    I really like the style and fit out. Classy and not over the top.

    What are those doors doing upstairs though?

    And who moves all the furniture out of a house but not their clothes!
    Maybe they’ve gone bankrupt. They can take your stuff but not the bed and clothes.

    I like many of the elements here. The front is very elegant as is the foyer. I’m not, however impressed with the rear exterior, or the window choices. I think large, plate glass windows aren’t particularly attractive, either from the inside or the outside.

    Nice, but not entirely so.

    Oh man…I really love everything about this house but I didn’t even notice the functionless doors on the second floor until I read the comments above. The design of this house was done strictly based on asthetics and abandoned the first principle of home design…’form follows function.’
    It also goes to show what a professional photographer can do to really show off the quality of construction and the evening shots of the exterior create a much greater appeal then if they were taken during the day. The entry doors are incredible looking.

    Some elements I love, some I hate. I really like the front of this home, but the identical windows really make the place look weird. I guess they were having a sale on that style, considering the uselessness of the second floor doors? Love the foyer – I think the wood and marble used is great. The office looks a little odd with that corner fireplace jutting out. The two kitchens really are useless in my opinion (and the 2nd one is kinda ugly). The rear of the house looks like a mash between 1950s Miami modern and French classical – hate it. Location doesn’t look spectacular; is that a school in the back? This also seems to be the biggest home in the neighborhood. I smell a price change in the near future…

    There is much I don’t like about this house…and very little I do like! The foyer is very attractive, but the rest? NO THANKS!!!

      Agreed. There was at least one thing in virtually every photo that I had a problem with. In some it was window choices, in others it was ceiling angles, in still others it was just the general feel of the room, something I can’t put my finger on.
      Overall this just feels bland and contrived. The master bath is gross, those non-functional second story doors look stupid and the profusion of kitchens is unnecessary. It needs more interesting landscaping, a more attractive rear exterior, and a lower price. On a more positive note, the home seems to be well positioned on a lot that seems to be challenged in the size department. I would, however, be interested to know how visible that large building adjacent to the rear of property is from the actual house. If it’s very visible, that’s a definite turn-off in a house of this style.
