Sounds wonderful. I could fill the mansion with exotic pets (and horses--assuming one can go outside) and maintain multiple intense letter correspondences, just like Lord Byron. (If I had enough animals, I could probably remain relatively sane and happy) And if I needed meds to help with the inevitable craziness, I'd just order them from an online pharmacy. If those eventually stop working, I'd give in and acquire two or three robots. We could start a band. (Oooh, one of the robots could be like one of those old Victorian-era automatons that played the harpsichord) Ideally ones that could speak and run errands for me. I realize I could have my employees run errands for me, but I'd much rather a robot (or trained raven) do it. (I'm imagining a hyper-realistic humanlike robot-- wearing a shawl and sunglasses-- wheeling into a 7-11 in an electric wheelchair and knocking over various displays and small children while attempting to grab the specific candy bars I requested. And then just zooming away without paying.)

I imagine the biggest struggle (aside from the social isolation) would be actually using all of that time and money somewhat productively as opposed to just playing video games/watching netflix and ordering weird stuff on ebay all day.

You can indeed go outside (the house has massive private grounds) but alone. Your horses will be cared for and prepared for you by your ostlers, grooms etc but they will not be present when you go to the stable to mount up. You can have all the animals you like: you can also, if you so wish, contribute large sums to animal charities, or any other charity you wish. You can shop online and your delivered goods will be brought to a specific room in the mansion set aside for that purpose.

Or, knowing you, a suite of rooms!

I love the idea of the less-than-perfect smash-and-grabatons! You can just imagine the conversation: "Hey! That robot didn't pay!"
"Oh yeah, that's one of the robots belonging to that odd woman who lives up at the big house on the hill. Don't worry: she always wires the payment later, including any damages. Bottle of Jack, was it? Hmm: looks like the robot took the last one..."

Point of interest: what's that Russian-looking sig of yours mean?

And what are you going to do once you find it? Just chomp it?

My point still stands.

actually I saw this ****ty 2016 space movie "Passengers" that had an interesting premise like this where I guy wakes up early on a 100 year trip where he was supposed to be in deep asleep

and he gets the equivalent of a mansion with no face to face contact but everything he could ever want

it's fun for 15 minutes of movie then he's desperately trying to wake people up this is basically how I would see this going down

(the movie cops out hard because he does actually wake someone up ruining the premise)

You'd have to extract it. It's pretty simple tbh. BUT NOT FREE. SAD!

It has its place. I think shrooms are my favourite.

I propose a third option: You can keep the money and interact with people, but you are required to live in Florida and can never leave.
