    4 Elevators! That’s enough to make me overlook and even forgive the occasional wood floors. I love the Romanesque elevation. In fact, aside from the dropped ceiling over the front door (balconies should never pass directly over the front door), I like the whole mansion.

    13,000+ square feet, 1.5 landscaped acres, not imprisoned in California or New Engfland, and all for just $3.7 million – this estate is a bargain.

      Oops, typo! haha sorry. Meant to say 4 FIREPLACES.

        4 Fireplaces? No prob. That’ll work.

      I know that ‘De gustibus non est disputandum’ and all that, but seriously, how can you not like wooden floors?!? 🙂

        They’re fragile and high maintenance compared with marble or tile, they almost all look alike, meaning dark, whereas stone flooring can be colorful. For what it’s worth, I also prefer tile roofing over shingles. A wood floor can rarely stand on its own merits – it usually requires area rugs.

    As a huge fan of wood floors I would object to them being called high maintenance. (of course you first have to know how to maintain them) They are less expensive to repair and refinish.

    That said, I do agree proper homes should be mostly stone floors. (I dislike tile) Except for the “soft” traffic rooms such as a study/den/library & bedrooms.

    That’s my two cents.
