Was it Lautner or Wright that provided the inspiration (mix) for the tile roof?....it almost looks like they are blue tile?

This is exactly the type of listing that I was thinking about when I posted this thread. I understand the need to communicate an aesthetic but isnt there a more honest way to do it.

This house was clearly designed...who was he/her? Tell us about their work....dont rely on architectural half truths to sell multi million dollar homes.

Ugh. I hate the way the paintings are hung in that one! If you want to display artwork, get a house that allows you to do it or figure something else out. Hanging paintings twelve feet in the air is awful.

AUGH!!!!! Okay, I have to get this off my chest.

I visited three open houses in Corbin Palms today. Not a single one of the agents there had ANY clue that the neighborhood had some sort of historical significance.

One of the houses had been so painstakingly gutted and remuddled from the inside out that I wanted to wait til the owners came by so I could slap them. Not a single clerestory window was left. The agent was quite proud about how the owner had brought the house forward into the 21st century (except, oddly enough, for the bad 1980's kitchen redo).

At the one house that was in somewhat original (though well-maintained) shape, the agent was actually apologetic about it but noted how much potential there was for someone who wanted to come in and "update" the place.

What is wrong with these people???

Granite counter tops have become my pet peeve of late - I used to like the look as it really dresses up a traditional home (but really didn't like them functionally - ever dropped something on one?) - but now I see them in everything and they just appear dated to me. But still, when you see DYI type programs they are always putting in granite. It simply doesn't belong in many homes, in my opinion. Now I've seen some neat effects using rough-edged thick slabs - but that doesn't work in most homes either.

I am so over black granite counters with maple cabinets!

They are the modern equivalent of 70's harvest gold formica counters and dark brown cabinets.

One of my clients with a distaste for granite said, "Bleh, it looks like someone puked on the counter!"

(And don't even get me started on pedestal sinks!)
