This house with its three-car garage is representative of the style homes built in New Jersey in the last two decades: large homes built in larger developments. Not so bad, because the structures are all similar. I've even seen one house with a four-car garage. My personal preference? Small house (with space dedicated for an art studio, of course!) on a large piece of property.

What's harder for me to understand is the tearing down of an existing home in a neighborhood and putting up a much larger one among the remaining small homes, usually with not much property left for enjoying the outdoors. The view is then "jarring" to the senses and, honestly, I'd prefer to see the larger homes on a large piece of land. All things in proportion.
