  3. Thanks for pointing that out because that individual would be able to find a negative aspect in his or her mind, even if this was an article about humans achieving world peace.

  4. Ellie I know that there are some better houses in this area to showcase for Annandale. Can you please pick some houses that are less garish. There is a really nice new renovation (my opinion) and a rather large one on Sleepy Hollow Road; sort of green taupe and unusual on a corner plot. This may be a much better example of how we may want to be represented.

    Thank you, a concerned neighbor that would love for Annandale to have some good PR.

      I have no problem with the first house. I think it just needs some landscaping and trees but I know nothing about it other than the outside. I have seen MUCH more hideous McMansion's.

  7. What do you mean it is not in the location they claim. This house is on Vellex Lane in the Wilburdale Neighborhood. I know because I drive past it a few times every day.

  8. The new homes in the old Campbell & Ferrara site are really lovely in & out and ought to be for the $800.000 and up price tag. Several are already inhabited.
