"But it must be worth £250k. One down the street went for £2xxk, and I've spent a lot doing mine up..."

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!


Those black floor tiles are standard on ex-LA flats, horrible looking things.

Woah!! It looks very different without the eccentric furnishings to give it an excuse to look like that... and is that a microwave in a very low spot in the kitchen?

I'm presuming if they've moved out, and the plants are still green, that they're artificial ones. I'd been so impressed that they managed to keep them all looking so well in those pots - obviously I was wrong!

The more I look, the more I see what's wrong with it - that furniture really did disguise all that was wrong with the property - there are pale pink ruched curtains with burgandy and gold swaga and tails, with yellow and pinkish walls with burgundy dado rails - and on top of that, there's the carpet, and a lot of clashing terracota brickwork! Not to mention that now it's pretty easy to tell that it's a bit of an odd place to have a fireplace... did I miss anything?

Well spotted Ianbe - that's the problem with re-listings, you can't follow the real price changes, unless alternative records are kept. Can't wait to see what it finally sells for.

It's not like you can even use the bathroom (well, the shower) particularly easily if you're not disabled...

That is very sad - disillusioned seller who has probably been told they've got a niche property, but they don't realise that there's probably not that much of a market for it either.

It really does! I was clicking on the link, thinking "well, that'll increase the value by a bit, as it'll save a job that needs doing once bought..." but actually, it's not much of an improvment. I see they haven't updated the picture of the back of the house.

The owners really like making bold colour statements don't they?!

I actually quite like that place! B) I love the kitchen and the bathroom with its funky red tiles.

Agreed, the mint green looks crap and its still green at the back of the bungalow. Repaint this and replace the blue living room and bedroom carpets and I'd be quite happy living there! :)

Unfortunately, I'm already busy then.... However, if I wasn't I would have offered to bring the mulled wine in a flask, to check out the garden room to see if it was adequate for my entertaining purposes (!)

Obviously I would be suggesting an HPC flash mob Christmas Party at their open house :D

I would have thought £210k would be on the button for that property. Its quite a large place with plenty of rooms for entertaining.

I suppose peeps who have viewed it and have offered have been putting in low-ish offers as its going to cost a heck of a lot of money to de-personalise the place and put in a proper bath in the 'shower room'.

Certainly looks like its owned by an arty type person.

Did anyone ever see that Channel 4 programme called "Selling Houses" a few years back where desparate vendors could not sell their homes because of the dated or ghastly décor? This house would certainly be a candidate.

Here's a new contender - an absolutely ma-hoosive house with a country pub interior!

Eighties- we're living in the eighties!

ex-council house

This house is nick nack central! :o In fact, both the interior AND exterior are quite bizarre for a house that was once built to home a working class family. :D
Probably bought from the council for about £10-15k around 30 years ago, the owners found themselves with more disposable income than taste so opened a loyalty account with the local garden centres. :lol:

(Please don't be too kind about the location as my folks live a few roads away! ;) ).
