    Interesting post! The first home ( the circle one ) is up the block from my friends fathers home. Its interesting to see how this house is decorated.. so very 80’s! The back yard property is superb though! Lovely.

    The mansion with the ice cream parlor I actually installed carpeting in when it was being built by its original owner. The house has an indoor pool, and secret passages! ( VERY cool! ) Privacy does not even come close to explaining how secluded this home is.. While there for the week we worked on it we were most struck by the fact that nowhere from the home could you see anything but nature! Not another home within view! ( perhaps that’s changed.. though I don’t think so.
    Also of interest is the landscaping.. was a reported 3 million dollars! I suspect that this house cost more to build than it just sold for.
    The spiral staircase ( not show ) was built using a solid piece center column.. all custom. The Ice cream parlor is swathed in marble. The list goes on and on.

    What Im most surprised about with these homes is the photography.. I think these realtors NEED me. I make properties look like millions more than they are already worth! 🙂

    Your experience at these homes is quite a treat, thanks for sharing the stories and some extra insight!
    I agree with you regarding the photography. Having professional pictures taken of a property is crucial to a marketing campaign of a home. I’m a big believer in marketing and presentation especially when it comes to luxury real estate.
    Thanks for stopping by Jason!
