The Unique Decor In The 'Best House On Rightmove' Is Dividing People

Taste is subjective. Some people think marzipan completes a cake, others think it is the spawn of the devil. Some people think Ed Sheeran is one of the finest singer-songwriters of his generation, others think he epitomises the mediocrity of modern day music. And some people think this property in Birmingham is the best house on Rightmove, and others think it looks like some kind of ornament-based prison.

The house in question, is a five-bedroom semi-detached located in (the some would say appropriately named) Rotten Park Road.

The three-storey property is on the market for £350,000, which represents a steal in the eyes of one woman, who made the bold claim that it is the 'best house on Rightmove'.

After a quick flick through the pictures, it should be plain to see why this is such a controversial claim. Every room is packed out with sparkly ornaments - the kind that most people wouldn't even be happy to have in their garden. Indeed, one room just has a massive tiger statue plonked in the middle, which seems unnecessary.

The advert for the property says the current owner has spent 30 years 'improving' the house to give it this 'unique' look... Though you can't help but feel massive tiger ornaments and the like probably narrow your field of potential buyers when it comes to selling on.

Reaction to the listing online reflects the divisive nature of the house's decor.

One person said: "Oh my God it's amazing."

Another commented: "That is quite something."

While a third said: "I kind of love it, but I'd need a blindfold to go to sleep. Some of those statues would give me nightmares."

The online description states: "The property, built around 1910, is an immaculately presented three storey property with three large reception rooms, four double bedrooms and has the benefit of an open plan living area with ensuite on the top floor.

"Over the last thirty years the current vendor has hand painted and improved this family home to create a unique property. To the front of the property there is a gated block paved driveway with space for two motor vehicles.

"There is an impressive rear garden which can be accessed via a door from the kitchen, this leads onto a paved patio area which has been covered with a conservatory style roof and has the benefit of a generous lean to at the side of the property.

"Steps then lead down to the lawn area which has a boarder of evergreen trees bounded by flower beds and a selection of bushes and small trees."

Yeah, think I'd be spending most of my time in the garden.
