This ornate house takes its inspiration from a French Chateau. Arched double doors of wrought iron and glass open to an impressive columned foyer with statuary, a high ceiling and chandelier that hint at the opulence within. The elaborate features continue outdoors with a waterfall koi pond and a stone bridge.
