    I really like the house so much… Would be interested to see how much wear-n-tear those stone tiled floors in the living room have. They looked a little bit uneven. Like they are coming up. Really like the outdoor spaces, and the rooms look pretty big as well.

    Beautiful home, but one of the more odd decor choices I’ve seen.

    • MaryEdith

      Ha, I was just about to type “that’s some weird-ass decor.” So many oddly-placed couches and weird color/texture/style combinations

      • Bloomingdalian

        These people clearly never watch “Selling New York”

        This house has some amazing spaces but it looks sooooooo tired.

        *sigh*….

        The sad thing is that all these gaudy finishes cost a fortune – would have been better spent on a vacation home!

    Man, I would jump on that if I had the change. Spend another 500k to get the kitchen and bathrooms up to snuff and clean up some of the other rooms.

  • alphatango

    $3 million house and they still have a tube TV? Who are these people!?

    • mer

      BARBARIANS!

      • 14th St Heights

        Working too much and have no time for TV. Or that gracious house.

    • Denizen of Tenallytown

      People who don’t care about the latest gadgets. I know a few wealthy people that drive old cars, have beat up cell phones, and wear clothes that have been long out of style. (But then they’ll blow 20 grand on a vacation to South America without batting an eye.)

      Does it surprise people that these houses are owned by insanely rich old ladies? Rich old ladies have tube TVs and striped wall paper.

    • victoria

      People with good art instead of flat screens.

  • CE

    Beautiful architecture, but the interiors feel…vaguely depressing? I love the outdoor spaces, though.

  • herewegoagain

    I would like to have a couch in my kitchen.

  • pond

    on a rainy day like today i’d only pay 2million.
