I think this may be one of the most boring houses I've ever seen

The house itself is nice I think, a boring but big garden, good basic outline - but the décor..........attack of the 'shove flowery wallpaper up and that will be interesting' combined with THE BIG LETTERS everywhere, a very disappointing kitchen and even some twigs and shit randomly in a vase.

Weird that painting everything magnolia and removing the owners belongings would actually make this a more interesting house!

It's not my style but it's pretty inoffensive when you ignore the matching wallpaper and bed linin

I'd buy it!

PixieGio Wed 24-Feb-16 20:12:17

Ugh I'd have to do pretty much everything ok... especially that pink and black kitchen hmm

PixieGio Wed 24-Feb-16 20:12:32

Everything again not ok!

They've put the letter A in the BATH sign the wrong way round. I can't tell you how much that upsets me.

What a truly bizarre thing to post.

It's fine. Maybe not to everyone's taste but I wouldn't call it 'boring'

Do you not like the vendors or something?

I like it!! I don't think it's boring at all.

I'd buy it in a shot blush

It's big! You get a lot of bang for your buck up North...

There is something wrong with the outside shots. The weather in the sky, and the light, is summer, but the house and pavements are Autumn/winter. I can't work it out, have they photoshopped it?

TheHumanSatsuma Wed 24-Feb-16 20:16:05

I like it. The basics are good. Just needs re decorating-and a new kitchen!

Buckinbronco Wed 24-Feb-16 20:17:18

Really? I don't think it's any more or less boring than most houses. Boring Is a strange word to use. It's a bit cheap looking though

WidowWadman Wed 24-Feb-16 20:17:19

York isn't cheap, but 550k for a 4 bed where it is seem steep.

SwedishEdith Wed 24-Feb-16 20:19:09

God, yes, the sky is weird.

I've seen way worse than that for unimaginative houses. Not my taste but pretty easy to fix quite a lot of it.

snowymountaintops Wed 24-Feb-16 20:19:52

I always wonder if the owners' of these linked houses ever see their homes up on a forum like this?

It's not boring, just a bit garish. Nothing that a few cans of cream and grey paint wouldn't fix grin!

tictactoad Wed 24-Feb-16 20:20:07

Not seeing a problem with it. Looks fine to me.

Quite tidy though. Has it been 'staged'?

Longdistance Wed 24-Feb-16 20:20:12

There's nothing wrong with the house itself that a lick of paint, and change of wallpaper won't do.

frikadela01 Wed 24-Feb-16 20:21:34

I was expecting the entire house to be beige. I don't see what's boring about it. Obviously it's not going to be to everyones taste. What a strange post.

Northernlurker Wed 24-Feb-16 20:22:17

grin No don't know the vendors.

I'd buy it too, just found it weird when I looked at it how much it grated on me.

Especially the BATH sign grin

TurnOffTheTv Wed 24-Feb-16 20:22:36

Good god I've seen a lot worse.
Absolutely nothing wrong with it!

BackforGood Wed 24-Feb-16 20:23:01

I can't see what you are objecting to either confused

Looks lovely to me - wish I could afford a house with that kind of space.

bibbitybobbityyhat Wed 24-Feb-16 20:24:45

I would say cliched rather than boring. And will date is already dated very rapidly.

Otherwise I would say lovely house, disappointing garden. Who needs a double garage plus space for 2 cars on the drive?

cashewnutty Wed 24-Feb-16 20:25:06

The sky is definitely photoshopped. Look at the clouds in pictures 3 & 11. Different aspects, identical clouds!

Sparklycat Wed 24-Feb-16 20:26:21

It's not boring at all, a lovely house. Is this some kind of reverse thing where you are the owner and secretly want compliments?

Wondermoomin Wed 24-Feb-16 20:28:14

Well this is rather bitchy, putting up a link to photos of someone's home just to criticise it... hmm

There's nothing wrong with it, it's similar to lots of houses up and down the country, why pick on this one... confused
