Affectionately known by the locals as 'The Chateau'.
An opportunity to relax, unwind and do so in style.
Fly in and out of Bordeaux. Only an hour's drive from both the airport and the beach, this is a stately country retreat, perfectly positioned on a hectare of open and spacious parkland. Built in the 19th Century by a prominent timber merchant, discover a timeless, yet unique elegance, a true mix of original quality and modern furnishings.
Upon entry into the large lobby with feature tiles and ornate panelling, you'll instantly feel at home!
A formal lounge room to the left and a formal dining room to the right. Both rooms feature marble fireplaces, beautiful parquet floors and designer decor.
A summer lounge with views over the park and passage to a family-sized sunroom with feature glass and access to the gardens.
Originally centrally located, the kitchen has since been relocated, however, the grand fireplace and serious wood oven still remain and create a marvellous feature in the now less formal dining room.
The new stone top kitchen and its abundance of cupboard space now support family interactions in a very bright space. Accessible from the family sunroom and less formal dining area, it also has access to the central lobby and rear external entry.
Also on the ground floor is the parental suite. A fabulous room giving a feeling of warmth upon entry. Another feature fireplace and its own dressing room and bathroom. The charm of this area is in the quality fittings used and retained from a previous renovation. It is simply beautiful.
On the first floor, a total of 5 bedrooms can be found. 6 bedrooms in total. A new bathroom with shower and toilet. Renovated with taste and still in keeping with the style of the home, but with a modern twist. All 5 bedrooms are very bright, have parquet floors and are of a very generous size. A feature on this level is the central lobby and balcony.
An area for access to the attic can be envisaged if one was to convert the same into 3 or 4 more bedrooms!
Externally of course there is a heated swimming pool. A recent addition and the first improvement the current family made when taking the custodianship of this beautiful home.
If you have a commercial flair, ideas for a home-based project, or even perhaps an interest in hospitality, there is a barn in great condition and screaming with potential! Approximately 400sqm of usable floor space! Already containing a 2 bedroom caretakers apartment that requires a full renovation, but presents very well and offers a kitchen/living room and offset cellar. Also access to an enormous room on the 1st floor.
On the ground level: boiler room, fuel room, stock room, 4 car garage and horse stable.
Additionally, an old tobacco drying building is now a woodshed, workshop etc.
A ground source of water for irrigating the park, a stone-walled perimeter and a formal entry gate complete this lovely home.
