The November evening in Chandler, AZ was a gorgeous one! During cocktails guests were given a tour of part of the grounds and the lower level of the building. The story of Chateau de Vie taken from their website:
“The Chateau de Vie, originally Kyrene Mansion, was dreamed and constructed in 1984 by the visionary Phil Erickson, a framing contractor. The estate featured elegant stained glass, ornate wooden carvings, and stunning murals. Erickson and his wife ensured the property would withstand the test of time. After owning the property for some 15 years, the Ericksons decided to relocate. By 2010, the property had fallen into disrepair.
In 2011, Shelly and Nick Goodman became the proud owners of the architectural gem that is the Chateau. They have since been honored to restore the beauty of the exquisite estate to its former glory. Under Shelly's attentive supervision and eye for design, the home has blossomed into the magnificent private vacation rental it is today.”
