The thing that scares me most is the full length window right next to the toilet...I'm hoping that is one-way glass....

See in the bathroom how the netting curtain is tied in a knot.. What is that for exactly? I see it a lot around here, and always wondered why they tie a massive knot in them.. It looks odd..

Honest question..

antigone yes your links are more my style.

The knot appears to to keep it out of the way of the pet door below.

Lovely house, kinda creepy interior but nothing you could not work with.

What surprised me more was that a 4-5 bedroom house of that size was only going for approx $450k!!

Meh...yeah, the decorator items are a little crazy but once they are gone it's a pretty boring place. I thought there was going to be some painted walls or patterned tiles or something original.gif

I agree.  The lack of back yard would be my biggest concern. Then I would get rid of those tacky curtains!

It is located a little out of Adelaide that is why the price seems low. I get that the interior can be worked with. I always find it interesting that people have such varied tastes and I honestly do not mean that rudely.

Yup that is a bit in your face when you walk in.  I think my nephew would have a freak out.  I also don't think I would be able to walk inbetween that island bench and the fridge in about 14 weeks when I am 8 months pregnant it looks like a tiny space.

The net curtains are everywhere, Andrew Winter would have a ball with all his net curtain comments.

Do real estate agents check their listing? How do they let 45 bedrooms stay up there? Do the clients even check the page?

It is over priced for that area, on a good day it would be over an hour and half to the CBD of Adelaide. It is not even in the Barossa for an extra 10 minute drive you would live further out and be in the Barossa with the nice wineries and restaurants. For that price you could also get a 4 bedroom house closer to Adelaide.

How the hell do they open the fridge?

I was expecting a "naughty" parlour.  With flogs and handcuffs in a glassfront cabinet.

Very disappointed OP, your title mislead me!

Honest question..

I used to knot long net curtains in a rental I lived in. It stopped the curtains from blowing around in the wind if the window was open. The knotted curtain still flapped back and forward but didn't swirl madly around in all directions like it would when not knotted.

Sorry Soprano-cat, promise if I ever find anything raunchy house wise will post. Your mind is naughty lol.

The King Kong in the entrance is a bit much but otherwise I think it's just boring rather than awful.
