Rare find in the Golden Triangle. This property with its grand rooms, high ceilings, classic finishes, and private courtyard, harkens back to a privileged era.
The Hôtel de Saige is of particular architectural interest. The central part, where you will find the property, was conceived of the Roman style. Victor Louis, its architect, was inspired by the Palazzo Mancini in Rome. Following its owner’s death in 1793 by guillotine, the residence was converted into a prefectural establishment as it remained for nearly 2 centuries until the mayor of Bordeaux at the time moved his offices to their current location. The property lay empty for nearly 2 decades until 1998 when a 4-year renovation project began under the close supervision of the Monuments Historiques and Bâtiments de France.
This Hôtel’s rebirth in the 21st century brings modern convenience to the classic 18th century private house.

It now consists of 35 apartments, 25 studios, 8 office suites, and underground parking area, garages, cellars, and storage spaces all grouped around the main courtyard. It includes 5 entrance halls with grand staircases and elevators.

This property is priced to sell to the buyer with a desire to obtain a piece of Bordeaux’s architectural history and put their stamp on a space rarely seen in today’s market.
