    I agree that the interior is a disappointment. The outside is OK but the inside is beige and bland. I don’t understand why people who can afford a $5 million house don’t spend a little more money and hire a professional decorator. Just because they have money doesn’t mean they have the taste or talent to put their own interior together.

      A-FREAKING-MEN, Grrrowler….could NOT possibly agree with you more. Looks like they went to SEARS or ART VAN to furnish the place, and either got REAL CHEAP REAL FAST when it came time to decorate the place. HORRIBLE.

    Agree with Grrrowler. All this is is a pile of money, in the form of wood, marble, steel and glass, disguised as a house. No style, no class, just cash. I wonder if the problem in cases like this — and there are SOOOOOOOO many — is that some people believe that if they have money they also have taste. Not so. I saw a listing the other day for a $1.3+/- million house near Greenwich CT — most of the cost was location. It was a nice-sized home, had good stuff in it…and it was one of the most intriguing designs and layouts I have seen. Money wasn’t the ruling factor; taste AND even rarer — somebody THOUGHT about what they were doing. I don’t want to be overwhelmed by opulence — much less overhwelm anyone else; I want to be stimulated by thought and design and beauty.

    Odd exterior to say the least. And that living room is very odd…Two sets of windows and doors, but different sizes? Make it one big area or two equally-sized smaller ones.

    Boring & odd, all for $5 million. No thanks.

    I would not pay this much to live in South Jersey. And I agree with everyone else, terribly done interior.

    I agree with Kenny. This is contractor-grade interior design, definitely non-professional and I would rank it as embarrassment-level. Knock off at least $2 mil and sell it based on square footage alone. This one gives McMansions a bad (worse?) name. As an aside, there are some smaller, but architecturally spectacular residences, mostly in the Midwest, priced as low as $300K.

    ANNNND, the photos are ABYSMAL. I always shot my own listings when I was in real estate, and am starting up my own photography business now for agents & image consulting. It is ETERNALLY MIND-BOGGLING just HOW BAD SO MANY pics of multi-million-dollar listings are……you’d think, in THIS DAY & AGE, with the photographic technology that’s available to EVERYone, basically, that the shots would be at LEAST highly-passable…but NOPE. Unbelievable.

    The exterior says Florida, the interior says North Dakota.

    I wonder if the interior is more “staged” (as in for the sale), rather than lived in…. The only explanation for that hideous furniture is that it was rented… by someone with poor taste. In the ’80s.

      It’s definitely possible. But, at least here in Seattle, the stagers have a lot more taste than is displayed in this house. There are usually some clues to tell if a house is staged (afghan throws on sofas, orchids – either real or fake – in kitchens and bathrooms, etc). I don’t see any of those in this house.

    The exterior might suggest northern italian (although I really don’t see it) but the interior is just plain bad. The spaces are large and impersonal. There is nothing warm and inviting about it. With respect to the furnishings, they are BEYOND bad. If I was the selling agent, I would have all of the furniture stored in the garage so that people aren’t prejudiced by the incredibly tacky crap that the owners have put here. Suffice to say that its par for the course, when a homeowner spends so much on the house itself that they’ve got nothing left over to decorate the place.
