~ For my late Grandfather ~



Hey guys! Here's a new project I've been working on for the last 5 months or so, Le Château des Cieux! I tried to challenge myself with this build by trying to make a house that would have existed in the 1700's, so no electronics or TV's.



Based off of the Chateau de Vaux le Vicomte, this french mansion contains 9 bedrooms (22 servant bedrooms), 11 bathrooms (6 servant bathrooms), as well as a large ballroom and an extensive basement. The house showcases the exquisite luxury of living above the clouds, as well as the peaceful tranquility of being away from civilization. The whole estate includes large and small whale-pulled ships, a docking port, an in-ground courtyard, and of course, the chateau!

If you're up for a challenge...

Explore the mansion and try to find the :
- Pipe Organ
- Art Room
- Sunken Ship Fish Tank
- Illuminati Triangle (really hard!)

I hadn't known about the dumbwaiter leading to the servants kitchen lol, but I think what caught my eye was the furniture. But mostly the beds, shouldn't they have that top curtain part? I've seen that in a lot of old wealthy homes.

Amazing build, but being in the 18th century, dont you think the way the interior is set up still looks a bit modern?

Thanks, but I feel that the interior isn't entirely modern, although it has modern influences. For example, if you downloaded the world, the first floor kitchen has a dumbwaiter that leads down to a larger servant kitchen, as many mansions of the time had.  Additionally, I provided adequate quarters for the servants in the basement, if you want to go and explore for yourself. :)

I know Mr. Knuckles in real life, and he is VERY proud of this creation of his. Which he should be, if he dedicated 5 months to creating this sexy build then he has the right to be proud, dammit! 

Very beautiful, outstanding build buddy ol' pal of mine!

In the world download, the maps glitched, so go to 10000 180 10000, take a map of each map, then they will load correctly. Hint : the triangle is on a blackboard on the first floor in the left side of the house. Good luck!

wtf why is there a bloody crop circle hovering over this peculiar hovering island with a chateau on it and a whale ship next to it?

EDIT: it's only Minecraft, i suppose.

Haha yea, but the backstory for the circle, (its a summoning circle / alchemy circle) is to contain the angel's hand beneath the island, which keeps the island floating. If you're still confused, feel free to read the Lore. :P

The amount of detail and depth that you put into this build is absolutely incredible, This is definably some of the best interior work I have ever seen in minecraft. A very well deserved Diamond and Favourite my friend :)

P.S. I really like what you did with the Mirror of Erised from Harry Potter xD and WHERE THE HELL IS THAT ILLUMINATI TRIANGLE!

Thank you, this build has more than just that Harry Potter the reference as well; the servant dining hall, servant quarters, and even the dungeons were all inspired by various Harry Potter rooms! 
P.S. I will send you a private message giving hints about where it is, so no one else will know ;)
