When the noted dog breeder and judge David Roche passed away in 2013, he left behind one of the most astounding collections of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European antiques in the southern hemisphere. Roche’s treasure-filled former residence—Australia’s Fermoy House—opened as a private museum this month. Guests can browse Roche’s expansive collection, which includes around 3,000 items estimated to be worth in excess of $70 million.
