Though it has been, according to the listing, completely renovated for modern living by architect/designer David Easton, this three-bedroom home on eight acres–known as Folie Du Lac–got its inspiration from Versailles and “recalls the romantic 18th century,” complete with reclaimed materials imported from France including antique limestone flooring, 18th century paneling and speckled mirrors. The Waccabuc, NY estate is on the market for $1.4 million.
Remember the Sesame Street segment called “One of These Things is Not Like the Others”? (If you don’t, click here for a reminder). Well, it’s exactly what came to mind as soon as we saw photos of this gorgeous Upper East Side apartment located in Bridge Tower Place at 401 East 60th Street. The lush details in every room conjure up the French baroque style of Versailles with its lavish decoration and romantic elegance. Every room that is, except the beautiful but sorely out of place kitchen.
