    Beautiful home, that looks to be done JUST right. Not too much, not too little, with a great eye to NOT overdoing the house, which is all too often the case, for sure. Absolutely LOVE the incredibly artistic & elegant custom iron and brass work on the staircase balustrade. So very original, and not overly formal, but with a hint of contemporary sleekness to it. And the upholstery on the dining room chars is fantastic. Lovely, totally.

  • Very nice post. I am not a big fan of the tile in the foyer, I feel like it doesn’t match the interior well. It is still an incredible home!

      I agree with you and George.

      The floor is to much. I think it would look much better if it had only small black accent squares spaced out every 2-3 feet. Maybe that is one reason this house has been for sell for years (even before the downturn in realestate)

    This house is not my style but it looks really nice, and really well done. I’m not familiar with Thomas Kirchhoff’s designs but in this house the proportions of the rooms are just perfect. The interiors spaces are large but not overly grand and the rooms look very comfortable.

    I have to disagree with others and say I don’t mind the black and white floor in the foyer. It’s a very classic design that’s been embellished with the small-diamond border. What I don’t like in that space is the carpet runner on the stairs. The busy pattern is competing with the tile floor and the result is cacophonous. The stair treads should have been left bare wood to match the dining and living room floors. If that were done (and it still could be) the entire space would feel a lot less busy. The carpet also serves to diminish the visual impact of the stairs which is not a good thing. It just has to go.

    The stair treads should not have been left wood, it creates to heavy of a wood mass on the staircase… most classic designs especially Georgian you’ll see painted treads…. I also think maybe having the tread in the white marble that is on the floor would have been a nice touch.

    The house overall is beautiful. It’s still for sale because its a builder spec that has been built many, many times in Boca with different variations to the elevations, but the same general floor plan.

    The house was originally closer to $10m… there are several versions in the price range still presently on the market. The house is now more in a realistic price range. The down turn started in 2007… the house was not on the market before the downturn.

    I have a thing for Georgian – I love its understated elegance. Nice home but the interior is not really my taste even tho it’s quite nice

    The owner has a penchant for top of the line white Mercedes-Benz’s. Every time I drive by I see at least two in the driveway.
