So maybe if I keep dreaming about ridiculously over the top properties and actually remember to buy a lotto ticket someone will perhaps listen to my dreams.
So today I'm taking you on a tour of a truly remarkable property that has just undergone a huge renovation that makes my little Tasmania dream look like a doll house.
It's The Mount, the home that Edith Wharton had built in 1902 in Lenox
. Wharton as the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize and authored many works, including The House of Mirth and Ethan Frome - now if this house isn't perfect as an over the top down south getaway I don't know what is! Massachusetts
Oh and the inside is probably a bit more formal than I would like - I dont really want to be cringing when kids run around the halls screaming at the top of their voices dreading what they are going to break. But still I wouldnt be complaining.
Oh also - the last picture is the woman herself - how lucky to live in a house like this?
