Quite an attractive facade. Huge, filled with amazingly wealthy artefacts.It houses the worlds largest chandelier...massive...beautiful. The dining room table is fitted with a train with a track that runs the gamut offering cigars and drinks. That stops and starts when a decanter is replaced...novel piece. The rooms that have old outfits of nobility are very interesting...as is the silver howdahs... More
