This Ultra-Lavish Chateau Brings the French Countryside to Hilton Head Island
It’s not easy to create an old-world vibe in a new home, but the masterminds behind this sprawling French-style chateau in Bluffton, South Carolina, managed to knock it out of the park.
Even though the 20,700-square-foot home was built in 2004, nearly every inch of this lowcountry estate feels like it was constructed centuries ago by French artisans. Once inside, you’ll find it easy to forget that you’re just two miles from beautiful Hilton Head Island in the heart of the prestigious Colleton River Club—not that you’d want to.
Boasting six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and 10 scenic waterfront acres, this one-of-a-kind residence is full of unique design elements, like the 1830s paneling in the Music Room originally from the Hungarian Embassy in Paris, and the Tea Room’s hand-carved mahogany mantel crafted over the span of two years. And don’t even get us started on those views!
The property and its furniture (!) are headed to auction later this month. Bidding, which starts at $9,000,000, will begin digitally on December 14th via Concierge Auctions. Check out its full listing for more details, and keep scrolling for a look inside.
