Continuing to examine and hold a lively discussion of the Northern Virginia Real Estate market.
Palladium was selling for about $185 an ounce yesterday.I wonder how much that makes these houses worth. They all apparently have "palladium" windows, according to a key word search on FranklyMLS.
Sorry to disappoint, but that style has *nothing* to do with the metal.From answers.com...A window with a central arched section flanked by two narrow rectangular sectionsNamed after Andrea Palladio, 1508-1580, an Italian Renaissance architect. Palladianism was revived in England in the early 18th century by Lord Burlington and Colen Campbell and influenced American architecture in the late 18th century. Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and the University of Virginia are two examples of Palladian influence.In Greek Revival style, Palladian windows evolve into rectangular tripartite forms.
joel and sonia, I think Harriet was pointing out the error in the listings (i.e. Palladium instead of Palladian). My favorite error so far has been "Korean countertops". I see fewer of these errors these days. Probably due to fewer newby realtors.
I tried to be funny, but fell flat obviously!We have a number of theologians in the family so we jokingly call them "pelagian" or "semi-pelagian" windows.
I thought it was funny even though I didn't get the reference. I just assumed it was the window manufacturer. Palladium(TM) Windows!"Korean countertops"?
EXCELLENT to see some decent houses in decent close-in neighborhoods dropping through $375/sqft...
Groan...my mistake.Can't see any humor until after the first cup of coffee. ;-(Seems funny now.... :-)Just goes to show you, housing insanity has gone so far that I could actually *see* someone making that mistake. After all, six months ago people were ripping out walls to get the copper wiring...
