wow, words couldn’t describe this house. Wow the basement must be a dungeon and the facade resembles - actually I don’t even know what.

Sometimes I question the Planning system in the country. Yes grant planning but at least make the building habitable and if the design is pretty different at least make it look semi-modern.

:laughing:
Yes, it’s frustrating - they could have designed something cool and they went and put the living room in the basement (along with the scary dungeon rooms :open_mouth: ) and did that to the facade. The brick, stone edging and roof are an attempt to reflect the surrounding architecture I’m sure but they just don’t work!
:sick:

Edited to add one positive note - the timber cladding on the side of the car hole is nice.
