This home may have been built in the 1990s, but its style harkens back to another age entirely. Known as Chateau Mamere, this French Provincial-style mansion brings the dream of living on a grand country estate within reach.

It’s all about the opulent details, like the double mahogany entry doors with 24-karat gold leaf accents, sweeping double staircase and handcrafted black walnut molding. One-of-a-kind features include an oversized Jacuzzi, a library lined with custom-built bookcases and even a chapel with stained-glass windows.

Admire the view of the Wild Quail Country Club’s 14th fairway from the conservatory’s floor-to-ceiling windows over cocktails. Relax with family in the sunken great room in front of one of the home’s three marble fireplaces. Take entertaining to a new level in a finished basement that features a wet bar, dance floor and surround-sound speaker system.

Outside, the landscaped gardens, gazebo and brick patio complete with a built-in barbecue offer the promise of warm-weather gatherings, with all the amenities of the country club just a short distance away.
