    I love the front facade. I hate the rest. The living room is tiny. The kitchen is…is that it? There’s not more kitchen hidden away somewhere? the library has potential, but the floor and the window treatments don’t work. The rest of the interior is completely forgettable.

    Why, oh why, don’t builders give the rear facade of newer houses like this the same detailing as the front? Yeah, I know it costs money, but if someone is spending $6 million on house, who wants to sit by the pool and look at a bunch of boring plain stucco and white vinyl window frames.

      You are right about the kitchen. I think the small living room is just a small informal sitting room though

      I agree with every single thing you said. Front looks (really) nice, to bad the rest of the house doesn’t…

      wow, once again, you took the words right out of my mouth. The front facade is fantastic, but I’m beyond underwhelmed with the rest. The library does indeed have potential, with a few tweaks necessary. But I was literally going to comment on the windows throughout the whole house….they look cheap, unimaginative, and shockingly “off-the-shelf” for a multi-million dollar home, and I find that flat out unacceptable. Same goes for the detailing of the other three sides of the home other than the front. I find the detailing lacking in the interior as well, everything is so BORING and unimaginative, and the BEIGE everywhere, while it does seem to be a decorating cue for Mediterranean homes, is just plain overbearing and oppressive.

      The front of this home makes grand promises that the rest of it just doesn’t follow up on.

    i’m wondering why a home builder thinks someone who’s going to spend $6 million for a house in Dallas is going to be happy with a 15 foot square dining room. that’s just one example. the room sizes seem off to me. there’s nothing special about this house–except a strait lane address. that can be very special. my guess is strait lane accounts for the price.

    I agree with almost everything Grrrowler said. Exterior is nice, interior is very reminiscent of a tract home. Kitchen is laughably small (and ugly). My favorite part is the library.

    That den area or whatever it is, the one off the kitchen with the wood beam ceiling and corner fireplace, seriously looks like one of those budget “sunroom” add-ons you can get for your house…it just looks tacked on and boring, and I really think the windows are mostly to blame. All of those uninterrupted huge rectangles of plate glass are so bland…there are so many better ways to do windows in a house that aspires to this architectural style. I’m sure this was the cheap way to go, but really, you’re gonna cut financial corners in a $6 million house? Bad move…
