Indeed, with its uncannily columned façade, this recently listed 6,553-square-foot home in Spicewood, Texas, joins the patriotic ranks of such convincing copycats as Virginia's phony White House and uh, other phony White House.

The vaguely country-Western decor and faux-stone walls aren't for everyone, but like the brokerbabble decrees, "This is a home for those who love the Texas Spirit." In other words: don't mess with the next owner. Here, a look:
