    I don't care about the furniture, fixtures, or art, I just want the house and land.

    The exterior is lovely but I would totally redo the inside. The bedroom does look rather comfy though.

    I would get rid of most of the furniture, but I'd be happy just living in the sun room alone. I love the door in the 10th picture and that last one is so beautiful too.

    Love the structure. Why is there a portrait of Lenin on the wall?

    It's very nice. The stone floors look so cold though!

    I guess they couldn't be bothered with painting the dirty looking, chipped trim work before they put it on the market? I don't think it adds period interest, it just looks dirty. At least scrub the dirt off the doors.

    Sheesh, the furniture and art are so uninspired! This lovely home deserves better. As soon as I win the lottery...

    I'd be skipping barefoot on the stone floors and the grounds singing "This is MY house! This is MY house"!

    My first thought, too! It needs some fine rugs.

    Yes ma'am! I'd even keep the Lenin portrait and the ugly tartan love seat for those windows. Great house!
