No need to travel to France to enjoy the serene country feeling. This delightful "French Country chateau" located in "the Grove" section in Valmonte brings France to Palos Verdes Estates. The approximately 2436 sq. ft. home gives a distinctly old European look with all the modern high tech conveniences. The gourmet kitchen has tiles like those installed in the French painter, Claude Monet's kitchen. It includes top of line Jenne-Aire, Sub-Zero, Bosch, and Kitchen Aid appliances. The French limestone floors and maple cabinets add an elegant touch. The spacious master suite is the perfect get away and even has a wet bar and Viking refrigerator. The steam shower and hydro-spa tub add to the relaxing adult retreat. Constructed in 2002, this very special home features a great room for entertaining, three bedrooms and even a finished basement that would make an excellent wine cellar, exercise room or storage area.
