    I love this. Anything I don't like can be easily tossed.

    I love Georgian architecture and could move in as is but that nasty lean-to cheapo conservatory eyesore has to be torn down and replaced with a proper one.

    I like this quite a bit. I need some dark green walls.

    I could totally redo the inside and be in love with this place. I love the sun room!

    That is the oddest kitchen, but I think I could make do.

    I love it but I would only buy it if the dog comes with the house.

    Love it, too. They managed to make it fresh and lively.

    I think the main thing I really wanted to change was the movie poster collage in the red room.

    Whats wrong with it? It has the aga(centre) and the original stove (black, to the left).
    The wiring is raised & in conduit, but that is actually fairly usual in old houses that were built prior to electricity as they only tend to counter-sink it once they re-wire it, but it's not always possible depending on the wall materials.

    I (obviously) love it, but I was brought up in something similar (excepting the horrible 70s "conservatory" ). I love the proportions of Georgian buildings.

    I did wonder for a moment if it was DDL's because of that.
