    I have to say that I love it. I wouldn’t change a thing. OK, I’d rather not live in Thousand Oaks, but beyond that I wouldn’t change a thing.

    I agree, it is a beautiful home. Only change I would make is the living room valence and drapes.

    It’s nice but why is it Landry every year? Puts a cloud over the process. Robb Report can’t find great houses outside of Cali, and by other designers?

      It’s a money thing or a connection thing. Either he pays them a lot of money in various forms of advertising or by referring others who advertise or there is some sort of connection (ie. he is friends with or related to whoever makes this decision in one way or another.)

    Love the house!! The garage entrance is awesome. Apple Maos has it 90% completed. Corner of Potrero and Stafford.

    Pretty awesome house. That garage is pretty amazing. Only two things that are odd is that game room right in the garage, and why have a desk in the bedroom? Surely there is enough extra rooms in the house to put your home office.

    Wow, you guys really like this? Aside from that garage I didn’t care for any of it.

      Thank you, that is exactly what I was going to say! I am surprised by all the positive comments above because I find it fussy and fake. (Faux-Italian but with more Faux than Italian!). It’s not horrible, but I would never consider it a ‘house of the year’. ‘Garage of the year’, maybe…

    Oh, what? I thought it was going to be Château des Fleurs, by Hefner & Finton!

    Though this home is wonderful (as have been the last few Robb Report homes), I wish that the home of the year would have some variations each year. 2013,12,and11 have all been Landry designed French homes with modern touches in California. Landry is an excellent architect, do not get me wrong, I wish there would be some variation (like Dwayne Hagadone’s mansion in 2010).

    Great house, but I just don’t see the awesomeness factor that would make this the home of the year. It has great craftsmanship and fine attention to detail and the decorating is quite nice, if a little cookie cutter. The location is just OK. I am not sure how a house gets designated a Robb Report Home of the Year. Is Robb working with the architects and the contractors?

    I have to agree with Rob, Andrew, and Darryl! I don’t understand why this is The Robb Report’s home of year. Not even close to being a favorite of mine. Definitely not my taste.

    Love this garage! I would want the poker table in the garage so I could “go all in” with that Murcielago and maybe win a few of my opponent’s Ferraris, duh!

    FYI There is a very large and rather odd property on W Portero just Northwest of this property. any info on this? the amount of statues and sculptures on the property is what is so odd to me..

        thanks for the reply! If he has that many statues outside, I can’t even imagine what the inside of the house looks like, ha!

    I can say, I have personally walked this home and it is spectacular! Photos never give the emotions that a property can bring. The home has the most incredible craftmanship I have ever experienced! A true masterpiece!

    Unbelievable home!!! I watched it being built as I live in the development next door. All I can say is, the owners have exquisite taste! I showed the photos to my husband, and he about died when he saw the garage. Just a magnificent home!!!!!
