    The exterior is putrid. So gloomy and solemn that it hurts. The interior has its redeeming features and I like several of the bolder details they used. But nearly $9 million for a non-oceanfront home in one of Florida’s sleepiest communities? No thanks…

    The outside looks like its made of candy. Inside, meh, a few really nice rooms. Why not marble throughout?

    I don’t think this is too bad…with some changes in decor it could be very nice in my opinion. Unfortunately nothing will change the fact that it’s piled onto the house next door, and probably will be to the other side within a year or two as well.

        Yeah, I was ready to give it a pass until I saw the price. This is a strange house, half of it is really good and half of it is really bad. I don’t know, it is just not Florida enough for me in style.

    I can’t to understand 99% of today’s houses.
    Where did the gold architecture of the 20th-30th years? Where the great houses? When I look at today’s home I see a cheap plastic, gaudy marble, reminded Chinese fake.
    Maybe Chiltern mansion in Hillsborough is a rare exception.

        Maybe you’re exaggerating. A few dozen? I would agree if you mean the Smith’s architect houses (La Reverie, La Follia). But a few steps away, I see Trump monster and another house that reminds me Disney Land (Montsorrel).

          Hardly an exaggeration. I could bore you and the other readers of HOTR, but you’d be surprised at the level of refinement in both the old master homes (Mizner, Fatio, Wyeth, etc.) and the new master homes (Jeff Smith, Bridges Marsh & Associates, Smith and Moore, etc.). As far as the former Trump residence is concerned, I MUCH preferred it before he got his grubby paws and it and “remodeled” it. Painting all the walls beige and remodeling the kitchen really doesn’t fly in my book, especially when we’re talking about a $100 million house. Montsorrel I love. The largest parcel of land in Palm Beach coupled with the admittedly gloomy 1940s architecture makes for a special home. And I don’t think one can argue the level of refinement in it:

            I wouldn’t want to have a long dispute, and I agree with some of your arguments. I only noted a trend of decline in the quality of architecture. This is evident when comparing the old great houses and modern houses. I very rarely see examples of quality architecture. Even Chiltern has disadvantages (low ceilings and inauthenticity and misplaced blotches of modern architecture).
            I can show you hundreds of ugly buildings, but I need time to find some good homes.
            Nevertheless, there is really good houses.

            In that regard, I agree with you. The scale between finding an aesthetically pleasing home and one that is tacky unfortunately tips toward the latter. I think it is very rare, as you pointed out, to find a home that just “works”, especially with the bigger is better mentality. If only the collaboration between architects and designers was more successful…

    waterfront home… Where are the windows? you can barely see the water from any of the rooms, because they are too busy making walls look pretty.

    gah

    I’m not usually a kitchen guy, but that kitchen is among the most visually confused that I’ve seen. At least it doesn’t have red vinyl counter tops. The exterior looks like a little kid’s sketch or something from a child’s playhouse. Hard to believe anyone would spend millions actually building it. Let’s keep an eye on it as it slides into “bank owned” status.
