Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported on University of Miami football player-turned-trial lawyer Jim Ferraro and his 23,000 square foot West Chop complex. The home, according to WSJ is a, “five-building complex—with 14 bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, a pool, a basketball court, a tennis court, a bocce ball court and a putting green.”
Another oversized Island house that has been in the news since last year is the 8,200-square-foot house being built by Adam Zoia on the former Harrison property overlooking Quitsa Pond that is visible from the road.
Back in December, we polled MVPatch readers to see whether or not they felt there should be a limit on house size. Over 60% of our readers felt that they should be. Now we want to know what you think is too big? Is 4,000 square feet your max? Or are you comfortable topping out at something like 12,000 square feet. Does the idea of a 23,000 square foot home make your skin crawl or do you think everyone should be able to build as big a house as they please?
To give you some perspective, a football field is 58,000 square feet and the is 5,500 square feet.
