    Remove a couple dozen pieces of decor and I would live in this house.

    Some of the woodwork in the flooring is beautiful.

    Christopher Mark


    From an early age, Christopher Mark's philanthropic spirit began to manifest itself. As a young boy, Chris nurtured his interest in making quality items fit for sale in his local area. From selling painted rocks to creating toy figurines in the suburbs surrounding Chicago, Christopher's inventiveness continued into adulthood. As a teenager, Chris founded Mark Miniatures. The company produced exclusive collections of collectible, hand-painted figurines of various themes and periods of time. Chris Mark continued to produce the lead-cast figurines for over 20 years. At the company's peak, the figurines were offered in catalogues such as Bergdorf Goodman as well as other exclusive retail sales channels. The gift sets produced then remain highly sought after by miniature collectors around the globe. As a descendant of the legendary steel pioneer, Clayton Mark, Chris remains driven to create and bring his visions to life. In the early 2000s, Christopher's ingenuity and inventive nature guided him to draft plans for a 35,000 square foot castle estate in the mystical forestland of Woodstock, Connecticut.



    Gotta love them starting with his philanthropic spirit but there being absolutely no examples of it, instead we learn he painted rocks as a child

    What makes it philanthropic is that he sold those hand-painted rocks. Good man, imo.

    Just thinking about that poor person who doesn’t know how to use a microwave. Everything exploding all over their belly button…shuddering at the thought of a microwave being placed above a stove, which is the standard for pretty much all newly built home models

    I know the buck-tooth columns are the focus, but the solar panels (I think) on the roof being askew would piss me off every time I looked up at them. How hard is it to square shit up?

    I love the signage.
    I also love how the homeowner probably emphatically declined when the listing agent asked if they wanted to clear that out and put in a stage loveseat or something.
