New Home Inspiration
A mere two years after moving into this
antique 1964 home, I've decided on the inspiration homes for its replacement. (The original idea was to do a reno, but I gave it up as a hopeless waste of money.)
Burgie House, a northern Scottish country home dating from 1800 but with large additions in 1912.
Now a "holiday home", it is partially built from stones from the ruined 17th Century Burgie Castle.

The 28,175 sf city lot with restrictive zoning poses some challenges. The footprint--with hoped for zoning variances--will be 110'-120' wide by 43' feet deep; the front is on a curve; height is limited to 36'; and where the heck do you put the garages.
We shall see.
