    Homes like these aggravate me like nothing else. Putting aside the fact that this looks exactly like a home you’d see in a country club in central Boca circa 1986, I really want to know who signed off on the coffered cathedral ceilings. Isn’t that something they teach you during your first week at any accredited school of architecture. How in the hell does this architect expect a triangular ceiling to work with square coffers? Add into the mix the horribly cheap double staircase, the completely unoriginal floorplan and design, the office-inspired ceilings and light fixtures, and a home theater with an annoying couch, and you have something that SCREAMS bulldoze. This MAY have been forgivable if in fact it was in a central Boca country club and was in fact built in 1986 AND listed for what homes like this command in my part of town…roughly $2 million or so. But it was built in 2009, is located in Virginia, and is listed at $5 million+.

    I would slap the architect, owner and interior designer (probably the owner) over this abomination.

      Scream it. This house ain’t worth the time, effort and gas it would take to load/unload the bulldozer. Just torch the place.

          Glorious. And how in God’s name I typed “scream” instead of “screw” is beyond explanation.

            Lol. I dunno Daniel. You may have just started a new phrase. 🙂

            When something is so nasty that you just purely loathe it and can’t stand the sight of it… SCREAM IT!!

            I like all the fun connotations involved. haha

    Hope they have flood insurance. Irene may take this down the river…

    I think this home is owned by someone who just doesn’t care. They just do not have an aesthetic sense and put no store by such things. The person who lives here could be just as happy living in a warehouse with a swimming pool and a loft. They do not care about decorating or design. This house is simply a place to sleep, have dinner, use the restroom, watch a movie etc. They just care about it a shelter for living and nothing else. Could be a scientist, or an engineer or an incredibly busy and disinterested businessman. This is just a house nothing more nothing less.

    2009? Really? It looks as if it’s stuck in a time warp. Beyond that, it’s just ugly and terrible. There’s nothing about it I like.

    I’m desperately trying to find something I like about this house but I just can’t find anything. Even the pool area is ugly. The concrete is slanted in some parts and the furniture looks horrible. Not to mention the pool chairs are sitting on an ugly rug.

    This is one of those special homes that comes along once in a while…not very often…that actually makes me ANGRY when I flip through the photo gallery. There are homes that are disgusting, that are unspeakably ugly, that have no redeeming qualities about them, but don’t make me angry. This one makes me angry.

    Kenny, put a TASTEFUL Virginia property up, because the last two have been a little embarrassing!

    The house is hideous outside.
    I swear the diagonal hardwood floors are actually leather.
    It is pretty much a teardown in my opinion.
    Irene or the earthquakes should take care of this.

    ok, its not THAT bad, just priced about 3.5 million too high??? And half of that price I’m “allowing” is for the location. But 18,000 sq ft??? What the heck? A better use of space could have saved a lot in this square footage monster!!! Think of the upkeep! I do have to agree that for what it was “trying” to be, this house is definitely lacking. And, uh… WHY would you have 6 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms? I can see a few more baths than bedrooms, but 10? And 18,000 square feet… but these are all the rooms??? I just don’t get it. And (yes I keep starting sentences with and!) for such a “mansion”, THAT is the pool??? Are you kidding me??? There should be a fabulous pool. It looks like something that would be at any normal beach house rental. Actually that is what this whole house reminds me of, a beach house rental, although this would be a really nice, and fun beach house rental. Too bad the owner has so much into it, otherwise he could turn it into a great rental… I’d rent it (at a bit over what other beach house rentals go for, but not tons more!) :o)

    Is it just me, or are double-staircases just a really boring way to waste money?
