When the founder of Land of Excess was about five years old, her family took their annual Thanksgiving Day Walk on a trail crossing Hickory Run, near our first house in Great Falls, VA on Leigh Mill Road.  We remember enjoying the view from way up high on our father’s shoulders on that cold grey day, and how we were crossing the Run on an old log and, um, our father slipped and fell and we both went tumbling into the cold stream.  That seems like such a quaint memory compared with those which might be wrought from this new monstrosity located within 200 feet of that long ago calamity.

Well, it IS gated, so maybe the new residents will remain safely locked in and never risk venturing out.  $7,250,000 gets you 5 acres and garaging for EIGHT cars, 6 bedrooms, and 7 full and 1 partial bath.
