Another Mcmansion

This 5 bedroom 4 bath was a beauty. I knew the inside of the house and thought it to be a keeper. Now when people buy a home for such high prices they have to improve it to the point of lousing the essence of the original. This home is doubling in size. and size has nothing to do with beauty. We fear that when we sell our house it will be gentrified. This is a dilemma for us. Do we rebuild some of the wood floors that squeak or do we let the new owner tear it down. We have been in our house for 40 years and love every quirk and hope to have it for 10 or so more years to enjoy them. Big doesn't mean better, nor does new mean better.
