Do you like the Munsters?

These people love them, obviously!!
The two sites are of the house in Waxahachie, Texas. Very cool. BTW, some of the picture popups, take a second, but, they show different angles of the rooms, so, wait before you hit the back button. Every window and door shows a part of the house.
This is a little of the story about the house

This gives you a little tour.

DOH, I forgot to put this in the poll.
I would love to live in a dupilicate of Tara, the plantation house from "Gone With the Wind"

I love that show too!! Cousin it is my favorite. My oldest son would put a sheet and a hat on and wobble around making gibberish noises when he was about 4 or 5

Glenbogle House, the victorian pile used in the BBC TV series set in Scotland called 'Monarch of the Glen'

No, TG - that looks more like a B&B or a pub - The house that is called 'Glenbogle' in the series is actually called Arverickie house..

Here's a photograph

If you notice the picture Texasgirl posted is actually included in that link. It is the Clan Macpherson Museum, and it said it is across the road. Interesting. I'm with you Ishbel, that is an amazing looking "house."

The Ardverikie estate is quite large - they allow visitors to walk on one side of the loch, but not near the house.

Barbara - Interesting info re the museum... I bet they get lots of Canadian, Aussie, American and New Zealand visitors, all with the name MacPherson! Maybe the museum is at the gates of the estate.
