Does an estate have to match the surroundings, a Western estate in Colorado, a Mediterranean style home in Florida or California? Today's estate is not the type of home you might expect to find in quaintly charming, Dorset, Vermont. The country estate is on nearly 19 acres of land (including four ponds) and is a newer build (2004). It has six bedroom suites, a walnut library, home office, sunroom, entertainment room, exercise room, hot tub, sauna and more spread out over almost 12,000 square feet. The home has the look of a European chateau mixed with a Western ski house and is full of special details such as a heavy antique wooden door and coffered ceilings. Those tile floors look a little chilly for a winter home and there seems to be a bit of design schizophrenia between the tile and stone rustic look of the lower floors and the flowery wallpaper-heavy look of the upstairs. This home is listed at $8.7 million.
