"What?" you're thinking. "So it's cluttered and fussy and I'm glad I don't have to dust it, but what's so off about this listing Mid-C Frank found?"Keep looking. Keeeep looking....
Besides the dog/person portrait above the fireplace?
Yess ! I found my new home... :)
that reminds me of those scooby doo cartoons where the creepy portrait always followed them with its eyes...
Well THAT almost caused an unfortunate tea-keyboard interaction. Nice suit.
I guess great great grandpa had a real pedigree---AKC that is!!!
I read your blog every day and laugh out loud more often than not, though I don't think I've ever commented before now. This was too funny to not say something, though. I LOVE IT! At least they have a sense of humor, you have to give them that!
Wouldn't have expected anyone who could choose such furnishings to have a sense of the ridiculous, would you? Maybe their ancestors really were...? Gave me a chortle opportunity, anyway, so thank you!
the portrait of Sir Poops a Lot over the mantle is a nice touch.
I would want it ONLY for the painting. That is great.
it's a millionaire dog's paradise!
I can't decide if it's the comedy dog portrait over the fire or what appears to be a very small lady in front of the firplace.Put me out of my misery please
AAAHHH! Dog Man! Dog Man! Over fireplace! AAAHHH! Run!
Is it the dog in a suit portrait or the 3' ghosts?
For $32 mil, can I keep the painitng of Uncle Scruffy?
flat stanley in the fireplace? Or stanley-etta? Dog face over the fire? Are you sure this isn't the house from Clue?
I don't see Dogs Playing Poker. Now that's class!
Hooray! My first "It's Lovely" post! I'm thrilled and honored.Several at work were impressed by the beds -- as the saying goes, "Money can't buy taste" -- but it can buy a LOT of pillows!
Aaaagh, there are more flat dogs and people! There's a dog pillow on the sofa, and I think the picture in the top of the bookcase might be a dog. And then in the foyer, there's another short, flat person.
Eek! Isn't that the dog from the backyard - the giant one peeking through the double glass doors?
If I had the cash, I'd buy this in a heartbeat, doggie portrait and all. Especially the doggie portrait. That's awesome.
Its almost as if the entire interior of the house exists just to set up the dog portrait.This home is brilliant!
No - the way scarier thing is the pygmy-high-society lady standing behind the chair, pushing it in.Like what, does the house come with a magical maid from the days of yore? Or did someone make some kind of renaissance quarter-size cardboard cutout person?
To quote Lord Flashheart, "WOOF!"
It looks like a room in a dollhouse
Please tell me that the ornate vases with lids on the mantel are just that; vases. They aren't urns, right? Right. Absolutely right. No way are those urns. Please, God.
WHO'S A GOOD BOY?!!!!!
Did anyone else notice that they blurred out the faces of the people in the photos on the front table in picture two?Didn't want anyone to know who was related to Sir Woofsalot?
I enjoy classy decor, but it appears these people were on the way to classy and then became very, very lost. And then some.
I can't even comment, it's too odd. and besides, everyone above has said it already. how very very odd.
the first thing i noticed was the creepy little woman....then the creepy little man in the hall.. the dog portrait was just icing on the cake...
I guess I am the exception here but I LOVE it, doggie portrait and all. I have seen such oil paintings and think they are whimsical and fun. Now I need to go and count the change in our coin jar...think I could swing the down payment?
The plate above the large hutch in the breakfast room is NOT centered! UHG! I hate when that happens!No class at all!IPA
Clearly this is the house where Emily from Bagpuss now lives. What I think is wrong is that Madeleine Remnant is living there, but where are the mice, Gabriel Croaker and Professor Yaffle? And where for the love of God is that old, saggy cloth cat Bagpuss? I hope it has nothing to do with Sir Woofsalot.
Its the coffee table. I'm sure. Its photoshopped
Am I the only one who wished the portrait in the second had the horse riding the human? It would suit the animal-centered decore much better :)
LOL you guys have said it...but I have to add there's something awfully Photoshoppy about this picture - maybe it's the way the perspective made me squint when I looked at the big size. Also, the tiny 18th century maid was a clue.
It's only 32 Mil? At that cheap price I'm sure it won't come furnished. They'll probably take the drapes down too. Bummer.It looks like the doggie version of Mario Buatto (The Prince of Chintz) designed the place. But, I could roll with the funhouse effect. :)
what, no photo of the french country kitchen with the leaded glass windows? i'm taking my $32m elsewhere.
Reminds me of a 'Mystery Case Files' game - there's the Dog, the Victorian Woman......
What gets me about this place is that for $32 million it's not even a brownstone -- it's a coop apartment with more than $8000/month in maintenance. Probably a pretty nice building, with parking and a doorman and thick walls and all, but still if you had a spare $32 million a brownstone on the East Side would be much, much nicer.
I am horrified by those awful brown spots...are those roaches?! Moths?!They are horribly creepy, and if they are bugs, this place needs some hardcore fumigation.
What's so off is that it costs over 30 million dollars and if you buy it, you'll have to share your home with a creepy midget in front of the fireplace.
