This came via a reader submission for a two-bedroom, two-bath example of hideousness: "Short sale in the Oaks, and although it's got a gorgeous view, it's also where all the trends of the 'flippers' era' have come to decompose." And we agree, those views do compensate for a lot of the questionable design features. And we're sure there's someone out there who loves squares almost as much as this owner, who seems to have inserted horizontal boxes everywhere - the deck, the kitchen, and the bedroom windows. From the listing: "A huge, open floor plan with high, beamed ceiling and mahogany floors, flows from kitchen thru dining & into the living room. Elegant kitchen features granite counters, custom cabinetry, & stainless appliances. Both bathrooms are glamorously detailed in granite." The problem with this alleged flipper -- last sale price in 2006 was $1,020,000. Today's asking price: $995,000.
