It's described as picturesque!

OK, I grant you the swirly whirly carpet. Something in me really quite likes the multi-coloured one though. I'll get my coat grin

Yes, I think the person who picked the multi coloured one must have had a great personality.

I don't know what they think picturesque means, but...

It's fab.

I had carpets like those in the 70s, but then so did everybody.

MiaowTheCat Thu 07-Dec-17 14:58:12

We had a giant (square foot per leaf) cheeseplant pattern carpet in the early 80s

We had that exact bathroom even down to the soap holder thing, when I was a kid!

£1750 to rent this dump shock

Never mind the carpets - that bathroom is something else!

FluffyWuffy100 Thu 07-Dec-17 16:17:18

The really like the bathroom!

I can't have much confidence in the quality of the land lord though - someone that rents out a house with decor that old doesn't fill me with confidence that they are all over electrical and gas certificates etc

itshappening Thu 07-Dec-17 16:22:25

I think £1750 is less than you would expect for a three bed round there, so they've obviously tried to recognise the... ermm......retro fittings, but maybe not enough! It is odd because they could get a lot more for it if they modernised so must be quite an unusual situation.

Just -- are you my sibling ? same here EXACT bathroom - loved it - still think it looks quite cool really

MrsFezziwig Thu 07-Dec-17 16:27:39

I have just moved into a 1960s house and all the decor is like this. I intend to renovate it but as a 60s child myself I do have a sneaking love for my swirly carpets, Formica worktops and stone fireplace.
The landlord is having a laugh though.

I want the glass cabinets either side of the fireplace in the dining room...

The word 'psychedelic' comes to mind.

It would be a great house to be used as a film location for a 70s drama.

another20 Thu 07-Dec-17 16:34:19

I think it looks pretty immaculate and well cared for - though not updated obviously.

Looks like someone has just died and family want to rent for a while - I doubt it has rented before?

Those carpets look cheap though - electric shock cheap - doubt they would survive a robust carpet cleaning....I can imagine the rubber backing disintegrating ....

itshappening Thu 07-Dec-17 18:34:57

I think you are right another it must have been well cared for to survive as is.

That is one very well kept home and it is very true to it's age. I like it and I'm sure many families would. Not everyone want a hotel room look alike.
The house would not be up for rent without all the relevant safety certificates.
PS Those walnut wardrobes date to about the 1920s, I have a five piece set (was more)

My current rental has that exact swirly carpet. Been here 6 months as a stop gap. Leaving in 7 days and counting...

fuzzyduck1 Fri 08-Dec-17 08:43:58

Wow they look like my carpets.!!!

Our house was like that when we bought it.
