A French-inspired residence in the prestigious Bridle Path subdivision of Palm Beach Polo and Country Club in Wellington, Florida has sold at auction for $7.4 million after sitting on the market since 2013 for as much as $16.5 million. Designed by Laszlo Wagner of the Landfall Group and built in 2003 on a 0.83 acre property, La Charente combines all the beauty of a historic French château with an open, modern floor plan. From the grand walkway outside, you enter into the spacious estate, which welcomes you in with warm wooden ceilings and a light, airy interior. The gourmet kitchen features two islands, a stunning vaulted wood ceiling and chandeliers. In addition to the abundant spaces for eating and entertaining, this mansion has six sizeable bedrooms. The massive master suite includes beautiful French doors and a gorgeous ensuite bath with two vanities and a freestanding tub. The charming turret is a perfect workout room or potential office space with abundant light right off of the master. Outside, the classically landscaped courtyard and sculpture gardens, feature a 14th century fountain and a covered loggia with 18th century French antique fireplace. The property had most recently been on the market for $11.99 million and was auctioned by Concierge Auctions.
