This waterfront Kings Point home on the market for $12.99 million resembles a chateau, but the interior feels more like a California contemporary.

"The outside is built like a European villa," says Sandy Rosen of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, who is listing the property. "Inside, it's a beautiful open floor plan."

Custom built in 1995, the 6,000-square-foot home is on 1.25 acres, with a gated driveway that opens onto a courtyard. The house has 13-foot ceilings throughout, its own water filtration system and a generator.

There are five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a five-car garage.

There are views of Long Island Sound throughout the home, including from the kitchen and through floor-to-ceiling windows on the entire first floor. An upstairs deck off the master bedroom overlooks the water as well. The master bedroom has his and hers bathrooms.

Outside, there is an infinity-edge pool and a 189-foot dock.
