    Saw this listing when it hit the market. Was wowed by the exterior, but disappointed when I saw inside. Not a fan of overuse of dark wood. Personal preference.

      Agreed. Love the exterior…the interior not so much :-/

    18 acres and they couldn’t do anything better with the garages than make them a focal point of the front? The exterior stone looks good up close, but from a distance it looks like it has a pox. I actually like the interior, minus that very unimaginative furnishings. I hate the enclosed banister on the stairway in pic 8, but I like that “baronial” style of many of the rooms.

      I was thinking the same thing. All that space and they just had to do a front facing garage. What are these people thinking?

        Grrrowler, you crack me up. Pox? LOL! I actually like it. It’s definitely different and unusual which I appreciate since the design of the house is neither different nor unusual.

        But yes, Doug, it was the first thing I thought when I saw it. Why a house that grand would have the garages front and center is beyond me. Really ridiculous. And I’d fire that interior decorator.

    Gorgeous house and the property is fantastic. This seems like a really good deal for the money.

    The garages are like that because they are double deep and you can drive straight through them. A few of my friends have the same set up, pretty nice, I like it.

      I get what you’re saying, but they can still do drive-thru garages without it being at the front of the house.

        Yeah I’m all for the ultra convenient drive- thru garages. But: a) there’s plenty of room on the property to stick the garages in a less prominent location and b) double deep garages aren’t even “nescesary” with so much property. There’s ample space for a six far garage as opposed to three “double deep” ones. Or for a larger garage with one entrance and one exit. I mean front facing garages take away from the architectural integrity of the front facade. They are totally ridiculous any time the size or shape of the property prohibits the placement of garages anywhere else.

    Like the exterior, love the dark interior. Looks very authentic. The stairway in photo 8 reminds me of a playground slide.

    The exterior could be more colorful, and as for the interior it is extremely masculine and overwhelmingly dark. It could use some better lighting. No doubt very depressing.

    The architecture is both grand and romantic, and the interior is a monument to fine joinery and real class. It listed in 2015 for $4.5 million with no takers, so I wonder what upping the asking price will do. But then, I look at all that fine cabinetry, windows, moldings, and paneling, and wonder if such craftsmanship even exists anymore, at any price.
