$10 Million Manse Hits the Market in Memorial

NESTLED INTO A quiet, wooded section of Piney Point Village is a French Normandy-style estate that just hit the market for $9.99 million, listed by Kellie Geitner of Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty.


Built by Robert Dame with Thompson Custom Homes and designed by Julie Dodson, the 12,000-square-foot, five-bedroom home on Wilding Lane features Chateau Blue cobblestone and a slate roof on the outside, and impeccably stylish finishes from the moment one steps inside.

An arched entrance, carved out of limestone, features a mahogany front door that opens to reveal a foyer leading to the wood-beamed formal living room and the billiard room with marble bar and Murano chandeliers. The dining room features custom-made, metallic Chinoiserie Grace wallpaper and a showstopping chandelier made out of nickel-plated chains, and an adjacent wine room.

The main living area is an open-concept family room and kitchen, the latter juxtaposting exposed-brick with a stunning and spacious Calacatta marble island. There's even a pizza oven that was originally intended for Johnny Carrabba's personal kitchen, plus a butler's pantry and catering kitchen.

The bedrooms, playroom and office spaces all include unique and custom finishes.

And the backyard is a true oasis, with a stone-covered loggia, outdoor kitchen and resort-worthy pool and spa.
