Lake Norman Realty Luxury Debuts Chateau Lyon for $8,000,000

Chateau Lyon, a masterpiece of modern luxury and centuries-old architectural details stands on the shores ofLakeNorman, enchanting all who step inside.  “Built of wonder, grounded in history, and abounding in luxury, Chateau Lyon captures the imagination of all who enter its storied halls,” said Abigail Jennings, President of Lake Norman Realty, Inc., the exclusive marketing firm for the estate.

On the market for just over a month, this noteworthy residence has already attracted the attention of international prospects, as well as local celebrities.  The home, costing over $22 million to build, was inspired by the French limestone, soaring ceilings, and antique ceramic roof tiles that furniture entrepreneurs Larry and Jane Hendricks admired on their extensive European travels.  The Hendricks completed the home in 2009, artfully integrating a brilliant collection of French and Italian historic artifacts and masterpiece artisan reproductions alongside technological luxuries discreetly incorporated throughout the estate.

Featuring details and luxuries that fill a seventeen-page property brochure, a few of the home’s most famous elements are its stone flooring reclaimed from 600-year-old farmhouses bordering the Mediterranean Sea, the bronze bay windows replicating those adorning the famous Hotel Le Meurice in Paris, and the dining room’s boiserie with original paintings, gold-leaf paneling, and antique fixtures taken directly from an early 1900’s reproduction of Marie Antoinette’s summer home.

Chateau Lyon offers not only the grandeur of scale and proportion, but also lavish attention to detail unequaled in our region.  This stunning gem of residential architecture truly embodies the spirit of the grand estate, bringing a sense of exotic wonder to its waterfront setting on the tip of picturesque and exclusive AlexanderIsland, a gated LakeNormanneighborhood in Mooresville, NC.  Chateau Lyon is situated on a generous 1.63 acres with over 500 feet of LakeNormanshorelineOnly 30 minutes from downtown Charlotte and the Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Mooresville has been named one of Money magazine’s Top 100 “Best Places to Live,” and often enjoys the national spotlight for its exceptional quality of life.

  • Thanks Li! When you step into this home you can truly feel its value.  If you ever have a client wanting "old world" materials and beauty, this is it!

  • Buyers would have instant equity...not easy to have these days!

  • This is a symbol of greed and poor business decisions. People who no longer have jobs in the furniture factories have people like Larry Hendricks to thank.
