Still a no from me. Pets on worktops absolute no no. Noise, smells and lack of privacy. How can one relax in these giant boxes? I also like older properties with quirky spaces

Just returned from a Christmas stay in a beautiful cottage in Cornwall. Lovely decor + open plan living. Discovered another negative re open plan- sitting quietly sipping our festive evening drinks somewhat discombobulating to hear loud gurgling noises emanating appliances in the kitchen area! Reminiscent of an elderly relation with indigestion.
