    Oh boy……….that is one awkwardly elongated house. The details seem off everywhere, from the sentry guard towers overlooking the prison yard, I mean, the backyard, to the national chain restaurant which has opened in the octagonal pavillion, to the plain loft-like old brick fireplace wall in the formal living room and the peculiar use of victorian stock moulding trim throughout the house, it’s all just very strangely finished.

    So it started as like a 3 bedroom 2 bath home worth 300K. Then they added….some crap.

    There is no doubt it my mind that this house is going to be panned by the interior decorators among us, it never the less would be a great house to have fun in. This place was created to have party after party in. I myself would not be interested in it, but a lot of fun and great memories could be had here. Maybe rather that always with the bitchy coment, try to see the good side in something.

      I couldn’t agree with you more George. Well said. 🙂

      Plus, if it wasn’t meant for parties, they wouldn’t have had as much hardwood floors that are much easier to clean than carpeted floors.

    This house is priced at probably 10X the next most expensive house in this town, and it is too ridiculous to actually even comment on further. BUT, the Party Pavilion is fantastic. One of the best I can ever recall seeing. (Kenny, how ’bout a post on Party Pavilions???)

    Now that I think about it, this should probably be marketed as an event/banquet facility as it is too embarrassing for anyone to actually occupy permanently.

    The front of this house bears resemblance to a mcmansion you can find in any new suburb. The back side even appears to have siding. Those towers are especially awful. I guess few have a sense of style anymore.

    I think they actually planned to use the pavilion as a rental hall. It doesn’t make sense for any other reason.

    It looks like your typical cookie cutter house in picture #3, then it looks like they just threw that long, awkward wing on there. I do agree it looks like a great party house, and IMO the interior seems livable.

    I apologize in advance, George and Al…I can’t be as charitable as you.

    Just when I thought my mind had already been sufficiently blown by heinously bad real estate, this piece of shit comes along. I’ll try to be brief:

    – When you have the money to aesthetically rape an unassuming existing home (especially one that’s barely 7 years old to begin with), why don’t you just build something from scratch to your specifications? Adding onto an existing house will always be a compromised project.
    – Where the hell is the focal point of the front of this monstrosity supposed to be? A split-second glance at this home might have you believe it’s a row of townhomes. Add to that the lack of any kind of architectural style and it’s a disaster.
    – The interior? No style whatsoever.
    – The backyard bar’s a nice idea, but you’re telling me I have to walk outdoors, possibly in the rain (or snow or whatever) just to get to the damn place? And how is it that it looks to have dated 20 years when the damn house wasn’t even there till 2005?

    Really I’m only getting started, but you get the idea.

      Way too go Nova Ben!!!

      One can have a party in any house and any party is dependent upon the people present not the size or style of ones house or how much money you threw down the drain building it. Great times can be had on a barren sandy beach. It doesnt take building a catering facility in your backyard to have a great party in, especially one that is as awkwardly located and monstrously out of scale with the home itself. This place is simply awful and ill conceived.

      Oh I commented too soon…………….didnt read the comments from Barney yet!

    This “home” is the architectural equivalent of EXACTLY what a healthy, COMPLETELY WRONGFULLY CONVICTED poor victim of the Salem Witch trials looked like AFTER they were BURNT TO A CRISP. It’s 1980’s, CHEAP formica-restaurant HORRIBLE, and I’m eternally convinced that STEVIE WONDER could’ve designed a more attractive home, ALL BY HIMSELF.

    And speaking of HORRIBLE……WHO ARE THE MORONS WHO 1.) Took the photos and 2.) UNBELIEVABLY APPROVED SAID PHOTOS. The exterior shots of this inbred nightmare look like something you’d see after you bumped into Lucy, while in the sky with diamonds (SORRY, Beatles!) THIS, my friends, is what happens when you PAY A VERY BAD PHOTOGRAPHER (what was most likely) a hefty sum to take & edit photos. Every photo (execept for the satellite/aerial shot) of this house is HIDEOUSLY OVER SATURATED with color to the point of utter ridiculousness.

      I don’t KNOW I think that SOME OF the parts of this HOUSE are interesting BUT IT LOOKS like it was STAGED WITH cheap furniture for photos only. The PARTY PAVILION does look like a CHILIS or a TGIFRIDAYS, so I wouldn’t HAVE anything LIKE that ON any HOUSE I would OWN. Know WHAT I mean?

    Oh my god!!! This home looks like it became as big as it is by a million additions ! The kitches looks like crap…the entire home doesn’t have anything that makes it luxurious it’s just a normal home with a lot of additions…

    I think it actually is a whore house. No, really! It totally looks like a place you would find a lot of fat, white guys with cigars and their “girlfriends” hanging out.

    FOUR laundry rooms? That’s almost one laundry room for every two bedrooms, which means someone is washing a LOT of sheets. Thirteen entrances? It only makes sense if you have people coming and going all the time.

    Yep, it’s a whore house.
