    To continue Daniel’s meme, it looks dark and spooky. I don’t like that it’s a brick house with stone used on the interior; it’s too dichotomous. Some of the interior details are nice, but just not in this house. The great room, with different furniture, window coverings, and paint (why is the back part of the room a different color?!) could be nice. The library is nice, but needs different furniture. The pink and green room…maybe I’m old, but I remember when Blake was a boy’s name. A pink and green room for a boy is…interesting. I expect to hear Hank Hill saying “That boy ain’t right.” The master bedroom ceiling is needlessly complex. The height is nice, but there’s too much going on. I hate that niche in the stairwell. A niche can be nice. A mural can be nice (used in the right way). A mural in a niche is an affront.

    Looking at the rear of the house, the creepiness continues. I expect to see a disembodied ghostly face peering out of one of the upper floor windows.

    $2.5 million and you have to use the community pool!? No F-ing way!

      Right after I was done giggling, I quoted your ‘niche’ comment in promoting this blog on Facebook.

    Those ceiling lines are crazy, and not in a good way. This is a home that was designed from the outside in. ‘Hmm. Let’s see. A dormer would look nice… HERE.’ And faux-finishes? Ick.

    I do love the nice big tub in the master bath. Are those a pair of expansive walk-in closets behind the doors on either side? Mama like.

    But my one-bedroom apartment has more counter space than that kitchen. No homemade pies for you!

      That’s funny!!! I’d feel weird being served something in that kitchen with the life buoy or giant life saver over the cross. It probably says, “Jesus who art our life saver/saviour, please bless our food/souls” ROTFL

    I like the dining room ceiling. Not much else though…

    I don’t think its too bad actually. I like the quirky lines in some rooms, and yes, some of the color choices aren’t the best, but…

    One of the things I DON’T like is the massive stone bbq on the deck. That should be down below, off of a patio, and near the missing swimming pool. I’m also not a fan of the kitchen as the cabinets look Home Depot.

    Considering its one of the cheaper homes featured in the past few weeks, it isn’t all that terrible. The exterior is a little dark, but I think it is because some of the huge windows use a black frame; Perhaps if a white or wood frame had been used, it wouldn’t look as bad? However, I cannot believe how dark the 1st floor patio is in the back…you can’t even see the doors!

    Architecturally, inside it isn’t that horrible (C+/B-). As mentioned, nearly every room would need to be re-painted. I kinda like the living room, though this house must be the Alpahretta abode of the Roloff family – that chandelier is impossibly low. The foyer ain’t bad, and I like some of the Victoria crown molding used, but as Grrrowler said, that niche is incredibly useless. They should have added a mural or something on the opposite wall. The two-story kitchen is a little weird; I wouldn’t have made the 2nd floor hallway jut out into the space like that. And using a rocking chair as an office chair is just begging for someone to crush their hands on the desk. Also, the two light sconces in the tiny bathroom is really going overboard. As Mak said, the fireplace on the second floor is a little weird; I would have put it on the 1st. And THREE LAUNDRY ROOMS?!?!?!? What? Does this home double as a dry-cleaners on the weekend?

    Overall, compared to the other homes featured this week, this one isn’t that bad. However, that does not mean this house is a winner.

    Your typical over decorated, east coast, cookie cutter mcmansion. I don’t like the two story kitchen, and why a giant cross on the wall? Reminds me of the before-kfc-tacobell-dinner scene from Talladega Nights, Bless our food, sweet innocent little, baby jesus. LOL Yeah, I’m not liking this house at all.

    It is not a terrible house.
    I think it is ok and the price is not bad.
