18th-century French chateau demolished 'by mistake' when builders confuse it with separate building

December 06, 2012

"The damage has been done," Mr. Stroskin said. He has promised to "rebuild an identical Bellevue" including the château's grand hall, which could hold up to 200 people. A Polish architect has already drawn up plans and local masons have received a €1.5-million ($1.9-million) contract to rebuild it over two years.
