Here’s a find from Burbed reader, now promoted to Burbed Guest Editor, sonarrat. However, sonarrat asked me to handle this one because of a particular feature set, and no, it is not the little gold star this house somehow has earned from Redfin.

What makes a home grand? Is it a 4400 square foot house in the middle of a bunch of hundred year old scrapers? Is it having twice as many bedrooms or baths as a typical family needs, or even wants? How about twice the kitchen or twice the master suites?
No, while these things may make the house ostentatiously oversized, only one feature allows a house to call itself grand, and I’m sure you remember what it is.
Dat’s right! Mawbul kawlums! But this house goes one better than that. Not only is it a stucco box that found room for six a dem dings, it has marble floors, too!
This has got to be the first time I’ve seen a house with marble columns manage to look like a 1960s cracker box.
But hey, it’s got a huge parking lot for many cars, because the 3 car garage is obviously not enough. (Wow, did the builder run out of money and not bother matching the garage doors? Or is this some political commentary saying the Right has its eyes closed?)
I’m glad they included this shot of the parking lot, or I would have suspected they just paved the entire quarter acre lot to save money on pesky greenscaping.
Definitely what happened. Can’t say there isn’t anything green out here.
Picnic table: definitely green.
So. Let’s move on. You can check out the two full kitchens yourself, I assure you they have the obligatory stainless and granite. Instead, how about this listing history?
Yes! Marble columns, flip, AND foreclosure! Isn’t that grand? Let’s check with Zillow on those missing listing prices.
