Land of Excess is APPALLED at the encroachment of McMansions into Loudoun County, VA.  This particularly feculent, scab-like stonework is sited in “Creighton Farms”, a so-called “golf community” on the east side of Rt. 50 south of Leesburg, VA, and across the road from the historic Oak Hill, constructed 1820-1822 for James Monroe while he was still busy being the 5th president of the United States.  We are struck anew by the impossibility of reconciling such opposing notions of residential building existing in proximity to each other.  Anyway, this is the “decorated Villa Model Home” offered for sale for $2,350,000 with a 3 car garage, 4 full and 2 half baths, and 4 bedrooms.
