Just stumbled across this one in completed listings and wondered if anyone here bought it and if so what they made of it? It looks as if it has a bit of age from the photos but you can never be sure without seeing something in person. Interesting house though.

It is rather magnificent, isn't it? But rather gloomy too. Though it could look interesting with lots of high-end antique furnishings and plenty of those scarily expensive Erhard & Söhne gilt bits and pieces...

Yes it could make an interesting project. Not sure about the dark colours almost looks as if it has been stained to look older than it is. A strange one. If you could have seen the interior it would have given a better sense of the house. Not sure I would have bid on it but it could be dressed up as an old house to look interesting.

It looked rather as if it had been painted to fit into some planned colour scheme. Too gloomy for me!
