Shield thy eyes from the yellow! This $13.2 million Water Mill estate appears to be a not-so-subtle ode to Versailles on the inside and out. While the landscaping is acceptable if you like the French palace look, the living/statue room and kitchen leave much to be desired. Even the dog looks perplexed by that mural. As for the identity of that gold-dipped mantlepiece, leave your best guesses in the comments.
N.B. Palais de Water Mill has been on the market since 2007, and was upped (!) from $8.5 million to $13.2 million in May 2009.
