    The inside is a complete gut job, but my god, location, location, location. Fabulous setting.

    Lord, the views! The flowers & greenery- I could easily deal with the rest.

    I like it as most of you do, but...

    ..Montenegro? nice views and all, but not my ideal location. Maybe along the Cali coast or the south of France or something like that. Just not sure Montenegro would be my ideal location. Maybe Puerto Rico or St. Thomas or something as well-being all stone it would weather hurricanes well.

    And who cares about the furniture colors?-if the bones inside are good, then if you could afford this, you could afford to make over the interior any way you wanted.

    And the immediate landscaping/gardens would HAVE to come with it.

    See where that car is parked? Ha! if that were my parking space I can guarantee I would have that car in the damn water within six months.

    Yeeeaaahhh, you couldn't pay me enough money to live that close to the water, but the view is so stunning! And the structure of the house is fucking gorgeous, but you guys are right, the inside needs a major overhaul. I'd keep all the stone and as much original wood as I could, though, and maybe some of the tile in the kitchen. And then I'd build a giant fucking stone/steel/whatever fence around it to keep it from falling into the sea.

    Hell, I'd sleep on an air mattress with no other furniture simply based on location and view.

    au contraire. the south of france has been overrun with people but montenegro is gorgeous and hasn't been ruined by tourists yet. i've been there twice and if i had cash to buy a beach house, i'd rather croatia or montenegro than italy or france.

    as for the house, great location but the inside sucks balls. they really fucked up the renovation.
