And now for what we discovered! First, the minute we walked in, we were stunned to see that the place was set up like an art gallery. This was a surprise for a couple of reasons. First, Open Houses are there to showcase the real estate, not the décor, and second, the comments on several of the stories we linked to on Sunday implied that the listing photos were a little, um, minimalist. Which is a fancy way of saying lots of white paint and little else.
It turned out that not only were most of the sculpture and paintings in the house labeled as if we were in a gallery, they were for sale and the painter and her daughter were there to talk to any interested patrons. The sculptor was her mother (not present). The least we could do is link to their website and show a couple more works of art. Then we could remember that we’re a real estate site, not a fine arts portfolio. And then we could not say anything about the art as our readers excel at critical commentary. Especially the critical part.
You can check out the listing photos if you want to see the major public rooms and some shots from the master suite. We’re going to show you what they didn’t. On your left is detail from the music room, and we don’t think this is where they invited the string quartets to play Mozart. Also the agent helpfully pointed out that this counts as a bedroom, as it has a closet. The doorway on your right is off the music room and leads to one of a large number of baths. We’ll get back to them later.
Those baths, the kids’ secret playspace, the cave, and much more await when you click on through!
