Architecture Matters

Of the multiple foreclosures shown on this map, three in Anderson Heights area are of the now inescapable, previously rare, river-house form.

They may look fine out near Falls Lake or facing a real waterway, but facing built-neighborhoods with small cricks in their backyards, they may look out of place. Each of them tried to cram 5000 SF on an older small central neighborhood lot for a million and up. They are not selling, perhaps this non-indigenous species will put its design back on the shelf.

Previous entries have covered them here and here and here and here and here.

Fallonia wishes not ill-will on her new neighbors, but looks for the day that consideration returns to the way things are done. Hopefully this is a sign that those market forces are going to take care of things as promised.
