Hello Randy, and thanks for an unusual and challenging question.

When I lived in Manhattan, one of my favorite browsing spots was a
warehouse on the lower East Side that operated what was, at the time,
a new type of business -- architectural salvage.  Since then, many
such operations have sprung up.  I think these would be a great source
for unusual doors -- or any other type of building "accents" you might
be looking for for your home.

Just to give you an example of one such business, take a look at the
"doors" page of a company called Architectural Heritage:

I particularly like the "Walnut French Door with Stone Surround -- 
copy from French original" which can be yours for only $10,900...!

There are many other styles and price ranges to choose from at this

And of course, there are many other sites to choose from as well.  A
few others worth a look are:
"We have an extensive inventory of French and American entry doors.
Our selection includes doors made of solid wood, iron, and bronze.
Bring your building plans or a photograph of your home and we will
help you select the appropriate entry way. Entry doors are one of the
most important architectural features of your home and should make a
strong impact. We will help you select something special."

and many others to choose from all across the US (and a few in Europe,
as well)can be found in this comprehensive list:

I hope this points you in the right direction.  But if I'm off the
mark -- if these type of salvage shops are NOT what you're looking for
-- just let me know by posting a Request for Clarification.  I'll be
happy to assist you further in finding just the right touch for your
new home.
