At 9,500 square feet, this place is quite the personal palace.

Sadly for you, it has already sold (for $5.6 million). You can still enjoy this sweet video tour of the place, however.

  1. Not a style that answers my personal sense of comfort, but I have to admit that all that stone mass and high ceilings would certainly keep the place breezy-cool – and someone busy full time dusting it… who’s not me, and that’s a comfort. :D

    @anodean: I don’t know that it would be my first choice, either, but it would be fun to try to decorate it. Getting the right balance of impact – not too much or too little decor against that backdrop – would a real challenge. Whoever could do it right would have my admiration.

    As for what’s there already, I like the architecture itself, but the woodwork and cabinetry leave me cold. A lot of the really big homes we see feature bleached wood with “goopy” (overdone) carving. It’s just too fussy and in a lot of cases it really detracts from the rest of the setting. But hey… just one more challenge for whomever decorates!
