Even if they gave the place to me for free the annual property tax and maintenance fees would destroy me completely.

too white, I like natural stones/tiles and more sand-tone colors. It's a nice house though.

I could see using it for the servants quarters after building a bigger house.

Schools are nothing special based on rating.

However for one to afford that place, private school / tutors would be expected.

No way. Looks like a OR with all that white. The white marble in particular looks horrible to me. Give me a 3-5,000 sq foot house with a ton of land and I'd be a happy camper.

I like some aspects/elements but too much of it reminds me of some cross between cruise ship and Vegas hotel decor. If I'm gonna pay $4 ~ $5 mill for a spread, I wanna be able to throw rockin parties, shoot some guns, and ride some dirt bikes without complaints from the neighbors. e.g. 30+ acres with rows of trees on each side for some noise deflection and no fucking HOA.

It's a nice house, but I would think that most people with that kind of money would probably just build what they want. I can imagine that there is a frugal millionaire out there that will low ball them on the price and probably get it.

Probably not because of the location.

IMHO the best house would be another http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallingwater

But with the materials we have now.

Seems kinda cheap, but obviously location location location. Similar property would probably be 3-4x here.

I think it is a nice house and better than most pro athlete houses I've seen. The one thing it desperately needs, however, is some color -- way too much white.

$5M for a house where Kenyon Martin lived? Nope.

Agree. As I said in the first post, no weirdo/strange/odd things inside the house.

If I have the money, I would buy a nice house about 2K sq ft with big yard and trees for privacy.

I would get the same house as the vampire family house in the movie Twilight.

The Taxes are a huge liability.

This is the kind of home you would only own if you liked entertaining and parties. It seems a little too large and opulent. It seems a bit overdone for the area it is in. I agree that some of it is just too white. A little off-white or sand colored stucko on the wall might look better, even if it was a an imitation wall treatment.

Everyone's commenting on the colors and decoration, but if you've got enough money to buy the place, you also have enough money to redecorate it...
