I...almost like it. Not most of the fixtures, or the astounding stadium views, or how dark it probably looks during a Minnesota winter, but the wood floors and most of the ceilings are gorgeous.

That was my reaction.  It would be fun to fix up!  Also, I didn't notice until I'd looked through the photos it's "only" 4500 sf.

There is a cute house that I like to drive past. It went up for sale a while ago, and I check on it's listings from time to time. This is how the house used to look before it was restaged, the dated wall paper removed & a little bit of decluttering was done:

See this desk nook next to a staircase ?

They added a toilet next to the staircase  :o Zero privacy! You have to walk past the toilet to get to the upstairs bedrooms:

Were I looking for a house in that area, the addition of the loo would reduce what I would be willing to offer for that place...

I can't imagine most people being happy with that, and I would be mentally working out how much it would cost to put 'right' - including replacing all the flooring/panelling on that landing, as there may be changes from having a wc there. :o

And the house is only available to be shown on sunny days.

You've got to wonder why, right? What lurks in the shadows of this house? Do the Vashta Narada come out when the light is dim?
Thumbs up on that comment!

I can't imagine why anyone would add a toilet like that.  Who would want to use it??   I would feel uncomfortable using it even if I were alone in the house, but that's just me.

It's like the kind of house where the "master bedroom" is an open loft.  Yeah, very practical.  ZERO privacy.  Do people who design or renovate houses ever think about how rooms are going to be used?  Sheesh.

I like the idea of a chalet style home for our next one, and with wrap around windows for the ground floor. However, privacy can be an issue for bedrooms and bathrooms and I haven't quite figured out how to make all that work.

I love the wrap around porch and all the windows. The open view toilet, not so much  :o . Unless you put in a few walls and a door.

It doesn’t seem like it would be hard to enclose that bathroom, though it makes you wonder why they wouldn’t do it when they put in the fixtures. Bizarre.

Looks like a nice house from the outside, but if the paneling didn’t turn me off, then the overly foo-foo wallpaper and that bathroom would.

I can't figure that out.  There's part of a door jamb visible in the toilet pic (left edge) so there could be a door that would close off the hallway, but the half wall on the right edge of the photo suggests it's completely open to another room.

All the wood paneling, yikes.

There is one door between the hallway / sitting room & the toilet (I haven't figured out what the second grated door is for). Not very practical, though, if you're in the middle of using the bathroom & someone wants to leave the other rooms.  :P

I like this condo although I think it needs another bathroom. I just can't get over the laundry in the living room.

I don't like the faux broken glass in various rooms.

I am actually drooling over the models and parts in the automotive section.  I couldn't even walk into the house to get them  - too many weeping angels.

Never before have I seen a crocheted ceiling.
