7 Montagel Way, Birmingham, Alabama, United States, 35242

The crown jewel of the 27-acre estate is the 50,000 + square-foot mansion. It is the realization of the owners’ dream and was inspired by historic French and Italian castles of Europe.

It was architecturally designed with the grand scope and symmetry of Versailles, but with many of the internal walls removed to create breathe-taking light-filled spaces arranged for extravagant entertaining and inspired, aesthetic daily living and contemplation.

 The hand-painted dome of the grand foyer was the work of an English artist.

It took 4 years to complete construction with artisans and artists from Europe taking residence to handcraft the stucco, marble, limestone and decorative features.  The chariot race depicted in the library was hand painted by Italian artist Scagliola.
