That place must have been built and decorated by a Jewish or Greek family. Guaranteed!

Probably Bukharan Jews. Instead of "keeping up with the Joneses" it's keeping up with the Avezbadalovs.

The "old" feel could have worked for the house, but it would have worked better if it wasn't so cluttered with old things. Loved how they had xbox games in one of the rooms.

Pretty much every new house that is built in Kew Gardens looks like this on the outside. They are horrible.

Someone spent a metric buttload building that. The style is well, very owner specific.
