One of the kitchens is a self contained one bedroom apartment included.

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?
Oh christ I have so many questions about this house!
Why are there 4 doors into the dining room?
Why are there only 3 bedrooms but 4 reception rooms? The blurb says 5 bedrooms but the plan only shows 3. Unless they're counting the 'conservatory' balcony thing as a bedroom?
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.

My bad. Totally missed the outside photo as I got bored going through many of the 70-odd photos.

Hideous house. More money than style/sense.
The ridiculous bits of shutters on the bathroom windows in pic 30 that wouldn't cover the window. Same in pic 33.
Grey skirting and white architrave around the doors? Would it not make more sense to have them the same colour? Pic 5.
Why is the corner press in the kitchen white while the rest of the kitchen is cream? Pic 18.
Kitchen island a different wood to the rest of the kitchen. Pic 19.
Chairs beside the kitchen island too high to actually sit at the island. Pic 19.
Those pedestals beside the front door look like they belong in a church. Pic 20.
For such a big expensive house, the stairs is remarkably cheap looking. Pic 21.
Very few matching doors throughout the house. Would it not be better to have the same finish throughout?
They seriously like those pendulum style clocks. They are everywhere.
The sh1te rattan chairs in the apartment. Pic 70.

Yeah, I'm not even going to talk about the bit of a balcony in pic 35.

I have to say I do like the doors in pic 21 but not in that setting.

For me it was the state if the garden and outside area. In the first photo it looks absolutly awful nearly as if nobody really bothered with it and especially the large concrete base with scattered bits of wood etc why would you show that?

Overall not my taste at all but the one thing that stood out amongst many was the gold(?) Microwave and toaster in the kitchen ....

It's where the organ is in the urinal house anyway

I'd say Mr. McMansion ran out of money.

And why you'd need a urinal when there's a toilet right beside it is beyond me.

Something not completely right with that picture. Something you also see a lot on daft where you see 2 meter wide ovens in kitchens.

Just see how high the toilet seat is compared to the rim of the urinal. It is not that high.

Let me put it this way, i am rather tall. Most kitchen sinks, toilets, bathroom sinks, office desks et cetera are just a little too low to be comfortable for me as they have been built\installed on averages.
If i have kitchens or bathrooms built for me, it would all probably be 10\15 centimeter higher than standard.

This picture annoys me for many reasons.
More than it should.

Are they crucifixes near the apex of the roof each side of the front door?

Fcuk that. I'd miss more than I'd hit. And if you were meant to p1ss in it from the step, wouldn't it be turned to actually face the step?
