"The Chateau" built by Jon Rufty, offers unparalleled construction quality and emanates a sense of timeless elegance. Awarded as the winner of the 2005 Parade of Homes Best of the Best category, it is truly one of a kind! Steel reinforced poured concrete walls and ceilings create a fortress of solitude. In addition to sheer resilience, the concrete construction provides a near soundproof environment, increased fire resistance, reduced energy consumption and lower than average maintenance.
Designed by Davenport Architecture + Design, Inc., the French-country style estate effortlessly melds luxury, comfort, and sophistication. The use of high quality materials is evident from the minute you drive upon the cobblestone motor court and enter the grand foyer with limestone flooring, detailed molding, and custom designed leaded glass surrounding the front door. The formal living and dining rooms give way to a spacious family room and gourmet kitchen, both with extensive views of the scenic backyard. A spacious first floor master suite offers equally impressive views and a luxurious bath with dual vanities, dressing table, glass enclosed shower, and garden tub. On the second floor you will find an additional master suite with a romantic Juliette balcony, three bedrooms each with their own private bath, and a sitting room with custom window treatments.

The finished third floor provides a flexible living space and access to walk-in attic storage.
