I can't decide if I like it or if it's too blingy? Would you offer on it and if so, how much?

Bleurgh.
What are you going to do for natural light? It's been extended so far back that some of those rooms will be horribly dark.

I think it's absolutely hideous!

Bluntness100 Tue 10-Jan-17 10:14:36

I think it will need a lot of redecoration in areas but it does have a lot of space that other properties wouldn't maybe have in the price range.

Work out uour max budget and and how much to do the work, and subtract that cost and offer that.

It's not blingy. Not even slightly,

Tinkletwinkle Tue 10-Jan-17 10:14:48

Haha! grin

It's a yuck from me, it looks like it'd feel dark and cold. The 'features' are a bit weird and not in keeping. Back garden looks cramped for the size of the house. Sorry!

NotTodaySatan Tue 10-Jan-17 10:19:51

Err....It's not my cup of tea.

Mistykit Tue 10-Jan-17 10:23:33

Needs a full refurb imo. If I had to put an offer in (which I wouldn't as there's not much natural light and everything would need to be ripped out).. I would go with 30k under the asking price. ... but in reality I wouldn't be offering anything.

Oliversmumsarmy Tue 10-Jan-17 10:25:58

It has rooms that by the pictures look ok but definitely agree a lot of work

irregularegular Tue 10-Jan-17 10:28:05

Not sure what you mean? It seems very ordinary apart from the slightly odd games room/bar in the garage. Playroom potentially rather dark, but it doesn't look too bad in the photo. It's no stunner, but they seem to have made reasonable use of the space.

HowardMoonsJazzTrumpet Tue 10-Jan-17 10:28:33

The decor isn't to my taste but it looks to be in reasonable condition. I don't know the area so I don't know whether the price is reasonable or what else you get for that.

The dark games room is the garage, by the looks of things and wouldn't be my choice. I'm not keen on the long narrow and dark kitchen and family room, especially when they've been darkened by that pokey, ugly conservatory. The UPVC isn't to my taste, especially the chunky frames and faux stained glass. It needs a bit of money spending on it to fix the layout.

I do like the fact that it's end of terrace though. I wonder if any windows could be put in the detached side to brighten up the dark rooms? Or just take the conservatory down completely and knock the two back rooms through to give one open, fresh kitchen/family room with bifolds or French doors onto the garden.

Motherfuckers Tue 10-Jan-17 10:29:38

I love that bar! It looks like the pub in Shameless.

JillyTheDependableBoot Tue 10-Jan-17 10:30:10

No redeeming features whatsoever. It's awful.

Kirstyinnorway Tue 10-Jan-17 10:35:36

Awful awful awful. Sorry. I don't even know what you could do to that to make it better.

mouldycheesefan Tue 10-Jan-17 10:41:51

a hideous surprise in every room. But you can strip it all out and start again.

mynewnamechange Tue 10-Jan-17 10:43:56

This is what I needed! I hadn't even thought about the natural light vs extension thing as the photos are taken on a dark day.
The garden is a bit small but the house is big compared to others in the price range.
We wouldn't use the bar as a bar but would love the extra space (DH collects guitars).
Do you think knocking through the wall between the kitchen and the playroom would open it out and allow more light? No point putting another window in as it would just look out onto the fence so wouldn't let in more light.
The bathroom has a bloody TV in it! It is a bit blingy! confused

RJnomore1 Tue 10-Jan-17 10:46:41

Decor isn't to my taste. That's changeable though.

Quite like the kitchen although I prefer square to galley.

Bedrooms are teeny teeny tiny though and there's a lack of bathrooms but you get lots of living space for your money I guess.

Hoppinggreen Tue 10-Jan-17 10:49:30

Well it's not terrible
Clearly someone who fancies themselves as Lawrence whatsisface lives there but it can be undone as long as the location and price are good.

mynewnamechange Tue 10-Jan-17 10:50:17

My thinking was that it didn't matter if the bedrooms were small as we would use the family room.
It would only be a 5 year house rather than a forever home so thinking more about how to make it more appealing to buyers but without spending too much on it ( it's at the top of the area's ceiling price really)

Cakingbad Tue 10-Jan-17 10:51:19

It's a party house and it looks like the family have a lot of fun. Including in the bathroom. I would like to buy it and be more like them.
Would have to change all the wallpaper though.

mynewnamechange Tue 10-Jan-17 10:56:43

The wallpaper is hideous! grin

NotMeNoNo Tue 10-Jan-17 10:57:42

I'd love to have so much space, 3 decent downstairs rooms and a garage, and it's near the park and in a cul de sac. Offer depends on the local market but I wouldn't pay extra for the bar! We'd turn it back into a garage/workshop/office. Otherwise it's all cosmetic to change wallpaper etc. I'd also get some roof lights into the extended back of the lounge/kitchen.

They have concreted over a lot of the garden but then it does have a big garden for the area. Are you happy with the location?

HowardMoonsJazzTrumpet Tue 10-Jan-17 10:58:28

I wouldn't buy it if you want to make money on it in the short term.

NotMeNoNo Tue 10-Jan-17 11:02:58

x posted. If you are looking in the area, I don't think it's a bad spot. The extended back of the lounge and kitchen is flat roofed, so assuming the flat roof is in good condition you could do roof windows. The actual kitchen and bathroom fittings are neutral. Stained glass panels can be changed for a few £.

The conservatory looks a bit like they put a greenhouse on the patio but that might be just a case of changing the flooring and more cosy furniture.

Sidge Tue 10-Jan-17 11:03:05

I can't see a TV in the bathroom? It looks like one of those Bluetooth mirrors with lights.

I'm not keen on the house. The downstairs doesn't flow and the upstairs is very small - the bedrooms are really not a good size. Overall it looks dark and tatty.
