Property Description

BUILT WITH LOVE! Nestled among live oaks & informal gardens in Bocage Estates, this magnificent French chateau displays sophistication on a grand scale. Designed 30 years ago by Architect Stan Routh & built by Master Builders Bob & Mickey Cunard, the home is an example of why quality materials & craftsmanship never go out of style. This home was built for living, loving & entertaining & it impresses from the moment the 20 ft. entry doors swing open. A breathtaking spiral staircase is anchored by a handcrafted newel post, while custom balustrades line the balcony & bridge above. A library of walnut bookcases is at the top of the staircase, while a secret passageway leads to a Romeo & Juliet balcony overlooking the grand entrance. Natural light bathes it all from the cupola above. Benjamin Moore’s “Steam” highlights the impressive open entry, where natural walnut is stained with high gloss mahogany. Massive chandelier in foyer motors 60 ft. down, a feature often needed but seldom included. This home has an international flair: French ironwork was salvaged from a schoolyard, interior wood doors came from an English monastery that was mostly demolished in WWII, one of the home’s porches is protected by wrought iron salvaged from an abandoned town in the south of France, & LR & foyer has a medallion from an Italian artisan. Kitchen showcases s/s appliances, including a South Bend commercial gas range, icemaker, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, two dishwashers & icemaker. Family holidays will be cherished in the formal DR which comfortably accommodates a table for 20! Outside, the home’s gardens are spectacular! Mounds of flowering azaleas surround gardens flanked by an 18 ft. brick wall. Terraced brick courtyards with English roses & a balcony off the upstairs library views it all. This wonderful French chateau has clearly endured the test of time & is ready for new memories to begin. Must see to appreciate all the details. Complete list of amenities is available.
