    1. The one in Tuscany is classy and the one on the coast of Cornwall is in a wonderful setting but the others are just awful. Money does not always buy taste or style for that matter.

    2. All that ‘ If you want to see what God thought of money; just take a look at those to whom he has given it ‘ applies, but some of these houses that ‘ Disgusted of Belgravia disapproves ‘ compare very favourably to former jerry built City clerk’s four floor Chelsea houses put up when the Circle Line was established

      As does my favourite F. Scott Fitzgerald quote,’ If ever you feel like disapproving of someone; remember not everyone has had your advantages ‘
