Well......... <<lost for words>>
Though I am wondering about the rooms they haven't photgraphed.

I just love the cuddly toy heads on the beam in the "grand hall"

I'm hoping it's all tongue in cheek...

I like that house a lot. The balcony, the South Wing, the big range cooker and especially the lion's head - but I am not sure about a suit of armour watching me while I watch TV. That's where I draw the line.

South wing. Pmsl. I'm off down the garden to the shed and puddles annex and pool.

I agree SDT it is nice, a bit unusual (which is why I looked at it), It is just so confused, some rooms are just so normal, like the kitchen. While others are very, very strange.

I agree Have that's what's so bizarre. Real Jekyll and Hyde house. I wonder if the sellers are splitting up...

British eccentricity at its best! Wish I had the courage to label my shed as the South Wing of Rat-tat-tat Towers.

Actually the belongings in the house are a bit odd, but get rid of the clutter and it is Ok. Lots of space and a decent garden. Estate Agent describing the kitchen style as Charles Rennie Mackintosh is a bit OTT in my view, but this is a decent family house with quirky owners. I don't think the rooms are that strange if you look at the floor plan. I think it is what is in them! Also it is the first time on the market since 1996, so it clearly has been a long time home, not a show house, for people with an odd sense of humour. Nothing that cannot be put right.

the toy animal heads and the baby photos are brilliant!

Is this where Laurence Llewelyn Bowen lives? grin

WillieWaggledagger Wed 02-Apr-14 15:33:03

no this is LLB's house!

Owner has a very good sense of humour (I hope) grin

My OH would love a suit of armour! I love it, I think there's a real sense of humour at work.

I was expecting a brace of pheasants to be hanging up in the kitchen. I am very disappointed.
