A porte-cochere gives passageway to a balanced facade with two projecting wings that connect to the entrance tower. The marbled entrance hall provides one of many entries to an open loggia. Marble flooring, utilized throughout the home, reflects the sunlight to create a soothing naturally lit interior. To the right of the entry is the amazing great room with immense glass wall full of mountain vistas, custom limestone fireplace and unique spoked ceiling detail. The great room opens to the kitchen which utilizes the self-supporting ceramic tile vault and arch system patented by Spanish architect Rafael Guastavino in 1892. To the left of the entrance hall is the two-storey library with walnut flooring and a surrounding upper floor balcony.
The staircases on opposing ends of the mansion are dramatic features with limestone steps, winding balustrade, curly wrought-iron insets and multifaceted glass. The upper floor living hall is an extension of the grand staircases as a formal hall and gallery. On the opposite ends of the house the architect has placed the twin two-car garages. The primary master suite with decks, living room, limestone fireplace and luxury bath with coffee bar, refrigerator, automated blinds and safe room is located on the main level. Upstairs is the guest apartment with full kitchen and windows to an ancient rock outcropping. Four additional bedroom suites are located on upper and walk-out levels. Intentionally unfinished, the bottom level allows customization. The famed Biltmore Estate isn’t for sale but if you’re looking for something a little smaller with a similar exterior then you can call Chateau V home. It’s on the market for $12.5 million with Whitney Cain of Sotheby’s International Realty.
