    I hate it. I think I see the original 1819 estate, but it is surrounded by horrible mediocrity and about a dozen different styles, colors, textures and other crap. The window placements are completely random. I think it is plain and ugly.

    Inside looks like something you would rent for a wedding or Bar Mitzvah.

    As a single-family home, I think it is terrible. But if you want to give the Manzo family a run for their money (The Brownstone), then this is a sure bet.

    I love the interior and all the amenities it has, but I hate the exterior.
    There is a house like this in Bloomfield Hills, has the most amazing interior and the outside is plain like this.
    If that house had had a knockout exterior to match the interior, it would have sold the first day.

    The exterior is strange, but its definitely better than being ostentatious. The interior is great, except I am personally against houses that have that much open space in the living area. I think it would feel like a warehouse. that basement looks like an awesome place too. the ultimate man cave (just add a garage with a few cars in there)

    Interesting exterior, but really great interior.

    Sorry, but ALMOST 9 million bucks for a house with ONLY 4 full baths?! I don’t care about the overall size of the house or lot, but only 4 full baths are simply unacceptable for 7 bedrooms. Some of the interior is quite nice & well done, but the exterior looks like a almagamation of New England farm house, Motel 6, and mid-grade banquet hall. I thinks it’s waaaay too eclectic, more like spastic & confused. If I had to live in New Jersey, I’m positive that there are tons of more homes for sale in that stratospheric price level that actually look like they’re worth it from the outside.

    I don’t mind the exterior. Yeah it’s a bit this and a bit that, but imagine this whole HUGE thing to be one style, one coherent thing. That would looks massive and ugly.

    I don’t really like the interior but that basement must be one of the best entertaining places I’ve ever seen. Bowling alley, bar, theater. Great!

    My first emotion upon looking at the pics is pity for the house. I would love to know what the original 1819 house looked like, but I’m guessing it had a lot more character and charm than what’s been frankensteined together into its current incarnation. Going through the pics, every single room looks like it’s from a different house; there is no cohesiveness throughout the interior. I can picture the conversation the owners had with the designers: “We want it to be French, country colonial, contemporary, English country, Beaux-Arts, NW modern, with some nods toward the original farmhouse. Oh, and let’s throw in some Victorian touches as well.” This place would be best used as a B&B, which in some pics it looks like it is.

      And then the name, Tabula Rasa? This place is anything but a blank slate!

    I’m by no means new to this blog, but I’ve never commented before, but the quality of all of your existing comments encouraged me to go ahead and start

    ok, the home…I do feel as though the existing 1819 home probably had a lot of character before this Frankenstein project was undertaken on it, but now it looks like it just has a huge architectural tumor growing on its side…I definitely see where you guys are coming from with the comments about it looking like a warehouse or a banquet hall that you’d rent for a wedding. I looked this place up on Bing maps, and if you look at the satellite view (not the aerial photograph) you can see that there was a house that was bulldozed to make way for the addition onto this home. I love the recreational spaces in the new area of the home, but adding it all willy-nilly onto the side of the historic home was a mistake. They should have either built all of this space into the basement of the home so it wasn’t quite at visible from the outside (which there probably wasn’t enough room for within the original footprint of the house anyway), or built a completely detached “recreational arena” on the corner lot left behind after they leveled the home that used to be there. Both of these options would have at least partially preserved the architectural integrity of the historic home while still providing world-class recreational amenities in a modern style.

    oh, and I definitely agree that 4 bathrooms is about half the amount this home should have to compete in this price bracket.

    WOW!!! I LOVE the basement. The bar and bowling area is Freaking awesome!

    Upstairs is ugly, so I would spend a lot of time downstairs.

    Reminds me a LITTLE bit of Steve Cohen’s 30k sq ft. Greenwich mansion in the fact that it was added on to so many times. It ends there… This place almost looks modular because of all the additions..NOt a good thing. I do like how they kept the colonial and barn style throughout though.

    I thought this was some kind of hotel when I first looked at the pics. Things like the bar (with its 10 bar chairs) and the tables near the bowling alley just jumped out at me as “commercial” seating. I would expect to see a bartender, and a waitress in that environment.

    Then there’s the living room with what looks to be a catering event in progress. The house itself is a complete jumble of styles that also seems to say that this has been owned by numerous people over the years who just kept adding on chunks to suit their own tastes.

    Its ugly.

    Wow! 9 million for a house in a slightly above average neighborhood. No yard, no room for a pool. This is a 2-3 million dollar house at best.

    Check it out on Bing.

    Speaking of overpriced houses, my aunt and uncle are selling their house in Fairfield CT for 11 million dollars. The house has been on the market for about 3 years. After they got divorced my aunt got ownership and decided to sell it.

      VERY nice, Rob, for sure. I used to be in high-end (or at least, what used to be considered high end) real estate here in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, and I’ve been a whole lotta’ homes just like your Aunt’s. Unfortunately, she couldn’t have picked a worse time to get divorced & try to sell that huge, historic home. But, I’m positive she knows that, more than she ever thought she would in her WORST nightmares. And GOOD LUCK to your Mom….ANY one who has stayed in residential real estate sales since the Great Recession has got REAL staying power. However, I’d like to make a suggestion for you to forward to your mom. She should really consider changing the name of what’s called the library in the floor plan of the house, to another name due to the fact that there are no book cases whatsoever in the room. And I’m sure she’s heard that a number of times already…..in that stratospheric price range, utter & complete accuracy is mandatory. Cheers!

    It reminds me of the house that 50 cent bought from Mike Tyson’s ex-wife. Huge house, nice property, but it was built like a modular home rather than a mansion.

    OK, so you guys may hate most everything about the house.
    But in the spirit of the NCAA finals that began today, you have to admit that if you like shooting hoops…the basketball court is absolutely awesome !

    I just HATE this house!…then looking at other homes in the area, I see at least TWO I would love to own AND they are much less expensive, on larger lots, and Not trying to be too many things all at once! Make it a true “tabula rasa” and begin again with sensible plans.

    Like the exterior. It looks like some old main line house that has been built up over generations. Looks like a real old money home. Now the interior is another story. What a nightmare. Overdone and garish and poor quality. The living room is to be sick over. Truly, truly hideous. Nothing good about the interior at all.

    I mean when i look at it i definitely see a house but its not a very nice house. the exterior all works together its just not that elegant. the interior has a jumble of styles but for the most part they’re all individually nice. the kitchen has a nice country-farm feel to it, the basement is epic!, the great room is awesome, so are the rounded stairs going up the the loft and its neat how you can see the stairs on the loft as well. Gotta love that massive fireplace!! sweet half-court too.
