Beautifully renovated 4 storey, 19th century French Chateau with
3 separate apartments and guest house, nestling in over 13 acres of glorious landscaped gardens with expansive pool, while enjoying far reaching countryside views from its peaceful location near all amenities in Bordeaux.
This unique property has been meticulously renovated to an extremely high standard by an architect specialised in historic building restoration. Built as a hunting lodge, this family home is a magnificent setting to entertain guests. The living spaces offer generous volumes, light throughout and an ease of flow rarely seen in more traditional style châteaux.
Built of light coloured limestone with an overhauled slate-covered roof, it is positioned at the centre of 5 hectares of grounds accessed by a star shaped network of gravelled paths. A rare 19th century wind turbine known as an 'Eolienne Bollee' with foot access was used to draw water to feed cattle grazing on pastures around the chateau, and today it provides a remarkable feature nestled into the woodland.
A 29m2 heated outdoor swimming 'lap' pool with counter-current, pool house and shower sit next to the chateau. A 'son et lumiere' installation lights it up in the evening whilst music projects from hidden loudspeakers across the grounds. Every room in the chateau offers sweeping views onto the surrounding gardens.
The 65m2 living room has South, North and East facing floor-to-ceiling windows inviting nature into the property. This resolutely modern inside/outside living concept sits beautifully with the restored classical features such as open fireplaces, original doors and rendered stone walls.
Alongside the living room is a vast entrance hall opening to both the South and the North sides of the chateau and a billiard room. This makes for
130m2 of reception space. A fully fitted modern kitchen with prep-pantry connecting to an adjacent formal dining room, and a wheelchair-accessible ground floor en-suite bedroom make up the ground floor.
A wheelchair-accessible glass elevator connects the four floors of the chateau. The elevator ride has internal views onto rooms on each floor as you climb from the basement to attic levels.
Unusual for a Bordeaux chateau, the basement covers the entire chateau with a wine cellar, gym, workshop and a technical control room with direct access to garden and pool areas.
The first floor is comprised of a master bedroom with balcony and walk in wardrobe, generous master bathroom, 2 additional bedroom suites as well as an office space and meeting room.
The first floor demonstrates the modularity of the sizeable floor space across the chateau.
The second floor or attic has an open-space, loft feel with separate bedroom and bathroom.
The main property offers some 830m2 of usable space.
A private motorised gate offers access to the grounds where there are both the renovated 18th century post house converted into three separate apartments (430m2 usable space) and the converted chicken coop, now an independent guest house (50m2 usable space) secluded behind the bamboo grove.
All technical systems (electrical, plumbing, heating) were completely renewed in all buildings, as well as all floors, wall and ceiling surfaces with stucco cornices. All roofs were thermally insulated and retiled. The chateau's underfloor heating is self-reliant from geothermal energy (heat source groundwater), complemented by solar panels for electricity.
