That is nothing. In my city, there is a neighborhood called Lakeview
which is upper class. Most houses there are quite old but very well
kept or renovated. Our family lawyer lives there. Near his house some
family bought a house and tore it down to build a brand new one. When
the house was almost done, this guy demolished the whole structure and
started another different style house which is finished now. I still
wonder about this.
There has been a lot of that in our area of waterfront properties. Very
nice, older one story homes demolished and replaced by McMansions. The
new homes are mostly three story and cover the property from side to
side. They are truly hideous, too big for the lot and all seem to be
designed with one of every type of window available...took a tour of one
that was furnished with one brand of furniture that looked like it came
in one package....like the stuff that used to sell for $200/room. Yuck!
They look a heck of a lot different than a household that is a
combination of early marriage, granny's gift, one special spree and the
stuff we fought over before selecting :o)
