Very nice

FlouncingMintyy Wed 27-Feb-13 23:12:05

I adore them. Shame the garden is so small sad.

Devora Wed 27-Feb-13 23:21:12

Wow, they are seriously beautiful. If I lived there I wouldn't need a telly - I'd just sit and drool over my screens all day.

MummytoMog Wed 27-Feb-13 23:25:13

Ooh, we're putting something like that into our living room - ta for the inspiration!

I used to live in the next road to that house smile

If you lived there you wouldn't have a telly - it would have been nicked along with the rest of your household possessions, and probably your car too.

I love them too.

I think having two small rooms is coming back now and people will be reinstating the walls between front and back rooms again....funny how these things go in phases....

The tiled path is gorgeous.

Gosh am I alone in finding the whole house twee & like a saloon bar. Thought the doors were naff. Just me then.

No, I think they're awful too. Plumstead is a bit rough.

Are you all joking?

You are joking us?

<<nods to self definitely joking>>

They truly are a thing of beauty!

Interestingly in the same road there is a terrace of beautiful modernist houses designed by the highly renowned architect Bernard Lubetkin. Totally random to find such lovely iconic houses in what is essentially the arsehole of south east London.

no saloon bar here

I like both. This is why I don't own, too hard to decide. (Nothing at all to do with money or with having to move so often, nope.)

But what is a reception? That first ad said "3 receptions." Is it a living room?

Devora Wed 27-Feb-13 23:52:27

Yeah, Plumstead is a high price to pay for beautiful dividing doors.

I LOVE dividing doors. I agree they are bound to come back as we plunge into global warming and no-one can afford to heat their open plan kitchen diners. The double height afficionados are doomed.

Sorry, I am not feelin' the love. sad

MaggieMaggieMaggieMcGill Thu 28-Feb-13 01:03:21

I love love love the staircase on the modern house but I was also quite taken with the dividing doors!

ripsishere Thu 28-Feb-13 01:06:16

Don't like the dividing doors at all.
I was considering getting a chippy to knock us up a set. In our house in Engand, we have a 'through lounge'. It was shocking to heat.

TheSmallerPenguin Thu 28-Feb-13 01:31:36

[Shock] I'd have them out within 24hrs of getting the keys.

FillyPutty Thu 28-Feb-13 01:45:29

Ugh, £400,000 to live in the ghetto in a little terrace.

Just why?

HollyBerryBush Thu 28-Feb-13 03:44:54

>eek< I wouldnt live in Plumstead. Every time my son goes down that way he gets mugged.

FlouncingMintyy Thu 28-Feb-13 09:07:41

I like the bathroom too! But am not seriously going to move to Plumstead, don't worry. You can't get a 4 bed house in London for that price without there being a serious downside ... and in this case the area is the downside.

nope hate it and the screens and the kids bedroom was v OTT

mrsjay Thu 28-Feb-13 09:15:28

and it looks like they have done away with alcovey bits in the living room I like alcovey bits grin

They're ugly. The whole house looks like its trying too hard to be something that its not. The bathroom is shocking.
