  1. The interior is lovely, restrained. But, the exterior… OMG. You’re kidding, right? Anyone remember The Lava Lady’s house off La Brea? This is like a big 3rd finger salute to a lovely historic neighborhood full of jewel box Spanish homes. What were they thinking??

  2. @marsha p — AGREED!!!!!!

  3. I would think that the exterior color would significantly increase the heat load of the house. Not good in my opinion.

  4. No yard for 5 and a half? are you kidding me.
