Can you believe it’s already the final day of our Fantasy Open House week? That went fast, didn’t it? So far the only house the majority of you guys chose to buy is “Sophia’s Harbor.” The vote on “The Artisan” is almost split down the middle, but “Walk Away” is winning at the moment (just barely).
I saved the biggest and most expensive home on the tour for last.
Chateau Torelle was designed and built by Spencer Hill Estate Homes to resemble an authentic French Castle. It has 9,150 square feet and is on the market for $2.45 million. It took us nearly 45 minutes just to walk through it.
It was decorated as if it was the site of a wedding for the day, so you may spot a wedding gown, a wedding cake, and round tables set for the reception. According to the builder, it is “intended for entertaining large crowds” and can accommodate 300 in its massive rooms. (I personally think this is a conservative estimate. The place was huge!)
Well, this is one place you have to see for yourself, so enough yakking and on with the tour!
(Note: I found some additional photos, such as the one of the home taken at night at the top of the post, on the MLS listing and at Pulse Journal.)
Did you spot the wedding cake?
This felt more like a boutique hotel than a home to me, but it was still a lot of fun to look at. What did you think? Did you like it or not?
I hope you enjoyed Homearama 2008 as much as I did! It’s so much fun to hear all of your comments about each of the houses, as if we were all walking through them together and dishing about the decor. There were three other houses in the show, so I’ll be posting some of the photos I took in them in the weeks to come.
