Day after day, Cape Cod home buyers search in vain for their dream French chateau, only to be mocked with an endless supply of capes, colonials, and contemporaries. Well, thanks to this brand new Cotuit listing, the wait is over. Bonjour, Chateau Chataigne!
The France meets Barnstable sprawler was built in 1968 and has been extensively updated. While we read the brokerbabble in our best attempt as the mom from "Better Off Dead," feel free to improvise:
Chateau Chataigne is a 5BR/5BA exquisite French Chateau that is privately tucked away with beautiful landscaped grounds, a pergola terrace, and an expansive brick patio located in the heart of Cotuit village. The moment you enter the ornate foyer surrounded by hand painted murals, you capture the feel of the French provence. This spacious 5,000 s.f. home boasts hand crafted millwork, high ceilings, carved doors and built -in cabinets throughout the entire house with every modern amenity imaginable. The house offers optional first or second floor master suites, 3 rooftop decks, a second floor en-suite and a finished lower level en-suite. The recent addition includes a gourmet kitchen/dining room which is the pulse of the house featuring Viking appliances, bay windows, and a spacious kitchen island. Steps to beach! Bon Appetite!!! That said, the .63 acre spread last traded in 2002 for $2,500,000 and returned in 2013 with that very same price tag. After one $500K chop and two years of bouncing off and on the market, 804 Main Street has returned and is once again hoping for $1,995,000. Oui or no?
