    Finally- a wood paneled study that is not dark and depressing! I like this house.

    Price-wise, it seems fair. However, it probably is in the middle of nowhere as these Texas homes tend to be.

    I like parts of this home by itself. The wrought-iron entry in my opinion is beautiful, but on this home is it just too big and horribly scaled. The foyer also has parts that I love, such as the wrought iron balustrades, the Venetian plaster, the second story arches, and *shockingly* the gold dome. But the floors in this home are completely underwhelming and do not belong. Also, I actually like the style of the dining room and the light sconces, but the way it is executed here looks cheap. The office looks nice, especially the floors. The kitchen cabinets are a mess and the dishwasher looks extremely cheap – white, really? The living room is a mess, especially with the way the second floor hallway ceiling encroaches on the area. The master looks overdone and the theater is odd looking with the very high raised flooring.

    Overall, put it all together and it isn’t very gracious or elegant. But incorporate some of the elements into a completely different and Mediterranean home, and you have the beginnings of a nice home in my opinion.

        Eh, looking at the birds-eye it certainly doesn’t. The community is basically a cookie cutter community with big homes. No front yard, no back yard. And all the homes in the surrounding area just reek of foreclosures and short-sales…it’s like Wellington, Florida. No thanks.

          Definitely would not spent 4mm on that house but Frisco, Tx is a nice area…
          Its certainly not Beverly Hills but not in the middle of nowhere either, Starwood is a nice guard gated community.

    Very beautiful IMO… It is definitely on a grander scale than i might choose but overall i really like the components of this home! the front entryway is gorgeous and i really like the view when you walk in. I think they couldve opened it up a bit more over the living room as it is it looks kinda crowded. Other than that i really like this home!

    Probably one of the ugliest front entrances I have ever scene. That aside, the interior looks great as well as what I can see of the backyard.

      Thank you Onion. I was waiting for someone, anyone to mention how horrid that entrance is. The only saving grace is that you can’t drive up to that main entrance so attention is somewhat diverted.

    I like it, it is grand but not overdone.
    The price is not bad either.
    I have to have carpet in my office though, that is my only gripe.
    I will make an exception for Edelman leather floors.

    I’m not a fan of house footprints that take up the entire property. I don’t particularly like the front facade, with the cheesy stone railings leading up to the overly grandiose front door. I also think the ceiling in the (master bedroom) is way overdone for my taste. But thats just me.

    It needs lots more rugs though, even on the stairs. It would entirely too loud and resonant without them. No rugs in the master bedroom either? Whats with that?

    Daniel pointed out the strange height in the floor of the home theater. I think they hadn’t decided on the width of the seating when they constructed the flooring, and consequently, when they put in the reclining chairs, they were stuck with a very narrow walkway between the chair and the lip of the platform. Poor design work.

      OMG that theater is just jacked.
      You can’t watch the screen sitting that close up and that low down.
      That is terrible and that whole room needs to be reconfigured.

    decadent and over the top. Only thing I like is the foyer (parts of it, the feel).

    I went to high school with the owner’s son. The house itself is nice, location is so-so, about 30 minutes outside of downtown Dallas.

    However, the layout is an absolute NIGHTMARE. If floorplans ever show up, you’ll see. Nice house though

    I like the Spanish Mission facade. I hate the marble floors everywhere. I like the gold dome. I hate the lions at the front entryway. Am I missing something or is marble, marble everywhere the new fad?
