Spectacular to look at, the 7-bedroom home has hand-pegged parquet de Versailles flooring throughout.Museum-quality 18th-century French Louis XV carved stone fireplaces anchor the main level where a two-story great room looks out over a wrap-around terrace and 17 adjacent acres of preserved meadows owned by the Nature Conservancy.
Builder Jeffrey Collé added quarter-sawn white oak paneling, with hand-carved heated marble tubs in the master bathroom.
In the kitchen, a La Cornue stove and dual Viking refrigerators are a nod to the home's immeasurable potential for year-round entertaining.
