    I keep thinking I have my gag reflex under control, and then something like this shows up.

    Sadly, I’m old enough to remember when “opulent” couldn’t be used anonymously for “garish”, but in this case it sure can. There isn’t a comfortable seat in the house, until the master bedrooms shows up that is. But, the master bedroom is so appallingly ugly that I’d rather be forced to sit on any of the uncomfortable-looking chairs and settees than to spend any time in that room. I do like the art nouveau-ish library; with better furniture it could be very pretty. As for the rest of the house, I’m sure it will make a newly-rich Russian with delusions of being royalty very happy.

      You bitch and whine about every single house ever posted on here. It’s lame, get over yourself.

        If you don’t like what I write, don’t read my comments. There’s a scroll bar on the right side of your web browser you can use to go past them, and not have to trouble yourself reading my bitching and whining. The Page Down key also works.

          I, for one, happen to love Grrrowler’s commentary. Please, bitch and whine away.

          • Grrrowler

            Thank you. I’m glad that someone enjoys my bitching 🙂

            I’m still trying to figure out who in their right mind would willingly defend this house. When I saw it, my first thought was, how does an agent show it with a straight face? What kind of adjectives could she use to make it palatable. How many synonyms can she find for “interesting”, “different” and “unique”? Can she use the word craptacular?
            I mean really, take one good look at that bathroom. There’s less marble in a mausoleum. How do you soak in that tub without feeling entombed?

          It’s a pretty crappy house, your comments are well justified.

      • Eric

        Bitch and moan?

        My good sir… We are far better than that, give us some credit!
        We CRITIQUE! We do not just level simple snide comments upon such Gargantuan Grandiose Gaudiness! We are far more artful than that! We are fine tuned Mansion CURMUDGEONS here, not some rank Amateurs!

        Bitch and Whine, the very idea! ((Puts Monocle back on his face))

        Don, I admit me can be hard on some of these houses at times, but of all the homes to go to bat for, THIS is the one you choose? This? An ode to marble and poor use of space?

        This house is a lovechild produced when new money and bad taste form an unholy union.

    Holy 1991, Batman!

    A very strange house. Very awkward room details. Master bath/mausoleum is my favorite part.

  • Mak

    I say let them eat cake.

  • Teddi

    I think I’m starting to like these homes. They’re growing on me. Well, okay, maybe not the homes, just their shear audacity and pomposity. Who knew so many people had Donald Trump-syndrome. Every time I see one of these I can actually picture the homeowner screaming “I’m rich, bitch!”

    These are people who absolutely know they don’t have good taste, so their plan is a one-two punch of SHOCK & AWE to leave you speechless. I think they figured if they couldn’t have good taste, they were going to have the best bad taste they could. How is it possible not to love that?

    Yeeesh! I never even bothered with the inside. I mean, it’s almost rude when the visitor has to climb up 20 steps just to get to the freakin’ front door!

    @ Don – Actually, there WERE 3 homes that Grrrowler liked!……..
    or was it 2? LOL

    • Grrrowler

      Hey now…no bitching and whining about making visitors climb stairs. That’s MY job and I will not be usurped!

  • Bill_in_NY

    Awww, c’mon,……..I did say “almost”! :lol
