I’m all for people building a home that appeals to their family needs and lifestyle, but sometimes some people go way overboard…and this is one of those times.
While on my way to the fashion Center in Paramus the other day, I came across this incredibly humongous home that was being built. Seeing this home floored me so much, that I had to take a picture. This home could be on a double or a triple lot, surrounded by homes that aren’t even close to the same size, design or age of this new home.
As a builder, I would never build such a home on spec, because I’d lose big time. And Realtors would call me stupid and talk down the home, making it even harder to sell.
But here’s someone who decided to build this for himself and his family (I’m assuming a family will be living here). They figure that they found a property(ies) for the right price and just because it’s on a highly traveled road, and surrounded by homes of much lesser value…they didn’t care. This was going to be there home. And I assume they know that it’s going to be the most talked about 10,000+ sf home in Paramus.
Hey, maybe this family isn’t so craze, because this doesn’t only happen in Paramus. There’s one home that I recently saew in Franklin Lakes that makes this home look like a doll house,,,and that home is surrounded by tiny homes…and sticks out like a sore thumb…and I bet that home is 30,000 sf.
This is what America is all about.
