The American McMansion is officially a dying breed of architectural design, which is good news for those who consider the unnecessarily massive and disproportionate homes an eyesore.
The blog Worst of McMansions, also known as McMansion Hell by its URL, has taken on the daunting task of chronicling these monstrosities and helping the general public understand exactly what makes these homes so hideous.
The anonymous author, who simply goes by “Kate,” studied architectural acoustics and has been writing about architecture for six years. We’ve asked Kate to gather what she considers to be the ugliest McMansions built in the past five years. Below is her list, accompanied by her own commentary in quotes.
19. Loudoun Co, VA
“Huzzah! Money can actually buy taste! Loudoun County, the wealthiest county in the country, is at the very bottom of the Top 19 List, with this cheap, remarkably boring tract home.”
18. Hunterdon Co, NJ
“Another tract house hub, as evidenced by this dated, low-budget estate.”
17. Prince William Co, VA
“Tract house or cult compound? You decide!”
