    Eh. I don’t like the exterior. Looks extremely tight on the lot. The interior reminds me of a celebrity’s home…eclectic, some nice pieces but overall it all looks slightly odd and mismatched. The price seems very high considering it backs up to a busy road and isn’t direct oceanfront. A very certain pass for me.

    Well, the house itself doesn’t look that bad, the interior is a bit less good but I really don’t like the furnishing.

    Daniel said it; horrible lot: house is bigger than half the lot. Surrounded by roads on 3 sides, one a huge one. Not oceanfront.
    10 million for being cramped up.

    No, not for me.

    (Sorry for bad English, I’m not born English ;))

      But then again; none of the houses in the neighbourhood have a lot “room to breath”.

        Well thank you!

        I had to laugh about Grrrowler’s kitchen comment. 😛

        Nice to know that our house (which costs a fraction of this one) has more outdoor space than this…

    Oh…no…just, no. The exterior is not only bland, but as has been pointed out it’s shoe-horned onto the let. Then again, it’s Laguna Beach, where it’s not uncommon to be able to touch your neighbor’s house through the kitchen window. The interior I just hate. It looks extremely uncomfortable, and it’s amazing how little art there is in a house that’s in an art colony.

    Yeah, I’m gonna have to concur with the other opinions here…the style of the interior is way too varied, the price is astronomical, and that lot…ugh, there’s no space at all. The general feel of the exterior design and landscaping just beg for a more spacious lot. For close to 11 mil I don’t highway 1 a mere spitball’s shot away from my backdoor. The exterior looked promising to me at first, but as soon as I saw this home on bing maps it was a no-go for me.

    Pass. Lots way too small. Price is too high. House is nice but not that nice. Nothing on the inside matches. Eh..

    I’m on board with the above posts…except, this the first home I’ve seen on HOTR that is NOT built with THREE storey rooms!!! I’m unhappy with that trend in recent Architecture…doesn’t anyone remember Frank Lloyd Wright?
    and the concept of “human scaling”? I have a suspicion that people (i.e.MEN…remember women weren’t “persons”’til 1929) build rooms with HIGH CEILINGS to compensate for their [tiny] genitalia. HMMM some thing to mull…

      GENIUS theory, Rich…..and if I had any money to bet, I feel 100% confident that i WOULDN’T on that statement. That’s (waaaay too often) been the classic behavior of the male animal throughout human history………perceived power, health, strength, longevity and larger “size” through eternal, unrepentant materialism……as truth as old as the universe itself……….ahhhhhhh, HUMANS. Aren’t we a trip!?!?
