    The front could have been so much nicer with those balcony railings removed. The ground floor French doors are out of proportion with the upper floor windows, and makes it look unbalanced. Beyond that, it’s interesting looking.

    I quite like the interior. It doesn’t break any decorative new ground, but it looks comfortable and nicely detailed. Some of the spaces need more color, but that would be easily achieved through some good art work on the walls.

    What I like least about it is that it’s in Arizona…

    I would have never guessed this was Arizona. I agree with Grrrowler regarding the balconies – unnecessary and they look like an afterthought. Interior ain’t bad but looks very crowded.

      Desert properties should be landscaped as desert, not in a way that sucks up a huge amount of a very limited resource called water. The landscape architect should be flogged.

      I hate the place.

        Excellent point regarding the landscaping. Sadly all the surrounding houses also have green lawns, that we know take thousands of gallons of (precious) water to maintain. If you want a French country house, why not have it in France?

    To the contrary, I find this home to be a lovely French chateau. It has beautiful architectural elements and I rather love the French country kitchen. I think the architect was masterful in the conception and execution. But of course I am bias towards French Country and Italian Renaissance homes. As for the landscape, I would be lost living in my beloved Southern California without irrigation. I need my green, lush, and tropical outdoors. I truly dislike the stark and arid arid landscape of the desert.

    I think this house is beautifully done. It is different from a lot of homes in Phoenix, which makes it that much more attractive to me.

    I guess I should be used to all of the (unnecessary) judgment in the comments on this site, but I love how people are deciding how others should landscape their yards! And that homes in the French-country style should only be built in France!! So, by extension, Spanish-style homes should only be built in Spain, and Mediterranean homes should only be built on the Mediterranean sea.

      Let me rephrase: If someone wants a French COUNTRY house (with lots of lawns and trees requiring a lot of water), why not have it in the French COUNTRY, instead of a suburb in a desert. Build whatever the hell style house you want wherever the hell you want it, but it seems daft to try to create a fake landscape in a place that can’t naturally support it.

        tis, tis, tis, the man does protest. I am truly thankful I live in the USA where I can water my fake landscape all I want.

      Hey…I guess you didn’t get the memo about the rules regarding comments on the internet. It reads (and I quote) “Internet postings are expected to elicit comments which are contrary to the posted article, Under no circumstances will comments, which are considered relevant or in agreement with the article in question, will be permitted.”

      I don’t think you should comment here anymore if you’re not going to follow the rules.

    The house is horrid. It looks like it was a single story plan that was made into a 2 story and then hey added the hideous braces aka balconies to the front. I would not even bother to go look at it. I could never live in a home that I could not look at from the outside. And I agree, if an area has serious water issues, it is a little selfish to create a landscape like this.

    The home is in an irrigation district where all of the homes get irrigated water, whether they want it or not. It was grandfathered in a long time ago.

    Needless to say, the landscaping is succinct with the surrounding area and lawful to the letter!
