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

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.

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 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
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

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.

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.

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