This house is incredible.
I’m just not sure that it’s all the good kind of incredible.
Is that furniture in the home theatre… glowing?
Classy! That’s exactly what I would want hanging over my living room.
Okay, that pool is definitely the good kind of incredible. Can’t say I’ve ever seen such a fancy, upscale pool in a private residence before.
All this can be yours for only 77 million dollars!
I would not have expected the contemporary interior given the (I think) early 20th century exterior. For the most part it works; it certainly is a good job of contemporary anyway. I don’t know about that bathroom, though… Maybe if I were a super model… and really vain… but I repeat myself. Too bad the featured painting doesn’t resemble a super model more. I was thinking it was perhaps a Picasso (an original even, considering the home’s price tag), but then I checked out the full screen images. Nooo… too Morticia Addams for him.
Other oddities… the similarly cubist kitchen and dining room chandelier, the massive (and did I say massive) brick stairway off the back terrace, and the aforementioned “glowy” cinema furnishings (velveteen, I believe). And what’s with that dining room being one floor and no adjacent staircase removed from the/a kitchen? Or the 2nd floor bedroom with no bathroom access? (Check the “floorplans” link to the right of the listing images.
I do like the Blue Willow bedroom though, and the “summer house” is to die for. I prefer Ron Howard’s indoor pool, though. But since I don’t have the $77M(!!!) to buy it, I don’t suppose it really matters. Nice to look at though…
@Emerald63: “Morticia Addams” – nailed it. That painting will have to go.
This place has been kept up-to-date, but the floor plan does reflect its age in the lack of sense, re: dining room being so far removed from the kitchen and bedroom with no accessible bathroom nearby.
I did wonder at the art of putting pillows in the fireplace in what I think is the library.
Whoa! Time gets away from me once school starts. I like the estate agent crouching behind the camera in that all-mirror bathroom.
@MsWildhack: Rather difficult to hide oneself in a mirrored room, eh? Best of luck with your studies. Stop by when you can; it’s always nice to have more people. :D
