Decoded: the Most 'Ample' Listings in the Country

Welcome back to The Brokerbabble Glossary, where Curbed takes a word or phrase that shows up repeatedly in listings and deciphers its true meaning. Ideas? Hit up the tipline.

The word "ample," much like the word "generous," seems to imply that what's being offered is more than one needs, or even deserves, and that anyone who says otherwise is just a whiner. "If you've got enough space for a gigantic portrait of your cat and a few potted plants on weird little pedestals," this listing seems to say, "how much more do you really think you're entitled to?"

Is this listing saying that the house has a lot of rooms, or that each of the rooms is plenty big? Because either way, CHECK! Plenty well-lit, too.

What? The yard isn't big enough for you? It's too filled with garbage? Just suck it up.

As opposed to lots of space that isn't ample?
