Wretched excess!

Many years ago just after the fall of the Berlin Wall, I was assigned to Berlin and, for reasons too complicated to go into here, ended up living in a huge home that was about 5000 sq feet. I had a party one evening attended by a number of former East Germans. Upon entering the home, one woman glanced up the expansive staircase and exclaimed, "What a lovely building. How many families live here?" I have never forgotten that and never will - - what a wonderful statement on the excesses of the modern world.

A clear demonstration that wealth does not come with training wheels.

Great comment, Diane!!!!! :-D Love it. I think this mansion should rent rooms instead, assuming there's 13 bedrooms, that's about $307,623 each, I think 2K a month is more reasonable per bedroom to cover the mortgage and utilities. Ok, the Master Suites (assuming there are more than one) should probably go for more, while the smaller bedrooms with smaller closets might fetch less. Just an idea.

This is of course assuming the mansion has a great, low rate on an 30+ year home loan. :)

When nouveau riche who don't know anything about architecture decide to build a house, they just pick the very tackiest features from every style and throw them together into one hot mess. This house is a perfect example of that.

Dale! Ah! Hahaha! I can see it now, "So, now that you have all this money, what would you like to do with it?", "I want a huuuuuuuge house, with a zillion bathrooms!!!"

Some years ago a very wealthy friend told me that when he first acquired great wealth he was confronted with the unanticipated task of spending portions of it without look foolish - he said it was a great and pleasurable learning experiences in architecture, art and philanthropy. We are represented by our decisions - what does this house about it's owners?

Meh. You're just jealous because you can't afford it.
Joy Charles March 29, 2013 at 02:35 PM
Don't forget that homes like this employ MANY people. The maintenance expenses must be huge and go directly onto the hands of local workers, tradesmen and craftsmen.

Our neighborhood kids used to play 'insane asylum' in this house while it was under construction. interesting house, interesting kids!

So it's excessive. That's forgivable. But it's also ugly, and that is not.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder. also, nothing wrong with promoting hard work and a lifestyle that exemplifies the good life. better off being rich healthy and happy than poor sick and depressed... in your choice lies your success.

Except it's dreadfully maintained. The outdoor pool is full of bullfrogs all summer long - and there are way more mosquitoes than the frogs can eat. The brickwork shows a lot of damage from the earthquake.

couldn't agree with you more!!

South Reston, how gauche!

Wow, I see that most have been drinking their "haterade". These comments crack me up. Most of you commenting have granite counter tops and two or more bathrooms per house and two cars or more in your garage. I guess excess is in the eye of the beholder.

Hugely overdone for our area. That said, how about someone turning it into a lovely B&B or conference center?

When we first moved into this neighborhood and I saw this house, I thought it was municipal building. I couldn't figure out why a municipal building was in the middle of our neighborhood. It is too big for its lot and out of place with the other homes.

Interesting looking at the tax records from the 1996 build date, the number seperate additions made to the residence are amazing - the owners just kept adding and adding and adding - tax value is 1.7 million, asking price is a dream.

It would look a lot better if someone tore down the flying saucer on stilts in the front.
