After seeing photos of Wijlre Castle in the Netherlands, I'm going to have to add a castle to my dream list of homes. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and very inspiring! The owners are avid art collectors and I'm sure it's no coincidence that they made their home 12 miles outside of Maastricht, the site of the leading art and antiques fair TEFAF. The gardens incorporate many modern and contemporary sculptures and the couple have also built a gallery on the property where they hold exhibitions. Sounds like a dream life to go with a dream home!
