Grand and distinguished, and yet still warm and inviting. That's how you feel when driving up to this scenic French Chateau Estate, situated on nearly two acres right on the Vermilion River. Located in the coveted Vermilion Plantation Subdivision, you may forget you're right within the convenience of the city because of the quiet, secluded, river front, 1.95 acre lot with it's own private park-like setting situated around a beautiful pond. This includes a charming boardwalk, with plenty of shade provided by mature trees including oak, cypress, palm, and crepe myrtle. The gated pool overlooks the Vermillion, a large covered back patio and a cute gazebo (that could be perfect for gatherings or events), all share an amazing river view...and so much more! This house creates warm, cozy feelings by incorporating outdoor elements, like Old World style brick flooring, long leaf wide plank pine floors, wood molding, gorgeous wooden beams and several wood burning fireplaces. Every detail of this home shows character and craftmanship, from the elegant staircase to the unique and aesthetic slate roof. Upon entering the foyer, there is a grand, formal dining room full of windows, wood plantation interior shutters and plenty of natural light. From there you transfer into the great room complete with full wet bar and incredible 22' cathedral ceilings and a double sided fireplace for warmth and ambiance in the living and kitchen seating area. Windows with ceiling to floor view of the river, a second story balcony overlooks the whole area. The kitchen is beautiful and includes a large island, double wall oven, sub zero refrigerator, beautiful hardwood cabinets with leaded glass fronts, bar seating, spacious walk in pantry, extra sitting area or breakfast nook, more built-ins and its own fireplace for enjoying yet another spectacular view of the river! The main suite is downstairs and the en suite is stylish and luxurious, has it's own entrance to the patio area and of course, includes a fireplace! Also double sided (suite and bath) so you can enjoy a warm fire from the main suite itself or from your relaxing private bath. The spa like bath has dual sinks, jacuzzi tub, large walk in shower, commode and bidet and has an extra large walk in closet. With a total of 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, plenty of storage and a 3-car garage with its own utility room, you just keep finding more space! This is not your run-of-the mill modern white and gray color palette. This is a classic, charming traditional French style home that is sure to give you that WOW factor.
