They certainly have changed the house dramatically from what it was before, and I feel it is much improved. I no longer dread coming out my front door and looking across the street. I am very familiar with the history of the house as Chanda and I were friends of the previous owners. They were in an awful rush to get the house finished. The painting the last day was very sloppy, and it clearly shows.

This house is back on the market (May 2015). Do you know which model type this is? I'd be interested in seeing an original floor plan. I think there's been some modification to the original atrium. Any light you can shed on this would be great!

Hi Scott: I visited the house yesterday and was going to write a post about it, but as they say: "if you can't say anything nice...".

From an unwelcoming agent to a bedazzled fireplace there's not a lot to like, imho (and from the opinion of craftsmanship).

This model has no atrium, but instead an adult wing (opposite the kid's wing) -- it's kind of a neat model, but it's easy to wish for an atrium.

I could go point by point of how the owners and agents should have done better if they had hopes to compete with 4095 Phoenix on price (it's obvious they're trying to ride the wave), but I'll refrain. It's also obvious that it's in my best interest to see the house sell for as much as possible, but it's disconcerting when the house is /worse/ than before and attempting a $200K profit (or $300 pre-flip). Opportunism and poor craftsmanship are hard things to reward, imho.
