Yet when Marie Antoinette built an idyllic faux farm, she was beheaded.

Of all the old houses we've looked at here and OLI, I can't think of one I prefer to The Loring House. I find it almost incomprehensible that they were not able to raise the money needed to preserve the property. And the pending semi-destruction of part of it is just shocking to me. (If the new owner needs to tear down parts of the house to afford to live there, she shouldn't have bought it in the first place.)
