    The outside looks a bit weird, but actually I love the inside! Probably because of all the natural light inside.

    I rather like it-I am glad to see they have curtains in the bedroom.

    depends on the climate there I guess but I instantly think - hard to keep warm in winter and hard to keep cool in summer.

    The furniture sucks and I could do without the glass dome contstructions
    above the hallways/corridors but overall it's nice. The outside is fantastic
    as are the views.

    I like the inside outside takes some getting used to, but overall nice.

    I think they get quite a bit of snow,cool summers. That dome thingy could look lovely with snow & let in what weak sun there was.

    no.
    i like the velvet sofas but everything else would have to go, especially the curly chairs.
    the house itself has potential though.
