    You gotta love this home!

      Uhh, actually, I don’t ‘gotta love this home,’ and in fact, I don’t love it at all. According to the listing, there are 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Are we saying there are no powder rooms or pool baths for guests, or worse, that not every bedroom has a private bath? Speaking of baths, would it have broken the builder to install a genuine whirlpool tub in the master? The listing also proudly proclaims parking for one (1) car. But then, most multi-millionaires with families never have more than one car. NOT. A mansion in this price range should provide adequate indoor parking for every vehicle in the family (at least 5 spaces), and additional outdoor space for guests. There should also be a porte cochere for the comfort and convenience of arriving-departing guests. But then, multi-millionaires with families never entertain,, never have dinner parties or overnight guests. NOT. The half acre lot is pathetic. Mansions usually have a few monumental rooms – 2 story foyers and great rooms, lavishly paneled home offices, and beamed, coffered or tray ceilings, but I don’t see any of that here. This dump is a monument to basic drywalling – not an inch of custom millwork to be found anywhere. (Note: just call the interior ‘modern’ or ‘contemporary’ and the complete lack of craftsmanship will be excused.) The euphemistically labeled “living room” is just a widened space between 2 hallways. (picture #2) Lovely. On the good side, the pool, loggia, balcony and alfresco facilities are quite nice. Bottom line: this property forces too many compromises. The home anticipates and accommodates very few of the owner’s eventual or probable needs. For crying out loud, there isn’t even an elevator. They only cost about $40K – an amount hardly noticeable in a $3.7 million price tag (.01%). Location-location-location only carries the ball so far – for this asking price – you still have to provide a decent mansion on an acre+ lot. This is an epic fail.
