I actually went to one of the open houses a while back. It’s gorgeous in person, however it’s built a little too close to the road in my opinion.

    Now this I like… It’s the right size, and I think the exterior is beautiful. It has the perfect amount of traditional style, without feeling stuffy, crowded, or too complicated. The price is good too. The only things I would change are the ceilings in the kitchen (I’d like it to match the dining room or living room’s style, and I would make all the hardwood the same as that of the study.

    I don’t like the exterior. Ugly details and the way the roof sticks out over the entry is weird. Inside doesn’t look too bad.

    I agree with Daniel regarding the roof sticking out over the entry. It looks really bad to me. I also find the interior quite boring. That said, I’m sure in person the interior is probably quite nice.

    I could handle living here … not too big, not too small. And the interior? Let me get some interior-decorating done and it’ll be just FINE 🙂

    NJ continues to underwhelm me here.
    This is a prime example of real estate agents affixing the label “European” to a home that has little loyalty to any one architectural style. That facade is a royal mess. The roofline is ugly and it’s way too busy, all kinds of different windows that don’t go well together, fake balconies, it’s just ugly.

    Inside is average at best. I don’t have any super-specific complaints, I just don’t really like the general feel. that “overlook” area (or whatever you want to call it), the area that overlooks the great room and has an oval-shaped cutout to the room (breakfast area?) below is a colossal waste of space (see picture 12 on the listing website). That space just ends up being awkward…the oval cutout prevents any kind of furniture placement and creates an awkward walkway around it that just doesn’t have any point. Wasted space like this is a big sign of design weakness to me.

    I do like the library, the kitchen is okay, and the home is on a decent amount of land, but that’s all it has going for it…that and a drastically reduced price.

    I don’t like that they put the 2 gables on the ends and hips everywhere else. Other than that its not horrible. Interiors not bad either.
