Well, I like the idea of the integrated bookshelf in a sofa. And I suppose the baths are quite nice. But the rest of it?? :ttth:

There’s a few weird mannequins knocking about in that house.

I hate their art. Especially the crucifix in the stairwell.

I can never imagine actually living in all that space. It's like being in a conference centre, not a home.

The downstairs hall with all the doors closed looks like the 'lobby' of a hidden object game. Click on a room!

:lol: Yes!

They either bought or inherited lots of old fashioned furniture and art and have tried to edge it out, and instead ended up squarely in the land of tack. It also looks SO new build-y, and I speak as someone who loves my new build house, but without a doubt with that amount of money I would never go for something so free of character.

That's a gorgeous house but I agree about the odd jarring note. If I had 6.5mil and enough to run the house, though :))
The hardest thing to do in this world...is to live in it.

Ugh, yes! And all the brown doors.
