I would recommend that those who don't like these "McMansions" and "behemoths"Read Mores imply don't buy them. Here in America, we have a lot of choices. Those who like them can buy them and those who don't like them don't have to buy them. Some people prefer "charming 1920's construction" and some prefer the size/space and other features that come with 2000's construction. Live and let live.

Stonette, no one is going to take substantially less than they are offered for their home. TheRead Moreonly way to end this trend is to change the zoning laws, and challenge any variances on these properties. As for Suzanne buying all of the properties on her block to stop this... It's hard enough to afford one home in Westfield, it's a ridiculous solution to suggest that she just start buying up her whole block! Brad is right, it is better to own the smaller home between two McMansions, than to own the one McMansion between smaller homes. It does not make it easier to deal with the feeling these huge homes give you...like your neighbors are encroaching on your personal and green space. These homes block sun and views, and we're already on top of each other enough with lot sizes here.
