    I love the extrerior and the porch, but I'm really not digging the arch in the kitchen. It's not decorated that great, but the inside's very workable.

    Yes please - minus most of the furnishings. My stuff would look awesome in here. Love the overall space.

    That bathtub looks nasty as hell. Id take it if I could re-do the bathrooms, and change out a majority of the furnishings.

    I like the space overall, it's very neutral, and like somebody above said - its workable.

    I would ditch that bathtub though, they probably were going for a rustic look, but that thing just looks rust-y.

    The outside of the house is really nice.

    I love this house except for the bathroom tile, sink, and tub and it looks like it was furnished by an old lady. This is my favorite house style. Unfortunately, very uncommon in my area. Most of them are downtown on teeny little lots, and they are still $500K and up. I am always on the lookout for land around here that we can build something like this on.

    I like the space but most of the furniture can get dumped. The bath and the iron bedframe have me itching to treat and paint them properly, although the owners no doubt paid a ridiculous price for stuff that looks like it was hauled from a derelict building.

    Haha! The furniture is arts & craft-ish, I see a mismatch of old styles thrown together. The house itself is.... well, it's just not arts & craft.
    The only thing I do like is the arch.

    I didn't like that at all - why does it sit so low from the ceiling?

    The shower is weird, seems claustrophobic. I love the outside of the house.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.
