    This home looks like a sh*tty version of Alvin Malnik’s home in Ocean Ridge, FL, complete with the gigantic expanse of glass in back.

    I walked through this house while it was under construction. The marble on the exterior was already in place, and I didn’t like it then. The interior spaces were only framed so it was hard to tell what was what, but it was obvious that some rooms were huge. It’s interesting to see the finished interior, although I hate it. The whole thing looks like New LA Money meets Marrakesh.

    I THINK THE OUTSIDE LOOKS SIMILAR TO THE DAVID SIEGEL HOUSE, THE DAVID SEIGEL HOUSE LOOKS A LITTLE BIT BETTER THOUGH BUT BOTH ARE UGLY ON THE OUTSIDE

      yeah, it reminds of it a little bit. I hope the interior of “Versailles” won’t look like this though.

    the front is weird. the chandelier in the foyer looks WAY to small, and the foyer itself seems like there is too much going on (not a fan of that floor). the library and indoor pool look really nice. and I do really like the back of the house. overall pretty nice i’d say

    I think this is the house used in the now defunct TV show The Swan. I can recall driving by it when I lived in LA. it’s not inherently bad on the outside-it’s the use of multiple stone colors and patterns that make the palladian design seem overwrought. It’s very, how should I say, Persian Palace. The interior design and furnishings are beyond atrocious! It never ceases to amaze me how some of the very rich don’t have the sense to hire interior designers or designers that actually have taste.

    I agree with Jason. I too believe this house was used as the location of “The Swan.” I have driven by it several times, and I actually like the exterior. Granted, it is gaudy, but consider the location. The interior, however, is absolutely horrendous. I cannot believe someone would pour all this money to build this, and then furnish it with junk furniture! And the breakfast room is one of the ugliest rooms I have ever seen — the fireplace and wallpaper are grotesque.

    Garish, ugly, horrible, vomit…so many adjectives to describe this house.
    I would only pay the land value for this house minus the demo costs.
    Awful.

    I do agree. The exterior is mismatched. The rear is part historic, part modern. Can this wealthy man make up his mind?

    i worked for Steve for over 10 years. He didn’t care about fashion or design and probably let the designers just do their thing. He was happy with his dog, cigs, and a pc. Over the top yes, but he didn’t care what others thought. He died 10/11/10.

    I think I was there when you were. Didn’t you run the computer systems? I remember that an invite to Steve’s window with Artie either meant a raise or a pink slip. Was a trader for four years there, that was a tough place to work. I still have nightmares (just kidding). Good luck.
