    The location within Ft Laud is good, but the house itself leaves me cold…very cold in fact. This does not say “laid back tropical casual elegance” to me. Instead, it says “Don’t put your feet on the coffee table, and use a coaster!!!” It’s too dark, too stuffy, too heavy, too cold, and too somber. The white marble floor, or specifically the pattern, sets my teeth on edge. I’m not sure I’d want an authentic style pub in my house; who wants a bunch of drunken Englishmen throwing darts and drinking warm beer in their family room?!

    On a scale of 1 to 10 I’d rate this as a solid “blech”.

    I’m a bit more forgiving of this than Grrrowler. I for the most part like the exterior and interior. Sure, a lot of the furnishings would need to go (the living room does look very unwelcoming), but I think it has good bones. I think the photos have been darkened, on top of being taken at night. I like the neighborhood, and I think it is somewhat realistically priced – maybe we’ll see it go for a tad under $10 million.

    On a side note, if you want to see the almost identical house just in Boca, click on the projects page Kenny provides above. The rear of this home and the one in Boca are carbon copies.

    I hate the kitchen. The floors in the kitchen are a mess-ever try refinishing wood and stone combination floors? The dark beadboard ceiling makes no sense. Plus the kitchen table (former dining room table before the owners made their millions and moved into this house)makes me laugh. The placement of the bar/stools forces guests’ backs to be turned to the family room and miss out on the million dollar back view. Of course I hate the freestanding master bath tub- no place to put your loofah and bath oil to debride and nourish sundried Florida skin. Other than that and the big powerline telephone pole in the front side yard I think the place is nice.

    This seems to me to be a perfectly normal, very, very formal house. Not my cup of tea. This looks like it belongs in Holmby Hills, not Fort Lauderdale, but to each his own. This should sell to a very rich old lady with big rings. The only problem with it is the filthy, filthy Englishmen who might want to show up.

    Yeah, I don’t really comment on interiors unless something stands out. It is a little cold. But the exterior, by Florida standards, strikes me as having a rare elegance and reserve.

    Too formal for me. The only rooms I like are in pics 6, 8, & 12

    This isn’t bad overall, and I think I’d like it even better with better photographs. The dark wood ceiling in the kitchen is extremely overbearing and needs to be changed, but otherwise this is a nice place. I appreciate the avoidance of the typical double bridal staircase too, I think this one suits the home well.

    Love Ft.Lauderdale! Hottest gold diggers on the planet flock there right about now.Hopefully to meet the owner of this beast. It’s serious overkill.I’ll take a smaller/ better designed house and a bigger boat any day…over this.
