    Default Funky Rich Lady gets a funky paint job on her home!

    Owner of 15m Kensington 'striped house' refuses to remove colour scheme saying 'it is my house and I am entitled to do what I wish' - and slams her neighbours as 'hysterical'

    • Zipporah Lisle-Mainwaring, 70, has been ordered to repaint her 15m home
    • But she is appealing against the decision and says the house will remain painted with red and white stripes
    • Denies that the paint job was motivated by revenge over planning row
    • But dubs neighbours 'hysterical' for objecting to bizarre colour scheme

    Hitting out: Zipporah Lisle-Mainwaring insists she will not change the colour of her Kensington house

    Controversy: Mrs Lisle-Mainwaring painted the 15million home in garish white and red stripes

    Original: She has been ordered to return the exterior of the house to how it used to look, pictured

    Row: Mrs Lisle-Mainwaring was accused of ordering the paint job 'to get her own back' when neighbours objected to her plans to demolish the property and rebuild it with a two-storey 'iceberg' basement

    As long as there is not any weeds or unkept shrubbery, I wouldn't give two shits. She's an old broad, give it to her.

    I think it's hilarious. Peppermint Villa. Zippy sounds like a real character. And since she's pretty dogged and nutty and worth many millions, her neighbors should probably calm down and find better ways to spend their time than obsessing over her "iceberg basement" plans...
