Does sex sell? A rather sensual marketing ad for a house!

On one of the various routes for my morning walk (when I take one) I pass by this house. A fan of contemporary design, I looked it up on Zillow and found it was recently on the market for $13 million...but never sold.

And then I happened upon this rather 'out there' video produced for marketing the place. There's even a 'shower' scene at 2:00!

What do you think? I mean, in this age where some go off on analyzing everything for sexual content is this over the top? (For what it's worth I have NO complaints).

2. Ugh! what an ugly house

but great if you are an exhibitionist.

Matchbox houses are a waste of good real estate. Give me classic architecture any day.

5. I don't mind all the glass, in fact I love it, but

That is more well situated where yours is the only home for miles around.

10. I beg your pardon, you refer to this as a 'matchbox house' ?

How so? One definition is "a small and often badly built house located with many other similar houses on a social housing scheme".

This is a 9200 SF house designed by a prominent architect with many unique design features. Whatever your opinion of the place, please provide some backup as to why you refer to this as a 'matchbox house'.

The Matchbox House by Bureau for Architecture and Urbanism

ANN ARBOR – Set in the woods in Michigan's Ann Arbor, an ‘urban cottage’ uses the idea of a matchbox to play with external and internal geometries.

The four bedroom house is enclosed by a standing seam metal sleeve, holding four inner quadrants (made from cedar siding) within. The different parts protrude at different levels creating an interesting overlap of spaces. Spaces are pulled into the house or extended out, forcing a variation in height and levels inside.

It's always much easier when one pretends to defy convention and instead make up their own definitions, isn't it.

4. I watched the whole thing. She's hot. He really shouldn't be diving into that shallow pool

Nice house. Would cost about $350k/yr just in property taxes in my 'hood.

6. $350,000, wow!

The annual tax bite for a $13 million house around here would be around $150k.

7. That's where they get you here in Texas...property taxes.

But no income tax.

The two properties I own in this state are relatively modest for that reason.
