I leave that to you and your tendency to go a little wild with decor. Because this one DOES. And I'm digging it. It comes with everything you see!

I live in the area and we've all been tearing our hair out a little. Prevailing theory is goblin infestation. Based solely on that dining room picture from the remax posting….it is obviously goblin infestation. Wow, that basement look like a heck of a venue for karaoke night! This one is sold; if you like to do a similar post get the pictures before it's taken offline: https://www.funda.nl/koop/verkocht/huissen/huis-49680334-huismanstraat-27/ Oh WOW, thank you, Noor!

(Please … "R", "M", and "N" monogrammed dish towels?? As in Richard Milhous Nixon??) The lauan paneling … the clanging orange/green/blue/yellow wall and ceiling treatments … it's every Boomer's childhood nightmare of their grandparents' attempt at remodeling/modernization.
