    yes, please. their furniture and that nasty wood-panelled office have to go but i absolutely love how they restored the ruin without transforming the exterior. love.
    i'll keep the dog too.
    and the setting, omg it's so gorgeous. i want to spend months in that house being a total hermit and taking walks along that gorgeous coastline.

    Yes, please. Really like this one. Beautiful views and lots of solitude.

    I love it. The office does remind me of those study rooms in my college dorm - a large closet.
    Silence may be golden but, duct tape is cheaper.

    The house is great, but I find their furnishings a bit pedestrian, fir example that bed looks like it's from Ercol...

    I love how they merged the old with the new but that pokey office looks like a closet. I really love the way they make that big crack a feature, especially when it's all lit up at night.
    How can you trust anything that bleeds for 3 days every month but doesn't die?

    as i read the thread title, i was like "oh yeah, this sounds sweet". LOVED the location. loved the exterior. then, i literally cringed when i got to their furniture. it's bad, really awful. take it all out. but the house is incredible.

    I love it. It does look a bit isolated though.
