    Looks like Monaco!
    Never knew Austin has so much water

    The central portion of the front facade is nice; I like the Palladian symmetry. When the camera pulls back it all falls apart. Since the driveway wraps around the side of the house anyway, what weren’t the garages put underground with an entrance from the side or back? It would have been much better than the doors facing the entrance court. The back of the house is plain ugly.

    The interior has some beautiful details, but I really hope that it’s staged. It’s currently incredibly boring and predictable, and not the least bit personal. It’s so beige it’s painful. I would like the trim in some of the rooms to be finished wood instead of painted to make it warmer and feel more “rich”. Overall it rates a polite “Nice but seen it done before”.

    The exterior would improve greatly without the gigantic domes. If they were clad in copper, then I could possibly warm up to them. The overall site plan is incredibly uneven. It truly is like they built this in Monaco, with no space for a flat terrain. I don’t particularly think a view of the marina is all that prestigious (at least an Austin, TX marina). The interior I am very fond of though. It looks very well done and detailed. I would have made the living room larger and added a third French door. I like the architecture and design of all the other rooms. The last shot of the home does make it look very nice. Damn shame about those garages and the steep driveway.

    Nice house in a beautiful city, but the recession has hit hard and Texas is no exception even as it does reasonably well compared to other states. There are several beautiful houses in this area that have stayed unsold for several years and I doubt that the sellers will get their asking price. A sad fact that pertains to most of the homes on this site. The owners and builders put a lot of thought into designing and building them, but, in the end, recovering their investments is not going to be easy in a lousy economy.

    This is just okay. A split-second glance over the thumbnail shots had me excited, but on closer inspection I’m not sure I’m quite so enamored. There are some nice details inside, but it’s definitely too beige and like Grrrowler said, it’s all been done before, it’s not particularly imaginative.

    The view is nice-ish, but like Daniel said, the layout of the grounds is awkward. I would have liked to see more pictures of the land and gardens, but I’m not too fond of the home itself.

    This is an abomination. It is like the builder went to visit friends in California and New Jersey and stole every single overdone, tacky cliche element. From the stupid double stairway to the mediterranean design to the tacky wrought iron to the overdone marble to the round marble tub and on and on and on. This really shows no imagination or style whatsoever. It sticks out of the landscape like a sore thumb. I do really like the theatre and the round wine cellar and the furniture is surprisingly nice. The rest of it is just almost unbearable.
