Chateau d'Usse, Estate of the Day
Yesterday I showed you a restored chapel, today's home has a similar style but is very new. This home was part of the Street of Dreams in Longwood, Florida this year, in fact it was the winner, for best in show, landscape design, architectural design and interior design. The Grand Chateau d'Usse is on three acres in the the new home development of Lake Club of Markham Woods Rd.
The ornate five-bedroom home has an Italian theme starting with 30' travertine arches on the exterior. Inside this home, has a formal living room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. There is also a formal dining room for diner parties, which are made easier by a wine cellar and a caterer's kitchen. The home is full of extravagant details such as a bookshelf filled den which hides a hidden door that takes you to the master bedroom closet which is large enough to include a laundry station. The master suite includes a fireplace, computer-controlled shower and a hidden television as well as a private patio. The wood theater room has its own bar and beverage center. The pool area includes a lazy river, island seating, fire pit, waterfall, and three beach areas. One wing of the house has two guest cabanas which open out onto the back patio with the summer kitchen, television, fireplace and bar. It is listed at $9.7 million.
