I loathe modern style, it's like a picture with the contrast slider set to zero.

I feel like there should be a walking bridge over the lake between the two homes.

We have a friend whose parents quit their humdrum jobs, started a business and became wealthy.  They went out and bought a ridiculously large house, because, why not, they're millionaires now.  After a year or so, they sold it - they hadn't anticipated how laborious it was to walk around such a monstrosity on a daily basis.  "Oops, left my phone by the bed - be back in ten minutes."

54 million is waaaay more than it takes to get two girls at once.

I've nothing against mansions (I'd like one myself), but this thing is just soulless. It's not ugly, its just...meh. For $54 mil I want something interesting.

Does the price include the pile of cocaine on the desk and the "little friend" M-16 with the grenade launcher?

Naido: 54 million is waaaay more than it takes to get two girls at once.


If you want Putins daughter and Ivanka at the same time ... might be about right.  You'd be way better off paying me half that amount to make you think you'd succeeded at lining that evening up, though.  With enough drugs you won't be able to tell, and they'll do anything you want.  Anything.  And I'll make sure you think it happened.

You're ok with implanted memories and electroshock and chemical therapy, right?

That's the kinda place you rent on airbnb and throw an epic keggar party at. Wouldn't want to live there, but would most definitely party there. Live band in each house, some bumper boats in the lake and pool, bring it.
 
2022-08-09 9:55:54 PM  
Well no HOA fee so it's got that going for it.

Designed by twin brothers so pretty close.  Lake between houses is supposed to be the gemini symbol
 
2022-08-09 9:59:53 PM  
Definitely need some go-karts and setting up a course on the driveways.

/or spending the money to build a dedicated track somewhere in the 11 acres

Jeez, talk about sterile. You could perform open-heart surgery in there. Bland, boring.

Its a well-known axiom that taste is an inverse proportion to wealth.

Not in Florida.  You'd need scuba gear for a tunnel.

Jizz-knee at least attempts to be cheerful.

Right? For $54 million, Id be having my own place built to my own spec, style, location, and taste instead of buying someone else's cookie cutter masterbatory conspicuous consumption fantasy.

It's never gonna be the Sagal Twins, is it?

How much staff do you need to employ for the upkeep / lawn work for a place like that?
 
2022-08-09 10:07:33 PM  
Echoing 'who lives like that'? Two really reach families? One's a guest house? Not seeing it...

Hoopy Frood: How is that a "single family residence" when there are two houses?


How it's classified with the municipality presumably.  There are two structures, but one address (instead of something like 123 Random Street #1 and 123 Random Street #2).

Hoopy Frood: How is that a "single family residence" when there are two houses?


Separate houses makes for a happy marriage. I saw a giant NYC penthouse with his and her wings. The couple were estranged, but like poorer people, could not afford to leave each other totally,

In this case its even better because you can keep an eye on each other with a telescope and parabolic dish,

The husbands and the wives
Of this select society
Lead independant lives
Of infinite variety.

Built by John Hammond?

Lose the dino lab in the basement and I'm in.

For fellow Floridians - one of the brothers is Robert Lewin.  Otherwise known as the man responsible for the 1800-411-pain commercials.

Everything can be rented or leased. That's how so many millions of people live way beyond their means, and have for a couple or three centuries or so.  In 19th century America, many rich people lived in hotels without buying even the big house. Read your classic authors, especially satirists and comic writers.

It seems right that the TV has a movie about a blind man.

BigMax: Who lives like that?  Mortimer and Randolph Duke?


I could see a very well off couple doing something like this...   I've seen the redneck version (two double wides on a 5 acre lot) and it seemed to work for them.

"bland" is what came to mind.

Mycroft_Holmes_IV: How do they manage to make expensive look that crappy?  Was there a Trump involved?


"bland", not "vulgar"
 
2022-08-09 10:25:50 PM  
It reminds me of one of those fancy "all inclusive" resorts.

New Rising Sun: here are two structures, but one address (instead of something like 123 Random Street #1 and 123 Random Street #2).


The "Lewin Ln." address refers the to driveway. It's at the corner of Stirling Rd. and Melaleuca Rd. The owner is Dr. Robert Lewin (of 1-800-411-PAIN fame). The brothers are a chiropractor and a lawyer that specialize in "slip and fall" cases.

I want a ferry across the water.  Run by Charon himself.

Ragin' Asian: Why would one list this on Zillow and not with Christie's, Sotheby's, or even just Douglas Elliman?


We've seen this kind of thing before. My guess is that Zillow offers to list it and other properties like it for free in order to attract more wealthy customers.

It's probably listed on a bunch of places, but only Zillow pays for daily Fark ads.

1.  Is there a separate building for all the hurricane plug-ins for the glass and to house the machinery to lift said plug-ins?

2.  As a "New Construction" does that mean the builders never lived there?

3.  The interior is generic and non-offensive as a Denny's.

4.  Could I put in a bid where none of that crap conveys?

5.  How's the fishing?

6.  Perhaps I missed it but does the property have a dock?

7.  What size is estimated for a fully functioning staff and do they have good quarters?  I stopped on the slideshow at #70-ish.

8.  Would the neighbors complain if I burned, in an open pit, most of that art?

9.  The basketball court didn't appear to be lit.

10.  How much of a pain would it be to get a helo pad authorized for the property?

11.  It could be handy, if I could afford the down payment & monthly(s), to start buying back all the books I've loaned out over the years and that weren't returned.

The estimated monthly payment equalled my entire mortgage when I closed a decade ago, and this is a lot of house for two people
