    Finally we have a listing with larger, bigger quality pics. I would have to say that this is one gorgeous home. It looks warm & inviting. The only thing I would change is I would have to have the cabinets refinished in the Master Bath. I don’t like that color. Also the tile backsplash in the wine room doesn’t do anything for me, but I could probably live with it since the room isn’t used that much. I realy like the outdoor room with the kitchen. Good home, great price.

    Outside is extremely awkward looking. From the wooden Tudor elements on the second floor to the gigantic window on the right hand side and the odd fireplace on the front facade; it really looks like a jumbled mess in my opinion. The back yard really is suffering from the close vicinity of more than 1 neighbor and that terrible power-pole.

    The odd details continue inside. Photo 3 (Living room?) is terrible…so dark and the window makes it look like your peering out of a cave. Kitchen seems like it had an imaginary line it couldn’t cross into. The dining room and office/library are nice.

    So if you all had a choice between this or the house in The Sanctuary, which would you choose, considering location?

    The exterior is cold and uninviting.That’s a very bad stsart…

    The interior lack in attention to details: The right proportions in this house are missing.An architect with a sense of balance, proportion, symmetry and harmony
    would do much better work…

    This one is a shame. House looks reasonably nice, but the location is rubbish. (Like Daniel said)
    Yes I could live there happily with those neighbours, but NOT for 3.5 million. For that price I want a bigger or better house, or more privacy.

    And Kenny, the phrase “English Country”, did you get that somewhere or did you come up with it? Because I don’t see anything “English Country” in this one. Maybe that bit on the left but that still doesn’t make this one English Country. I actually like the exterior, only that right window should have been designed better.

    So, kinda nice house, but not for this price.

    I have to agree with all the previous comments. The outside IS made up of traditional English architectural elements, but they don’t fit together. The rear facade looks unfinished compared to the front. It’s as if the builder ran out of stone. I like the large oaks in the the front yard, and the sago palm by the street is nice. I just realized I’m reduced to complimenting a plant in front of this house; that’s a bad sign!

    The interior has some nice individual elements, but overall I don’t like it. If it were truly English country it would look very different on the inside. The library is nice but I don’t like the floor.

    I’m not a fan of the neighborhood, although there are some beautiful houses. It’s too bad that the other houses are so close, but that’s typical for this neighborhood. In this area, I personally wouldn’t want to live west of the 610 loop and could easily find a nicer house on a bigger lot in River Oaks.

    Maybe it should be called traditional Texan. I personally love this home very charming and friendly looking. I lived in San Antonio near Alamo Heights and much of the neighborhoods have this close old money feel about them.

    TEXTBOOK PSYCHOTIC regarding the INSANE PRICE for the MICROSCOPIC LOT.

    The backyard & surrounding neighbors homes/garages LOOK LIKE SOMETHING FROM A BUNGALOW in Detroit from 1955. Forget EVERYthing about the house…..it’s rendered utter rubbish due to the insulting lot size.
