Aquitaine, Gironde - 33

4.360.000 € ID: 160656

This unique château has been meticulously renovated to an extremely high standard by an architect specialized in historic building restoration.

Built in the mid-19th century 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.

Situated just beyond Bordeaux’s suburbs yet surrounded by woodland, both the center of Bordeaux and Bordeaux’s international airport are 20 minutes’ drive. Arcachon, its bay and golden Atlantic beaches are 35 minutes away.
World renowned vineyards are within just a few kilometers.

The lifestyle opportunities offered by the location of this stunning château married with very easy access to international transport make it an ideal geographic location for a home or for a business.

Built of light-colored limestone with an overhauled slate-covered roof, the château is positioned at the center of 5 hectares of grounds accessed by a star shaped network of graveled paths.
A rare 19th century wind turbine known as an ‘Eolienne Bollée’ with foot access was used to draw water to feed cattle grazing on pastures around the château.
A 29 m² heated outdoor swimming ‘lap’ pool with counter-current, pool house and shower sit next to the château.
A ‘son et lumière’ installation lights up the château in the evening whilst music projects from hidden loudspeakers across the château grounds.

The 65 m² living room has South, North and East facing floor-to-ceiling windows inviting nature into the château. This resolutely modern inside/outside living concept sits beautifully with the restored classical features such as open fireplaces, original doors and rendered stone walls.
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 château.
Unusual for a Bordeaux château, the basement covers the entire château 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 dressing room, generous master bathroom, 2 additional bedroom suites as well as an office space and meeting room.
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 motorized gate offers access to the grounds where you will find 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)

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.
