A House With Great Potential, Despite Unfortunate Wall Murals and Other Interior Shenanigans

It’s being marketed as “a stately twin home [that] will give you the feeling of living in a European Bed & Breakfast Hotel!” I suppose everyone has a different definition of “stately,” but this certainly does have B&B-style potential if someone is willing to invest the right kind of elbow grease.

The listing mentions the house’s rear patio, yard and pool, but neglects to comment on the mural. That thing has to be either painted over or radically changed. Does the Mural Arts Program ever do residential work?

    What is up with the ceiling? Is it sloping, convex? Concaving in?
