Strong theme park vibes.

Money over taste NEVER wins

by Anonymousreply 207/31/2020

Beyond hideous.

by Anonymousreply 307/31/2020

It’s really, really, really ugly. Money can’t buy taste.

by Anonymousreply 407/31/2020

Looks like a home built by a Powerball winner.

by Anonymousreply 507/31/2020

It's an interesting structure. I wonder which parts are original and which were added on in later years.

by Anonymousreply 607/31/2020

If he's not living there at the moment, is it available? Even if he is, is it still available?

by Anonymousreply 707/31/2020

Ooof, that's terrible, inside and out.

It hasn't sold in two years because people who can afford it can generally afford whatever they want - they have options, and the chance of them wanting something that particular isn't great. Gotta cut that price, Derek.

There's all these weird Big Lots touches here and there.

by Anonymousreply 907/31/2020

the epitome of fugly... looks like one of those abandoned overgrown theme parks...would be embarrassed to call that mine and my home and how much i paid for it!...

by Anonymousreply 1007/31/2020

I remember DL thinking how hideous it was when it was first built. And the castle aspect certainly didn't dissuade anyone from thinking he was a big old 'mo.

by Anonymousreply 1107/31/2020

He should hire the cockgobbler to do "Downton" inspired interiors.

I wish Derek's dick would take a tour of my sphincter.

I want him to take me to his dungeon.

It looks like a Miniature Golf course.

It's so...brown.

It's what I imagine the Olive Garden's alleged test kitchens in Tuscany look like.

by Anonymousreply 2007/31/2020

It's sad because it's so beautifully situated by the water, yet it's really ugly. It's like a tiny "Medieval World" hotel no one would ever want to stay at.

Oh yeah — I had dinner there once.

It looks like a set from a Disney theme park.

Did he built that ugly thing on this compound? What a waste of a beautiful piece of land.

awww, maaaa! lifestyles of the Rich & Famous is a re-run this week.

I agree.

Found it interesting that his grandfather grew up there, according to the article.

But not interesting enough to explain or excuse the sheer fugly.

The Statue of Liberty replica is the straw that broke the camel

The dining room is like a nightmare.

Tear it down, burn it with fire, nothing can be saved.

by Anonymousreply 3107/31/2020

JUst bulldoze it. Hopefully he'll go broke in Florida, too, if he doesn't die first.

by Anonymousreply 3207/31/2020

That thing is hilariously ugly.

by Anonymousreply 3307/31/2020

That Statue of Liberty is only maybe 1/50 size. So not worth it!!

by Anonymousreply 3407/31/2020

The land is beautiful but I would tear everything down and rebuild.

He obviously has no taste.

by Anonymousreply 3507/31/2020

It's TACKY. How dreadful.

by Anonymousreply 3607/31/2020

Tacky, overpriced home isn't selling. Shocker.

New York? Must be miserable in the winter. No swimming; no waterfall...

by Anonymousreply 3807/31/2020

Hey nonny nonny! What knave hath built this castle?

by Anonymousreply 3907/31/2020

I would like to live there during the quarantine.

It's a bit much for me during regular life. I could move my mom and aunt in there let them spend their fabulous later years and be across the bridge so I can enjoy my friends. Statue of Liberty is not necessary. Maybe can put in a tennis court.

If it's so special why is he selling it?

by Anonymousreply 4007/31/2020

R30 that dining room is like the RedRum sequence in The Shining.

If so special it is, why leave?

by Anonymousreply 4207/31/2020

Who in the world will ever buy that place off his hands? The only scenario I can think of would be a Russian buyer.

Don’t sit down anywhere; you’ll catch his herpes.

by Anonymousreply 4408/01/2020

The property itself is absolutely beautiful. The house? Not so much.

by Anonymousreply 4508/01/2020

Is there any type of renovations that could make it livable? Maybe donate it for a Make A Wish camp?

by Anonymousreply 4608/01/2020

R46, washing the furniture in herpes medication.

by Anonymousreply 4708/01/2020

Just bulldoze the whole damn thing and start over. It reminds me of Neverland, everything about it is hideous.

by Anonymousreply 4808/01/2020

"Is there any type of renovations that could make it livable?"

I think he actually just renovated the place. That is why he's asking for $14m now. Money can't buy you taste (and apparently not even a good interior designer).

Yes, the 1903 Datalounge had a tizzy over it.

I dont hate it, but its insanely big and has way too much ....brown. Also insanely overpriced. He paid $425k for it in 2003 and now he wants over 14 mil? 1.475 mil would be closer, 4 mil would be really pushing it

OP is dead right - it looks like a conference centre, and would be ideal as one. A home to actually live in, not so much

by Anonymousreply 5108/01/2020

Would be a great conference/retreat center for molestation! Derek probably installed a "fun room."

by Anonymousreply 5208/01/2020

Would be perfect for Harry and Meghan

No pictures of the dungeon?

Is Derek still messing around with guys?

by Anonymousreply 5508/01/2020

When did he ever r55? News to me?

by Anonymousreply 5608/01/2020

We discussed this place here when he first put it on the market, and IIR, the comments then were much the same.

Google that thread if you're interested, I'm too lazy.

Never any proof or confirmation, r56, but the rumors go back for years, to his playing days.

Same with Mike Piazza.

by Anonymousreply 5808/02/2020

The exterior stone is nice in theory. The interior is bad. The statue of liberty is BEYOND bad. Tasteless.

by Anonymousreply 5908/02/2020

More importantly I see that today is the 41st anniversary of Thurman Munson's death. What a shock to my 16 year old system that was. For the non-eldergays and non-sports fans those of us outside the major league cities saw one national game a week. Saturday afternoon on NBC. The image of Reggie Jackson from behind crying during the moment of silence is an image that has been ingrained in my mind for years.
