If the name Fleur de Lys was any indicator, the theme here is the French country house. Think tons of stone, thick Venetian plaster walls and aged wood. Inside, the pad was designed to accommodate massive gatherings with enough seating for up to 20 guests. You will find a living room, family room, formal dining room and media center. In addition, the chef’s kitchen is adorned with Italian Breccia Medicea stone countertops and a Le Cornue stove and rotisserie. Very Parisian.
Elsewhere, a super cozy den sports its own fireplace, as does the master suite. The bedroom also has not one but two en-suite bathrooms, designed with tiled floors and stone countertops, two walk-in closets, and a personal gym. Considering the location, equal amounts of detail have been added to the outdoor space as well. The swimming pool and terrace are surrounded by verdant ancient oak trees and abundant lush vegetation. Honestly, it makes the whole thing even more dreamy.
