Today, Land of Excess has been looking through our old files, including stuff that we haven’t used.  We are struck afresh by this photo. “Signature ‘Versaille [sic] Style’ grand curved foyer staircases humble you upon entry….”   The online real estate listing really says this.  Oy.  We gawk, too, at the painting propped up so casually against the banister at left.  At what hotel painting sale in the Greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area was this purchased?  $3,400,000 gets you we-don’t-know-what-garage-wise.  And TEN full and 1 half bath and 8 bedrooms, all in Great Falls, VA.
