The book that I am presenting today can be regarded as a sum of best Luxury Homes history. At least, the XIX and the twentieth century . 100 houses are outlined in the interior, which teach you a few that are best for me .

All painted white, very wide columns , a almost reinvented classicism is what has this house. The interior is reported as a whole, by aisles. Surrounded by greenery and the countryside , their view is perhaps the greatest privilege of this house of author.
