1338851305MOORESVILLE, NC: Chateau Lyon, the one-of-a-kind old world-inspired estate on Lake Norman, has been in the news for its beauty and exquisite details since it came on the market last September. Now, it has been sold by Lake Norman Realty Luxury Associates Debbie Monroe and Amber Garchar for $4,385,000 - making it the highest priced sale in the Charlotte area since 2009.

The foreclosed estate is an architectural masterpiece, which cost over $22 million to build. The drastically reduced price created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This noteworthy residence attracted the attention of international prospects as well as local celebrities during its time on the market; however the final buyer for the property was a local Charlotte business owner.

Chateau Lyon was inspired by the French limestone, soaring ceilings, and antique ceramic roof tiles the former owners admired on their extensive European travels. The estate was completed in 2009, artfully integrating a brilliant collection of French and Italian historic artifacts and masterpiece artisan reproductions alongside technological luxuries discreetly incorporated throughout the property. Featuring many details and luxuries, 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.
