    I can honestly sit here and say that none of them is all that special, even from a half-assed birds-eye view miles in the sky. I am positive that NONE of the architects/designers have been inside a park. Honest to Christ, am I reaching for the stars when I want some MATURE landscaping?!? A lot of people criticize me for loving the giant behemoths of Palm Beach, but at least most of those homes have attempted to retain or bring in trees…big ones. But even as barren as these elephants are, none look exceptionally beautiful or architecturally redeeming. I guess the only homes I like in the desert are Guy Dreier designed. As for the Pelican Crest one…it’s a mess. This is the best we can do in 2011? With so many other architectural wonders, it really begs me to ask the question where do architects get their ‘inspiration’ today? A Toll Brothers/Pulte/Centex/WCI Communities brochure?

    I don’t want to sound like I’m parroting Daniel here, but I’m not interested in a single one of these either. As he said, the landscaping is terrible on each and every one of these homes, and the homes themselves all look completely formulaic and overblown. And look at the lot size/shape of that first house! Heinous.

    I suppose if you twisted my arm and told me I had to tour one of these homes in person I’d pick the last one…but that’s only because it looks like it has a massive garage and I’m curious as to what cars might live in there.

      Mansion 4 has over 10,000 sq ft of heated a/c garages. Part of the space is finished as a showroom for some very expensive iron. Check the listing on realtor.com

        Wow, that’s impressive. I’d love more pics of just that garage, but the ’60’s era Jag XK120 certainly piques my interest. Thanks for the heads-up! I hereby change my answer of which one I’d tour to mansion #4.

    I have to agree with all. No landscaping (typical of these mansions), poor siting on cramped lots and overly complex plans. Unfortunately, complexity does not substitute for coherence or unified design. There are a few that look interesting – but only from 3000′ up. I have IDed some on Realtor.com at $300K that I would rather actually live in.
