Walked through a neighborhood with Gloria yesterday in search of something fabulous, instead we found a few design citations that left us scratching our heads in confusion. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder….
Big sky and big mountains are a visual mainstay if you live in the suburbs of Las Vegas. This home has potential, but the lack of landscaping and its pealing exterior paint leave it feeling flat and uncared for. The wooden posts are a nice touch though.
Enormous and slightly nerve-wracking to imagine this tree on a windy day.
Can’t sugarcoat it, I thought the stone facing on this house was horrible. It reminds me of a rare skin disease or a box of broken Legos.
Keeping with the crazy patterns, this front yard of stone tiles and artificial grass is easy on maintenance, but hard on the eyes. I give the design five stars for concept and one star for style.It’s not that I enjoy criticizing another person’s home, but sometimes their design choices are truly WTF? moments. The patio stones attached to the side of this house make no sense what-so-ever! Every neighborhood has a guard dog and after a few warning barks this handsome guy decided we were not a threat and happily followed us to the end of his property line.These manicured trees look like mushrooms or gumdrops on a toothpick. Either way, the design worked with the style of the house and we liked the concept.Cowboy country! We spotted plenty of horses but somehow missed the shirtless cowboys we assumed would be running wild on the ranch. We’ll come back during rodeo season. The light-colored horse was friendly and kept kicking its front hoof on the ground to get our attention. The darker horse wasn’t happy about the attention and eventually bit the other one on the rump.Best friends forever or cell mates, depending on your perspective.Because this is a desert, the city is required or paid to keep unpaved roads from becoming a dust hazard by running water trucks over them. It seems like a waste of water to me, especially considering the road cuts through an open desert anyway.Is it just me or does this bull have a really friendly face? It seemed to enjoy getting its picture taken and at one point I even thought it was flirting. I could be wrong…..There are creepy gargoyles all around the perimeter of this property. Not sure if they had anything to do with it, but we spotted several dead birds lying on the ground next to the fence. Just sayin’.I swear one of these things turned its head when we weren’t looking!As with most neighborhoods in Las Vegas there is always a park nearby. This is Mountain Crest Park and a popular disc golf course.Thanks so much for coming along with us on our adventure and please feel free to add your critique of the homes in the comment section below. I’d love to know your style opinion.
