Once upon a time, a ranch-style home in Lloyd Harbor was transformed into a two-story French Provincial manor complete with slate roof, copper gutters and a turret. The total rebuild was completed in 2007, and the home is now on the market for $3.49 million.

"I don't think it could ever be duplicated for the asking price," says Daniel Gale's Joan Gannon.

The 7,700-square-foot residence has mahogany floors, moldings and built-ins throughout the main rooms of the house. Arched architectural pillars define the spaces in the open-plan foyer.

A second-level balcony at the top of the main staircase contains a library with built-in shelves and a sitting nook for reading.

The family room, next to the eat-in-kitchen, comes with French doors that access a semicovered rear porch. It looks out over the two-acre property and heated in-ground gunite pool. There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Other features include a formal dining room, three fireplaces and an attached, two-car garage.
