WSJ House of the Day

Volunteer

This thing is on Long Island Sound in Westport, CT. It is available for $12 million. It was owned by a real estate developer who has gone to his just reward.

It's ok, I guess, but I prefer more window variety.  Easy pass.

Looks like someone looked at a chart of roof profiles and said, "Yep, I'll take one of each."

That thing makes me want to barf but Volunteer I would love it if you actually did post a WSJ House of the Day every day!! That could be a fun ongoing critique.

Donna, will do. They actually change the 'house of the day' every three or four days. Many of the houses, whether classical or modern, are quite good, but the prices always seem to be up there in dog-whistle territory. On Fridays the WSJ always has a separate real estate section with articles on different houses and renovations from around the world.

That would be great if it meant that.

Sounds like something you say at the beginning of a bar fight. "Wanna see Jesus?"
