There’s an ad (disguised as a news story) in today’s Greenwich Time on a piece of new construction that’s been placed on the market in New Canaan. The following passage caught my eye:
With cathedral ceilings, ornamental beams and detailed millwork, the custom property is a classic example of a “transitional-style Colonial” that so many buyers are seeking.
“I create houses that are different,” said Ryan Fletcher, owner of Fletcher Development LLC.
It may be a nice house, but “different”? It looks like every other house that’s been built here in Greenwich and our surrounding towns for the past 15 years. I wasn’t wild about the neo-victorian fad when it first appeared, and grew increasing dubious as copies of the look metastasized across our borders. It’s probably time to shut it down and look for something else. Log cabins, maybe.
