The layout does look very convent like though ...

It does look like they were going for the church/convent look. There's even what looks like a bible open in one of the pics. That said, it looks new enough so I don't think it is an old building that was renovated and extended.

The guy who built that was an interior designer and then became a builder.

This explains a lot. So it's a mishmash of all the pieces of ****e he's collected through the years. fair play to the journalist, Trish Dromey, for trying to make that monstrosity seem more appealing. And it's his dream home but he's feckin off to Florida coz it's warmer than Waterford? Coulda told ya that before you built it mate.

This abomination of an interior balcony thing has to be the ugliest piece of architecture Ive seen in these threads, what would possess you to ask for that?


First thing I thought when I browsed the pics of this house was for the price the shell of the house + the structure + the lands it's not bad for the price. That said, I'd almost entirely gut the interior (which wouldn't be cheap) and redo it in a more "contemporary" style.

You wouldn't need to gut the interior. €10k - €20k would have that place looking much better.

Even just taking out all the ostentatious crap would be a huge improvement.

Thanks for that Patww

The question which springs to mind about car see-thru in the living room is:

Why?

BBC piece on the new Co-Living trend in London. The journalist isn't too enamoured by them. £2,800 a month to live in one in Chelsea. That is just insanity. Would be interested in the comments from the planners.

Absolute nightmare

The living area is much better in this Norwegian Communal Living space than that one in London, much cheaper too and a similar concept with like minded people sharing a space together and collaborating on ideas.

Spoiler Alert: This is Halden Prison

Who thought those hideously ornate columns in the 'library' were a good idea?
Why are there half doors everywhere?
Why is there an exercise bike in the living room? They had so much space, just put in a gym!
Why are there no chairs at the dining table? (I count 3 against the walls)
Why are there little to no books in the 'library'?
Who would ever want a leopard print tissue box?
Why is there a tilted mirror on the bathroom ceiling?
Why are there 2 clocks in the landing?
Why does the internal joinery keep changing wood?
What is a hanging lantern smoke alarm?
Having rattan furniture in a room does not make it a conservatory. That is not a conservatory.

And finally, the front door. So much wrong. Why is it so tiny when you have a huge house? Why is there a tiny vision panel above it? Why are there urns at the front door? Why put in shutters if you can never close them because of the giant urns? Why is the welcome mat so tiny?

Hideous house. More money than style/sense.
And a gold microwave.
A gold microwave.

It depends on what you'd want from it. Personally I'd be tearing down a lot given the pics and the layout.
