I love old, quirky houses but this one looks almost too old and creepy!

Could you love this house?

Oooh I could love it! Needs some tlc as it does look a bit on the damp side and the outside needs painting and sorting, but those windows! It could be made very, very lovely.

Bad photo of the stairs - that's what makes it look creepy.

ImperialBlether Wed 24-Feb-16 22:34:36

Oh I don't even want to look at the inside photos of that house!

Owllady Wed 24-Feb-16 22:35:57

It's going to cost a fortune to strip off all the render and plaster and make it water tight
It's lovely though esp for the money

Oh I bet that house could tell some stories <3

400 years of stories! I imagine you would hear a ghost with every creak. It's in a very quaint old fishing village, I imagine there have lots of inhabitants over the years.

It looks a million times better on street view.

Condorwoman Wed 24-Feb-16 22:51:48

The outside isn't pretty but inside could be amazing.

I think the photographer has failed it tbh. That budgie wallpaper is very pretty and colourful in real life, a friend has it, it looks dark and depressing on the photo.

Apart from the strange man in the hazard boiler suit!

Bunbaker Wed 24-Feb-16 22:52:14

No. The ceilings are too low and the windows too small. I find the rooms dark and pokey. It isn't for me at all.

Condorwoman Wed 24-Feb-16 22:53:12

It looks totally different on streetview! Definitely think the person taking the photos was having a very off day.

MummySparkle Wed 24-Feb-16 22:55:13

I love it! Although not sure what they were thinking when they opted for a blue fireplace... It does need TLC, but the stairs are nice and I love the stone fireplace. There is a lot of potential there OP

ouryve Wed 24-Feb-16 22:55:29

It looks cold and damp.

Bet it could be lovely with some TLC, though.

BunnyTyler Wed 24-Feb-16 23:00:47

The downstairs and stairway are pretty creepy!

It's the sort of quietly

BunnyTyler Wed 24-Feb-16 23:01:53

Posted by accident too soon!

...it's the sort of quirky place that is love to have loads of money to make it gorgeous though.

I live in a relatively nearby town and I'm always looking for properties in our price-range, but I really don't think I could ever be comfortable in this house, or that I could visit it and feel any warmth or potential. Maybe it's just the poor photos and the house has a much nicer atmosphere. I think it's probably sold now as the closing date has passed, although it still seems to active on Zoopla. I think I must be more conventional than I like to think I am.

I have my eye on this: www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-36380949.html

(not really - it's about 20x what I could afford)

bessiebumptious2 Wed 24-Feb-16 23:24:28

Prices seem so disproportionate when you get to this end of the market though. Look how many rooms/how much square footage the Kent house has in comparison - it doesn't add up!!

Lovely view from the bedroom though and soooo much light grin

SnuffleGruntSnorter Wed 24-Feb-16 23:26:04

I think it has SO much potential! We're SE though so it seems crazy what you get for your money. A C17 villa for less than 200k! You don't get a mobile home for that here.

Costacoffeeplease Wed 24-Feb-16 23:33:21

Hmm, nice photo of the wheelie bin, but yes, very cold and damp looking

JeffreySadsacIsUnwell Wed 24-Feb-16 23:34:06

Well, it's obviously damp on the walls, but I can't work out whether the dark patches on the floors e.g. In front of the blocked-up fireplace are also damp-related or whether they're bloodstains...

slicedfinger Wed 24-Feb-16 23:35:55

The closing date has passed. I wonder what it went for?

Behooven Wed 24-Feb-16 23:49:24

1600! Wow, it's seen life, death and everything in between.

FoolsAndJesters Wed 24-Feb-16 23:56:52

The Ramsgate house is amazing. It used to be a children's home. I bet it's got a few stories to tell too.

RaphaellaTheSpanishWaterDog Wed 24-Feb-16 23:59:09

I love it - and it seems such a good price, is it likely to go for much over that d'you think?

It reminds me a lot of our last house, that had a very dark, creepy feel when we viewed in 2011 --not helped by lack of lighting downstairs and a power cut the day we viewed......
