Lovely garden though

Those panels are painted mdf, surely??

The outside is gorgeous, inside is far too busy.

Awful. Wonder why he's selling? He'll have to go a lot smaller in London for that price...

It looks like how I imagine a migraine would look.

Does anybody remember him on that programme asking somebody to draw with a Biro and a ruler lines on the MDF on the floor so that it looked like floorboards? And yes with special lighting and at a great distance it looked convincing but I remember thinking when the couple arrived home they would murder him.

Grisly. Poor house!

Mrswellyboot Sun 30-Mar-14 22:32:22

Handy spare dining room for those annoying evenings when you double book your dinner parties, I see.

Lottiedoubtie Sun 30-Mar-14 22:54:03

I'm just shock that you can spend the best part of two million, be Laurence L-B and STILL have a dining area narrow enough to do that stupid estate agent thing of setting the dining table but pushing it up against a wall so noone could sit down one side of the table hmm

Most of the rooms would be bearable once the furniture, pictures, accessories and curtains were gone grin

Ooo wonder why he is selling up. Do you think he is downsizing cos he isn't on the telly any more?

This makes me glad my husband takes so little interest in interior design.

WhatDoIDoHere Mon 31-Mar-14 11:02:53

He had his house on the market a while back.

AnonymousBird Mon 31-Mar-14 11:05:06

My head hurts looking at that. Does he take A LOT of drugs?

Beautiful house and gardens - I wouldn't say no if I had that sort of money! Some of the rooms are a bit busy (the 2 dining rooms in particular!) but it's not like you wouldn't redecorate to your taste eventually. Some of the rooms are really lovely as they are.

minibmw2010 Mon 31-Mar-14 15:15:16

Why does anyone need 2 dining rooms and when was it ever a good idea to match your table cloth to your wallpaper ??? smile

It has potential to be a beautiful house but if I was paying £1.75m I'd want a lot nicer than that.

bigTillyMint Mon 31-Mar-14 15:18:01

The house itself and garden are beautiful, but it's way too busy.

CrazyOldCatLady Mon 31-Mar-14 15:18:25

Definitely huge potential and most of the garden is lovely but the interior makes me wonder how he was ever known for his design ability? It's dire.

ClownsLeftJokersRight Mon 31-Mar-14 15:20:54

Laurence, have you been painting on the walls again? Hmmm???hmm

MillyMollyMama Tue 01-Apr-14 01:07:54

I think some of the furniture makes the rooms look too busy but with plainer furniture, it would be a lot calmer. For example the swirly dining chairs in one room and the table cloth in the other dining room! I thought it was a pretty fair price considering where it is and the quality of the actual house and garden. It is not that difficult to remove wallpaper! I love the garden. His wife kept her Port Isaac shop for 5 minutes. They are butterflies! It will always be on to the next project.
