    It’s got a nice drive and all but personally I find this kind of architectural form kind of sinister. Like a horror movie set or a haunted house

      ha, you’re right man. But the interior looks pretty good though…

      Not sinister, gothic… MAybe you should research a bit more instead of creating your own type of architectural forms.

    The exterior looks like it needs more windows. It’s actually the high roof line; it overpowers the front and is out of proportion to the rest of the house. I would add a couple or four dormers to the roof and it could possibly bring things into balance. The interior has possibilities. Even as is, the “bones” of the interior are tasteful and a great base from which to work. With the right decorator I think it could make a very nice English-style country house. The price seems like a great bargain.

      Its is an amazing price especially because it comes with a barn. Guest house, and a ton of land. The house was rushed in the end so many of the finishing were touches were chosen by random people because the owner/designer couldn’t finish them.

      This roof averages out to half a million dollars, Grrrowler. Your opinion is as nice as your idiotic name.

    I like the arched doors off of the Great Room(?) out to the patio, but the ceiling of the patio should be a dark wood rather than white.

    I agree that the house looks creepy. Photo 5 just gives off a terrible vibe for me…it’s like I’m expecting to see a ghost appear. And it’s also super plain. The rest of the house is completely forgettable. The exterior carries the same creepy motif. As Grrrowler said, the roof is too high and the windows are too small. Add larger windows and maybe a few on the attic, and it would warm up the house. I don’t see where the $5.5 million cost for this house is…

      Maybe the house is $5.5 million because it comes with a barn, guesthouse, and a ton of open filed. Just a thought.

      Daniel, Sarah is right. $5 million seems like an insult of price to ask for this home. A 11,00 square foot home including 2 acres of pasture, a magnificent barn with a $30,000 chandelier, and a two story carriage house is not with $5 million. This house is gothic style and obviously based off of Ralph Lauren’s Bedford Estate. This “sinister” look you are referring to is merely the intriguing story and wonder behind the home. Your comments are repulsive.

    Atrocious from every aspect.

    Let’s hope that SC will have much better mansions than this…

      Nick, I feel bad how completley deprived you are from the true beauty of this home. This estate is obvioulsy a mimic of the Ralph Lauren Bedford Estate ( one of the most notable estates to come by). Don’t comment irrelevant opinions of homes, when you don’t even know the true study of architecture. I would love to see what you call a “beautiful” home.

    Look at those lovely… trees. I’m sure someone will come along and call us all haters, but I agree with the comments that the roof should go on a New Years’ diet and some of those rooms could be occupied by ghosts. Maybe the property was once a battlefield.

      Siobhan, the only thing that needs to go on a new years diet is you.

    I personally think the roof line is kind of interesting, very french. I do think the proportion of the windows to the facade seems a little off but overall I find the facade to be quite attractive, just my opinion. I don’t see why so many are calling it creepy and talking about ghosts being there….

    Being a resident of Aiken, SC, there are many many more homes in this area that deserve to be on this site. There area lot of old estates and mansions in the area due to the large horse racing community.

      I have lived in Aiken, South Carolina my entire life and not one time have I ever seen an estate so unique and intriguing. While Aiken’s homes may be historic the insides are atrocious. Please show me one example of a stunning estate in Aiken. The nicest place you can find is the Wilcox Hotel.
