Construction spanned nearly a decade, starting in 1993 and finishing in 2002. It also made a small appearance in the 1993 film Carlito’s Way. The mansion unfolds on 3 Acres of picturesque manicured waterfront property with a private deep-water dock. Down the long Belgian Cobblestone driveway, a rare marble fountain imported from The Rothschild Estate in France can be seen upon the approach to the all French Limestone mansion columned with some of the last remaining marble from the French quarry used to build Versailles. The interiors are grandiose and opulent with details such as Pietra Dura flooring and hand-carved limestone columns to soaring hand-painted ceilings with golf leaf and hardware custom made from the actual antique molds used in Versailles. The large great room includes boiserie removed from a century old French château and reassembled onsite and genuine authentic Parquet de Versailles floors, removed from a château in Versailles. There are seven bedrooms and eighteen bathrooms throughout the mansion, including a multi-level master suite with private elevator, multiple fireplaces, two bathrooms and a two-storey walk-in closet.
Additional features deserving recognition include the cinema quality home theatre, billiards room with walls made of imported French Cordoba leather, multiple hand-carved antique fireplaces, a state-of-the-art eat in kitchen with multiple fridges, stone pizza oven, fireplace, breakfast area and La Cornue range. Other amenities include an all onyx Turkish bath, expansive gym with mosaic marble flooring, a full sized prep kitchen, a wood panelled library and more.
