    Whenever I see a perfectly symmetrical house I can’t help to think of those cartoon mansions..

    But anyways it’s a nice home(I would paint the yellow parts on the outside white) and I like the art gallery, but I dont understand the floor plans. It says there’s a lower level that includes windows and a 4 car garage….I see that no where on the actual house. :-/

    The exterior is pleasing but something about the interior makes it feel so unwelcoming and fake. Everything is just too perfect. A very stiff home.

    Overall it’s very nice. The symmetry of the front facade works well on this kind of house. The interior is also nice, and there are some lovely collected items and art. In spite of being nice, and the personality the artwork could bring, it’s very impersonal feeling. It looks move like a staged showhouse than a home (and maybe it was heavily staged for the pics). In the end, it just doesn’t excite me at all.

    I love this house. The collections are tastefully displayed throughout the house (except for the booze bottles in the butlers pantry). The photos are not warm-sort of a cold cast to them which makes the house look cold. I do not like the double staircase and the rear elevation. Without window details or masonary or stone trim (like the front of the house) it looks sort of institutional. However, this house looks amazing and well built and decorated.

    Question: How do you know they’re Asian?
    Answer: Four study rooms and a library!

    The artwork in picture 14 helped give it away too…

    EDIT: Should have read the description first! Guess they’re not Asian after all…

      Ed Rogers is not Asian, he is American. Just as having a keen interest in French cuisine does not make you French, having a respectable collection of Asian art and artifacts does not make you Asian. Nor does having several rooms in use as studies and libraries.

    I don’t mind the symetrical nature as long as the architect isn’t being lazy about it. Anyone can draw a box…

    This house is disappointing. I should love it. But for some reason I just can’t get excited. I can’t tell if it’s the furnishings or the house itself, but there is something about this house that just rubs me the wrong way. I think they were trying to stay 90% antique/classic with a just a touch of contemporary colors and materials. This has been done many times before with much better results. I bet this home looked great on paper, or maybe it just hasn’t aged well since 2001.

    I was very curious as to how everyone would take this home, which is why I tipped Kenny off on it. I agree with most of the commenters in that there’s something that comes off as impersonal and cold about it, in spite of the extensive collection of art and artifacts. Normally housing a collection like this in one’s home would give the place an air of personality, but it doesn’t in this case.

    It may just be the photos, but the whole place is just very muted in general. The classic furnishings help keep the place from feeling dated, which it does very well, which is one of the good things about the place. I think once the owner’s personal belongings are out, there will be a solid starting point for the next owner. I have no problems with the exterior of the home. High points inside are probably the kitchen and the double staircase, which for once looks like it’s proportioned right.
