Today Land of Excess returns for yet a third time in a row to this new construction in Great Falls, VA priced at $5,950,000.  Here we see the wacky front facade, and just LOVE the contrast between the fauxy colonial architecture and the daringly Modernist rectangles formed by the sod.  We think these Modernist-y rectangles would be fun to do in, say, the Uber-McMansion development “The McLean Reserve”, using different types of grass for each little rectangle of sod.  Anyway, we don’t know if this represents sloppy work on the part of the sod supplier or sod-layers, or if it is a normal start to the typical toxic green to-be-looked-at lawn that it seems everyone wants and upon which no one is ever seen.
