    Tacky. Pretty, but tacky. Love the boy on the kitchen counter. Does he come with the house?

    That is one huge house! I'd give it a C.

    Of course it does, see, he's eating berries and everything.

    I was wondering where the hip part was. Not the worst, but not homey.

    The ceiling in the dining room is really cool and i love the master bedroom. Overall, I like the house.

    I kind of like. Too big, too ostentatious, but it's more livable than a lot of these old buildings. Some of the pieces are cool, and I usually do like eclecticism, although this may go a bit far with mixing things up.

    The house looks too cold and boring. Nice fountain & fireplaces, though.

    i want the red armchair and ottoman in the first bedroom.
    the house itself is nice but not my style. i appreciate what they've done to make it a little more modern and livable looking but i would have to remove a lot more of the stuffy furniture (like those hideous dining room chairs) before it would look like a house i would want to move into.

    Stunning views and location. Other than that: ugh.

    I don't like that they mixed modern and antique looking pieces of furniture. I feel like they should have gone one way, or the other.

    In that first outside pic the house looks like an old lunatic asylum...do not likee. Stunning location though. The inside is ok I guess. The place just looks like it would have an 'evil' past.
