    I love the house and the land, the yellow room and the red room, and even the unwieldy four poster bed.

    I like most of it. Some of their paint colors and furnishings leave a lot to be desired.

    Except for the oddball paint choices, I like this place a lot. I love the pheasant tiles in the kitchen.

    The things I didn't like were the bathroom and all the borders on the walls. It reminds me of a 1980s version of a Victorian B&B or restaurant. And I don't understand the stone mantel in the wall by the wood burning stove thing. The wall colors they've chosen are pretty true to the time period I think.

    Holy fuck, I fell in love with it from the first photo. I don't care about the interior, I'd kill for that land.
