    The color scheme in that place is scary.

    The furniture and colors are horrendous, including the exterior color. Looks like the entrance to the funhouse it is. I do like the kitchen, minus the stylin' spray cleaner bottles on the counter.

    i wonder if it's actually on the lake? the price makes me think that it's not because a house that size on the shore would cost more. and they would probably include a picture showing the lake.

    either way, the exterior needs a new paint colour and the interior needs to be burned and redone entirely.

    Don't dig the dark (oak?) kitchen either.

    HATE the kitchen and the rest would induce seizures.

    There is something horribly 'Disney-esque' about it-like it was designed to be only 3/4ths of real size(like in Disneyland)..it makes it claustrophobic feeling even with the white ceilings... It is almost like a Disney version of what a nice house on a Swiss Lake would be like-which of course makes it hell on
    Earth!
