We've all heard the phrase 'love thy neighbour.'
But one household in Worcester, Worcestershire seems to be doing the opposite.
The choice of outside decor has caused a rift with the next-door neighbours.
In fact, people all over the local area have blasted the controversial decorating style.
The home in question is blanketed in a dark grey exterior, and has a large fake lawn outside.
The £470,000 five-bedroom first gained attention after the owner applied for planning permission from Worcester City Council for an extension.
Councillor Pat Agar said: "I think a lot of us think it looks pretty ugly. I don’t think we can refuse it because we think it’s ugly, but it certainly is ugly."
Plus, another Councillor, Owen Cleary said: "I just want to go on record to say that I think it is absolutely monstrous and hideous but I’m not sure we can actually refuse it."
And it's not just the officials who have a major problem.
Retired banker Donald Symonds, 87, told MailOnline: "I wouldn't want it for myself. It's the colour that is so horrible – totally out of keeping with the area where most of the houses are light in shade.
"It looks cheap and tacky to me. I certainly wouldn't want it growing any bigger."
Lynne Jones, 67, added: "I do not find it ugly as much as weird, extending it would just add yet more students to the area.
"It is just a nightmare with students on my road. They have total disregard for the residents around here - they don't give way and they drive too fast."
While Suzanne, 36, pointed out some other problems with an extension.
"I was brought up around here and you would like to think the Council would keep things in some sort of line.
"My problem is the noise, I won't put up with it.
"If it becomes seven bed then that will get worse and I don't know where they would all park."
People of X, formerly Twitter, have also been up in arms about the home.
One laughed: "Looks like a mini Wormwood Scrubs Prison to me."
Another joked: "Looks like a Miller & Carter Steakhouse."
Another asked the pertinent question: "They couldn't find grey grass?"
While a fourth pointed out: "That's a nice little beer garden just for you and your three mates with identical haircuts."
What's your opinion of the divisive home decor?
