trophy home
 n.— «The biggest change I’ve seen? It’s the size, the trophy homes.…That’s not Nantucket. People used to build with common sense. But the trend I’ve seen is that somebody wants a house bigger than the guy next to him. The billionaire over the millionaire.» —“HDC celebrates Golden Anniversary” by Jason Graziadei Inquirer & Mirror (Nantucket, Mass.) July 21, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
