Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons offers the new owner the opportunity to live in a work of art. Custom built over an 8 year period by Ed Taylor, one of the world’s great entrepreneurs, who pioneered the satellite and cable television industries. He was inspired by the French country homes he and his wife visited and recreated this home with all the elegance and grandeur of a bygone era, yet all the modern conveniences for grand scale entertaining and family living.
Built in 1990 with 20,000 sq. ft. of museum-quality construction on 4-acre wooded, lavishly landscaped gated acres, Le Manoir comes complete with priceless antiques, furnishings, rugs, and works of art.
The 2-storey Grand Entry has a double sweeping iron staircase, which was awarded the Gold Award from the National Ornamental Metal Manufactures Association. The Grand Salon, which is 46 feet long, 32 feet wide and 16 feet high, is so grand that an elegant hostess could hold a Fin d’Siecle Ball. Here, entertaining is elevated to the status of fine art. The Grand Salon has a treasury of history within its walls. One of the world’s ten most important Steinway pianos is housed in the Grand Salon and is just one of the priceless artifacts included in the sale. One of the chandeliers was from a Cannes hotel and the fireplace mantle is from Europe and is over 300 years old.
A Grand Colonnade leads to the Formal Dining Room that could accommodate State Dinners. It is elegantly appointed with a 24 karat gold and investment-grade crystal chandelier and an antique mantle from Europe.
When it comes to luxury, there is not a close second to a French Bedroom. The Manoir aux Quat Saisons first floor Master Suite, with approx. 4,000 sq. ft., fulfills this tradition with a revival of the opulent French style. The Master Suite includes a Spa Room, Garden Room, lavish his and her baths with Sherle Wagner fixtures, an antique marble fireplace mantle, Hollywood style closets, a study with mini kitchen and an atrium room, and a Mahogany Library.
For informal entertaining, a large Family Room adjoins the Kitchen, a huge Sun Room with French doors leads to a grand terrace for outdoor entertaining and overlooks the pool, spa and this wooding setting. As with the interior, care was taken to insure true French architecture was adhered to, thus creating a magnificent vailla effect. An upstairs Game room has a mini kitchen and there is an area for a grand scale Theatre room. In addition to the Master Suite, there are 3 guest suites, and an au pair wing has a living area, bedroom, and bath.
As with all grand homes, there is a story. In every detail, elaborate or simple, there can be found a reason, a history, or a tribute. Some stories have been taken from history pages of other countries, some from here, but all extraordinary.
According to the builder, this estate could not be duplicated for $25,000,000 and is offered at $12,000,000 completely furnished.
