    Well, by no known definitions is something < 3.35 acres anything but a pond. So that's a bit of marketing hyperbole right there. Besides in the aerial view it looks to be shared with 2 other properties.

    I’m trying to look past the very cluttered staging job inside, but it’s difficult to. Without the clutter, it’s just very beige (along with some other unfortunate wall treatment colors). The only room that really appeals to me is the space in picture 6 with the stone wall. There’s just not much happening in terms of detailing in any of the spaces, unless you count some stock molding in some of the rooms. Overall it looks like a designer showhouse done on a budget.

    The outside also looks pretty busy, and the entire front facade is dominated by the entrance portico; it overwhelms the entire rest of the house. The pool area is nice (minus the cast-cement urns), but it can’t save the rest of the house.

    The roof annoys me. Looks like there is some sort of monster attempting to burst out of the house. I bet the interior smells like potpourri.

    I think they are trying tooooooooo hard to be elegent. Tone everything down and you would have a nice house. Also Daniel is point on about the potpourri.

    Hey guys, come on over for beers and we’ll watch the big game down in the game room on the sa-weeet new 30 inch LCD I picked up at Wal-Mart. We got like $30,000 in chairs down there but I couldn’t pass up the $299 TV and even built it in. Boo-ya!

    But overall, I like this place. Good colors and a homey feeling.

      Bwahahahahahaha. I think that’s one of the funniest comments ever made. I can’t imagine that they purposefully did that. I think I’ll hold on to the belief that they ran out of money.

      I have many pet peeves, but one of my big ones is people trying to talk to me during a movie. Or making noise and playing around, distracting me while I’m watching a movie, which is why I’m probably one of the few people who would insist on having a separate and (at least to some degree) sound proof theater room. Card table, pool table and a kitchen right there makes that just a hangout spot, theater seats notwithstanding. For 5 mil, build the home theater room. I can already see myself yelling at the teenagers at the pool table to keep it down I’m trying to watch my movie…on that itty bitty screen.

    I actually really like this house, everything looks good until the BLUE ceiling in the lower level? blue? They tried to take a risk and hope it would look good design-wise, but it just didn’t work. grey would work better on the ceiling, and switch the carpet with darker wood flooring. Everything else about this house I actually like. 🙂

    I absolutely CANNOT get past the infuriating faux window on the facade that grasps at symmetry but fails.

    I don’t mind the house. It isn’t my choice but I don’t see any horror here except the kitchen. I hate it when they pickle wood or whatever you call that washed out finish. If the wood is that bad, why have it at all? It looks like plastic here or something from an army kitchen. It doesn’t look like it belongs in any house going for over a million dollars.

    I liked this until I binged it. It is just crammed onto the lot. If there is one thing they have plenty of in Texas, it is land. I was really surprised to see how this thing was jammed on the lot. And the pond is not really private. It has two other houses right on it. Put this on 10 acres and we might have a deal.

    I don’t think that an infinity pool was a good choice here-it is one thing overlooking a great view-canyon, beach, etc. but the view here is not great. The dining room is tiny and located by the stairs-ugh! I actually like the kitchen. I am not as bothered by the blue ceiling as I am with those God-awful stained glass ‘Deck-o-Card’ lights over the pool table.

    Actually, the front of the house appeals to me – sort of like a storybook cottage. Most of the house seems well thot out. Unfortunately, I only like dark leather furniture and wood/stone floors, so I would need to make some changes.

      OMG, dan. I was trying to figure it out. I kept looking and looking at it saying it reminds me of something. You hit the nail on the head. Storybook cottage. Like if the grandmother in Little Red Riding Hood was rich, THIS is what she would build. Bingo!!!

    I’m fine with the blue, it was obviously an homage to their favorite sports team, so people are allowed to be as hideous as they want to be when it comes to that. And painting it over is an easy and cheap fix.

    I love that they have one staircase, hate doubles, but I don’t like where they put it, smack dab in the middle of the foyer. It’s curved, they could have moved it off center and have the last step toward the middle. That’s still not a deal breaker. What is is that hideous kitchen. It’s just all kinds of wrong. Absolutely nothing in there I would keep.

    $5M house and all they have is that one tiny fridge? Waste of essential storage space in order to keep the wine right at hand. And for that price, I better be seeing Wolf/SubZero, Viking or La Carnue appliances. Jenn Air or Thermador or whatever it is they have there can go into the half a mil house.
    I have no idea wth is going on with the planter at the front with that one piece sticking out and who picked out the cabinets and tile for the master bath. No, no and no. That being said, I pretty much like everything else.
