        We didn’t and I emailed them and they never got back to me. It was the worst thing.

            If I ever hear from them before December 20th when the tour ends I’ll be sure to let you know. I’d heard that this guy had the same problem I had so I don’t know what’s up with their tour schedule.

    The pictures are definitely better quality than before, plus having more of them is a bonus. The house really isn’t bad. It could pass for a modern English country house in terms of style and decor. Whoever staged it did a pretty good job. It looks elegant and comfortable at the same time; that’s not easy to do. I was about to say that I wasn’t fond of the red-walled office, until I realized it was a hair salon. I do appreciate that the billiard room is a separate room and that the pool table isn’t stuck in the middle of a larger play area. I hate the powder room urinal.

    Unrelated to this house: when, oh when, can we end the ridiculous trend of parking a higher-end car in front of a house when the listing photos are taken? It’s silly, and somewhat tacky IMO. We get it that the home represents a life of luxury, blah blah blah. Obviously anyone who can afford a $10,000,000 house can afford at least one nice car, plus lots of other nice things. No need to point that out. I don’t care what type of car(s) the current owner has.

      I think this may be a case where someone was just too lazy or couldn’t be bothered to move the car. I don’t think a Mercedes E-Class would qualify as a high-end car, certainly not one worthy enough to be placed in front of a home at this price range (I drive an E-Class…they are seriously like the Toyota Camry of Boca). But I do get and agree with what your saying. Although you have to admit, when a Greenwich or Palm Beach home priced in excess of $50 million comes on the market, it does add something when you have a classic car parked in front of the house…Duesenberg, Bugatti, Cadillac V-16, etc. I think it becomes tacky when you have the newer cars showing off.

        An E-class Mercedes is the widely used taxi here.
        That’s the reason why some people say: “If I wanna drive a mercedes I will order a taxi.”

        Sorry Daniel…

    Yeah, the only appropriate place for a urinal is in a Man’s Cave. Even these type of rooms tend to be faddish & eventually disappear. What happens when down the line it becomes your daughter’s ballet rehearsal area? It screams to me – grow up!!! Sorry, I haven’t inhaled my morning coffee yet – brain is just starting to wake up, plus I usually read other blogs saving the best for last & somehow started here today!

      The bath with the urinal is the “his” bath on the lower terrace level. There is also a Her” bath as well as 2 full baths on this level. The main power room is done in white and black marble floors and walls with a silver dome ceiling.

    I actually really like this house although it seems very feminine. The exterior needs a little variation. I really like the wood-paneled library + billiard room.

    I agree the staging is well done,however some of the features are off such as putting a salon at the front entrance? Who does that?? The powder room was very unattractive. Overall too showy for my taste. I think mansions can look gorgeous without looking like the owner lives with a stick up their @$$

    I took the tour Dec. 1 and also had a hard time finding the tour bus. It was at the very bottom of the large parking garage.

    I must say the pictures do not show just how beauitful the interior of the house is. It has some of the most beauitful marble, granite, and onyx bathrooms I have ever seen. The main kitchen has mostly white cabinets and marble countertops that look just like milk chocolate with small white veins in them. I have never seen anything like it before. My favorite room was the mahogany study off the foyer. The wood work had a clearcoat so deep the wood looked like the wood in a Rolls Royce. The limestone staircase was also very beauitful. I was very lucky that when I was at the house there were only 3 or 4 other people there so I could take as long as I wanted in each room. I took lots of pictures. The black and white floor in picture #17 is not a rug. It is all marble cut to look like zebra stripes.

    There were some bad things as well. The house takes up 90 percent of the lot. The front sets back maybe 30-40 foot from the road. The pool is on the side of the house because the back of the house is only 15-20 feet from the neighbors fence.

    I’ll just keep my post short and sweet by saying the inside is MUCH nicer than the outside. Inside = B+/A-, Outside is maybe a C+.

    The only thing I cannot keep my mouth shut about is that urinal. A URINAL!?!?!?! You do not install a urinal in a private home, NO EXCEPTIONS. A his and her powder room is acceptable, but don’t you dare add a urinal. It isn’t a truck stop for God’s sake.

    Beautiful home.
    The detail work is fantastic and the crown molding is amazing.

    I think a urinal is a great idea in a home. My buddy has one in his home and I and most of us think it is pretty great actually.

    I consider this one of the top five homes in terms of interior that I have seen here. The urinal is a great idea, those things are like 1500 bucks, very fancy, and are typically in a bath off of a “male only” room, such as an office, cigar room, etc….I have also seen them in boys bathrooms, which saves cleanup from 5 year olds whizzing everywhere. I give the interior a 95/100, but it does need to be on acreage, not crammed on a lot.

    As the interior designer for the home , I m sorry people have had trouble with the shuttle , taking time to come tour the house is not taken for granted and I hope the issues were handled, the scope of designing the interiors for this home were to mix the art of comfort and style…showing fresh new ways to look at life on west paces ferry..an English manor with a twist….Fabrics, furniture and accessories that make the overall stlye more inviting,I have been a part of show house tours in the past, however as the only design firm invited in to over see the project , this team, this builder, and the home owners have made this house in to the home it is! 26years of practice in design in Atlanta and I’m convinced it one of my top five as well! Your pics are great and I’m glad you gave the house a second chance, a lot of money is being raised for the childrens health care in Atlanta , so the kind words are worth a fortune…so allow me to simply say thank you!

    Also ck out a behind the sence video showing the interiors coming together fast forward format which air on local tv…www.blacksheepinteriors.com/ then go on videos/ Sterling hall /

    I toured the mansion last week. I too had trouble with the shuttle so I parked right at the house. It took me two hours to tour. Simply magnificent! Shane Meder and his team did a fantastic job. I’m a huge fan of both the builder and architect. Normally, I wouldn’t think to have a urinal in a home, but it really is tastefully done and somehow seems to fit in well. This entire home including furnishings is an absolute piece of art! Very Cool! Thanks for opening the home to the public and thanks for raising money for the Children’s Health Care.
