That is cool--I have been there and that is what it looks like! I was highly amused, though, during my visit--there is absolutely no furniture in the place, except for one tester bed and a few chairs in the bedroom salon---the guides kept telling us that the revolutionaries in 1789 burned much of it, and that what wasn't burnt, was in the Frick Museum in NYC. I kept thinking I should just have gone to NY.
