    Ok, so I know it’s easy to take pot-shots at SS, but is it me or does this house look remarkably sterile and lacking in “soul”. Is this what “staging” does to sell a house, remove any evidence that someone lives there?

  • JeffreyW

    For someone who knows a thing or two about restaurants, he sure doesn’t understand the functionality of a good kitchen layout. The fridge is soooooo far away…way….way….ay…..

  • Amanda

    Not crazy about the kitchen layout either, but come on, that house is gorgeous! It would be a great place to entertain. Also, notice the bedrooms aren’t shown, maybe, like real people, they just shoved all their shit in the closets while they had photos taken to sell their house.

    I love his restaurants, but I believe the terms we’re looking for here is “fugly”

  • dominic

    Apparently buckets of money can’t buy you taste.

  • thesestreets

    I’m impressed that he actually has a house in the city.

  • Jenn

    If I was a woman invited back to Starr’s place, I’d probably think that Starr was as boring and sterile as his house. I’d hope his bedroom was a LOT more interesting than the rest of his house. However, that being said, I probably wouldn’t sleep with him (money aside). He looks like an orange version of Leonard Nimoy.

  • Julie

    Oh come on, that kitchen is awesome! Love those Italian refrigerators.

    This board reeks of jealousy…

  • Jacques

    Anyone else think that this borders on invasion of privacy? I know the sales listing is public and one can find the owner of the property through city records, but putting these together, monitoring it, and posting it on a web site smacks of lack of ethics. Maybe that douchebag blogger from months back can give us his opinion on the house, too.

  • Tex

    @Julie, I agree. I hear Laban is giving it four bells on Sunday.

  • blee357

    Yeah, that place is terrible. I’m mean who would want a rooftop wet bar?

  • ed sciamanna

    There is definitely something fascinating seeing the private spaces of people who have achieved so much. I am mostly intrigued about why some people seem to have such seemingly unquenchable drive.

    As far as the house, it’s definitely attractive. but it also looks like a place that is not a priority. And given hi emphasis on career, doesn’t that make sense?

    Fortunately, Jenn, the guy has kids, a family, a new wife. Not to mention several restaurants if you haven’t heard. He is definitely not out loooking for tail, like some other married culinary folks in this city. So why even bring it up? Any dealing I ever had with the dude indicated he was a stand up guy driven to succeed in business; maybe at the expense of his marriage and health, but certainly not because of what you’re indicating.
    The yard and deck are awesome. Someone obviously decorated it for him and later staged it. And being he’s at the business 99% of the time, I doubt he really paid attention. Hence, it’s up for sale.
    God, show some respect for success. Bad taste is taste, get over it.
