Land of Excess looks at real estate listings for the Greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area on the net, and when we find a property we think is particularly heinous, we check out the listing photos and text.  Sometimes we are just delighted at what we find, like this photo of a stairway leading up to a painting.  While we know it is not quite of the caliber of a work by Louise Lawler, there is a certain something going on.   AND– it is in an “EXPANSIVE MANSE BY ONE OF AREA’S MOST REPSECTED [sic] CRAFTSMEN.”   $2,800,000. gets you 7 full and 2 half  baths, a 3 car garage, and 7 bedrooms in the very “repsectable” Great Falls, VA.
