This is my kind of house!

The Vanderbilt mansion at Hyde Park, New York.

Even at the age of ten, I looked disparagingly at the considerable Franklin Delano Roosevelt Estate at Hyde Park.  I found the house, although substantial, boringly understated and “bourgeois.”  I infinitely preferred the gilded European splendor of the Vanderbilts’!!!   😛   😛   😛
