    Brrrrrrrrr. Such an unwelcoming and cold home. Exterior is terribly austere, and not in a good way. Thank god the grass stays green year-round. Inside is equally cold, mainly because of the nearly black wood used throughout. Perhaps if a lighter shade was used, the home would be a bit more pleasant. The price is pretty outrageous, considering the waterway this is on is not a no-fixed bridge canal (sorry, no sailboats or anything taller than 15-feet or so). I’m pretty sure you can find something similarly priced in Coral Gables that is on a no-fixed bridge canal and much more welcoming.

    The front facade is pretty austere and could stand to be a little more welcoming. The formality doesn’t both me, but it comes off as bank-like. I don’t mind the rear facade at all. The interior: I like the style but hate the color scheme. Getting rid of a lot of the dark wood would go a long way. Even a lot of the art is dark and should be more lively. Beyond the somberness of the colors, I like it.

    Definitely unwelcoming and impersonal. I like the bank comparison that Grrrowler commented on. I agree with both of the above opinions that some lighter wood would life the mood considerably. Overall I’m not a fan.

    The home also sticks out like a sore thumb compared to the homes around it…it looks to be surrounded almost exclusively by ramblers on a much smaller scale. I know that some people don’t mind that, but I wouldn’t like it.

    As far as modern/contemporary homes go, I don’t mind it. It is definitely cold and somewhat heartless, but not as much as some other homes in this genre.

    I think what the exterior is missing is better landscaping. It needs color variation. The landscaping is immaculate as it is, but some bougainvillea or other bright colored plants that do well in the Florida heat would really bring more vibrancy to the exterior and make it more ‘homey’.

      I don’t need different/better plants, I need some more personality to be evident in the physical structure. Climbing ivy or bougainvillea are not going to fix this place, at least not to my (and I’m sure others) eye.

    This house is beautiful for sure, but it could be absolutely so, with the LARGE additions of color, various materials, some more, CORRECTLY installed “glamour” and the like, but the basics and then some are wonderful. ESPECIALLY the stair bannister………..TOO lovely…..the Deco inspiration is perfect in the house………I could be very happy there. And yes, the exterior is way too sterile….needs a WHOLE lot of color, and more informal plantings to soften/brighten it up.

    At $5 million or so, this house would be very nice and perfectly acceptable.
    I like that fact that it actually has some sort of backyard in addition to the pool area which is a huge plus.

    The only thing I like about this waterfront is its covered patio and swimming pool…
