Look Inside This $60M French Chateau-Style Home That’s For Sale
The inside is even more gorgeous than the outside!
If you happen to have millions saved up for a down payment on a new home, this is the house for you!
This massive, French chateau-style house is now on the market. Here are all the details you need to know.
The List Price Is $60M
Yes, you read that right. This home, inspired by the likes of Versailles (the famous French palace, shown below), could be yours for a cool $60 million. That means your minimum down payment would be $6 million.
In case you’re wondering how a house could fetch such a price, let me just emphasize that it’s massive — like, 22,000-square-feet on eight acres of land. It’s concealed behind 22-foot-high iron gates.
The Home Has 8 Bedrooms
The ornate design extends throughout the house. In other words: You won’t find any mid-century modern here!
It Has 10 Full Bathrooms And 5 Half-Bathrooms
Because when you buy a home like this, you’re bound to host a lot of great parties and you’ll need plenty of restrooms for all your guests.
The House Has Its Own Name
The home is so big that it has its own name: Maison Des Jardins, which translates loosely to “House of Gardens.”
It’s Not Located In France
While you may expect to find this home nestled in the French countryside, this house is actually located in an elite town on Long Island outside New York City. This massive manse is located in the village of Old Brookville, which is within the town of Oyster Bay on the north shore of the island.
The Home Is Practically New
Perhaps the most interesting fact about this home? Despite looking like something straight out of 1700s France, it was only built in 2017!
It’s Owned By The Creator Of Hypnotiq Liqueur
The house was built for Raphael Yakoby, best known for creating Hpnotiq liqueur. It was designed by architects Douglas R. Schneider and Michael J. Wallin, who recently told Private Air magazine it’s his “best work to-date.”
This Is No Ordinary Staircase
Once you step inside, you’ll see the old-world opulence on full display, starting with the Italian-marble floors and a stairway inspired by one at the palace of Versailles.
Good News: It Comes Furnished!
Below is a look at the sprawling living room. Did I mention the furnishings are all included? According to Private Air, the rugs date back to the 1600s.
There’s No Shortage Of Entertaining Space
Below is another entertaining area, which looks like it came out of a movie about Marie Antoinette.
No Squeezing In Required For This Dining Room
There’s probably enough space for you to host the extended family for Thanksgiving in this dining room. What do you think?
Of Course, The Kitchen Has Custom-Made Cabinets
The Kitchen Is Stunning — And Has A Custom Hood
More marble lines the rest of the kitchen, which has a pretty sweet stove as well.
You Could Gather Plenty Of Chefs Around This Island
Looks like there’s no shortage of prep space in this kitchen!
The Light Fixtures Alone Are Worth Millions
There are chandeliers throughout the home, adding up to $2.5 million worth of lighting fixtures alone, according to Realtor.com.
You May Wake Up Feeling Like You’re In Another Century
If your current bedroom lacks a chandelier and sitting area, now you know what to work towards!
Some Of The Fireplaces Are From The 19th Century
The home may be new, but some of the marble fireplaces are from in the 1800s. The owners didn’t cut any corners in this home!
Other Luxury Touches
But that’s not all! Maison des Jardins also has a fitness center, wine room, billiards room and movie theater, as well as a five-car garage.
And, Of Course, There’s A Pool!
The backyard also features gardens, a patio and a heated in-ground swimming pool. So you’d basically never have to leave the house again!
What do you think? Would you want to buy this if you had several million dollars to spare?
