    beautiful house. i'd change some of the stuffier armchairs, sofas and chairs, and that horrendous four-poster bed and those ridiculous plant things in the entrance foyer but the dude's got a beautiful art collection and some gorgeous pieces and the house itself is beautiful.

    I like it too; I especially love the window seat. Always wanted one.

    I love the house but would change a lot of the furniture. I'll keep the dogs though!!

    I have a feeling they ripped out a lot of the original features, mouldings, cornices, etc. I like the floors, especially the diagonal boards in the hallway. Hate the furniture and the paintjob is way too bright white.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Too much wood paneling, but otherwise a nice apartment.
    Would refurnish, though.
