A Beaux Arts mansion, 60 studs wide x 30 studs deep. Comments appreciated - let me know your feedback on the model, if you want different/more photos posted or how this page can be improved.
It is constructed entirely with basic bricks and tiles (excluding the white and translucent pieces that form the windowpanes, the curved arch pieces, and the many lightsabers are used in the balustrades).
For real world examples of Beaux Arts mansions, search for the following in google images: "Duke Semans mansion", "William Starr Miller House", "Joseph Raphael De Lamar House"

The front, side and roof:
The base/first floor has heavy rustication:
The second floor incorporates red brick with ornate limestone trim, topped with a 2 layer cornice.
There are two main layers to the cornice.
The red brick is set back relative to the limestone trim:
The roof is steeply sloped and the edges are trimmed in copper:
Can be seperated into three pieces for transportation and construction/modification purposes.
Excellent work. I notice some building techniques which I have never seen, like the corner facade of the second floor. I especially like the roof, it's awesome!
Maybe 2 tips if I may: try changing colours to sand-green and dark-red? Also maybe create a pavement with some pedestrians and some more details on the first floor, like lamps, signs, plants etc to give the building a liveable function.
Thanks for the comments. You are right, it can be taken apart in sections, I've posted a photo to show that. Let me know what details you'd like and I'll put more photos up.

Looks like this one has some interessting building techniques, so some interior/detail views would definatly be nice. It looks like the whole thing can be taken apart in sections, right┐?
