Buffalo Bills house is for sale
« on: October 05, 2020, 04:01:49 PM »
Remember Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs?

His house is for sale 
Not bad for $300k You wouldn't even get a shed for that in Dorset Uk.. I always notice houses in the US are fitted out so old fashioned ( Don't take this the wrong ways any US people here Im just saying) Generally Americans have the worst fashion tastes on the planet.. often looking like Mother dressed them..

I noticed the same with many houses over there.. old grand mother style.. skanky old furniture nothing stylish.. old 1930's carpets.. furniture that often would not be accepted in a second hand shop..chairs that look out of place, horrible kitchens , tables every thing..what is the problem over there?

I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!

Tastes in the US do differ. A lot of fixtures and fittings and house furnishings look to Europeans to be desperately old-fashioned.

Kitchen design certainly seems to have frozen in the mid eighties.

That house has a very nice old staircase in it, but that terrible wallpaper and the borders. We ditched all that about 1990.

I don’t think Siematic kitchens ever made it to the US. Every kitchen I ever saw over there always look like my grandmothers house.

But if you look at how the average person in the States dresses, badly cut jeans, dreadful shoes, white socks, baseball caps, baggy T-shirts, etc. It’s not difficult to see how they would think home decor from 1982 might be de rigueur.

Let's see how this post ages:

Trump will 100% be the President on Jan 20. History is about to be made and the World gets to see how real Americans deal with corruption.

The house is typical of the period it was built in.

In the Untied States if you are looking for something more modern look at the homes of "The Harvard Five" or F. L. Wright and his students.

I could go on but trust me you have the sheeple and the leaders who enjoy contemporary design. This holds true around the world. While few structures have been built the Russian Alex Nevroyna is quite interesting to amazing.

Last week I wanted to buy this property. Only $65000!!!
I contacted a realter and went through a very hard thinking.
The town is only 10000 people.
So, the clinic would not be profitable there.
The realtor contacted me that someone has already made an offer and the building is under inspection.
My heart is still aching...

You are pretty close to the truth.
I planned a private hospital 20-30 beds in an adjacent building.
The church itself would be remodels to a clinic and offices.

There are so many firms doing amazing designs. While I have a strong dislike for IKEA some of there designs are very good and not all dark brown furniture.

Here is a very good American architect. Tell us what you think.

You guys can buy some real houses for your money.

This is an average house in Netherlands, and its already close to 300k.

Never mind if you want a big garden or "no neighbours attached" houses. You'll easily pass half a million euro.

And a major city like amsterdam ? Double that price.


Example of Almere : https://www.funda.nl/koop/almere/huis-41024486-belter-wijdestraat-14/

Its basicly a suburb of Amsterdam.

Love it!!!

With that building in Washba the imajination can go far and beyond.
You can play with the space in many ways.... when it is available like in this property.
First thing, I would change the ceiling.
Present one is irritating me to the core.

You can buy a house in Italy for $1, but it will require investment for about 300k.
Still, not bad for Europe.

Breathtaking property indeed.
I would not buy it only because of the proximity of the railroad.

We call that stuff Mid Century Modern - and that's for a reason. It was modern 70 years ago. Not saying some of those are not lovely buildings in their own right, but the only thing modern about them is the word in the appellation!

For sure, Frank Lloyd Wright's work could not be built in Europe these days. We do too much to stop water getting in and heat getting out to make such old-fashioned buildings viable.

NS1,not quite sure where 'here' is for you with only 400 thousand people.is that your province? I am sure that a couple of them have good taste! They probably feel very lonely.

Years ago,I had a shop selling toys and gifts. I learned a lesson from my mother who had, once upon a time, owned a glass and China shop.

Her buying mode was simple: if she wanted to sell in quantity then she only chose items that offended her aesthetic standards.

I had a motto along the same lines: nobody goes broke by underestimating the taste of the British public!

It's true. Most people would not recognise high quality design if it came up and punched them on the nose! That's true everywhere. Although it seems that our colonial friends tend to abuse the privilege.

I don't think it matters so much on the house or age, any place can be made to look nice.. just they seldom seem to do it in the USA.. though I have seen some nice places in the hills of California (In the movies of course)

Myself I cant stand clutter, just like minimalist and the stuff you can pick up in Heals in London or the Conran shop .. I hate anything floral or those horrible sofa's with tassels hanging off just about every where..

Both houses in this thread were built around 1910.
Seventy years ago would be 1950.
Not a good math for a retailer.

You presented the house as a house for sale.
All furniture in the house will be gone when you walk in as an owner.
Wallpaper is the least concern and easy to change.

You can find a house like Buffalo Bill's house for 150k.
Another 150k you pay for the story behind this house.
An easy way to become a part of history of the US.
