Granted: we are not the target market for a $30 million house. But why must these large, expensive homes feature cavernous living rooms with all the warmth of a hotel lobby? We appreciate the parquet de Versailles in the living room, but we don't want to live in Versailles. This place is 12,000sf, with seven bedrooms and seven baths and antique carved stone fireplaces. There's 1.9 acres of beautiful land with 203 feet of frontage on Georgica Pond. And the property is adjacent to a 17-acre reserve. The gigantic kitchen/family room opens up to a stunning limestone terrace with infinity-edge pool. There's also a separate two-bedroom guest cottage.
