    Lovely architecture and quality stone construction, but why bother with such a plain-vanilla interior that doesn’t reflect in any way an almost $400/square foot price. No exquisite joinery – paneling or cabinetry. No decorative interior stone or brickwork. No architectural embellishments like arches, columns, complex moldings, domes or vaults, All the public rooms are squashed under low 10 foot ceilings. The windows are as plain as can be. Seven bedrooms – suitable for either a big family or lots of overnight guests, but only a 3 car garage and no porte-cochere. No land to improve. No outdoor facilities – no covered loggia or outdoor kitchen, not even a pool – just an exposed patio with a fireplace (?!?). No luxury features like an elevator or a whirlpool tub in the master bath. For almost $4 million, I expect more than a monument to low expectations.
