More from the Long and Foster listing:

AAHHH…..I’m home. Do you ever feel that way after a long day away from home, that as soon as you walk in you have an AAHH moment. Well, this house makes you feel that way…you’re home. Walk in to the large Great Room and the first thing you see is a luxurious home. Brazilian Rosewood flooring, crowned with 11 ft ceilings, and this is not new construction. High ceilings and Brazilian Rosewood are on every floor.

    I think it’s funny that they describe the dining room table and comfy seats- as if the furniture arrangement is part of the house, when it actually detracts from what looks like a nice place. And about $100K too high.

      Christine, I agree about the furniture! I like the quirkiness of the furniture, but it just doesn’t go with the house. Something’s off.

      The bones of the house itself though, are beautiful. If the buyers can look past the furniture, it’s a lovely space.

      Agreed, its quirky layout doesn’t match a nearly half-mil price. doesn’t show basement or backyard. think it would need some work overall, nice as it shows. But I’d get rid of most of the furniture, flip the dr/lr arrangement and toss that borscht colored rug for showing.

    I like that it seems to have the owners’ things and not the cookie-cutter bechevroned items of a stager.

    I’m curious – the second to last picture, is that brick in the window on the left?
