Bargain Alert, Big Sale on Bruce Makowsky's Spec House

He has lowered the price from $250M to a mere $188M.  Do you suppose it's starting to look like a big white elephant?

Extravagant and gaudy. Is he still married to Kathy Van Zealand (spelling)?

George Strait's home in Texas is also on the market. 

 

And I just saw Derek Jeter's NY Castle is on the market as well.

 

Lots of competition.  LOL

Now I wonder where everyone is moving to?  The housekeeping alone (ahhahahaha) would prohibit my ever buying one of their homes. (Yeah right! Smiley WinkWoman Wink)

That house, other than being ugly, is so absolutely specific in design and taste.  I cannot imagine someone buying it to actually live in.  Perhaps some conglomerate will buy it to rent for corporate events (like movie studio bosses, or diamond mine owners). 

 

It's a spectacle, not a home.  UGH.

Re: Bargain Alert, Big Sale on Bruce Makowsky's Spec House

    The house doesn’t look like a home!! It looks like an overdone,overpriced hotel!!

    Helicopters, guns, giant sculptures, candy walls, waterfalls etc. Apparently, even the super rich aren’t interested.

    I wonder what the property taxes are.It must be in the millions!!  It would also cost millions to have a staff to clean the interior & maintain the grounds!!

    It looks like Bruce Makowsky misjudged this one.I’m not surprised.He was always full of himself.
