Is to find something wrong with this home.  This is actually a bit absurd to me; I can't believe that a house like this exists in Houston, particularly with the proliferation of grand old Louisiana style homes in the area.  This mission-style home reminds me almost of a castle, particularly the great room.  And what a great room it is, with those heavy rafters and chandeliers dripping from the ceiling.  There's also something really funky about having windows inside a home but I think for me, it just adds to the grandeur.  That and the indoor Romeo and Juliet balcony.

I'll look for something more budget-friendly this week but I couldn't resist sharing this one.  Happy Monday!
