Clearly, exiled descendants of deposed European royalty live here. And in a 1980s/90s bungalow. Who would have thought it? Maybe a title goes with the bung....
Be quick - this one won't hang around for long. Really?

Good God :blink: A fair few grand getting all lot that ripped out & redone in less mad colours. And that carpet is just shocking :-(

I guess some people don't realise that their own taste in decor might be totally unsaleable. Check out previous Property Ladder episodes from plenty of this, especally the two sisters doing up the Art Deco place down Brighton way. Remember all the mad Indian / flowery stuff on the walls that *all* potential buyers said they would paint over if they bought it?

I'd keep the fireplace though. Obviously not original, but it looks cool. And that lovely big conservatory is just crying out to be a huge chillout zone & ganja plantation.

The house ain't worth £265K tho - nowhere near.

Forgive me, O Lord, for I still have the horn for Krusty & La Beeny

Well personally, I think it's rather blingin' :P

Snooping around the inside of places can be interesting. I even showed rightmove to my gran once.. she wanted to see what the inside of various places near to where she lived looked like, even knew who lived in one of them.

:wacko: It's the chaises long that really tops it off. There's just so much of everything in there. I could probably live with the carpet (it certainly wouldn't show any stains - you'd never be worried about someone spilling red wine on it - it would all blend in rather nicely), if it wasn't for the swags and tails curtains.

I quite like the conservatory it's bizarrely modern in comparison- and in a kitsch way, the victoriana-esque pub bar in the corner of it adds a certain je ne sais quois...

I always wondered what Alan Patridge's house looked like...

And it's not like they've changed agents, or the price...

I guess a sale must have fallen through - never mind, it just means they'll have to live in the monstrosity they created for a little bit longer :P

The thing is, £265k isn't a winning price - it's too close to the stamp duty threshold to be worth it... I don't imagine they'll get anyone even bothering to look now till it's below £250k

Hadn't noticed before - down the bottom of the ad:

Agents Note
The vendor of this property is a relative of a member of staff at William H Brown Watton.


Now you would have thought that you'd be in a pretty good position - you should be getting the best advice and knowing that you should take the advice... wonder why they've been so stubborn over the price till now?

I'm starting to think that 2 generations live here - the older people have the rooms of the house, and the younger ones have the conservatory - there's living and dining space in both (as well as another conservatory looking at the details) so plenty of space for both sets.

This is the most bizarre house i have come across in Ipswich

http://www.rightmove...3...14&tr_t=buy

Imagine a house designed by Peter Stringfellow's favourite interior decorator, after he got blind drunk and suffered a bad acid trip, If you are after orange and brown ceilings, this is the house for you.

Owned by an unfortunate chap whose Spanish wife ran off with all his reddies.

Here's my contribution:

circa 1960s house with a 1760s interior!

More like country cottage inside than urban chic! :huh: Very ornate looking door and door frame in pic 7!

Ugh!

The lounge looks like it doubles as a hairdressers, the kitchen as some sort of catering operation and...heaven knows what sort of business the bedroom is being used for! :blink:

Somehow the grannified property with floral wallpaper, boudoir bathrooms and loud carpets doesn't seem so bad after seeing that!
