For your delectation...

The lead light is lovely, but certain other decorative features tend to overwhelm -- just a little bit anyway : ;):

For $95,000! Add another $500 for a skip big enough to fit all those dolls, and you're good to go!

I like the house itself. It needs a total makeover though.
I'd get rid of all the dolls.

Imagine having to write the description for that.

They're even offering to include the crap inside with the sale.

So is the spider a toy or a resident? I’d be asking for a much lower price if it’s a resident.

I think the garden should be scanned with radar. There’s bound to be bodies.

I love picture #27. Good sense of humour by the RE agent.

I got a 27 too and it was an ad for a removalist.

One of those front verandah posts has been on the turps.


I'd love to renovate and restore a place like this.

I'm sure there must be doll fanatics out there who'd love to come and adopt those dolls.

It needs a flamethrower taken to it and then a nuke for the spider

Wow.  Give me the zombie house from last week over a house full of vintage scary dolls any day.

And the golliwogs. OM*G.

Some of the rooms have a really odd shape too.

Surely, surely, that's a fake spider? Please? And is that a corpse wrapped in plastic in pic #15?

Is it odd I fell in love? Not with the dolls, they can go but the style of the house?

And the yard 😍

No, I love it too.  Renovator's dream (otherwise known as Renovator's nightmare) were very popular back in the eighties in the cities as it meant you could get a house for land value, when there was a significant enough difference in 'finished value' and land value.

I did it with a 1918 house and I'd love to do it again without having to do all of the lath & plaster stripping, skirting board removal, waiting to have enough money to do each thing.

Saved that house from demolition though - the two underbidders were developers. Still pleased with that each time I drive past.

Two of the 'odd shape' ones are the hallway, the others would be tack-ons to the back of the house which would come off.

Wonder what's under that awful cladding on the front. Painted bricks at the back make me think it's a brick house, but no idea why you'd clad brick.

Wow I would be so stressed living in that house. The clutter everywhere.

Oh see, I thought you might want to walk down a hall way. Silly me.

Also wonder how bad the bathroom is for them to not show it.
