Located in Bucks County, PA, Fonthill looks like an amazing place to visit. And quite an extraordinary escape from everyday life:

Fonthill is a concrete castle that reflects Mercer's interest in ceramic tiles from Europe, Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. The majority of his tile collection is inset into the concrete walls of the structure. For more on this amazing built tribute to decoration, see the September 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Living.
