Proportion. Look it up.

An article in today's Post brings up what I have noticed and abhorred for years--the trend to construct homes that are WAY TOO BIG for the lots they sit on, and worse, out of all scale with the rest of their neighborhoods. I do not understand why someone would want to build or live in a place that takes up every square inch of land that it occupies, to the point where you're cheek-to-jowl with your neighbors. Perhaps its a combination of the price of acreage in this area and the needs of people with families, but it still seems impractical, unsightly, annoying, and short-sighted. Yet another reason why I probably won't spend all of my life in Northern Virginia.
