One disgruntled Londoner has come up with a diabolical way of taking revenge on neighbors who opposed redevelopment works on her multimillion-dollar townhouse. She’s turned it into a garish local eyesore by painting it red and white.

The candy-striped three-story house can be found on a quiet street in Kensington, one of London’s wealthiest districts, reports the Guardian.

The owner gave her house the makeover after neighbors objected to plans to demolish the building and replace it with a five-story home, including a two-story basement.

Neighbors are appalled with the paint job, calling it “hideous” and “an eyesore.”

“I don’t think it belongs here. It kind of glows in the evening. It’s fluorescent. And the half-finished stripe is driving me mad,” 19-year-old Saskia Moyle, who lives across the road from the house, told the Guardian.

Maybe they’ll let her demolish it after all.
