    Nice location and I like the outside of the house. It's interesting.

    The decor has to go, but I love the setting.

    I would love to take it, sit it down in the middle of Victorian Village, Columbus, and make the gay Vicvillagers pissed with envy. Just the kind of thing many of them would pee their panties for.

    I do love the front of it.

    It would look great on a hillside in one of the hillier rural areas around here.

    I could live with it - just for the chance to visit Austria.

    Surprisingly, I really like it.
    The landscape is great, it's a great setting.

    I forgot to mention before that I LOVE that staircase. I'd walk up and down 300 times a day, because i think it'd make me feel grand, ha!

    Don't like Austria, don't like the house.
