The saying goes, “you can never have too much of a good thing”, but what if the ‘good thing’ was too much to begin with? The question might not make much sense, although neither does this stately ‘summer home’ owned by a Russian oligarch.  This recently built ‘cottage’, or palace, is a smaller copy of the Catherine Palace in Pushkin, but with extravagant interiors that perhaps surpass the original. Love it or loathe it, this property is certainly something to feast the eyes on!
