You truly can't appreciate just how awesomely bad this house is because the picture quality is so poor. I'm not sure if that's a blessing or a curse!
Blessing!

Just curious, but how did you know more info (location and price) on the houses/listings those two pics came from?
Google Image Search the images and the original listing is in the results.

edit: the pics with animals... I mean, what? Creeper Chetah and Lady Justice in the bathroom watching you ****? I've gotta take a look at the listing tomorrow when the beer wears off because got dam I have no idea what's going on there and what I am taking in looks a little fuzzy.

Google image search...should have known. I've used that tool myself for other purposes.

And it's not the beer...the pics would be fuzzy for a sober person with 20/20 vision!

For the love of ...WTF is going on in those photos?!? Is it a house? A compound? A prison? And why are there no other colors but black and white in the house?

Almost 1.2 acres in a suburb of the 4th most populous city in the country, and this is what you get? What a waste of space!

I know it's bad. But I'm just drawn to these horrendous houses. I guess better house pictures, than celebrities.

Also you can see the dog in several photos. My favorite us the bar room with the odd contraption with the glasses on the bar.

So to contrast they had fun with the paint color wheel.

So Mr Dubi and I have really boring evenings if I'm looking at ugly houses!

Why do people think yellow is a color that everyone loves. I hate it.

I hate yellow and orange. Good way to keep me from spending money is to make it yellow.

This is not the look you want in your bathroom. The rest of the house us okay, but the stripes!

Carpet in the bathroom alert! For over 500K I think that would have been included in the updating.

I am, too! Looking at real estate listings has been my hobby ever since I bought my first house (in another state) in 2004. I'm on house #3 now. Something about looking at these houses makes me appreciate my house that much more! My house isn't perfect, but it's hard to have house envy when houses like these are the alternative!

And probably my last for the evening. Kind of a bad trip to the 1980's style.

Okay I lied this one is a trip to the 1990's. I think without the green carpet it might not be awful.

I actually like red, but they did forget a few on the back right.

I don't know what's going on here but none of it is modern. That needs to be redone, inside and out. Even as a rebuild it yourself project like we're doing that's just too many square feet laid out in a way that largely doesn't make sense. Unless it's just an ideal area I wouldn't even take that one on.

I would have thought it was an ok color 15 years ago if used correctly and not overwhelming everything. Normally I can guess within a few years when a place was built but I was way off on this one. I guessed 1995 because of the windows and floorplan, repainted between 2000-2005. But built in 2007, I'm not sure what they were thinking.

Just when I think we've found the weirdest one...

We should call this the "Back to the Future House", given the 80s style combined with the pictures dated May 2017. Love "the elevator may or may not work." Who is going to volunteer to test that one out?

I don't even understand this house...it says single family, but there is no front yard, and there are cars parked all along the street in front. It almost looks like a townhouse.

And what is it about people with houses on golf courses having the absolute worst decor and wanting to ask top dollar? The ugliest /most expensive houses that go up for sale here in The Woodlands are often on golf courses. Is it really worth top dollar to have the privilege of retirees in plaid shorts in your backyard every Saturday morning and the occasional wayward golf ball smash through your window?

I think this floorplan is the one out of the most recent bunch that I could do the most with, but this bathroom layout would be a real challenge. That's a bad place for a tub and I'm not seeing a lot of options to relocate it. Even something freestanding would be tough between the two vanities.

edit: I could probably work with the green carpet one too. Some areas are hard to visualize with the giant furniture that isn't laid out very well, but that one would be pretty straightfoward to bring into this decade without making major layout or utility changes. Good size lot too.

I browse from a 'what would I do with this house' perspective. Before going into engineering I was interested in architecture and interior design, but the odds of being able to make a good living at that compared to engineering weren't good so I changed focus. On the plus side, Mrs. Fife gives me more or less free reign to do whatever I want at our place.

Same color as the french press sitting on the table I'm sitting at right now. Big in the late '90s - early 2000s when KitchenAid brought it back. The layout of that place is really bad, especially how the front rooms are done. It makes a 4,500 sq ft house look half that size.

So you mean these aren't even pictures of what the house currently looks like, but what it could look like in a year?
