This French inspired chateau will make your heart race a little faster. The moment I saw it I knew I wanted to share this place with you all because it’s a house that feels formal, but at the same time its elegance is worthy of appreciation.
The house is located in Atherton, California and was built in 2008. With 6 bedrooms, 8 full and 2 half bathrooms, 1.04 acres, a kitchen that will make you drool (sorry, but I almost did!), a two-story living room, home theater, a 4,500 Bottle wine cellar (and it seems to be full!) and a professional spa that makes any hotel feel shabby, but wait until you see the master bathroom! Oh, la la! This 17,000 Sq. Ft. home is for sale and the price tag is as big as the square footage of this place: $24,000,000. But we can still dream, right?
Stunning in every direction.
Notice the beautiful gardens and architecture of this house.
Now You See Now You Don’t
Trees add some privacy to this property.
Very elegant foyer and the front door is simply amazing.
This is the kind of staircase that makes you stop, take a look and admire the craftsmanship.
The two-story living room is very formal, but this kind of house asks for a room like this one.
Please, take a moment to look at the details of this beautiful room.
I like the warm colors in the dining room.
Another view of the dining room.
Look at this paneled study! Even if this is not really your style, I’m sure you can admire the details of this room.
For The Man of The House
Dark paneled walls always feel very masculine, but also timeless.
Nothing was overlooked in this house, including the hallways.
Where the family actually lives.
There’s two very distinctive islands in this kitchen, and please notice the pantry on the left.
This kitchen feels very spacious. The light fixtures were beautifully chosen.
I love seeing big couches in the family room. It’s a room that should feel really comfortable and have space for everyone.
I usually like lighter bathrooms but I can’t say this powder room doesn’t feel elegant and “right” for this house.
Landing to the upper level of the house. I really adore these three windows.
Gorgeous architecture and adorable baby!
Master Bedroom’s Landing Area
This is so beautiful! I love every single detail here.
The elegance continues into the master bedroom.
This bedroom feels very hotel-chic inspired.
The balcony off the master bedroom.
This is my favorite part of the house. I adore this super spacious bathroom. Notice the separate closet in each side.
We rarely see islands in bathrooms, but I think it’s a brilliant idea. The sinks are on each side of the shower.
The colors are so relaxing. Perfect for a bedroom.
I really like this girl’s bedroom and yes, it’s pink and girlish! I can admire some kids rooms that the kid can “grow” with, but we’re a kid only once and I feel bad when I see kids’ bedrooms that are filled with dark and heavy elements. We should embrace our children’s childhood and make it a little more magical, a little more enchanted and why not, a little more “child-like”!
Little One’s Bathroom
This is going to my “inspiration file”. I wish I could see more of this bathroom, but I love the wallpaper, the color pallet and the subway tiled shower that can be seen through the mirror.
Basement Landing Area
This is the area you come when you want to have some fun!
Take a look at the barrel ceilings.
Just For the Special Ones
The 4,500 bottle wine cellar!
Dreamy “home” (are you sure this is at a home?) theater.
The incredible spa area.
Wouldn’t you love to have something like this at home?
Let’s Go Outside!
If you ever get bored staying indoors, take a look at what awaits you outdoors!
Any day, any time!
I’d love to swim here!
A look at the fire pit and the pool house.
Isn’t it the perfect pool house with its own outdoor kitchen?
A place to sit and enjoy your backyard.
I really like how this pool was done. You don’t have to dive, you can get in slowly, perfect for small children.
A nice view from above.
Did you enjoy seeing this house today? There’s so many gorgeous spaces to be admired, don’t you think? I’d love to know what you think of this place!
How was your weekend? It was raining here all the time, so we stayed indoors with the kids but it was really fun. My husband is teaching the kids to play chess and they’re loving! It’s so cute seeing the three of them together. I worked a lot and tried to relax a bit and read to the kids whenever I could. It was definitely a good, calming weekend and I just turned 38 weeks pregnant on Sunday. Not everything is always the way we want in this life, but I have to say that I feel that we’re where we’re suppose to be in this exact moment of our lives and recognizing this is a blessing.
Talking about blessings, let’s make of this week a week where we embrace every blessing that comes our way. Let’s keep our eyes open for them. You’ll probably will notice many more blessings just because you’re open for them.
Wishing a great week, with a big hug!
