How do you figure that's Ken Lewis' house?

Let's be honest--$4.5 MM isn't too much money to spend on a house if you're the CEO of one of the world's largest banks. IF that is his house (I am not convinced), he lived well within his means.

Depends if thats his primary residence. He could very well live in a $10-20M Manhattan apartment and spend 3 weeks a year at a $4.5M house. And a $4.5M house in Charlotte is a fucking shitload considering you can buy a pretty nice house down there for under a million dollars... and it appears he spent over $1M decorating the place.

Nice exterior and design. GAUDY interior. I hate that kind of decor (which one finds often in southern homes)

Extremely tacky. It suits him.

I love everything but the inside. Jesus thats terrible.

Yeah, I agree, it definitely isn't his only residence, but given the banks HQ is in Charlotte, and the article said this was the residence in which he received the call from Thain for the purchase of ML, it's likely to be his primary residence. But, I would not be surprised if he had an extravagant apartment/condo in nyc.,

I wouldn't be surprised if that house had a chandelier in the bathroom.
