence! :D

Never even consider a house where the EA details don't show you the front elevation.

Bedroom 3 appears to have no windows, nor does the main functioning area of the kitchen.

It looks like a tiny mews house which has been badly fiddled about with.

notyummy Sat 28-Jan-12 22:11:31

I still can't get over the price <naive northerner>

We own 2 houses and put together they are probably worth just over half of that.

QuintessentialyHollow Sat 28-Jan-12 22:12:01

It is a very strange property. Shame, because it is in a very nice neighborhood.

It is very quiet actually. We lived there for a week on a short let before moving in to our current rented property.

bibbitybobbityhat Sat 28-Jan-12 22:12:25

And what tf is Little Chelsea?
