    Not a fan. The exterior has way too many conflicting design elements – infinity pool in the front yard, angled entry, odd and random window sizes, barely there landscpaing, etc. Interior is boring.

      Until I read your comment, I didn’t realize that the pool was actually in the front yard. Major points off for that.

    I wonder what Tuscans think about our obsession.

      Probably roughly what I think about anything on MTV. Which would be a blank stare with a question mark floating above my head.

    I think the exterior will look better after it ages somewhat. It needs a patina, and the plantings need to mature somewhat. It looks too new right now, and I would have appreciated if the builder had tried to age it somewhat. It wouldn’t have taken that much more time or cost that much more money, but it would have made a big difference.

    The interior is simple, and I like that. I also like that it’s not a recreation of a Tuscan farmhouse, but a somewhat modern interpretation of such. Whoever staged this gets points off for making it way too beige, but that could be fixed. I think the room sizes are nice and have enough detailing to provide a good basis for a proper interior design. The spaces have a definite California feel to them, and feel nicely relaxed. I do hate the light fixture in the kitchen, and in fact am not enamored with the kitchen in general.

    That has to be one of the worst new kitchens-that light fixture reminds me of kitchens back in the 70’s-complete with dark wood. The whole house is a mess. Interior looks like crap staging furniture and bad art. Fugly infinity edge pool. What were they thinking when they painted the tennis court foundation red? Easier to find in a mudslide?

      “The whole house is a mess.”

      That just about sums it up.

      I’m glad somebody else commented on that awful lighting in the kitchen. I had to double back and check to make sure this really was a new-build…that one feature almost cancels out ALL the other things in the house that make it look new.

    Pool in the front is like a joke from the movie ‘Animal House’

    I don’t wanna seem overly dramatic, but the pool in front of the home is a deal-breaker for me. If I were in the market for a high-end home in this area (which I never would be anyway) and my realtor drove me to this house, I’d tell him to turn the hell around as soon as I saw that.

    I’m sorry…but Neo-Tuscan / Faux-Med has been done to death in California.To the point where it has come to stand for NONDESCRIPT MC MANSION. I’m actually OK with the pool out front.Lots of that along hillsides in LA.Here-however…it does’nt look to blend in with the house.A result of the smallish glass I guess.
