Sorry this is house...

babyfedleaning Fri 28-Feb-14 19:36:59

No one? Not even for the golden table in the bathroom???

Freaky weeping angel type statue in the hall.

Wowsers. Who lives there now? A maharajah from the 1930s?

I love the parasol above the chair in the lounge. I need a parasol above my end of the settee.

Ok, I'll bite.

Am envy overall as it looks stunning.

My first observation was...what's with all the crucifixes? To ward off the local vampires?

Did they buy job lots of gilded furniture from a brothel that was closing down? Also bright yellow paint and red velvet?

Bloody hell. Lucky her. hmm

She's got a few bob then?

If it was around here it would be well into seven figure envy

Personally I think every bath should have a mosquito net. Should be compulsory.

Methe Fri 28-Feb-14 19:42:10

I love it!

Northernlurker Fri 28-Feb-14 19:42:29

I can see twigs and pebbly shit on the stairs....

mymatemax Fri 28-Feb-14 19:44:04

beautiful house, with a paintjob

Northernlurker Fri 28-Feb-14 19:45:12

That's a fab house though - the 'bones' of it are great. looks like all their energy went in to the interior not the garden. It looks quite neglected.

babyfedleaning Fri 28-Feb-14 19:46:11

It's almost bearable, were it not for the gilding and the high catholicism

I would love to get my hands on that house. Fabulous proportions, as Georgian houses have, lovely bog windows so lots of light. And the garden is great. I could even move my parents into the coach house for babysitting. Bliss. Unfortunately, we live within the m25 and property in the same price range as this house is truly limited in comparison.

What a gorgeous house envy

The Triad-inspired decor not so much.

Do you think there is actually a baby in the house, or do you think the cot complete with mozzie net is for one of those creepy reborn dolls?

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Fri 28-Feb-14 19:48:29

I love these. I love other people's eccentricities. Thanks OP smile

If I could afford the asking price plus

1. to decorate everywhere- some horrible paint in evidence.
2. To hire a cleaner for a lot of hours a week.
3. To hire a gardener also for lots of hours

AND I could guarantee the current owners were taking all of their hideous furniture with them.

Then I'd buy it- potentially a really beautiful house.

Maybe the strange antique pram behind the umbrella is for the re-born's daytime naps...

CalamitouslyWrong Fri 28-Feb-14 19:54:32

I like how the gold coffee table in the living room matches the one in the bathroom. Continuity and all that.

And the lime green bedroom. I bet they didn't find that in F&B.

Wowsers is the word that came to me too. Some of the decor is not to my taste (tactful) but it is a fab house.
