    I don’t care for this. The front facade is a cross between Andrea Palladio and traditional Dutch architecture. It ends up resembling a church.

    the exterior is really wierd. the interior is really nice though (except for a few rooms). I overall like the house, but I can’t really see how it won any awards.

    The front entrance is a slight bit odd. But the inside is relatively nice. I would like to live there!

    I like the staircase.
    I think it would look better with a traditional light colored stucco exterior.
    Guy here in town did the same thing, took a design that was mean to be a light colored stucco design and put red brick on instead and it ended up looking terrible.

    Yeah it is kinda weird looking from the outside. I think the dark brick was used to make it look more timeless, like a mansion from the early 1900’s or something like that. 9 bedrooms seems like a lot for a 11,000 SF house–I hope they didn’t make a bunch of small rooms everywhere and ruin the flow of this place. Overall, with the land around it, pretty nice.

    Seeing that it is the only home on the tour in the 8-9 million group – I guess you could stay that it took first and last place. This home was listed in the Parade of Homes Guide Book (page 27) but was not opened to the public. Sounds a little underhanded by the builder to price it high for the show so that it is the only home in that group so they can say it took first place. I also see that they have already dropped the price by 3.1 million.
