Custom Built French Country Chateau Home
Rooted in the rural French countryside, the French Country style includes both modest farmhouse designs, as well as estate-like chateaus. At its roots, the style exudes a rustic warmth and comfortable spaces. Design elements include curved arches, soft lines and stonework. Inside, you’ll find wood beams, detailed trim work and combinations of hardwood and stone floors as specific thematic features. This award-winning home boasts over 5800 square feet of living space, and incorporates modern touches to this old-world architectural theme, with a ‘hidden’ pantry in the Kitchen and a ‘secret’ door that provides private access from the Owners Study to the Bedroom Suite. The design is enhanced by soaring ceilings in the Grand Foyer and Family Rooms, along with custom ceiling and wall treatments throughout. The open Kitchen and oversized island provide the perfect opportunity to gather and entertain. Upstairs offers a Study niche/Library space, an entertaining Loft with space for a pool or gaming table, two suited bathrooms and a spacious Home Theater with stadium seating, projector and large retractable screen. This home also provides ample outdoor space, whether it be an intimate gathering in the private courtyard by the outdoor fireplace and water fountain, time spent on the oversized balcony watching the sunrise or gathering on the spacious Lanai, complete with Grilling Porch and Outdoor Kitchen.
