I don't know. I just gave "rustic kitchen" to Google Images and it gave me that in return.

The place could be amazing, though I'm torn on the throne.

 

It's only 1400 sq ft and as near as I can tell in a bit of shitty neighbourhood which could explain the price.  I'm trying to talk my wife into with the idea of selling it down the road to kink.com.

What exactly is going on with the underground space?
post #1594 of 1897

Natural springs/dungeons. Cool spot for a party.

How about 10 of us pony up 100K each, slap a coat of paint on and open up a high-end brothel/orgytorium a la Caligula?

The trouble with that kind of place is that its a labour of love. You could buy it for $1m, sink another $300,000 into renovations and it would still only sell to the guy who wants an "Albion Castle". places like this are reasonably common in the UK because they are project-lovers dreams. Passed from one project to another and never really realising their full magnificence. The classic muscle car of the property world as far as I can see.

I wouldn't do much of anything to it. It's a not the kind of fixer-upper that really requires lots of fixing and modernizing. The home's greatest asset is its rusticity. I'd rip that boring kitchen out, but I'd do very little modernizing.


This room could use some work. That railing is junk. I might take that loft out and turn it into a large studio or library to utilize the tall ceilings. Fix the wall color.

I'd swap the concrete floor for permeable brick paving/bonsai fescue, landscape the walls with ivy, plant some groundcovers, add a couple vertical trees like Norweigan maples, add some topiary, and maybe turn that canopy area into an outdoor kitchen with a stone oven. It could be a great place for a party.

Besides that, I'd just leave it.

I'm not sure what that upper room is.  Can't be one of the bedrooms.  Kitchen would be improved with a new backsplash.

Not sure who's buying a sex series, but how about I buy it, declare a city-state and secede from the union.  HGTV might be interested in that.

All I would want is a castle and nice heating/air conditioning.

For $50K of really deft remodeling, you could turn that place into $1.25 mm or more in a few weeks. There aren't many homes at all with that kind of character and there's a never ending market of people who want homes that are distinctly unique.
post #1605 of 1897

Maybe not.  63 days on market and just dropped 100K.

 

I'll try to see it and grab some pics.
