Perhaps the most interesting thing about this set is the instruction booklet. In addition to building instructions, it is full of history tidbits about the whitehouse as well as photos.
If you like lego buildings, then I'd say this set is a must have for you. When finished the set is rather small, and there are no minifigs. I wouldn't recommend this for a child, the play value for them is fairly low, it has no minifigs. This set sits on a bookshelf in my place. If fifty dollars is too much for a bookend, then I would recommend a different lego set. There are plenty of others that sell for fifty which have alot more bricks and minis. Overall though, it's a good set, just more of an adult set.
In place of the simple black 1x1 brick, a black 1x1 TECHNIC brick is used in its place.
This may not be really important to you, but it will be for your wallet. I absolutely love LEGO and appreciate the Architecture series this set is a part of, yet for almost $50, I as a consumer would expect a whole lot more than 560 small pieces.
The hole in the center of the black 1x1 TECHNIC brick does not show on the exterior and is not needed to hold any support pieces in place in the hollow interior, so I can take a wild guess and say that LEGO's initial price of this set is based on the usage on those specific TECHNIC bricks. These can easily be replaced with simple black 1x1 bricks, and using the price estimate button on LEGO Digital Designer (The older version from January 2012 when you could buy what you created; not the current version.), the initial price shrunk from $52.31 to $26.95...
I hope this helps with your purchasing decision on this set and I hope you find my review helpful. Peace out!
