You could have a nice place in Sydney.

That would be one of the cities for sure.

You heard about the Indian family who are supposedly buidling the most expensive house in Australia in Peppermint Grove?

No, but maybe I'll drop off a business card!  Cheesy  I can accommodate 'expensive.'

my 2 cents...

no home builder i have seen gives consideration to Internet proximity...

esp with technologies like DSL/cable where there is significant loss of signal strength with distance...

running extra wires thru the house and drilling holes in walls to make up for lack of thought on the builders part is crap  Angry

RPF, actually the aluminum siding holds up better and is much easier to maintain.  Wish I had it.  Undecided

More of the shotty construction goes on where you don't see it....thinner subfloors, etc....

Aluminum siding makes it cheaper to build, ...as well as cheaper to buy.

Personally, I want nothing less than all brick or stone construction.

I'm not fond of the cabinetry in the kitchen & bathrooms, or the giant giraffes, ...but I could live with it.  Cheesy

it's nice. I'm not fond of them either. The choice in wood is terrible and the walls need some colour.  ... But I could live with it  Cheesy

The front entrance isn't as grand as it should be, ...and the window frames are rather bland imo.
...definately in need of a skilled craftsman. In addition to colour, the walls also need some texture.

One of the most amazing mansions I've ever seen was the D'Angelo mansion in Orange County, owned by the family that owns "The Limited". It has streams running through the home stocked with koi. Absolutely breathtaking!

I'd also lose the red carpeting, ...it's just a little too stark for my taste.

NOW THIS IS A HOUSE.  This is a friend of my friend.  They are business partners.  I am going to this house in a couple months to meet him.  And yes I will take pics.  But this guy is 72 years old and looks like he is 40.  This house is valued at $100 million.  35,000 sq ft on 80 acres in California near Hearst Castle.  This place is unreal.  Take the Virtual Tour

TORONTO 2007 - ROSEDALE
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ettml/sets/72157594507953864/

some of these are amazing!

Rosedale is ok. It's alot of very old money. Very stuffy, very WASPY and old It's more hyped than it should be imo.

Another very nice area is Forest Hill. I actually prefer Forest Hill to Rosedale. It's more Jewish than Rosedale because alot of folks at that time period were pretty anti-semitic, so as Jewish merchants became more prosperous and moved away from Spadina, since they couldn't live in Rosedale, they went to Forest Hill. Alot of late 19th & 20th century money resides in Forest Hill, like the Westons, Eatons, etc. imo, the ultimate in privacy and luxury within Toronto itself is The Bridle Path area. Some of those homes are simply amazing. That's where the artist formerly known as Prince bought. The Bridle Path is mostly relatively new money, and the homes are far more modern than anything you'll find in either Rosedale, and in some ways Forest Hill as well.

We used to shoot in some of those Bridle Path mansions, and my friend Jasmine lives there. I met her when we used her house as a location for 3 scenes for an Ellen Barkin movie. They made their money in computer software during the dot com boom. It was really wierd for her, because her and her husband were once struggling university students barely able to feed themselves. Their idea of a culinary feast was having a few veggies to toss into their packet of Ramen noodles... then swoosh, overnight, they became 20 something dot com multi-millionaires living along the Bridle Path. It was a tough job, ...but somehow, ...she managed to get used to her new status in life.  Tongue

The production company rented her front foyer, & kitchen for the shoot, ...and her driveway & front courtyard for honeytown. They located the costume department as well as our green room in her 5 yr old daughter's playroom. The playroom had to be at least 2,000 sq feet. Her back deck accomodated over 300 cast & crew for dinner, 3 catering set ups with plenty of room to spare. Incredible! The rental fee... $10 grand for one night. Not bad for renting out a couple of rooms.  Cheesy

Another absolutely amazing mansion is the the one that used to belong to the former chairman of GM out in Oshawa. I forget the name of it, but it's a pretty common location we'd use for shoots. The grounds were like Tuscany gardens, incredibly expansive with Etruscan statuary.
