    Exterior is very nice, can’t wait to see the finished product of the inside. The price seems kind of steep for Michigan though

    That’s beautiful. Too bad it’s in MI. It belongs on a mountain top somewhere further south like NC where I live.

    Nice interior, minus those ****HORRENDOUS**** columns in the kitchen. Outside is a bit of a miss. The cream-colored walls with the stone accents cheapen the home. Should have been all stone or all stucco with stone accents framing the walls. Seems like a nice community, but I know nothing about the area. Is this home fairly priced or is the owner/builder dreaming, and if so, how much are they dreaming by (With no knowledge of the area, I’m going to guess the home is worth $4 million tops)?

    I like the style of the outside but I don’t like the color of the stucco, nor do I care for the random “stones” in the exterior walls. To borrow a line from Daniel’s comments regarding the previous Scottsdale house, it makes it look Disneyfied.

    I really don’t like the interior at all. There are clearly a lot of details, but it’s way too frilly and grandma-ish for me, even in its unfinished state.

    it looks like a disney world set/prop house. if that aspect was toned down just a bit, it would be a very solid house.

    I love most everything about this home. There are a few too many french flourishes for my taste and I agree the columns in the kitchen do not work. the driveway hould also be finished better with either pavers,bricks or used as accents throughout. The patchy stone on the exterior of the home is not very attractive but not a deal breaker.

    I love the exterior and most of the interior also. (as Daniel said could do without the columns in the kitchen) I like the small lake in the rear.

      Ahh, no offense Marcus but……that’s a small, man-made pond in the rear…..waaaaay too small to be called any kind of lake.

        Barney you are 100% correct. I just looked at the pictures on the brokers site and it is much smaller than it looked in picture 15 above.

    I find the faux stone/stucco exterior hideous. What possibly could have possessed someone to think that it makes the house look old, or rich? It just makes it look cheap.

    The interior has some nice things about it, but on the whole, there are way too many faux panel mouldings all over the place. Again. If those touches were meant to make it look rich, or authentic french, they do neither.

    It pretends to be old money, and it doesn’t pull it off.
