Sometimes, houses or apartments hit the market that haven't been updated in a while and they look very outdated—maybe they were fashionable at some point, but that time has long since passed. And sometimes, places—such as, for instance, this $1.3 million Victorian in Ditmas Park—hit the market looking like they might have been fashionable only in some sort of parallel dimension where people's eyes are shaped differently so that they perceive shapes and colors in a way that is completely inconceivable to us. All of that is a roundabout way of saying that this is not a very attractive foyer. Or rest of the house. "This house needs updating and is itching to be re-designed to your tastes," the brokerbabble unnecessarily suggests. It's not exactly a blank slate, but it is sort of like a slate that somebody threw up on thirty years ago and could probably be cleaned off.
