#1: Old-World, Romantic French-Style Estate


This stunning estate of approximately 5,854 square feet sits on a manicured acre lot. Representing the best of both worlds, the home features striking newer construction paired with an incredible old-world charm.

The interior includes formal living and dining rooms, four fireplaces, a wine cellar, and a sumptuous kitchen. A family room opens to a columned loggia, while a gorgeous master suite awaits upstairs. The grounds include water-conserving landscaping, while a breezeway connects to a three-car garage and a spacious studio.
