    This place is a bit over the top.
    Whats up with the roof? Looks like gophers and trying to crawl out of it.

    Ha! What a comical house. Exterior looks like something Shrek would have built if he won the lottery. Interior is just…bad. Dated, musty, and over-the-top are not a good combination.

    I saw this last night and was hoping you’d post it! The roof…something is definitely up with that (pardon the pun). Hugh’s description of gophers is spot on. I had to look really closely at the pics to figure out if it was shingle, or thatch, or sod, or what.

    I have to admit that I sort of like this house. It’s a folly, and that I appreciate. it’s definitely over the top, but if you’re going to cross the line between serious and whimsical in a house, go way over the line. My concern is that the owners weren’t going for whimsical and think this is high style. Sadly, most of the interior they chose for the house is a complete mismatch to the exterior, and falls on its face. A truly whimsical interior, like something by LM Pagano, would fit this house, and it could be kind of cool.

    too funny…I went to bing maps and expected to see this place perched on a hilltop overlooking LA or the ocean, but it’s located in the middle of a modert income neighborhood and virtually no lawn, just house, driveway and parking lot in front. What a shame, because I like these english style houses a lot, but not digging the location.

    hmmm… this one is truly unlike any other house i have ever seen.. The roof is wild, i don’t know how to feel about it. its wierd but i guess i like it just because ive never seen anything else like it before. besides that the exterior is definitely cool, the interior is beautiful IMO and while i have to agree that everything is a little mis-matched i like the rooms on an individual basis for the most part. most of the wondows are different and i like that, the moulding throughout is unbelievable.. someone put alot of work into this place and paid alot of attention to detail. its just wierd though.. its my style but isnt at the same time. hmm

    Whimsical is definitely a good word for this home. I find myself strangely liking the exterior, and even much of the interior. The thatched(?) roof looks a little odd, but is somehow in keeping with the general feel. I do not like the dining room, and the kitchen needs to be redone, floor to ceiling, but the rest is oddly charming. The two major problems I have with the place are its location in a boring subdivision with much smaller homes, and the fact that there’s no grass lawns. Everything is covered by three things: the house itself, patios, and the extensive driveway treatment. It’s hard to tell what the topography is like on Bing maps, but at least it looks to be on a hilltop…I wonder what the views are like? (apologies if there are pics of the view on the listing website…I couldn’t get it to load)

    ?!?!?!

    Could NOT believe my eyes when I read 98% of your comments you guys!!

    This severe nausea-inducing, diahrrea-producing, perfect candidate for the wrecking ball is WRETCHED from start to finish. The only room that is tolerable is the kitchen, AFTER the FIRE ENGINE RED sinks are exorcised and destroyed, the walls are painted, cabinets too (or refinished), new appliances are installed, and that ballon shade is TORTURED and then burned.

    Looking at the pics made serious BILE rise in my throat.
