Christopher G. Axelrod's Gilded Home Brings Parisian Living To Ohio (PHOTOS)

We're wondering if even the toilet gets the gilded treatment.

It's not everyday you get to experience decadent designs worthy of a royal chateau. But one lucky homebuyer can find themselves living in a Versailles-inspired abode -- in Ohio.

Designed by artist Christopher G. Axelrod, this condo located in the wealthy village of Bratenahl has four bedrooms and three baths. But it's really the ornate floor-length drapery, painted mural walls (and toilet seat!) and columns that really make this home one-of-a-kind. Not to mention its three balconies, perfect for eating a rich croissant and drinking fine champagne.

Referred to by Axelrod as the "most elegant home on earth," and can be all yours for just $645,000. (We might just have a difference of opinion on that "elegant" designation.) Click through our slideshow to see photos of this home, and head over to the property listing for more information.
