    And here I thought Florida was bad at using every square inch of land..

    There is A LOT going on in this interior. Most of it needs to be taken down a few notches. I do like the dining room, master bedroom and theater though. The lakefront is nice but the lot is just too tiny for the house.

    Agreed. Even though the lot appears bigger on the lake site, it is unacceptably small and the house is sited ridiculously close to the house adjacent. At least a $2M penalty for that faux pas.

    interior is way to messy and overdone, but the backyard is one of the best layouts i have seen in a while

    This is one of the houses I pointed out that I liked in the street view in a post a few days ago, and I still really like the house itself. But, the entire interior has to go. There are some nice details built into the house, but it’s all just ruined by the vomit-inducing interior design. The breakfast and billiard rooms aren’t bad in their current forms, and I love the herringbone floor in the billiard room. The main dining room could be a beautiful room, with some effort; I’d even keep the Chippendale chairs, but lose most of the rest of the furniture. The living room could be stunning given the right decor.

    It is a shame that the house is shoehorned onto its lot. If it were on the double lot that that’s comprised by this lot and the one immediately to the north it would be great. The lake-side setting is really nice, the and lake-side pool is wonderful.

    Interior design is too fussy, as most everyone else has already said. The sheer scale of some of those rooms is uncomfortable to me…I’m not against large spaces, but a couple of those rooms are just so MASSIVE, I don’t like it. I do like the outdoor living spaces, they’re all very pretty, but as everyone else said, the lot is far too small. As the builder’s personal residence, I would have expected him to take the lot that that other home from a week or so ago is on, the one just south of this place, on the pond. Or, as Grrrowler said, at least done a double lot with the home next door. The busy interior ruins this one for me.

    Opulent houses are often right on the limit for me.
    Some rooms are a bit too garish, others make me exited.
    The theater is really cool. Its great to see theaters become more interesting over time.

    This I LIKE… in all its opulence, of course the lot is too small, but the views don’t really show that ( the lake helps) but, if you like this kinda thing, go for the VERY expensive home on 5+ acres on the agent’s site!!! YUM YUM.
    Dreaming is perfectly LEGAL on HOTR. (i hope) 😉

    First of all that is a pond, not a lake, not even remotely close to being a lake.
    Where do you guys live that you think that is a lake?

    Secondly I think the builder used every square inch of his lot that he could and did a good job. That other area that you see is either another vacant lot or common area for the neighborhood.
    The way houses that large and that expensive are crushed up on each other is quite disgusting though.

    The house itself is quite nice and I really like the movie theater.

    This looks a LOT like the Ritz-Carlton hotel from Seasons 7, 8, and 9 of the 80’s television series, Dynasty. The exterior, the chateau styling, the foyer and the staircase are all reminiscent.

      The terrace is also a dead-ringer for the fictional Ritz-Carlton in Denver, CO.
