    I could do without some (or all) of their color choices, but I like the house. Except for the kitchen - that's dreadful.

    Why do people paint their ceilings the same colour as the walls?

    Like the turret room, house is ok even if the kitchen looks like a sauna!

    Nice outside, inside is a horror especially the kitchen from hell.

    Great great house - amazingly terrible interior. I'd gut the whole thing. The outside is wonderful though.

    I thought the exact same thing. That kitchen is awful.

    I like the beamed ceilings but not the colours or most of the furniture. I'd keep the dining table/chairs and the fireplaces.

    The kitchen........ words fail me. It seems to be in some kind of annexe made from old pallets?

    Looks like they stuck the kitchen out on the porch or something. Really awful.
