Default Out of place?

Someone is building a huge home in Silver Lake/OBG. It is big and looks totally out of place in that area. Does anyone know if this is going to be the coming thing on the historical side? or are these folks just looking to be different? It just doesn't fit. JMHO

I have seen that and cannot imagine that it's a house. But what else could it be? Can't believe if it is a house that any board would have oked it.

Don't know about the board approval but I predict that many years from now most of the historic side will be resold with new homes in place. Makes complete economic sense.

My husband and I said the same thing Mudder. It doesn't look like a house, it's just so big, it looks like a grocery store. Maybe it will look better when it gets finished. And yes, an older home was removed and this is what is going in it's place.
Hope they don't put anything near us anytime soon that looks like that, lol!

Russ, I hope it is many years down the road if it does happen. We like it the way it is.

I hear and sympathize with you but as TV builds out completely the Historic side has lots to offer the people who would do a tear down.

But won't that ruin the value of the surrounding smaller older houses?

I was a real estate appraiser in another life. Actually this new house sounds like an "overimprovement." This will not diminish the values in the neighborhood, but will negatively affect the value of the overimprovement.

It does seem to drawf the homes on both sides. While I "oohed" and "aahhed" and said, "can we do that?" He said don't look how tall it is. Quit looking up; look how wide and how far back it goes. It isn't that big, according to my husband.

Default One is allowed to buy on the historic side and remove the

manufactured home and replace it with a frame or block home.
