Bulletin, 18 May 2006A mere mention of ?France? gives the impression of romance, luxury, aristocracy and an easy sophistication
that comes from a rich history and culture?the Eiffel Tower, sidewalk cafes, red wine, and beautiful people. ?Chateau? is
another word that just slides out of the mouth with a grace that gives visions of an abode fit for queens and princesses.
It is more than a mansion, it is a palace, and South Forbes is bringing the atmosphere of France to the country with the launch
of South Forbes Golf City?s newest project, Chⴥaux de Paris.
Chambord, the first of the model chateaus, takes
its inspiration from the loveliest and grandest of the Renaissance buildings in France?s Valley of Loire?Chateau de Chambord.
This sumptuous palace was inspired by the great Leonardo da Vinci, who was said to have added his own embellishments
to the chateau?s fa硤e and interiors.
South Forbes? Chambord brings this treasure to the 21st century. The classical
rendition of the South Forbes French chateau moves away from the heavy-handed baroque decorations. The result is a modern
interpretation of the classics that still has strong ties to tradition and style. It brings sophistication and gracious living
of the French Renaissance refined to today?s more subtle and restrained tastes.
Gone are the brocades that make the
interiors seem dark and heavy but the color scheme kept the gold and burgundy of the traditional French chateau. The furniture
selection has the traditional silhouettes of the Louis XIV chairs with the updated and more streamlined design with contemporary
Art pieces are framed in silver gilded frames and the topiary brings the spirit of French gardens inside
the house. With just the right amount of richness, the house maintains the traditional feel while still keeping the home in
the 21st century.
The Chambord offers a sumptuous living space for a family to make it their own. On the first floor, the living room
opens up to the dining room and leads to a spacious formal kitchen, perfect for entertaining guests or just for a normal day.
There is also a den beside the living room that may be converted into an entertainment center or even an office. Upstairs
are the three bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, a library and study room, as well as a lounge.
coming from the stairs, leads to the balcony at the front of the house.
South Forbes also offers Fontainebleau and
Chantilly model chateaus with each of their own interiors that will make you fall in love with everything that is French and
would want to make it your own.
As if that?s not enough, investors and homebuyers get a free golf membership to the
18-hole South Forbes Golf Club for every lot purchase at Chⴥaux de Paris. This also gives them the chance to play in
42 top golf courses in Europe, Asia, and North America through the exclusive golf club of IMG SportsClub.
