    What a bunch of class acts in Edgemoor. Egging the house and breaking windows? Seems to me like the people living there and not the new house is what’s making that neighborhood ugly.

    “This house represents a deliberate departure in both the thought process and the realization of current building trends in the neighborhood,” the AIA website says. “Instead of building a large house with pretentious ties to the rural past, this new house is smaller with a stronger relationship to the modern, urban area that Bethesda has become.”

    …Or, it’s just an ugly box.
