    Default The Pagoda, London

    The owners of the Pagoda, an 18th-century house listed for sale in the village of Blackheath in Southeast London, England are entertaining offers of at least $4.54 million.

    The wall covering in the Pagoda Room was hand-painted in the Chinoiserie style.

    The only part I like is the room with the pool table. Overall too dark for my tastes.

    I like the main stairs and a lot of the wood, but I don't care for most of their furnishings.

    And a disco ball hanging from the kitchen ceiling? Really?

    I like most of it. I would get rid of a few things, but I could manage.

    I'd redecorate but I love the bones and details.

    They're living in a Pagoda so hey, why not!

    I love it. I would change a lot of the furniture--the common rooms are much too 'corporate boardroom'--but the house is unique and fun and very lovely.

    ^^I know, right? I see two very interesting windows that have been bricked up. Not cool.

    I'll take the house and toss out everything in it with the exception of the wallpaper. And I'm not usually a wallpaper kind of person but I like the ones they chose.

    Yes! The pink bedroom! And I agree, the wallpapers are unexpectedly great. The beauty of this wonderful old house totally makes that cheap staging furniture look beyond ridiculous, even disrespectful. Such amazing woodwork and windows and, and everything. Magical and uniquely lovely, I'm kinda in love with this place. *sigh*
