    Eh, not for me. Why do so many homes in Texas implement at least one room that looks like it’s been painted with mud?

    It’s nice, for a type. But it’s all so…predictable. It looks like a tract house on steroids, filled with average quality furnishings, and decorated by a designer at the furniture store. The price for the size and features seems very reasonable, but I would rather pay more for less to live elsewhere.

    When I see these kinds of home theaters, I really wonder what they are used for? How many times does it get used? Sure…we might have friends over for a movie on a Saturday night, but every weekend? Maybe once a month? I don’t know about everyone else, but I like to watch TV snuggled up on the couch (with my guy). These kinds of impersonal settings just leave me confused. Why have one? What and when are they used? Are they worth the money?

      Oh so true Mak. I’ve often wondered that myself. Sure, big screens are nice, but I’ve gotten used to watching movies on a 20 inch screen. In a way, I like it better.

      I think people just want a theater for the “just in case”.

      Having a basement with a non-dedicated theater with a pooltable, a bar or anything like that would be fantastic to have. Just hanging out with friends/family etcetera. But having a dedicated theater is something else indeed, Although I love movies I don’t see myself sitting there multiple times a week. I rather have something like I said above or just a nice tv or screen in the living room with a nice surround system.

      But about the house: I like it; exterior is all right, interior is not bad and price; well it’s a lot but maybe that’s justified.

      When you have more dollars than sense you’ll find lots of useless ways to waste your money.

        Not at all. If you’re a person who has a lot of people coming over to your house and you like movies, then this will make sense. I was perfectly happy with my 27″ screen until I the first time watched a movie on a 60″ plasma. That was something. I have a large family who get together often, at the very least twice per month and we sit around a big screen in the TV room and watch movies. So yes, I can see the appeal of a dedicated movie theater in your house. But if you don’t have a lot of people in and out your house who like to watch movies then it’s a waste.

        I remember my first 1 bedroom, 1 bath after college. Didn’t see the need in wasting money on a larger place when it was only going to be me. But once I started having people over for dinner or parties, or friends who move away but come back to visit, then the idea of at least an extra bathroom became really appealing. Then I started doing a lot of work from home, and the idea of an extra bedroom that could be an office became appealing. I may not use a guest bathroom every week, but when the need for it pops up, I’m so glad it’s there. Rooms are only a waste if you have no need for them. perhaps this family had a need for a home theater. Don’t fault them for it.

    I really like this place. I like the brown stonework that is carried out from the fountain to the house to the interior. Really has a beautiful warm look. I like the music room but it looks a little small, would need to hear the acoustics. This looks like a great family home as well as a home for giving great parties. The top floor has an open flow to it and you could have people playing games upstairs while having a cocktail party downstairs. The balcony effect would tie it all together. That backyard looks fantastic for those hot texas summers. Having a bbq by that pool would be a blast. And the price is great for what you get. The furnishings look like they came straight out of a catalog without alot of serious design sense, but they are ok. Give it an 8 out of 10, Good house.

    The price does seem right, sort of a bargain

    I like the study and the outdoor kitchen, but everything else is just mediocre
