Craigdarroch Castle

This place is just gorgeous.  It's the former home of the Dunsmuir Family, although Mr. Dunsmuir died before the house was finished!  The woodwork inside is amazing and warm. I also want all of the stained glass and there's a jewelry box I simply must have!!  It's also haunted.

  2. The glass looks Art Deco to me, so I'm assuming late 19th/early 20th century?

  3. Very good Val! It was started in the late 1800s and finished in the early 1900s, although Mr. Dunsmuir died b/f completion.

  5. Damn, this dumbo said the right dates, but the wrong artistic movement - should have said Art NOuveau!
