How Much Latticework is Too Much? Patio Furniture Design Disaster Drops $20K in Price

New, 3 comments

About a year ago, Curbed ran a quickie post about a riverfront listing in Roxborough with a riverside veranda and some over-the-top interior decor. The the same place is still on the market, recently dropped about $20K from the asking price, and the listing agent added more pictures. Though the naked lady statue at the corner of the pool sure is something, check out the bottom of the pool foreshadows patio furniture motifs to come.

For such a gigantic, no-holds barred monument to the more is more philosophy of interior decor, the vinyl sided front face of the house is incredibly unassuming. Once you step through the front door, though, you know the score: vaulted ceilings, bay windows, and the wild world of latticework motif.

Latticework motif, usually reserved for patio furniture (it's that crosshatch pattern) is the sun around which the decor revolves: lattice on the walls? Yes. Lattice on the bottom of the pool? But of course. Patio furniture in the kitchen? Why not? The pièce de résistance? A sauna housed in a shed composed entirely of wood in a latticework pattern.

Broker babble mentions a "canopy-columned double-wide queen-sized platform", which is tragically left to the imagination.

House Vitals:
Size: 2 beds, 2.5 baths, 3,200 sq ft.
Amenities include: Riverfront deck, vaulted ceilings, enough latticework to cover the world in patio furniture, a sauna (also covered in latticework), and an unpictured custom platform bed with a canopy.
Asking Price: $599,900
