If they have same sex marriage in UT can I have several men as spouses in different appts on the same estate? This might help solve the terrible top/bottom ratio.

I agree R10. The grounds are lovely but the house, with all its ornate built in flourishes, is terribly tacky, at least by my estimation.

A large rustic cabin, or log cabin-style ranch would have complimented the land and general vibe of the area much better. Why a formal phoney French chateau was chosen is just bonkers. It looks like the home from the old movie "Ruggles of Red Gap" about the wealthy yet unsophisticated Washington state characters would prefer.

I never knew Mormons were such "showy" people. Like r19 said, a large rambling log cabin style house would be more appropriate for the setting. This house looks more suburban Dallas then Utah. The interior is channeling Spelling Manor. Candy would love it

A French chateau with a manicured lawn in the middle of a high desert? How very...developed.
Does it come with the tchotchkes, I wonder? Because that would surely be a selling point for the type of oligarch or Akansas lottery winner that might actually buy the place.

[quote]I never knew Mormons were such "showy" people.
Foyers designed to look like Celestial Rooms are popular with MLM CEOs. They use them for photo shoots and film videos in them, and it's supposed to serve as a reminder to the suckers that they're successful because Heavenly Father appreciated their work ethic and rewarded them. Unfortunately, they don't know when to stop and suddenly there's an easel in every room.
It works because the same suckers — who have just sunk their life savings into a garage full of vitamins — obviously aren't making Heavenly Father happy and the only way they can remedy that is by becoming more successful and that can ONLY be done by increasing the inventory spilling out of the garage.
But this house is tiny compared to the MLMansion down the street, which is (or was) brown and hideous and filled with animal heads. I'll see if I can find pictures.

Looks like it was built and decorated in the 90's. That tacky faux French chateau (and also Tuscon) style was all the rage then. Hopelessly out of date now. And even in 1995, it was never appropriate in that location. It screams New Jersey.

Here we go. This is the monstrosity I mentioned at R41. It's nice to see that the vast expanses of beige and brown haven't been updated, but they need fewer pictures of the Sam's Town waterfall and more of the death room. For some reason, I thought it was 65,000 square feet.
The owner, Tom Mower, used to host insane events in the house including sales workshops that were designed to be like prison. The attendees would be picked up in buses and have to hand over their phones and other devices immediately. They'd be driven to his house, assigned a uniform, and for the rest of the weekend or whatever it was, they were his prisoners.
Then he died.

The hideous art on easels is what did it for me. Reminds me of the NJ home posted multiple times the other day, which had all sorts of art and family photos on easels, both large and small. Easels in general should be used sparingly, and I say this as a proud maximalist. When you have plenty of blank wall space, hang the art instead of putting two easels at the bottom of a double staircase (already designed way too close together) where people might be prone to trip over or stumble into them at whatever soiree you might (never) be hosting. The cherry on the top is that one of the easels was empty...wtf was that about?

The home at r44 would be good for only one thing, and that is as a location for one of Hallmark's "Royal" Christmas movies, where the young(ish) female lead falls in love with a prince.

My brother-in-law and his wife have a lot of money and live in one of those towns that are products of the 1980s. They're always updating and he says things like, "Well I guess that's what everybody is doing" when he installs a $40,000 basement bar (now basically a huge junk drawer), or a $150,000 kitchen with two of everything for convenience. Of course, we know the price and of course they get takeout 6 nights a week.
That is to say, why do all these houses have the exact same features? How do they know I want a 16 seat home theater for football games? Why do I need a 10 car garage? There is something so deeply conformist about this type of new wealth. Oh, I'm rich, so I need to own a lot of cars, entertain like a king, host scores of guests, but live in a secluded spot where no one will come.
The pool is really nice, though.

[quote]That is to say, why do all these houses have the exact same features?
The thing to keep in mind is that they bring in groups of their top salespeople in order to motivate them (i.e., give them false hope). The home theater is used for training videos. The basketball court is filled with folding chairs for live presentations. The water-park pools are used for family days.
