  1. A few very nice things - the fireplace in photo #1, the magnificent wine cellar (and I hate wine), and some exquisite joinery in the library. One really bad thing is the bathtub in the master bath. It only accommodates one person at a time, and why even bother since it has no jets, no bubbles, no hydro-massage, nothing. It's just a big ol' trough. Drag it outside, use it to water the livestock. Replace it with what a mansion deserves - a functioning, large size jacuzzi spa, and have some fun in the tub! Overall, a very nice offering, in a gorgeous setting.

    1. I agree with you! I really feel that the master bathroom leaves much to be desired. If I were the buyer, one of the first things I'd do is sink money into redoing the bathroom!
