    The first thing I thought of when I saw photo 1 was the Sarah Winchester house…way too busy. The living room is nice, but everything else isn’t. The fact that the pool is screened in tells you how great the location is.

    Why would anyone want to live in a community called “Ormond Beach”, and then live miles and miles away from the beach? And then pay almost $8 million to do it?

    The house itself is…different. The Hansel and Gretel front facade is interesting, but I’m not sure I’m in love with it. It would be nice to see more than just a slice out of the center. I do like that there’s a motor court with the garages, instead of them facing the street. The large side yards seem OK. However, it doesn’t seem like anything too special and, at least from the bird’s eye view, just looks bloated.

    The interior…well, I’ll just say that it’s way too exuberant, and not in a good, interesting, or exotic sort of way. I guess it’s supposed to be French country in some way, but it’s more of a Levitz Furniture version of French country.

      Very well said. I couldn’t agree more.

    It’s weird to see a french style home in florida. I don’t think it fits the location. Whenever I imagine a high end florida home, I think it should be in the meditterean style. Fits the climate more suitably in my opinion

      I agree – I always find it odd when people want ornate homes near the beach. The climate just seems to want smoother cleaner surfaces, and softer colors.

    Must be located in a mosquito pit…I don’t mind the style because all styles of homes can be modified to fit its setting.

      “…a mosquito pit…”

      That would be Florida.

    I agree with Grrrowler here. I do appreciate the exterior for being so different from what we normally see in this region, but I can’t bring myself to like it. Inside is extremely busy, and while there are nice details (some of the ceilings/woodwork, etc.) they’re mostly drowned out in the “noise” of the decor.

    This house tries SO hard and it wants to be loved SO bad, but it fails. This looks like some elderly snowbirds from Connecticut decided to bring their taste in homes with them to Florida. And it looks like they used a Florida builder who the last time he has seen a traditional French Country home was in design school. He was in over his head. You can see hints of Mediterranean here and there because he doesn’t know how to do anything else. Same goes for the interior decorator.

    It’s not a terrible home, really. It’s just REALLY out of place. For hundreds of years we’ve been building Mediterranean homes in Florida for a reason. It just works. This is just as bad as wearing sandles in a snow storm. Sometimes stepping too far outside tradition is a bad thing.

    Misplaced design aside, I don’t like the greenhoused indoor pool. Maybe it was a good idea on paper, but it looks like a cheap 80’s restaurant or a biodome. Besides, it’s Florida. Why not have an outdoor pool? The only part I’m happy with is the home theater, but the screen needs to be bigger. And I totally dig the porte-cochere and the portico up front.

      That isn’t glass, it’s screening meant to keep the bugs (and leaves) out while still providing that outdoor feel. A good idea until the next hurricane blows it down.

        Ohhh… wow you’re right. Sorry I had no idea. Makes sense. Thanks for the correction.
