Sweet Custom Window

 This is a beach-front house a few blocks from me. Obviously, it's currently undergoing a big renovation, but I photographed it because I was interested in the Prairie-style custom window. Nice touch. Posted by Picasa

How big of a lot does something like this sit? Is it less than an acre?

Flix - Californians barely know what an acre is because none of our houses have much land, especially at the beach. I couldn't really estimate the dimensions on the ocean-front lots, but I think ours is like 150 x 40. We have long, skinny lots at the beach, and much of the architecture reflects those dimensions. Less than an acre? Oh hell yeah!

Go here for an aerial of my little town to get some perspective. I'm sure it will look much different from what you are used to.

That image is sort of funny. They're all so long and narrow, they all look like mobile homes :) Gotta do what ya gotta do I guess :) "Yes, I have a beach view.. it may only be 2 feet wide, but I can see it!!"

Yeah, those actually look like quarter-acre lots. Maybe less. Some areas along our coast have been developed like that. (But never inland.)

Most New England towns now require 2 acre building losts to combat sprawl and preserve rural character.
