    The outside isn’t horrible. It’s missing the patina of age and more mature landscaping, but that will come in time. The interior is heinous. There’s too much brass (who’s going to polish all that?), the chandeliers are horrible, and there’s surprisingly little detail. I hate the stairway, but then again I never like horseshoe staircases. The balustrade is way too busy and gaudy, but then again the gaudy attribute fits with the rest of the house.

    As for the price, it’s optimistic at best and ludicrous at worst. It’s the most expensive property in the town by more than three times. I’m anxious to see how the price drops on this go; something tells me they’ll need to be substantial for anyone to be interested.

    The exterior really wouldn’t be that bad if it weren’t for the oversize wood doors. Interior tries too hard…and fails.

    It’s a nice home, but it’s so far beyond my tastes that it hurts to look at it. Inside and out it’s just… too much – in a bad way. It’s not incredibly stately or important looking. It’s just flashy for the sake of being flashy. Until they tone it down a smidge, this will only appeal to a very limited demographic. And that kind of buyer will probably hesitate to fork out $18M. This is one of those homes that they owners deeply loved and customized, but left it handicapped in the market. My favorite parts are the billiards room and the office.

    In 2001 the house sold for 4 million dollars to the current owners. Now they are asking 18 mil. Are these people out of their minds.

    I used to like this house… This is how all these new swanky Beverly Hill mansions will look in a few years, I can imagine this looked good at the time, now its purely dated. The yellow sofa and the carpet in the games room… I feel sick, I actually remember when I felt close to vomiting at some house parties there were times that the decor of the persons house actually made me feel worse, this is a perfect example.

    Sam’s comment hit home. The reason we all liked the 27,000 house in Atlanta Georgia was that it is timeless, not dated.

    This looks cheap and gaudy and tacky, this house looks like the illegitimate spawn (if it were possible for them to procreate) of Victoria Gotti and Donatella Versace would shack up in this trash!!!!

    Also the gold on the banisters aren’t the same shade of gold as the gold on the ceilings and you can clearly see the grout lines between the marble tiles, I have seen some really expensive homes where the marble flooring is done in a way where the marble seems almost seamless, it looks tacky when you see those grout lines, its not that noticeable in the photo of the foyer but it is noticeable in the photo of the upstairs

    My dad had this house built for us and we used to live here! The new owner changed it soo much! There used to be a playground and basketball court and now they took it out and put a tennis Court. And the house wasn’t that fancy either! But I absolutely love this house!!! It holds so many great memories!!!

    I like that I don’t live next to this eyesore otherwise every time I’d drive by I’d have to immediately and recklessly find the nearest CVS and buy pepto bismol to calm my soured stomach.

    Anyone who does not see the beauty in this house obviously lacks exquisite taste. This home is a timeless classic! It was in 2000 years ago, it is in today, and it will be in 2000 years from today. To say you do not like this home is like walking into a museum and looking at all the fine arts of Picasso, Rembrandt, Michael Angelo, etc and saying these are disgusting pieces of art and do nothing for me, as some do. Well I got news for ya. They are not disgusting pieces of art as this is not a disgusting home. They have been well established over time as the finest and have endured the years and proven their existence over the years on earth as being some of the finest money can ever possibly buy. They do not lack anything. Rather, it is you who is lacking inside. Not these well established arts or this timeless classic of a fine crafted home, which also displays itself as do the fine arts!! But then again, not everyone can have good taste.
    I been following this home since it has been built and been telling myself I will own this home one day!
    By the way, since so critical, let’s see the picture of your home!!!
