    Jeez, that second floor really is different (Read: CHEAP) from the ground floor, huh? That theater also does not belong in this house. Grounds are nice.

    Still my favorite house on here. This place is stunning. Love the woodwork, the details in the vaulted room, the early french style decorating in the sitting room, the grounds, the dependencies. How long is that pool? It looks Olympic length. Is there any way to keep Mak from seeing this post?

    Wow…this home is incredibly dark. I honestly reconsider why I like it? It just looks dark and gloom. Like a home that holds many disturbing secrets…Thats just my opinion. Getting ready to be ripped by Mak! lol

    Home is nice, but not my cup of tea. Too much like a medieval castle for me. I like a lot of the gardening and the woodwork on the inteiror is very nice, otherwise, I don’t care a whole lot for the interior design. that pool room is also far too plain for what I’d expect to find in a $40+ million dollar home, and as for that home theater, all I can say is, “WTF”

    Finally…we get to see pictures of the infamous Chiltern…I love this style…english tudor and both the exterior stonework and the interior woodwork is amazing, but certainly not for everyone. I think it’ll look much nicer if they turned into strictly a residential place. I didn’t read the listing info but it looks like it’s being used for commerical use?? The hallway upstairs look like a museum art gallery?

    Best of all…it has a koi pond !!!! 🙂

    What does the second picture mean? It is nice and all but it seems like the water is close to flooding the home. Anyone have an answer?

        It isn’t water. Compare it to picture #1, they are of exactly the same view of the house, the “water” is part of the concrete driveway. I have no idea why it looks like that, though

          Yep, just rain, you can even see a spot by the front door that is dry.
          There are however driveways that have finishes that make them look wet all the time.

    I think the exterior is nice and the grounds are nice, the interior is hideous, expecially the movie theater room, if I bought this property I would gut the interior and have a good quality construction company like Finton Construction or Hadid Development redo the interior, then i’d have the grounds spruced up a little, I think it is a good property because of the grounds and the exterior and I personally like the idea of having a property with that aged old world look with quality that can’t be duplicated today and then adding a brand new interior that is made to look old but is actually new, I wouldn’t want to live in a dusty old interior that’s been around for hundreds of years

    Ok. I’ve had some sleep and I feel better. I tossed and turned all night trying to think of some way to come to grips with this whole….debacle. A couple of shots of benadryl, and out like a light. Now I feel rested and ready to face this…this….

    I get it…no, I really do. People do the damnedest things. I’m sure the guy who put this magnificent place together had some personality “quirks”…and its perfectly reasonable to assume that one of them was the need to be a Master Of The Universe. I think you’re entitled to a little crazy with your breakfast if it makes you happy. Skitzo stuff is bound to happen though, and people are going to question your sense of style. Hence….

    So he/she/they got a few rooms wrong. Is that so bad? Shouldn’t even the richest, most cultured among us be allowed to have an off day? Sure, that media room isn’t what most of us would consider attractive (or even comfortable), but what of it? The weird way it’s furnished implies that there’s something more to this room than using it to watch The Little Mermaid. Maybe the guy’s using it for meetings of his MOTU team, plotting and plotting…but hey…its his money…his dream…who are we to…

    And yes…that third floor (yes THIRD FLOOR) hall with the museum feel is a little out of character, but you’ve got to put the good stuff somewhere safe but where you can find it, amirite? Maybe its got some kind of alarm system in place, or its built for fire protection because what I think is that the stuff in the glass cases is worth in the many millions of green things. I actually LIKE the idea that its like a little museum up there. Things behind bullet/explosive proof glass makes sense. Keeps the kids friends from touching and getting their little dirty hands all over everything, and you know how hard it is to get rid of mini fingerprints off your personally signed copy of the Gutenberg bible.

    Yes, some of it is skitzo, but…remember, there’s a family living here. Kids live here too, and believe me, they can contribute a whole LOT of serious crazy to the mix. If you look at the pics on the listing site, you can appreciate what fine sense of styles their children exhibit. Oh, and PICK UP YOUR FORKING ROOM HAROLD!

    Go ahead…take a look…you know you want to.

    So anyway…yes, rich people have their idiosyncrasies just like the rest of us mortals. One thing this place does have, which proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that they have great taste and style, is TWO koi ponds.

    Chiltern. Still my most favorite of favorites…

    oh and another thing.

    36 THOUSAND SQUARE FEET LARGE.

    and thats not including the grounds…

    My place is a little over 3k, and I think its big. How the hell does someone even know whats going on inside a place as big as this? You certainly can’t yell to find anyone. YVONNE! WHERES YVONNE? IS DINNER READY YET?

    You’ve got rooms that people don’t go into for months or even years. I have a hard time finding things in my place, like my glasses. What the hell happens if you happen to leave them someplace weird? I guess since this place needs enough staff for a hotel, someone is bound to find them.

    Can you imagine smoking a doobie around here? So many good places to camp out and enjoy the surroundings. Parties would be so severely awesome that it gives me little tiny squee’s just thinkin about them. And lots of places to do the dirty too. Imagine up on the roof patio, at night, with the stars…and a bottle of bubbly. Or maybe hanging out in that master bedroom…oh the possibilities are endlessly wicked.

    hate the house, love the grounds. The mansion reminds me of Marble Hornets, Slender Man, and lots of places to hide kidnapped children . . . and yes, i did just barely finish watching it.
