Nicolas Sarkozy Summered in This $13.6M Lakefront Mansion

New, 13 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Wolfeboro, New Hampshire
Price: $13,600,000
The Skinny: Over on 58.6 sweet subdividable acres, on the waterfront of New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee, sits a 17,156-square-foot mansion that, believe it or not, was designed to blend in to its surroundings. According to TMS Architects, the firm that designed the house in the mid-oughts, the blend of earth-tone colors employed on the house's exterior make it all but disappear "among the pine trees in a harmonious relationship with nature's color palette." That particular claim may be dubious, but the love for the estate is unambiguous; in 2007 it won the state chapter's American Institute of Architects Peoples Choice Award. That same year, French president Nicolas Sarkozy hosted family and friends here. What's all the hubbub about? Have a look, below.
