We live amidst houses with really big lots. The closest neighbors we have are a good distance away only because their houses are set so far back from the road, and ours is much closer. This will change when much closer neighbors move into the neighborhood being built full of custom homes directly adjoining our property.
One house has been built and is for sale. Saturday, it was semi-warm, and Josh and I took a walk through the new neighborhood. The house for sale had a real estate fact sheet that shed some light on the contrast between our little house and our future neighbors.
Square-footage-wise, FIVE of our houses could fit in the house nearest to us that is for sale.
It's being sold for OVER SIX TIMES what ours did.
As it is, I prefer 'cozy' to 'cavernous'
