indarwinsshadow: We're a funny bunch of stranger here on fark, aren't we? On one hand, most of us being from United States or Canada, we fully support the western democratic lifestyle of capitalism. Everyone likes having money. On the other hand, as soon as articles like this get greenlit, out comes the negatives about over spending, how opulence and decandence are wrong like we're all die hard communists, and because they've succeed, they must be assholes.

I get it, and I don't get it.


All I see are people criticizing their aesthetics.  Not all rich people are beyond reproach, you know.  Some of them blow all their money on gaudy monstrosities. We funny strangers make fun of that sort of thing.  You contrarians need us in order to survive.

Ima4nic8or: If I ever win the lotto I am going to buy a house like that. Myself, the wife and kids will each have a room.  The remaining 6 bedrooms will be occupied by18 year old girls; one blonde, one brunette, one redhead, on asian chick, one latina and one negress.  They will all love anal and facials.  Each will be replaced upon turning 19.  The wife will go along with this since I will be rich.


She will divorce you, and you will not be rich anymore.

isn't that bad as far as archutecture goes. Could do with a bit less stonework around the pool but not too bad. Inside though it needs a lot less ornamentation and old (or repro) stuff.

But $20mil won't buy you a lot in the swankiest places in London. But then Atlanta isn't in the same class as London or New York

Democracy and capitalism have almost nothing to do with one another, in fact they're polar opposites in several ways. Democracy means everyone has a say--governing power is (in theory) distributed uniformly. On the other hand, capitalism ensures the means of production go to those with the most money, economic power is distributed unequally.

To be honest, I find our societal acceptance of distributing governing power equally but economic power (extremely) unequally to be kind of odd.

Our company deals with some folks who have made their money in the US "financial services" industry. The homes make the European palaces look shoddy. Also, how many yachts does one family actually need?

I know several people who have 3 kitchens.  The main one, the basement one and the BBQ area that grew into a full kitchen.  With the way real estate people count, a sink and fridge in a work shed might count as a full kitchen too.

JungleBoogie: What would warrant that house increasing in price nearly 1000% percent? Make the mortgage loan, sell it to the government, pocket a tidy fee, and you don't have to care why. But... if you're curious about what's going under the hood, why the economy is in the shape it's in, it would be an interesting investigation.


Maybe they spent the difference in crown molding and gold leaf?

Welcome to the real estate bubble:

1) Location is 490 West Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30305

2) Per Zillow, the house was sold for $2,740,000 in 2004, at 68 dollars per square foot. In 2009, it was put on the market for 25 million dollars, or 625 dollars a square foot. And it's been sitting since.

Its not about size. Big is fine. But when you insist everything needs to be wrapped in gold leaf, you may as well be building a soundstage for the Beverly Hillbillies.

Glendale: [i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x420]

Someone went cheap on the tiny-ass screen for a "theater" room, among other things wrong with that picture. It doesn't seem to be designed as a functional theater room for the purpose of enjoying movies.


Exactly what I was thinking, it's almost like the designer said to him/her self, "Hey, what do rich people have in their houses, ooo a theater.  Yea."

Can you imagine being the farker in the back row, right-most chair?

Betcha it has a freestanding popcorn machine though.

Nice curtains on that movie theater.  Who doesn't love annoying rays of sunlight filtering in?

I do like the pool area though, with a bit of work you have a nice piece of old world charm.  However combined with the indoor areas it is just tacky.  The real issue seems to be there is no single "wow" room there.  It is just a bunch of square footage decked out with other the top decor that combines together to put the price tag up.

I would not feel comfortable in all but a few of the rooms in that house. I never find "gilded everything" to be very inviting.  I'd be spending most of my time in the recording studio and by the pool, not in the rest of the Museum of Gaudy.

Sure wouldn't turn it down, though.

How can we be envious of our finical overlords when they have the same tastes as our out-of-work hairdresser cousin?

So really? Everyone is all butt hurt about this house... Someone who had the money, bought a house and furnished it as they wanted. Regardless of taste, it's THEIR money, not yours. Who the f*&$ is anyone here to criticize? So it's not your taste, it made the owner(s) happy.

I've lived in a few houses like that. You might think it's all rainbows and roses. But consider the agony of waiting 15 min for the serfs to arrive with the gestatorial chair! It's so hard to clean, I had to hire out of work tornadoes! And every day, Scientology tards would come to the gate asking "Does Ron live here?"
