This home may or may not be in exceptional condition—it doesn't really look like it's in exceptional condition in the photos, but then again, maybe it could just use a little more cleaning and some new curtains? It's hard to be completely sure one way or the other, but if you're on the fence about the "exceptional" claim, the "perfect yard" is certainly not doing it any favors. Wouldn't a perfect yard mostly be covered in grass that isn't, you know, dead? Whose idea of "perfect" is this, anyway?

Other than some molding in the living room that looks like it could be pried loose using medium-length fingernails, this is the only built in woodworking to be found in the listing photos. Maybe all the exceptional stuff is hiding.

It would have to be an exceptional buyer, wouldn't it, to figure out what this room is supposed to be for.
