Behemoths on Beechridge?

I keep hearing that it is necessary to replace some houses in our "better" neighborhoods because they do not live up to the potential of the neighborhood. You be the judge.

While I think this is a sweet, petite home that could enjoy a new life for a downsizing couple, a case could be made for it being too small for folks nowadays. Now that the replacement home has hit the market for nearly $2 million dollars (5 bedrooms, 6 baths, 5380 sq ft), I am thinking it could start a trend. Let me show you why.

Both of these houses went missing earlier this year. One is next door to the above example, and one across the street. 2200 and 2500 sq ft respectively, $500,000 and $650,000 purchase price.

Raise your hand if you think teardowns are about fixing up under-developed neighborhoods.
