    I really like the back of the house, with the pool. I like the surrounding area.

    I don’t like the theater, it’s too dark and dreary, and I don’t like the family room. It looks like a hotel lobby. Especially the way all the couches and chairs are facing each other.

    The first rule about designing a home is, you have to figure out how the furniture would go, that way you can structure the room to fit that.

    Oh my. From the nausea-inducing chartreuse exterior, to the McDonalds-looking roofs over the porte-cochere and garage, to the community center feel of the interior, to the cheap motel look of the rear facade, to its location in the middle of a damn swap, I despise it with every fiber of my being. Unfortunately, I can never un-see the pictures of this horrible horrible house.

    It’s not that I love the house, I like it, but I LOVE the idea of it. The stables, the cattle, a state income tax free state. Add to that no snow, a big house that is not overly formal, I LOVE the idea of it.

    If you really want an equestrian property in Florida, then Wellington is really the only sane choice. Not my type of lifestyle by any means, but it obviously caters to a number of people.

    As for the house, it isn’t the worst I’ve seen, but I honestly and truly would call this a tear-down. You can’t remodel it without it looking like its from the 1980s. I do like the view of the living in photo 4 though.

      To me a house that looks like is from the 80’s isn’t so bad. My body is from the 40’s and looks like it’s from the 20’s.

    Well judging by the low price (for a massive house on 100 acres) and lack of birds-eye-view photography, this must be in the middle of nowhere. The house is ugly as all get-out, and doesn’t really get any better inside. I agree with Daniel’s assessment of looking like it’s from 1980s, so I’m confused that it says the home is only “1 to 5 years old” on the listing website. Nothing here impresses me, other than the amount of land. And if this is such an equestrian lover’s dream, why are there no pictures of the equestrian facilities on the listing?

      Okay, there are pictures of the facilities, but only if you take the annoying virtual tour with cheesy video.
