It's WSJ, so it's behind a paywall:

I think he missed the point.

Or, maybe it's like a TV movie is "inspired by true events."

Beautiful home. You're right - "Walden" and this house are very different things.

Even if I could afford it I'm not sure I would want to own a white elephant like that.

I've always admired mansions but they can absorb a fortune to build and maintain.

I guess DW and I are more into cottages. ;)

"Our life is frittered away with detail. Simplify, simplify." This is inspired by Walden like Jim Jones was inspired by the New Testament.  I think you may have skimmed some parts.

Well, it does have a pond, and relative to other 20+ million dollar properties in Vail (like this one) it is a lot less gaudy.

Love that house. Wouldn't want to own it, but would love to stay there a few nights on vacation.
