    I don’t have strong feelings about it one way or the other, but I think architects need to be very careful about porte-cocheres. When out of scale, they just look ridiculous. It’s interesting the marketers are avoiding a straight-on full frontal of this house. Could that be the reason? Why does it need to be so big? You could hold 6 stretch limos under that thing. How many dignitaries do they think are going to arrive at once when it’s raining or snowing? Which, honestly, it doesn’t very often in that part of Idaho – that’s why they call it – duh – Sun Valley!

      I think it maybe the angle of the picture that makes it look so big. If you look at the floor plans from the home’s website it looks like you can get maybe two cars under it. Link to floor plans below.

      Yeah but if you ARE in Idaho, I think this “fancy western ranch” architectural style actually makes more sense than a lot of other options.

    It’s funny someone said architect in relation to this home. It strikes me that an architect drew up the original plan, then it looks like the home owner took over. Or worse, this is one of the house plans from a book you buy at home depot for $9.99. In either case, this house is in need of refinement and better finishing. Normally this occurs when the architect isn’t involved throughout the entire construction process.

    Gives me a strange and nebulous feeling of nostalgia, because when I started browsing luxury home blogs many years ago, long before HomesOfTheRich existed, it was mostly this kind of houses that you would find featured on the early blogs (like Luxist.com).
    Especially stuff like the green kitchen counter and the sort of minimalistic, almost barren looking bowling alley remind me of those times.
