Mario Buatta's Fabulous Connecticut House

With the Mario Buatta auction taking place today in New York, there's been lots of press about the late great decorator, the "King of Chintz" including the gothic house he purchased in the early 90's with much fanfare.  For various reasons, he hardly started the renovation and then left the house sitting in a state of decay. It was for sale, $500K cash (he paid $400K for it 30+ years ago).  It needs a total renovation but you can easily understand what he saw in this gem of a house.....

Even the barn is stunning....I read somewhere that Mario added the horse heads when he started the renovation that was never completed.
