    Needs to be totally redone - as in entire interior torched. I like the setting though.

    House is depressing, but that last pic shows that it has some potentially awesome views.

    I like it just the way it is. Casual, unfussy, unrenovated. Charming place.

    God that kitchen is horrible. Give me enough money and I would totally redo the place.

    Obviously the previous decorator got a huge discount at the wallpaper shop - that shit is ugly, all through the house. And couldn't they have run a duster under the glass on that dresser in the bedroom before they took the photos? I like the exterior and verandah, and the views of course.

    I cannot tolerate that kitchen. It looks like a cleaned up meth lab area. I'd have to re-do just about the entire interior. It's too stark, too depressingly white with no relief of color and oozes dreariness.

    That kitchen aside, I love that house and all of its details. I think it is nice without being nice... if that makes any sense at all.

    It needs to be modernized.

    Every time I see one of these expensive, huge, international homes, I realize just how spoiled the average person is in the US. Even in our modest homes, we have more comforts than these homes. The kitchens and bathrooms are always outdated and tragic looking to me. I suppose you have to go in knowing you are paying for location only...cause the homes themselves leave much to be desired.

    Dude, it's 7 bedrooms for $1.5 million; in Houston's Afton Oaks you're looking at $1 million for a McMansion.

    I know what you mean I think, but I feel comfortable with the unostentatious quirkiness of some of these older European homes. I mean there is plenty of money over there, it's more like their values are different and I think I prefer that ultimately. Although, there's nothing wrong with an especially indulgent bathroom....

    Those kitchen cabinets are cheesy as hell, but I even kind of like the kitchen because it reminds me of an apartment kitchen in some romantic old 50's French movie. It's real vintage, not hipster retro. So primitive, yeah, but there's a charm for us sentimental types.

    That's a very Meditterranean blue, too, which isn't a bad thing.

    Anyway, I'll take it, who wants to move in too?
