Okay, so there will be some people who love it but I can only imagine how much was spent creating this and, in my opinion, it's a monstrosity!!

Such a shame... Canterbury

Sorry, but I love it.

For perspective, same price three miles away.... more like 2.5 million in this area

Pic 5&8 are howlers.the lulu Guinness inspired lips
But parts of it are great,it’s a beautiful house to work with

dottyp0104 Wed 23-Jan-19 21:05:48

I could live with some parts of it, theres something quirky about the odd door shapes but that fire thing! The lips... why would you 😳

petitdonkey Wed 23-Jan-19 21:06:10

NO?? Really? Well your username is perfect! WTAF!!

Dear god that is tacky AF

2cats2many Wed 23-Jan-19 21:06:29

Yeah. I'm in the monstrosity camp too. What a shame.

The bones of it are so beautiful but they have gone SO quirky for a renovation... Surely finding a buyer at that price is hard enough. I couldn't live with so many parts of it.. I hate the door shapes, I don't think they reference the building at all... (nor do I have 2.5 mil going spare so it really is no problem if I hate it!)

Well, I always say to my children 'wouldnt it be boring if we all liked the same things'! Here's the proof!

Imagine having to clean all those bathrooms/toilets!

AmIAWeed Wed 23-Jan-19 21:11:06

It's like the pinned everything they liked on Pinterest and crammed it all in. There's no flow or consistency

EmmaC78 Wed 23-Jan-19 21:14:06

I think that is the worst fireplace I have ever seen.

missyB1 Wed 23-Jan-19 21:15:26

It’s horrible totally devoid of character, cold and miserable looking.

User5trillion Wed 23-Jan-19 21:15:47

I love the fish wallpaper.

DippyAvocado Wed 23-Jan-19 21:17:05

Horrible! I can see that it would suit people who like a certain style though.

user1466690252 Wed 23-Jan-19 21:18:28

Oh god that fire 🙈 but yes like PP said, no flow or consistency I couldn’t live like that at all it would give me a headache. Which is a shame as parts of it are beautiful

I don't like the interior of either house, but omg the garden in the second one! The roses, the trellis, the greenhouse! 😍 I would live in the greenhouse (probably all I could afford anyway!)

Knitwit101 Wed 23-Jan-19 21:19:22

Apart from the weird fireplace I really like it. But I would want a proper door on the bathroom.

Zoomzoomzoomzoom0 Wed 23-Jan-19 21:19:51

Also love the fish Wall paper. Probably wouldn't go well in my greenhouse though...

SoupDragon Wed 23-Jan-19 21:22:07

There are certainly some interesting choices in that house!

I also like th fish wallpaper though.

picklemepopcorn Wed 23-Jan-19 21:22:06

I love it. The curves stop it feeling blocky, and the pocket doors give it a lovely open feel. There are a few things I'd change- the dark wood at the top. The lips. But that's easily done. The bones are there.

thewinkingprawn Wed 23-Jan-19 21:23:14

It’s a very odd renovation - there’s a lot of very personal taste in there where if you are just renovating to sell on is strange. Usually you renovate and sell a fairly blank canvas. I wonder if they renovated to live in and then had to sell.

TheCanyon Wed 23-Jan-19 21:27:31

Is it just me thats reminded of a bathroom when looking at the kitchen pic?

Waterlemon Wed 23-Jan-19 21:29:36

I think I sat an exam in there! Once upon a time 😮

It’s hideous!

AfterSchoolWorry Wed 23-Jan-19 21:33:38

Bloody hell, that's nasty. Tasteless folks have wrecked the character of the place.
