    It’s a beautiful house overall. The rear facade is not overly appealing, and I’m not sure the Asian theme fits the rooms that were done up as such, but otherwise I like what I see. The decor of a couple of the first floor rooms aren’t to my taste, but hell, at least they have some personality (i.e. they’re not BEIGE). Probably my favorite part of this home is the front facade, which I think is beautiful and imposing without being over the top. It’s understated, and the gravel driveway and modest landscaping help that. It looks to be sited well too, good privacy and a piece of land big enough for a large home, unlike many other large homes in large cities. Nice.

    I will pretty much agree with NOVA Ben that this is a very well done mansion, particularly the entrance front. Compare this with the muddled mega-mansion listed previously, as both are variations of French chateaux. The rear facade is not well realized, however, due to the massive roofs unrelieved by dormers, which look oppressive. At the very least, this should be considered a worthy effort. There are too many competing styles going on in the kitchen, however.

    I agree with the above statements. The front facade and interior look like some thought was put into them. The rear roof however is incredibly obese looking, and would benefit from something to break up the huge expanse of tile/slate.

    I agree with all the above comments. I think the front is really attractive, and looks both welcoming and stately. I also think that the interior is beautiful. I actually like some of the Asian-themed elements, not least because they introduce a little color to the design. The biggest failing is the rear facade. A couple or three well-placed dormers would have made a world of difference.

    The covered table in the foyer is awful. I guess the decorator loves tablecloths-pics 2, 7 and 10.
