Impressive 19th century chateau in Central Park now on the market

Contrary to the common belief, chateaux are not found only in France and are actually not that rare. They can also be seen in places such as Manhattan. This impressive chateau is located in Central Park and it has become an official landmark in Manhattan. Of course, it’s easy to see why.

The building is a 19th century chapel built and designed with a neo-French Renaissance style. The chateau is currently listed at $12.5 million, a small price compared to what it has to offer.

This impressive prewar condominium features very beautiful and impressive vaulted ceilings and peaked chapel windows, stone columns, an arched gallery and antique French stone floors. All of these are unique architectural elements that are rare and hard to find anywhere in the world, not to mention in Manhattan.

The interior of the chateau is also very impressive, not with its size but also with the antique décor. Everything inside this chapel is unique and irreplaceable. The walls still have the original paint on them, with motifs and decorations specific to that period. The vaulted ceilings are absolutely breathtaking. All the rooms have parquet floors and traditional rugs. A spiral staircase made of wood grants access to the upper floors. The furniture is also antique, mostly made of wood. The kitchen, however, has a more modern look, mostly because of the appliances.
