Land of Excess revisits yesterday’s featured residential building in Great Falls, VA.  Here is the second story landing. Our founder marvels at  the extravaganza from which the chandelier dangles.  And too we marvel at all the little light fixtures that surround it.  But, suddenly, we are distracted from all this grandeur by the claim (we now belately notice) that is made at the very end of the listing text.  Here is the last sentence: “Set on .89 acres with historic tree, 4-car garage, +5 feng shui.”   What a range of potential interests are addressed here!   $5,200,000 gets you that historic tree and +5 feng shui AND 5 full and 2 partial baths and 5 bedrooms.
