This free-build project was inspired by Jay Gatsby's mansion from the 2013 film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. I started the first iteration of this project and finished it in May of 2018. Dissatisfied with its appearance, I began renovating it to have a fresher, cleaner look in June of 2019.

The Broglie Estate is home to the new Lafayette Mansion, which has a ballroom, private quarters, a large dining room, and study. The Proust Library, situated on the eastern side of the estate, is dedicated to the collection of books, writings, and artworks. The Voltaire Meeting House has many guest rooms for visitors to stay in and the building functions as a meeting place.

This estate also features a beautiful, explorable landscape. There are large gardens of tulips, lilacs, and shrubs. There are three walkthrough fountains, located on the western side of the estate, and three traditional fountains, located on the front lawn. Along with the previously mentioned features, there are trees that are planted in an organized, symmetrical way. Lastly, in the Ring Garden, there is a single Japanese cherry.

The estate's namesake,
Broglie, was a physicist who is known for his contributions to quantum theory.
The mansion's namesake, Lafayette, was a military officer (more famously known as Marquis de Lafayette).
The meeting house's namesake, Voltaire, was a French Enlightenment writer and philosopher.
The library's namesake, Proust, was a French novelist, critic, and essayist.
