    The bathroom shown is huge and looks like it would be difficult to keep clean..not like a bathroom at all, but with bathroom fixtures just plopped into a regular room. Maintenance problems seem unavoidable unless you cleaned lt constantly after every use. The big open size of the bathroom is nice though.

    I like the orange brickwork around the windows and doors and the blue roof trim-gives it a little color on the outside.

    I would have that bathroom a watery mess in no time flat.

    There's a lot going on, but it's not overpowering (to me). The bathroom is very insteresting.

    I would buy that place in a second if I could. I love it.

    i love the size of the bathroom but the whole interior needs to be redone. the outside is lovely, though it needs less concrete around it. it looks like someone built a parking lot right outside.

    It's lovely. It has a B & B feel to it. I could not live there, but a long weekend would be great. I love that gigantic armoire in the bedroom.

    It's the kind of charming and lovely place where I'd like to spend some vacations, but I couldn't live there.

    It's captivating, but the wallpapers drive me nuts. I used to like wallpaper when I was younger, but now it all seems busy and distracting.

    Otherwise, I just love the house in general.
