Your Crapmaster braced myself as I approached the Furmanville farmhouse recently. Last I remembered, the plan was for it to be stuccoed, and its lot subdivided.
I have to say, I didn't feel bile creeping up my esophagus as I had expected. The stucco is actually pretty tasteful, and although the once-green lawn next to it was built on, it's not the ugliest McMansion in the borough, nor does it dwarf its historic neighbor.
It does pretty much fill up the entire lot, however. And it looks like a lovely mature tree met its maker for this project. Hope the owners of the surrounding properties have flood insurance.
Here's the original farmhouse and lawn:
And here are the trees in full bloom.
