New houses?

Sorry, but... no.

New construction generally sucks on a variety of levels unless you're unnaturally wealthy and can afford a money-is-no-object custom build.

In my view, the best houses are Victorian era, built after the asvent of gas lighting and before electricity.

Why?

Because the 12 to 14 foot ceilings with the baroque trim and fixtures (diffusion) and bay windows that break up the flat walls and right angle corners are acoustically superior to the typical low ceilinged, box like, flimsy builds of modern construction.

But that's just me.

Apologies for the digression.
