    That kitchen is horrible. As is the rest of the decor.

    It's in Quebec so I'd take it in a heartbeat. I'd have to gut it and start over though.

    That kitchen is very strange.

    The layout of the bathroom is weird, and some of the decor is off, but the house itself is spacious and gorgeous. I actually thought the kitchen was charming, although again there's a weird layout. Why do you have to walk around the island to get to the stove?

    Apart from the decor I love this. It's one of those large old homes that can feel cozy because the ceilings aren't cathedral height and the room proportions aren't ridiculously huge. I'd love to have this and do my own thing with it.

    So, I've been looking for a new house recently, attending open houses and cruising the local real estate listings. I have been absolutely floored by the sheer crap that is out there...this place included. It looks great on the outside, yet, when you go in, it's a complete mess. I am looking at houses that I think are pretty expensive in my area, only to find kitchens that look like this one and bathrooms that are far less spa like. I am slowly deciding that my current home is just fine...especially when I look at these really expensive homes on here and they look terrible. And, yes, I just re-read this post and it sounds completely bitchy and uppity.

    Straight, I agree. A coworker has his $700K home up for sale. It's gorgeous from the outside but the inside is awful. It's in a very upscale neighborhood so I started looking at other houses in that area and none of them were worth that kind of money. All drywall, no woodwork. Dated kitchens with bad countertops. Yuck.

    Yeah, don't EVEN come at me with 700k if it's got drywall and no woodwork.
