    Are you sure this isn’t just a rehab/expansion of a 1950’s tract house? The exterior looks like it was jury-rigged by a series of contractors each doing their own thing. While the interior is fine, it is hard to imagine that a competent/talented architect had even a finger in the design, let alone an entire hand. For almost $15M, is it unreasonable to expect just a modicum of professional design? I guess in the area, you have to go over $15M for that.

    Yuck. Outside and in. Just yuck. What makes the living room and dining room “formal?” They look no different from any other room in the house. In fact, the family room looks grander than the formal rooms. The foyer and staircase are decorated in the “early lobby” style and would look right at “home” in any commercial office building. That ridiculous wine room, with all those empty slots means the owners are either alcoholics and drink it faster than they can stock it, or they’re not really wine drinkers at all and could probably make better use of the space converting it to something else.

    I see no special materials, no extraordinary craftsmanship, nothing but lots of shiny flat panels of varying hues, made of whatever (monumental marlite? FRP? LOL!), illuminated by lots of colored lightbulbs. The whole thing looks bargain-basement. If you see any one room, you’ve seen them all. The lot is tiny, the garage is a joke, altogether this glorified storage shed couldn’t possibly have cost more than a tiny fraction of the laughable asking price. I hope they get a buyer, just so we can all still say, “there’s a sucker born every minute.”

    Love it. Not all of us need to be stuck in over-the-top nuevo-Victorian decor to try to impress. Horselips seems to think that everyone should have his taste. To me, this is perfect…and I’ve seen a few places in my lifetime.
