    Is this the ugliest mansion in America? The 'gas station' home in Lake Success is on the market for $5.88 MILLION


    By Daily Mail Reporter
    PUBLISHED: 08:31 EST, 2 September 2012 | UPDATED: 08:33 EST, 2 September 2012



    At one time it was presumably the home of someone’s dreams but Hollywood Mansion is now being slammed as the stuff of realtors' nightmares.

    The property in New York’s Long Island has the unfortunate accolade of being ranked as one of the ugliest mansions in the country by Forbes.
    The magazine describes the boxy property as a ‘gas station home’ which could also pass for a hotel.

    Hollywood Mansion: Forbes described this house in New York's Long Island as one of the ugliest mansions in the U.S.



    Acquired taste: The multiple TV screens and band set make this room resemble a cruise liner



    Extravagant: The marble floors, green furnishings, shiny mahogany and retro lights may not be to everyone's tastes

    But, of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and realtors are hoping someone will love the extravagant property enough to splash $5.88 million on it, reported Curbed.com.

    More...




    Spread over more than two acres, boasting a vast portico and various out buildings, the mansion certainly boasts quantity.

    Indeed realtors sell the home as the buyer’s chance to own the biggest property ‘not just on the block, but in all of Lake Success, Great Neck.’

    Undeniably over-the-top in style, the Lake Success address suits the Hollywood Mansion property perfectly.


    For sale: The property in Long Island's Great Neck is on the market for $5.88 million



    Party house: The property, which sprawls over 8,700 feet, even boasts its own bar



    Up for grabs: The listing promises that the buyer of Hollywood Mansion will be the 'talk of the town'

    Build in 1994, the 8,700-square-foot home has six bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a four-car garage and an impressive bar.

    With bright white walls and appliances against ivy green furnishings, the decor harks back to a by-gone era.

    One living room has no less than three flat screens TVs and a grand piano and drum set on an upper tier, giving it the feel of a lobby on a seventies cruise liner.

    The listing promises that if you buy Hollywood Mansion you’ll be the ‘talk of the town.’

    Harsh criticism: Forbes magazine said the property's oversized portico and four-car garage made the home seem like a hotel or a gas station



    Boxy: The property was built in 1994 and is now on the market for $5.88 million

    As hideous and tacky as this may be, it can't be the ugliest mansion in America, there have been worse than this posted here.

    It's way over the top in a Tony Montana kinda way, but if you have 5.8 million to spend, then you can spend another couple of million to refurbish the inside. I don't despise it, but I've seen way worse.

    I have a bit of a soft-spot for Art Deco, even faux Art Deco and I've seen so many more worse on here!

    The greenhouse is cute and the double height sitting room looks great from the kitchen area.

    Outside and inside are pretty much the ugliest thing I have laid eyes on since novice's sicko carrot top avi. Burn it to the ground and run far far away, no one can live on land that has known this kind of fug, at least not for several generations.

    I honestly can find nothing redeeming about this hideous beast. Even the grounds are ugly.

    It's not the worst I've ever seen, but the front entrance reminds me of Annie when she shows up to Daddy Warbucks' house and says "are we at Grand Central Station?"

    It's a house? I thought it was Leonard's of Great Neck.

    This will be some tacky couple's dream home, I find it pretty ghastly personally but its not the ugliest thing I've ever seen.
