"Inspired by a passion for French architecture and designed with a goal to create the appearance of a centuries-old estate transported from the French countryside, there are few properties that match the magnificence of this home. The roof is a masterpiece in itself, with seven different textures of antique terra cotta tiles all designed to resemble a home that has been added to over the centuries. Inside, a grand entrance welcomes you into a stunning living room with two hand-carved seventeen-foot stone fireplaces and a vaulted ceiling with rustic beams reaching well over thirty-five feet in height. The entire home is designed to host large gatherings and nowhere is this better demonstrated than in the kitchen where cooking is made easy with two separate islands, a butler's pantry, pizza oven and an incredible LaCornue French range and oven. Beautiful French doors open from the formal dining room, family room and main hallway to an outdoor courtyard with a 400-year-old fountain imported from a small town in France. Intricately carved nineteenth-century doors open up into a stunning main-level master suite that contains the perfect combination of elegance and comfort. With three additional bedroom suites on the upper level and a two-bedroom guest house in the back of the property, family and friends are pampered with privacy and elegance. The Old-World authenticity of the home extends throughout the estate where plaster walls, cathedral ceilings, gallery hallways, rustic metal light fixtures, stained glass windows, a 600-year-old fireplace and 400-year-old magnificent limestone floors all maintain the charm of the French countryside. In addition to all of the charm, the property is also designed to pamper with a Lutron smart home system, a phenomenal theater room, exercise room, sauna, spa, outdoor pool and pool house, and art studio."
