Some might find this Water Mill showplace better suited to the That's Rather Hideous treatment, but it's kinda hard to deny that this place has style. Decked out by decorator-to-the-stars Thomas Britt, the $12.5 million palace-inspired property boasts a 90-foot reflecting pool (not to be confused with the other non-reflective swimming pool), some secret passageways, and an 100-deep allée of cherry trees. According to the WSJ, the home was completed 15 years ago by notorious East End architect Peter Cook, who calls the home "a bit of a folly, but a wonderful one." Couldn't agree more. [WSJ]
