“Il n’y a pas de cle pour le Bonheur, la parte est toujours ouverte.”
A popular French proverb states: “There is no key for happiness, the door is always open.” Which is exactly what you will find in this remarkable French chateau – the open door to total happiness! Just follow the brick steps leading to the hand-forged iron door, opening to a 9-foot high foyer of handsome, dark hardwood floors. The formal living room features a stone fireplace; next to it, the large dining room includes two beautiful arches and a charming bay window overlooking the patio. The family room, also with a stone fireplace, has a custom, built-in bar, and French doors leading to the pool area.
The family kitchen cries out bon appetit: a breakfast nook surrounded by windows, all facing the pool; a huge island, with a lovely French country chandelier; custom, wood-covered appliances, including a professional Viking, 6-burner stove; travertine flooring, custom cabinetry inported from France. Two guest bedrooms share an impeccably upgraded bathroom, and the third guest room has an ensuite bath. A powder room and laundry room are also on the first level.
An elegantly carved, iron staircase winds to the master suite, encompassing the second level. As with the entire home, meticulous renovations provide the owners with 21st century conveniences, while still retaining “old-world allure,”including motorized black-out screens and custom his-and-hers closets. The immense bathroom, with marble floors and fireplace, carved cabinetry, and oversized shower, with seating, is wonderful. But the main attraction is the stunning, free-standing soaking tub, guaranteeing contentment at the end of a busy day!
Outside, a pergola runs the length of the back of the home, and beyond, providing ample room for dining and lounging. Two grassy areas lie on both sides of the spacious pool, fountain, and spa – badminton, anyone? A luxurious home, with abundant upgrades: 3-car garage with epoxy floor, furnace, air conditioning, solar, etc., etc., etc. What is lacking? A family who will grace its rooms with passion and love. Agree? Oui!!
