    i love the exterior and the gate and the long driveway and the stone wall but the interior is a fucking mess. the wallpaper and every single piece of furniture and kitchen and banister all have to die in a fire.

    Why ruin such an elegant house with cheap and nasty 1980's furniture.

    Furniture and wallpaper are gag-worthy. I really like the kitchen for some reason, and I love the vastness of the master bedroom. I'd have to buy a lot more stuff to fill that puppy.

    It has potential. As others have said, I would also clear the inside and start again.

    I don't care about how bad the decor is I would still live there just for the locale and land alone.

    That painted bannister is unbelievable.

    I'll keep the piano and the girly bathroom, which reminds me charmingly of the powder room from a 1940s department store.

    Everything else must go, especially the dark cabinets and creepy red wall in the kitchen (which is otherwise rather cool.)

    I'd even move in as is, because this is SUCH a beautiful old house and setting. At least it hasn't been ruined with a shitload of tawdry remodels.
