Good Afternoon All,

My apologies for taking up board space with this, but I wonder if anybody knows of any websites (particulary image rich ones), that discuss the phenomenon of "mansionization."

I'm aiding in the creation of a (PowerPoint) presentation on the subject for a local community, and am having some difficulty in tracking down quality images.

Any guidance of course is greatly appreciated, and my thanks in advance
:-D

I would contact the following cities, if you have not already:

Palo Alto, Huntington Beach, Redondo Beach, CA
Concord, Mass, Newton, Mass

These were the big ones when I was researching a "floor area limit" on custom homes.

Also, Google brings up 1,470 sites-many of them are news articles, but they may have photographs.

The National Trust has dealt with the issue, in the context of tearing down older and historic properties to build new mansions in desirable neighborhoods.
