    How can one person have owned TWO Imperial Fabergé Eggs?! Come see the Post heiress' fantastical collection of art, fashion and jewels at this magnificent estate. Take a tour with the lovely Janice.

    Great for just wandering around. Very eclectic mix between the outdoor gardens and the ornate mansion. I don't recommend trying to walk to here! Very off the beaten path.

    The estate and gardens were beautiful. The docent tour was well worth the wait. The cafe's strawberry walnut salad was delicious.

    This beautifully maintained mansion boasts one of the most remarkable collections of Russian decorative art outside of Russia. Enjoy afternoon tea after one of their docent or audio tours.
