    #2! Decent location (Beverly Hills but right on Sunset) but my kind of architecture, inside and out!

    #1 is in a swamp and will probably never be completed.
    #3 is nice but I ain’t movin’ to Jersey. *If* it was Greenwich or the Hamptons, it would be my favorite.
    #4 kitsch taken to the extreme, with a less than great location…too secluded for my taste.

    #3 followed closely by #2. #4 is sort of a joke and is way to Disneyfied for my taste. #1 is a mistake that should never have happened.

    #3 definitely, New Jersey is a beautiful place but because of its bad rap from shows like Jerseylicious, Jersey Shore, and Real Housewives of New Jersey, I don’t know what my family would say if I told them I was moving there. Everyone automatically assumes people all New Jerseyites are like the ones on thosd shows, but its not true.

    #3, #2, #1, and then #4. #3 is the most realistic and liveable of the mansions. #2 is almost as liveable but overly posh and seems like it is trying too hard. #1 is over the top and will be awesome when it is finished but too much for me and almost unrealistic. #4 is last because it doesn’t seem to fit in this category of homes. Just my personal opinion. I have seen better homes get talked about less than #4.

    #2, then #3. Although Alpine is a prestigious city, it will never be able to compare with the Holmby Hills area

    The Beverly Hills masterpiece is #1 followed closely by the very tasteful Alpine mansion. The sprawling Mediterranean and Versailles America are outsize and overgrown architectural abominations designed by less than able architects and funded by less than tasteful owners.

    I would have to say 3 also but I’m not really sure about New Jersey’s reputation anymore with all that stupid reality tv crap coming out of that state nowadays……?

    Kurtz’s place. It may be the smallest, but 30,000 feet is PLENTY and its the only one with good taste. Plus I love NYC. I’d feel like flamboyant king living in the others.

    I wouldn’t pay a dime for any of them, except for MAYBE #2.

    #1 is too gargantuan (there are country clubs that are bigger, unless you have ten mistresses with six kids each or something and want to house all of them with you, if you like the design, just copy the architecture and build a much smaller version of the same home for cheaper).

    #2 has a nice marble interior to a degree, but not sure if that is my taste. I’d have to see it done up with some good interior decoration first before making my decision.

    #3 has a nice exterior, but the interior, forget it, way too bland and definitely NOT worth any $68 million. You can get homes the same square footage with far nicer and more luxury interiors than that for half the price.

    #4 nope.

    It would be difficult to choose between #2 and #3. The others I wouldn’t even consider.

    I definitely do not care for any of these house, but of the four I’d take #2 because it’s in Beverly Hills, no other reason.

    no 4! i like the architekture and the style outside.
    no 1…one word is one word too much for this s….
    no 2 and no 3 is equal

    well, this is my first impression what i remember when i saw these mansions here….i have to go back and look all the pictures to have a final decision.

    but one remark to the interior in general: for me the interior pics of a mansion are not so important as the style, architectual aspect and so on, because the interior is ALWAYS something personal, it is always a question of personal taste which you should not blame it too much

    I would say 2 and 3 are even. I think 2 is a great urban place, while 3 is a great country estate. I don’t care for the other two.

    #3 first, followed closely by #2, then 4 and 1.

    I’d say a coin flip between 2 and 3. I like the Beverly Hills location, but the house is too fancy for my tastes. The Kurtz house, on the other hand, is perfectly built, finished, and is really the only house that seems to fit in its surroundings with the expansive lawns and landscape. I realize that 4 is also surrounded by a lot of land and vegetation, but I don’t see Cambria, CA properties being worth that price. I would also like to personally drive a bulldozer through the front door of #1. And while I may not be driving it, I am pretty sure that a bulldozer (or several) will eventually level that place.

    I wasn’t actually talking about the people of New Jersey I was just kind of bringing up some stereotypes that these shows reflect towards the state of new jersey and I’m wondering what you (jersey residents) think about these shows? I wouldn’t diss the people of jersey knowing that kenny and many other readers live there its just someof the cultural aspects about the state as reflected from these shows are a little questionable and demeaning
