    Boo. I was typing my usually verbose post and it disappeared on me. Let’s try again.

    While I am biased towards S. Florida Mediterraneans, I don’t think this home is worth anywhere near its asking price. First of all, it isn’t direct oceanfront (although it does have a tunnel leading to the ocean). Secondly, Manalapan isn’t Palm Beach. The town has seen a building boom recently with several old homes torn down and replaced with new palaces, but it isn’t as pricey as PB. I think the house is nice, but it’s lacking in a lot of places. I’m sure an interior designer will turn this into a stunner, but as is it is quite plain. I do like the back of it though.

    I see this home going for about half of its asking price. Given the choice, I would much rather have this home for only half a million more, plus its direct oceanfront and I’m pretty sure it was designed by Jeff Smith:

    I actually like it. It’s a good blend of traditional and contemporary stylings with a touch of Mediterranean vibe. However, I agree with Daniel that it is a bit plain, but that is easily rectified. The price seems high also.

    The Master Bathroom and backyard sold it for me. Overpriced but gorgeous in its own right.

    It has a high asking price, but what home on here doesn’t? besides that its a beautiful home in my opinion. Its plenty big without being obnoxious and the location is hard to beat. Not quite my dream home, but you’d never hear me complain if I lived here.

    I agree with Daniel…too plain and the price is too high for where it is. I must admit that these south FL homes never seem to leave much of an impression on me, but this one seems to blend in more than others…I’m not impressed.

    Oh, and regardless of what “Villa Lumina” actually means in whatever language, all I see in my head when I see it written is a crappy mid-90’s GM-made sedan 😉

    I love it but i want the road between the river and the house, not the ocean and the house.

    That takes a few mil off for me.
