So I have just seen this house listed online.  I am not a fan of the decor at all.

Bit busy isn't it?

They do own the Mona Lisa though, so I guess that's something.  :lol:

Also, for no apparent reason, I now want a spiral staircase in my bedroom.

OK. So don't buy it?

Gotta have a spiral staircase in the bedroom - how else would you get to the tower?

Well exactly.

The outside is gorgeous .

The inside is very ‘Buckingham palace’ on roids !

With an indicative selling price of over $6 million I think I can forgo the spiral staircase and just make do with what I have.

Does the harp stay. It comes down to the harp for me.

First thing I think of when I see Moonee Ponds is Dame Edna Everage and I think this house would suit her character.

Yes the harp would clinch it for me at $5 mill, but not $6 mill.  Not even a harp will do it for me at 6 mill.

If they throw in the Mona Lisa that would be a steal.

Could/would you stretch to $6mill if cane with a harpist to play to wake you up every morning like a relaxing/not to aggressive alarm clock?

Nah.  My cats wake me up before any alarm anyway.

That’s halfway between a blue mountains RSL club and the lavatories in the Sistine Chapel.

Turn down the decor and I could learn to live it it :shrug:

The outside doesn't match the inside in any way, shape or form.

The inside is my personal idea of what hell looks like.  Obviously excluding the harp.

I couldn't live in that house. I wear glasses for depth perception but rarely wear them at home because my spatial awareness at home is good. Man would those tiles/walls/decor/everything mess with my eyesight. I'd destroy everything with one clumsy walk to the bathroom.

Also, I just don't get decorative plates. Why? At what point did someone go "Let's take this functional eating utensil, paint something on it and put it in  cabinet to look at and never eat off it"?

Me too! 🤣 I would have so much fun dancing from room to room in my silk robe, spilling my cocktails as I went. I wouldn’t care that nobody wanted to visit me. I could get SO MANY cats in that house. But I probably just need one really judgemental cat there.

Just don't get a torti, it will blend in too well.

I was just saying ten minutes ago, if I'd known we were going to have a pure grey cat (he's a Korat) I'd not have bought grey furniture.

I love houses where they really commit to a theme. There's so much blandness about, I love these places. )I want a house big enough for a harp and the harp.too!)

That is a beautiful house that has just had a bit of bad plastic surgery.

Take away the wallpaper, paint effects, furniture, curtains etc and you have amazing bones. The ceilings, especially if original, are amazing. Paint them all plain cream so you can actually see them and they would be so beautiful.

The floors are the problem - all that tiling that probably went over or replaced the original floor boards would be so expensive and horrific to remove and replace.

But, different strokes for different folks - I kind of like that people can deviate from the super boring stuff you usually see. It'll be a perfect fit for someone, and they'll live happily in their quirky home.
