This 7,400 square foot residence is a faithful interpretation of a French country house. Clad in stucco with cast stone classical ornamentation, it is crowned with a slate roof, lead-coated bull’s eye dormers and finials, and four matched chimneys. The back of the house steps down in scale, features a splendid covered porch, and faces a beautiful garden with formal and informal elements. The interior is a sequence of carefully composed rooms, embellished with special plaster moldings, wood paneling, timbered ceilings, wrought iron, antique mantels, and aged mirrors.
