"There's nothing sadder than a pub with no beer." So goes the song. Hard to believe, I know, but there is something sadder: a house on which hundreds of thosands of dollars has been lavished, and which has all the charm of an overheated glass box. And wouldn't you know it, that's just what this house is (see photo right, with a sunset to give it interest) -- 800sqm of summer house for which the sun would be an enemy.
No shade to stop the sun; no eaves to give you shade or shelter from the rain (yes Virginia, the afternoon sun in summer can be over-bearing, particularlarly through glass; yes, it does rain in Auckland) -- and devoid of delight, or character.
Shame on all involved. No wonder it's for sale, and as a consequence being talked up all over the shop.
