    I can only imagine that this started with an edict to the architect to “design the coldest, ugliest, most uncomfortable-looking house possible.”

      Okay, whatever the problem may have been, it’s now gone.

      I had tried making a comment to Daniel’s comment earlier. But I seemed to have problems getting my comment posted.

      Anyway, Daniel, if you see this, this is what I was trying to say:

      I think that if the mansion had a little landscaping, that would help a lot. I think they should put a brick patio next to the house, along with some shrubbery.

      Also, I think the property would improve as well if they added a guest cottage next to the water.

        Honestly Al, I’d think it’d just be better if they bulldozed this and planted a couple dozen trees and put in grass. That would be the best landscaping. The architecture is horrendous. Those little windows by the stairwell are prison worthy. Cold, drab, and terribly outdated. A teardown and nothing else.
