    The only things I like about this place are the foyer and the stairway. I really like the colored marble floor and the woodwork. The great hall, dining room area looks terribly unwelcoming and awkward, and the artificial water feature is tacky. There are so many classier houses in Denver proper and up in Evergreen and Boulder that I do not why anyone would by this poorly themed McMansion.

      Well Evergreen is really far from any jobs in the city and Boulder is hippyville. CHV is the Beverly Hills of CO and this has some decent land as well. Definitely not a McMansion imo, but definitely better home available in CHV.

    I don’t like anything. Did they decide to skip having a living room and just making a huge dining room? Everything else just looks so disconnected. The materials don’t go with the furnishings, and its a jarring result.

    Every room is odd in some way. The great room is interesting, but then the two fireplaces are odd, and what is up with that long and skinny 18-seater dining table? The kitchen seems to have some very odd proportions, and the hallway leading away to the left of the stove looks ridiculously tall and narrow. Why in the hell is there a chair in the opening between the foyer and the stair hall, where no chair belongs?! The master bathroom looks OK, except for that odd small narrow fireplace. The upper stair hall is actually nice, except those chandeliers don’t fit the space. The master bedroom looks pretty good, except that someone put a lampshade on a the chandelier; it looks like an accident. The master closet is large (a good thing) but there’s so much unused empty space; what a waste. I could go on…

    Well I had problems going into this from the beginning…any home that it’s necessary to affix an “-esque” to describe the style is already going in the wrong direction. That said, there is nothing castle-like about this home…is it the use of stone that that refers to?

    I have no problem with the materials used in this home, they all look very nice, but it’s the way they’re used together that doesn’t work. As almost every else said, this place is too disjointed style-wise, and I agree with the opinion that there are some odd proportions as well. I have nothing against the CHV location, but the home needs some cohesion where style is concerned.

    I think they were going for Tudor-esque (sorry Nova) and in that sense it worked. The “dining hall” reminds me of those castles of yore where the great hall contained the dining table and a huge fireplace and was the main meeting area of the home. If I’m right then I think this is where they were going with it. Nowadays everyone has a living room or a great room as a main gathering area and they went with what was traditional way back when and made the dining area the main room once more.

    I think they may have not considered that there is a reason the dining hall isn’t the main gathering area any more. because unless you’re eating or you’re knights gathered to discuss the next siege, it’s awkward to keep people congregated there. kids want to play video games, adults want to watch television. And everyone wants to do what they want to do sprawled out on a comfy sofa or armchair. Not to mention the fact that we now have eat-in kitchens, so there’s really no need for a dining hall any more. Some things go out of fashion and you’re glad when they’re brought back in. Some things go out of fashion because they are purposeless in today’s society. This is the latter.
