Perhaps it’s because Hollywood is a mere 15 miles away, but this house has pretensions to being one of the great sound stages of film history. For instance, you can make a big entrance in the Big Entrance.
Lead suitably impressed guests into your Untouchably chic speakeasy.
Play at being Cinderella (your choice of dozens of adaptations), fleeing down the castle staircase to evade the lovelorn prince.
Recreate training scenes from Rocky II, III, IV, or V (but not the first one because, hey, he was still poor).
Do what Ferris Bueller would’ve done if he’d really stayed home sick.
Ascend into the heavens (or your neighbor’s yard) via your personal glass Wonkavator. (Um, yeah… the Wonkavator moves sideways, too.)
When you’re ready to come back to earth, you can ground and center (or just take a nap) in your meditation chamber. But watch out that stray sparks don’t catch your hair on fire… Remember, the point is to play at being dramatic, not actually, you know, be dramatic!
Well, this place was made for entertaining. So they can put a chandelier over the bath tub (and all the other over-the-top things), but not a mirror over the sink in the fireplace headboard bedroom?
@Frodo: I’m not seeing a sink in any of the pics. Which number pic are you referring to?
@Emerald63: It’s photo 21, the same photo above with the Buddha picture and fireplace at the head of the bed. You called it a meditation room. That’s probably closer to its purpose than a bedroom. I just noticed the microwave. Maybe someone likes to snack while warming up in their bed next to the fire. But it also looks like hand soap, rubbing oils, hair product, facial scrub or something like that on the counter next to what looks like a sink. I figure if someone has been napping, they might want to check their bed hair at the sink when they get up, especially if it got singed in the fire.
@Frodo: Yes, I see it now. I think I was so transfixed by the Buddha painting – and the weird fireplace – that I didn’t much notice anything else, except maybe the colors. The lack of mirror and the various bottles on the vanity make me wonder if this is a massage venue. Having someone hovering over you would be one way to keep the risk of hair-fires down.
I think pic 21 is a massage room? If it’s not that bed looks uncomfortable. The only think I like is the $2/month hos fees!! Ha
@Frodo: That’s a massage table. It’s a massage room. I have a massage room in my house. Doesn’t everyone? Mine’s not that dramatic, though.
