This nine-acre country estate in La Porte, Indiana, was designed as a replica of Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s estate in Charlottesville, Virginia. Monumental gates at the entrance open to a paved drive winding through the wooded, landscaped grounds to arrive at a circular forecourt.

The entrance to the main residence evokes Monticello’s iconic West Front: a Neoclassical portico with six monumental Doric columns supporting a triangular pediment. Just beyond is the octagonal dome, which, like Monticello, houses the entrance hall.

As meticulously appointed as the exterior, the 18th-century details continue inside with parquet floors, beamed ceilings, wood-panelled walls, and marble fireplaces. Farther along are the parlor, drawing room, dining room, and sitting room, and two-story library. The vast chef’s kitchen, movie theater, and indoor pool and spa bring residents into the 21st century.

Beside the pool is a club-style bar and billiards area. Another unique feature of the home is a three-story tower with an observatory.

4. Kilmurry House in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland 

Once home to acclaimed Irish painter Mildred Anne Butler, Kilmurry House was expertly refurbished for the 21st century while retaining the integrity of the original Georgian design. The indoor swimming pool is a contemporary addition with walls of glass that open to a sun terrace in summer and provide insulation in the winter.

Kilmurry House is one of the finest country manors in Ireland. The Georgian house, executed in timeless Palladian style, was the birthplace and lifelong home of Irish watercolorist Mildred Anne Butler and inspired many of her finest en plein air paintings.

The great house itself, set within a private demesne in excess of 90 acres in Thomastown, County Kilkenny, dates from 1690 and remained in the Butler family until 1981. The current owners extended the home to 17,861 square feet with eleven bedrooms and eight bathrooms while retaining the order and symmetry of the original Georgian design.

The reception rooms are grandly proportioned and embellished with original details, such as ornately carved fireplace mantels and crown moldings. The orangery (once Butler’s studio) was restored to its original 18th-century dimensions.

The indoor pool is a contemporary addition with walls of glass that open to a sun terrace in summer and provide insulation in the winter. The courtyard cottage and original two-bedroom gate lodge could serve as guest or staff quarters.

Kilmurry’s grounds are a nature lover’s sanctuary offering ultimately peace and privacy in an idyllic rural setting. Beyond the resplendent two-acre walled garden is a serene lake surrounded by mature woodlands—a habitat for red squirrels, hares, hedgehogs, foxes, pheasants, otters, and a pair of nesting eagles.

Other delights are the children’s adventure trail and zip line through the woods. The remaining acreage is composed of paddocks and wooded pastures for horses and livestock. The estate is within a 20-minute drive of Kilkenny City and 1.5 hours from Dublin.

This grandly proportioned family estate on 11 acres in Grouville, on the island of Jersey in the Channel Islands, was built in 1993 to an exacting standard by the current owners. The design combines the 18th-century Palladian style with the use of local pink Jersey granite.

An indoor pool complex, housed in the south wing, features hand-painted tiles depicting a pastoral Italian landscape under a glass- and pine-panelled roof. The second floor houses seven bedrooms, including two self-contained guest suites. The third floor features a recreation room with billiards table, an office, boardroom, and kitchenette.
