At first sight, this resplendent home looks as though it belongs in the French countryside, which is the look the owner, Raphael Yakoby (the entrepreneur behind Hpnotiq and Nuvo liqueurs) was going for when he commissioned the house six years ago. Inspired by the Château de Versailles and the Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, the home has an unmistakable Louis XIV air from the outside. Twenty-two-ft-high iron gates greet you at the entrance, with a pear tree–lined drive leading into the eight-acre estate. Covering approximately 22,000 sq ft, the eight-bedroom chateau features a movie theater, wine cellar, billiards room, swimming pool and fitness center. Sold fully furnished, the home is decorated in a warm yet elegant style, with countless Baccarat chandeliers and six 19th-century fireplaces among the many highlights.
