Land of Excess brings you this Google Street View screenshot of a residential building for sale in McLean, VA    We are interested to see that it shares a driveway with the place next door (at left).  The lot of the building on the right is a half acre.  The land slopes down steeply in the back to a ravine, so the dwellings are crammed up here right near the road.   Across the road and to the east about 300 feet is the Embassy of Qatar.  $3,650,000 gets you a 2 car garage, 6 full and 3 partial [not half, partial] baths and 6 bedrooms.  Oh well, a sort of mundane post.
