    I guess almost $4 million isn’t enough to get an enclosed garage. Or any high volume rooms. Or any land. Once again, we have a bacon-wrapped tract house.

      No tract home on earth has ultra fine finishes, fixtures and appliances like this. It does have an enclosed garage and not everyone wants 40 foot ceilings. I sell and finance properties to the wealthy all the time and you clearly have no clue about what they like or want in real estate. I know, I know; it’s just your opinion.

        All he ever does is bellow about high ceilings and land… and anytime he likes a house is horrific. He has the real estate taste of Donald Trump. He also loved this shit box… posted it as an example of a great contemporary home once. Real taste.

          I also hate those useless eggshell bathtubs that are just troughs and don’t do anything else. And I dislike exposed gutters and downspouts that deface an otherwise decent elevation. Don’t overlook that I also rag about flaws in multi-million dollar neighborhoods! Narrow streets, above ground utilities,, poorly kept adjacent properties – all the elements of Barrio Bentley. Speaking of which, did you happen to click on “view larger map” and go to the street view of this listing and see the surroundings? The neighborhood is horrible. BTW, the listing doesn’t mention a garage, just ‘covered parking’ (carport) – but then, we’re only talking $4 million. Whataya expect?

            The problem is you clearly have no understanding of different markets with your comments. Wherever you live, or wherever you think real estate is worth what is asks / sells for isn’t where Homesoftherich is focusing on clearly. I agree with you, that if you want to see architectural significant, quality homes… this blog is NOT the place to be viewing them anymore. It’s gone down hill and is mostly full of cracker box McMansions. But there is an objectiveness to the markets the home are in that establishes their value that you often seem to miss. Yes… the same house in Dubuque Iowa is going to cost no where near what it does in X, Y, Z major metro market.

            I understand different markets, I just value or devalue them according to my own criteria. I’ve owned 7 homes (remodeled 2 of them to my own plans), and built 3 restaurants and 3 retail stores in my long life, and I have a good sense of time and place. I live in a gated and guarded community now, and I see the value, and accept the premium price for doing that. Nice neighborhood -I haven’t had to shoot anybody in the 11 years I’ve been here. You’re not wrong and neither am I – in fact we’re both right because we’re both customers and the default setting is we’re always right and can’t be wrong. And if we are wrong, we still get to win. Everything is in the eye of the beholder and when we behold, it’s all on the table and we accept, reject or overlook at our own discretion – the market be damned. For me, I have certain architectural, material, ornamental, and environmental minimal standards that simply must be met when millions of dollars are asked regardless of where, and it’s a rare thing when a deficiency is one aspect is forgiven even when any other aspect exceeds expectations. In short, to each his own. What’s it like in Dubuque? Do they have super Walmarts?

            I wouldn’t know, never been.
