If you're looking for a taste of French living, you can find it hidden in the woods of White Bear Lake.

This sprawling, farmhouse-style chateau is on the market for $1.1 million, with the very private property a stone's throw from the White Bear Yacht & Golf Club.

Great if you're a golfer then, particularly considering it has its own private gate to the first hole.

But even if you're not, there's so much more to this 1927 property, which was designed by famed Philadelphia architect Frank Forster, who was known for replicating French Normandy-style chateaus.

Surrounded by courtyard walls and featuring an outdoor swimming pool, the 3,500-square-foot home is set on 1.7 acres of arboretum-style grounds.
