Winning! With the old Porsche, it reminds me of some of the bachelor pads that Playboy magazine featured in the 1960's and 70s.

OK, so we're selling as it is, because of the baby who's expected in a couple of weeks. We never got around to installing a new kitchen, so we'll sell it with the old, crappy one that was there when we moved in. Oteherwise, all the walls were just plastered and painted again, and the bathroom is three-four years old. We decided to leave the floors as they were, we've just scrubbed them brutally, which I think left a nice patina, although many people would want the...
On TV yesterday (27 mins and 10 secs in): http://www.tv3play.no/play/244906/?autostart=true It's one of those shows where people who are badly in debt seek help; I'm valuating the guy's watches.

You have to live with a slightly comical surname for a few decades to really understand..it gets old.
Thanks! I've been lurking occasionally for the past couple of years, but I got busy with work and married life etc., - I'll be posting occasionally, I hope...good to see that this place is much the same.
Oh, and that interior is just insanely pretentious and vulgar. The space minus the decorating looks very nice, with the double height etc. If that place just landed in my lap, I'd get rid of the books, tear out all that fake Georgian/mock Tudor shelving out, and maybe keep tha shelving minus all the tacky bells and whistles. Strip the shelves of the stupid mouldings and paint them white. If I had the money for that place, I would have little trouble filling the shelves...
