There are parts of this Estate that I absolutely love and there are also parts that I think are horrid and need to be ripped out! To start things off can somebody please explain to me why they have a patio cover at the front entrance of the home made to look like a Porte Cochere?? It doesn’t look too hideous but it kinda says “we couldn’t afford a standard Porte Cochere,” however in their defence it does look custom made since it matches the awnings on the house? Who knows – I don’t like it though. Onto the Great Room with the striped ceilings – what is this a circus? That’s the feeling I get while looking at that room. The Stripes NEED to go.
The Master Bedroom is definitely not to my taste however it has such a unique design which makes it kinda cool looking, I wouldn’t want to sleep in there but it is a cool room. I was expecting a more High End Kitchen based on the Exterior of the home but was let down with this Medical Staff Room? The Fridges are somewhat dated and the cabinetry is way too sterile, there’s basically 0 style to be had in that Kitchen – sorry. You might be asking yourself what I do like then? Well I love the Office Space. It’s genius to have 3 Plasma Screens mounted on the wall in a row – it’s so me. I also like how most of the Windows in the home are floor to ceiling.
The Main Areas of this Estate that I like are the Exterior spaces. The Resort styled Pool with shooting fountains, the lovely gates surrounded by perfect gardens and those gorgeous Golf Course Views. I also really like homes that incorporate Metal roofing rather than any other standard Roofing Materials. The question is would I buy this home? Yes I probably would, even with all the negatives I think in person I would change my mind instantly lol!
