Who doesn't like castles? If I could have my choice of domicile it would most certainly be a castle.

Same here. Like neither the aesthetic or the functionality

I don't. Especially fako castles inspired by medieval times but built a few dozen years ago.

An English country manor is much more appealing than a gloomy and dull castle.

Wizards and mages are different things. Get with it, Ed.

Just to edumacate you, a wizard gets his dps from nukes while a mage typically summons pets to kill stuff. ^_^

Although Brideshead is, uh, fictional, both the BBC and new version have used Castle Howard for their stand-in.

I loved how in "Being There" Biltmore is somehow supposed to be in DC.

I've always like Wharton Esherick's home/studio in PA. There's not really any photos online that do it justice.
