    It's cute. The mural behind the kitchen table is different, but freaks me out a bit.

    The front entrance reminds me of the house, "Drogheda" from The Thornbirds.

    The two people in the forefront of the mural look like they're actually sitting at the kitchen table.

    I like the narrow brick wall with the fireplace but hate the coffee table. I know stuff would be falling through those gaps all the time.

    I don't see a stove or oven in the kitchen, they're out of range, but the primitive look is cute.

    I like the back garden and the kangaroo sign. The front is quaint in a charming way.

    Love the house, hate what they've done with it. That should be my signature, it would save me typing it out in every thread. I need an emoji.

    This is a very typical Aussie house, seen mostly in country towns these days but the cities still have a few. I love the classic tin roof, "Bullnose" curved verandah roof, wrought iron lacework and symmetry. The interior is pretty sympathetically done and I really like the traditional planked walls in the kitchen. I'd love to have the same thing in my place. The recycled pallet coffee table is cheap and nasty.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    It was a surprise for me to see it, because it looks nothing like the Victorian homes in the U.S. This is more typical of what we've got.

    I would find more attractive people if I had to stare at them every day while I eat. Yes, I'm in a shallow mood. Judge away.

    I thought it was the Twilight Zone pigman for a minute on that mural. Neat effect, but I'm not sure I'd like to stare at it everyday.

    I like the little door on the side.

    "Victorian" is what we call anything pre-Federation (1901). Most of the houses in my area are 1880s onward and from single storey cottages (like mine) all the way up to grand mansions, if they're pre-1901 they're all Victorian.
