Land of Excess’s founder is no longer tied up and locked in the basement, but still feels the need for a slow reentry into the wider world.  Thus we were extra startled to come upon this architectural mash-up in Fairfax, VA  about which the listing broker claims “custom builder’s dream home.”  Our eyes go round and round this photo, searching in vain for some resting place, some sense of order.  Ultimately, we think it best to just look away as quickly as possible, as one would do when noting that someone nearby is picking their nose.  And golly this thing has brick on all four sides!!  8 bedrooms, 8 full and 1 half baths, and a 4 car garage, all for only $1,498,000.
