    It’s stunning, and overwhelming, in a “Domus Aurea” kind of way. I have an outlook much like my dog – sometimes she likes to wander the wide open spaces, other times she likes the tight, closed in space under the desk which is made even more compact by my big feet. No one appreciates 2-story, high volume, monumental rooms as much as this pompous, arrogant, elitist, conspicuously consuming a-hole does, but there are times when an intimate Inglenook or alcove is perfect, and I see no space like that here. Everything is resort-scaled, so while this is a magnificent mansion, I would prefer something designed along a somewhat brief.
    Sorry, but the 2007 price of $35 million is much more realistic, the Zestimate of $23 million even more so.

      I don’t know, that library looks kind of cozy. The first floor also has some more human-sized spaces (not shown here.) The ballroom, in the oher hand, is very intimidating (and weird looking.)

      It should be noted that the $35 millions price was BEFORE the multi-million renovation/extension carried out by Jeff Green, Offenhauser and Hadid.

    Here’s a philosophical question: if you have two piles of dung of unequal size, should the larger one be more expensive because it’s larger? Or should it be cheaper, because what you’re getting is more dung?

      More expensive. Dung is used throughout the third world as a fuel. The French use dung in the making of Roquefort and Blue cheese.
