Big and Bold in Bedford

Year Built: 2009
Square Feet: 13,000
Bedrooms: 5
Property: 20 acres
Location: Bedford, in the heart of the estate area.
Best features: If you're looking for room to roam, this place has it both inside and out. Designed by Ogawa/Depardon Architects, the house boasts gorgeous materials and an elegant minimalism. In addition to some massive public areas, there's also an interior reflecting pool and koi pond, a gym, theater, and wine cellar. And check out the shower in the master bathroom.
Downside: In the era of downsizing and restraint, a 13,000 square foot home is probably a bit of a hard sell. And, while I like the style, it will take a huge amount of interior design to tone down the coldness and make this look less like corporate headquarters and more like someone's home.
Taxes: $60,750
Asking Price: $9,500,000 
Agency: Julia B. Fee Sotheby's
Maps: Google Map, bing Map

$60,000 in taxes? No matter how rich I was I wouldn't spend that much on taxes!

Suppose it is a matter of taste, but yes this does strike me a something that is a commercial space rather than a home.

Good post. It’s amazing how many realtors post complete junk. Some people spend zero time and effort on even the basic stuff like photography. Thanks for this amazing real estate blog.Sales office
