How come anyone with good taste in airplanes - see the SNJ in the hangar - can have such appallingly bad taste when it comes to architecture?

Apparently, not everyone is cut out to be an architectural aesthete, I42. ;)

Perhaps the owner was a bit short on imagination, inspiration, or money for a proper architect. There's certainly a lack of Feng Shui in the layout and orientation.

For $3.5 mil I would rather like to taxi a jet to my side door, Ala John Travolta, former owner of the fabulously restored Qantas 707. That Florida house had more of a style to it, although as most modern homes go, it did lack a certain grace.

Probably so busy enjoying their 'toys' that as long as the basics were there, all was ok. I'd have to make the living quarters more 'warm' for peace of mind.

It's got nothing on my neighborhood.

My hangar is not attached but I can walk or bike there. Better yet, my condo is affordable on an engineer's salary. We do have some rather lavish homes here however, and not ugly like that one.

Texas is a very aviation friendly state. We have many private airports with hangar-homes, and public airports with through-the-fence private ownership homes. My little spot is not anywhere near as lavish, but it's gets the job done.

Agree about his 'taste' in home decor. Rather appalling. Maybe blame the little woman? :E

3.5 bathrooms? How does 0.5 of a bathroom work?

Nah, your eye was taken off the ball...

What the rest of us would call a downstairs loo...
