Yeah, that happens in California, when a "Historic House" is bought by someone that wants the land, but not the house.
You can't legally renovate the house out of it's historical period (lots of regulation about it), so the contractor has an "oops" moment, and Mr. Software Mogul gets a house built to his (or her) specs. Usually with a two-story "great hall" and a fan window over the front door.
