Took a look at the link you provided. Absolutely stunning! Love, love, love what I would consider to be a porte-cochere from the house to the two-car garage. I am a stained wood freak (screw painting the inside trim). I never think a home is too dark because of stained wood (providing, of course, that it's a nice wood and a pretty stain). Of course, that wouldn't be a problem with the light coming in from all those windows. Was simply salivating at the thought of using library/raised paneling in some of the "turret" rooms. I can't even fathom trying to keep a place like that clean! Of course, I would assume that, if you can afford a place like that, you can afford to hire some help. Liked the outside access to/from the office. Wish I could see the type more clearly to make sure I'm identifying rooms correctly...then again, it's fun figuring out what I'd use them for.
