Since I started reading John Fowler: Prince of Decorators, I've become obsessed with stately old British homes. (Fowler decorated so many.) Sezincote, above, is a sublimely eccentric example.
Built around 1805 as a Moghul folly, exotic Indian-influenced Sezincote served as inspiration for the now more famous Brighton Pavilion. These days the house may be rented for parties and weddings; I'd love to see Mary McDonald put together an event there.
BTW: For more on Sezincote's architecture, gardens and interesting mix of global styles, be sure to visit its official site.
