Bryn Mawr’s Jaw-Dropping Versailles
This estate is based on La Lanterne, the presidential retreat at Versailles, which is still in use today. The chateau has been on and off the market since 2011, but the price has remained the same: $7.9 million.
Extravagant features include a formal knot garden, orchard stone floors, a wood bar room, a media and gaming room, a tennis pavilion, and a stream-fed pond. Personally, I like the room with the groin vault. I’d rather relax and read a book in there than play tennis.
