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.

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

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.

Not a TV house, but the Hearst Castle. Not sure if it was used in the making of the movie "Citizen Cane." Went on a tour once, and can't help wondering what it might have been like to live there during its heyday and all the celebrity parties.


Here's a link to take an on-line tour:

My favorite TV house is "Millstone Manor", a farm that was used in the Brittish TV show "Grace and Favour" (known here in the U.S. as "Are You Being Served Again?")

I would like to know if his paintings are from inspiration or just from out of his head. He obviously liked Cobblestone houses and he brings them to life. Very good artist!

Addam's family all the way! I just love Victorian houses, design and furniture! Couple that with my fav holiday (lol, I think you've all picked up on what that is by now ) and I'd be in TV house heaven...Now if only I had Mortica's figure to go with the house
