This project represents an owner’s lifelong dream, brought to fruition by a team of architects, contractors, and the best craftsman. You will awe over the grandeur, elegance, and prominence of the Château de Versailles and the Château de Vaux le Vicomte. This home provides a unique environment which includes massive twenty-two feet high iron gates flanked by limestone piers open to an allée of flowering pear trees, through which the driveway leads. 17TH century home offers a glimpse of the chimneys cupola of the château. As anticipation builds and the pear allée fades, the eight-acre property opens to reveal a cobble lined forecourt. Set atop limestone plinths, the château’s height commands attention, while a soft limestone façade and intricate ironwork welcomes all.

Oriented in an east-west direction, the one hundred sixty-foot-long château basks in southern exposure. Its ridges reach a height of fifty feet, with chimneys stretching to sixty feet. The main body of the château consists of a central curved roof with pediment, two bay wide wings then connect to two outer mansard roofed towers. The graduated courses of Vermont slate create a roofscape upon which over forty dormers are placed.
