Luxury £5million mansion on its own island mocked online by potential buyers
March 3, 2022
A plush mansion located on its very own island has been mocked online after people pointed out one off-putting flaw.
The 2.3 acre property on Bald Eagle Lake in Saint Paul, Minnesota has been put on the market for $6.6million (£4,926,000) and has been shared across social media in recent days.
Despite having five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, its own hovercraft and six garages, many have said the placing of two obstructive poles in the middle of the kitchen table means they wouldn't want to own it.
The two poles are positioned asymmetrically on the white table and take up the space of an entire chair, potentially blocking people sitting together from seeing each other fully.
One unimpressed Instagram user pointed out the "posts going through the kitchen table", accompanied by an emoji of a man facepalming.
Another joked "the columns in that table aren’t getting enough hate", with someone similarly quipping "it's the two posts through the dining room table for $6.6 mil that does it for me".
Responding to a post that asked who would want to live in the 'dream home', one person wrote: "I can't w[ith] the table and columns in the kitchen."
An online listing from estate agent Landucci Homes however would make out that this a far more desired property than the comments suggest, with one part reading: "One of the most sought after Trophy properties in the Twin Cities, this home offers an experience like none other.
"2800'+ shoreline, completely rebuilt bigger and better from the original iconic modern design from Rust Architects."
The estate agents also advertise that the house on Bald Eagle Island was a 'smart home' controlled by iPads, for several functions including the lights, door and camera system
It is accessible via boat "365 days a year", the listing says.
