All looks perfectly normal country house property porn until picture 5, then pic 10. WTF??

It's a tiger isn't it?

KarmaNoMore Sat 07-Feb-15 10:01:13

It seems to be a very friendly crocodile (and a curious one... Why is it keeping an eye on the bed?)

Behooven Sat 07-Feb-15 10:01:59

angry at the tiger skin, but a weird standing up crocodile too hmm

MorrisZapp Sat 07-Feb-15 10:04:58

Oh that is a gorgeous house. So gorgeous. Sigh.

BumWad Sat 07-Feb-15 10:07:28

What a stunning house.

AliceinWinterWonderland Sat 07-Feb-15 10:22:06

Aw, that's lovely, and it's not too horribly far from me.

<starts digging under the sofa cushions to put together the cash to buy>

Beautiful, love the garden.

LuckyLuckyMe Sat 07-Feb-15 10:25:06

Wow. I love it. I wouldn't care if it came with strange animals. I could learn to live with them grin

Wow ! Laughed at the deflated tiger !

I always wonder about the staged photos - you know the ones where the table is set for a romantic meal for eight. If I were to do the same I'm not sure the IKEA plastic plates and sippy cups would have quite the same appeal....

i need to live there - my life would be perfect if i lived there (minus the dead things and the LOVE letters in the kitchen!)

BeezusFafoon Sat 07-Feb-15 10:47:54

Please please can this be the MN house? We all put a few quid in and draw out names for holiday slots. C'mon... grin

Seriously, you laughed at the tiger skin? It disgusts me and I would be put completely off viewing that house because of it small matter of not having £6 million aside.

A tiger skin spread out across a grand piano - just about one of the most tasteless things I've ever seen.

MessyHairSoThere Sat 07-Feb-15 10:51:11

wow. I could live there...........

lemisscared Sat 07-Feb-15 10:52:15 seems to be a theme!

MessyHairSoThere Sat 07-Feb-15 10:53:10

Mintyy, my aunt and uncle used to ahve a few similar "exhibits" because they lived in Africa for a while, but if the tiger was born in 1967 and would be long dead anyway, and was killed and skinned and marketed and purchased by people who were living in a different time....... would it still put you off??? I don't imagine my cousins fell out over their parents''souvenirs' mind you.

TheyLearnedFromBrian Sat 07-Feb-15 10:54:14

Horrid tiger. The croc is ridiculous - what is it supposed to be doing? Begging mummy to wake up and give it its morning CrocDreamies?

TheyLearnedFromBrian Sat 07-Feb-15 10:55:59

Ah now I reckon the skin in House 2 is an Aldi one.

Prefer House 2 - it's also in the Piddle Valley grin

lemisscared Sat 07-Feb-15 10:56:08 at least they completely flatten the poor mountain lion hmm

MarshaBrady Sat 07-Feb-15 10:57:17

yeah the tiger is grim.

I'd change the interior a bit

Mintyy Sat 07-Feb-15 11:02:20

Yes, it really would put me off! I hate animal trophies. Yuck.

Mintyy Sat 07-Feb-15 11:04:17

Erm ... picture 7 in the N Yorkshire one?? shock

KarmaNoMore Sat 07-Feb-15 11:06:25

Minty... I agree with you, but there is something else to consider. I remember staying in a house where the very polite owners had an elephant leg umbrella holder.

It was placed next to a desk in the library, hardly the place to put your wet umbrella, I really don't think they were the kind of people to condone big game hunting but do think that they may have been lumbered with it as part of the inheritance of great great granny and, as it happens with other horrid antiques, the family connection didn't allow them to dispose of it. (I'm sure however, that they would have hidden it if they had the house for sale!)

KarmaNoMore Sat 07-Feb-15 11:17:51

I admit that picture 7 in the North Yorkshire one is more off putting that any taxidermia I have seen.

Do you think the house belongs to the person in the pictures? The face looks familiar. Quite scary... I accidentally had a picnic (and a nap) near that house (I didn't notice that I was traspassing until I saw the house blush)

Oh my goodness that house is gorgeous!

I did giggle at the tiger and crocodile though. I really liked the crocodile, he can stay.
