 A newly constructed, 12,000- square-foot French Chateau-style home in Sands Point, listed for $12.5 million, features intricate custom-made plaster moldings, imported marble and glass tiles throughout.

The foyer has a 30-foot-high ceiling and marble floor tiles, each measuring 36 by 36 inches. It opens up to a grand staircase with an imported, wrought-iron banister topped with mahogany railing.

A powder room has imported onyx walls and floors plus “his” and “hers” toilets. And the centerpiece of the home’s ballroom, which measures 1,500 square feet, is the fireplace’s 30-foot-high, hand-carved travertine marble mantel.

All five bedrooms have access to an exterior balcony, and the en suite baths have a different glass mosaic tile theme in the showers. There are a total of 7.5 baths.

The master suite’s fireplace is hand-carved Italian travertine marble. Its bathroom comes with two steam showers, gold-plated faucets, marble floor and a marble Jacuzzi tub with a domed ceiling above.

The two-acre property has a 3,000-square-foot patio surrounding the saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, both with Italian mosaic tiles. Two fountains will shoot up from the pool and be showcased with LED lights. Other features include a library, home theater, an additional five fireplaces, and an attached four-car garage with room for lifts. It’s listed with Andrea Jablow of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates. -- Virginia Dunleavy
