It's certainly not short on spectacle.

If this house was staged for sale, that's the most elaborate (not to say over the top) staging job I've seen.

We saw this house a year or more ago, I think. It's quite the palace, isn't it . . .

We visited this house when Don was alive. Seems a little "over-staged" for these photos. Don was a great architect and did some magnificent work.
