Wow. Wish I could see more views of the upstairs bedrooms in the home. Need to assess whether I would spend my $190 million dollars here. Now…let’s say there was a nice person who decided to give me this grand manse, I would take it in a minute…dress it up a bit and settle in right by the pool or walking the gardens. Would be a great place for parties too. Anyone offering this home to me? Hello? Anyone???
Would you take it or leave it? Do tell!
