French Country Chateau

French Country Chateau

This elegant, two-story French manor encompasses 7,200 square feet, plus a 900 square-foot cabana beside the vanishing edge pool. The home’s colored concrete terraces, inlaid with limestone borders, surround the house on three sides.

Importing many of the finish materials from old European estates, JMA’s expert carpenters crafted the exquisite interior trim on site – there are five miles of millwork! The craftsmanship is evident in the cherry-paneled library with its polished granite fireplace, as well as the cantilevered spiral staircase and foyer skylight, focal points in the round entry. The home incorporates state-of-the-art controls for the HVAC, electrical, security and communications systems. Excavating the rocky site did not require blasting, but did involve removing one rock the size of a small car.
