On the edge of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, on the hills of the Garonne Valley, in a medieval town in the south of the French department of Gironde. This property is in a residential district not far from some little local shops. A TGV train station, with 11 daily regional train links, is 50 minutes away via the motorway. Mérignac airport is an hour away by car. The undulating urban relief here provides wide views of the Garonne valley. The hinterland in this region forms a mixed farming landscape dotted with woods.
The mansion house
This east-west facing construction is the main building. Displaying a classical architecture, its facades feature wide openings, some of which are arched. The thick walls house a vast, vaulted, basement cellar.
The independent dwelling within the mansion house
This independent dwelling forms an integral part of the house, into which it could easily be reincorporated. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with a toilet under the stairway. It leads, left, to a kitchen and, right, to a superb, south-facing, 23 m² living room still with all of its original panelling. Upstairs, a central landing provides access to a shower room with a toilet and two bedrooms set out on either side; the bigger of the two bedrooms is above the living room.
The little house
Once directly connected to the mansion house and closing the entrance courtyard, this house comprises an upstairs. It is currently connected via a doorway to the library. It could, therefore, easily become self-contained again. It is accessed from the street via an entrance corridor at the end of which is a toilet as well as a small blind room and a boiler room. A second corridor, on the left-hand side, has been converted into a study. It precedes a bedroom. At the end of the main corridor, a stairway goes upstairs to a very large bedroom, renovated in a modern style, as well as to another bedroom and a south-facing kitchen. The landing houses a shower room and toilet.
This building houses a 2-car garage, spanning approx. 55 m², above which is a vast workshop. At the back, on the south side, is a summer lounge, topped with a mezzanine laid out as an open-plan guest bedroom. This unit opens on to a covered area with Gironde stone tiles, stone vaults and an exposed roofing framework.
The landscaped courtyard
The courtyard is laid out around a swimming pool, with a Gironde stone deck forming an outdoor lounge. It is bordered by buildings on three sides. Various conversion works have made it possible to extend said courtyard whilst keeping the views. Consequently, the covered area with its Gironde stone floor and its exposed roofing framework faces a unit comprising a half-timbered garage, constructed over a crawlspace and a small outbuilding used as a pool-house. A lintel features a stone engraved with text written in Latin. The light and shadow reflected off the facades of the main house enhance this sunny, comfortably laid out, outdoor area.
The courtyards, terraces, views and stairways acting as links between the three houses create a coherent and maze-like property, the layout of which could easily be changed to suit a multitude of purposes. Old features such as the monumental stairway and the panelling enhance the cosy and relaxing atmosphere in a house, constructed from history-filled stone exuding convivial vibes. The residence has a wealth of such ambiances and a variety of decors, the result of meticulous renovation works, conducted so as to leave a maximum of opportunities. The independent dwelling, in an excellent state of repair, is an immediate bonus.
