    It’s definitely big. It’s got a mansard roof. It’s kind of close to the road. I’m trying to think of what else to say about it… It’s big.

      The road that the home is close to is Durham Drive, which receives no through traffic, just residents. I would’ve pushed the home further from Durham just a little bit, but really it’s barely consequential. River Road is the one you want to be set back from, which this home is. I think the placement of the home was a good decision, it sits only slightly closer to River Road than the home they tore down did.

    I really don’t see how the lower level can be 11,000 square feet

    It is not really going to look like this, is it?
    He might want to change the name of his company because masterpiece this is not.
    Also, I am skeptical as to the size of this home.

    This comment system is also working very screwing on my Mac w/Safari in the last few days.

      For me as well. On Chrome the newest posts don’t even show up, unless I clear cookies every day. *Annoying*.

    This POS isn’t worth $1.8M yet alone $18. At least it is not wedged on a 3/4 acre lot.

      Apparently you’re not from the DC area. The raw land is worth quite a bit more than 1.8 million dollars. The home may not be to your (or my) taste, but it’s certainly worth quite a bit.

    He better do a hell of a job on the landscaping. Right now this just looks like a brick box with some details glued on.

    I opened noob’s posting, I noticed a koi pond placed in front of the house, 18 mil sounds good to me. Actually more like 12.75 to 13.5

      Hey! I’m the real Mak here, and that ain’t no Koi pond. It’s a waste water aeration pool. It’s the newest thing in eviro-friendly building techniques for homes that need a little something different to make them special. The odor that it producesl is also perfect to keep the nosey neighbors out of the yard.

      So says the real Mak.

    I’ve become jaded over time and that part of me wants to dismiss this right off the bat. Just for shits and giggles I’ll be naive and say that this has potential. Honestly, it does have potential, it’s just that usually that potential never really comes through in the end. The rendering that noob posted above makes it look half decent, and if it comes through like that I can’t complain. I know it probably won’t, though. The quality of materials is always superb in Niroo’s homes, they’re just usually a bit more bombastic than I’d like. I’d have to reserve judgment until this is finished.

    I do have to say, however, that $18 million doesn’t seem too far out of line, considering the size of the home and the decently sized lot it’s on. That said, a home like this is kind of begging for the “white elephant” label. It’s risky building something like this without a buyer.

    Yes it might be a bit bombastic, but the architecture is actually rather sophisticated for the current DC McMansion scene. At least the inappropriate turret is around on the rear end, and not stuck on front next to to the entrance! Though there are other roof treatments that would be more historically accurate, this mansard has a bit of panache and doesn’t make me want to vomit or anything. And I like that he’s put in a brick wall on the perimeter of the grounds – a feature of old estates that few shell out for these days.
