I honestly don’t know where to start. Room dividers, curved fireplaces, light fittings, the bar (and accessories), the cupboards, the kitchen, the bathrooms, the old TV. We could go on and on. Some of it you might want to keep, other bits less so. But there are so many original features here, a period renovation is crying out.

    Wow……OMG!!! Ever since I was a child I always imagined living there and one day owning this house….The dream never happened (barring winning the lottery–LOL!!) but all I can say is you have to see this house in person to believe it….The price is a steal as I always thought that it was a million dollar house when I was little. If wishes came true (sigh)
