3,850,000 EUR
3,311,000 GBP4,119,500 USD
Immaculately presented 11 bedroom light-coloured limestone Chateau, situated in a quiet setting close to Bordeaux.

With an overhauled slate-covered roof, the chateau is positioned at the centre of 5 hectares of grounds accessed by a star shaped network of gravelled paths.

There is also a rare 19th century wind turbine known as an 'Eolienne Bollee' with foot access, which was used to draw water to feed cattle grazing on pastures around the chateau. Today it provides a remarkable feature nestled into the woodland. A 29m2 heated outdoor swimming 'lap' pool with countercurrent, pool house and shower sit next to the chateau.

Immaculately presented 11 bedroom light-coloured limestone Chateau, situated in a quiet setting close to Bordeaux.

With an overhauled slate-covered roof, the chateau is positioned at the centre of 5 hectares of grounds accessed by a star shaped network of gravelled paths.

There is also a rare 19th century wind turbine known as an 'Eolienne Bollee' with foot access, which was used to draw water to feed cattle grazing on pastures around the chateau. Today it provides a remarkable feature nestled into the woodland. A 29m2 heated outdoor swimming 'lap' pool with countercurrent, pool house and shower sit next to the chateau.

A 'son et lumiere' installation lights up the chateau in the evening whilst music projects from hidden loudspeakers across the chateau grounds.

Every room in the chateau offers sweeping views onto the surrounding park.

The 65m2 living room has south, north and east facing floor-to-ceiling windows inviting nature into the chateau. 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 lift connects the four floors of the chateau. The lift ride has internal views onto rooms on each floor as it climbs 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 features a master bedroom with a balcony and dressing room, 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 a separate bedroom and bathroom.

The main property offers some 830m2 of usable space.

A private motorised gate offers access to the grounds, which features both the renovated 18th century post house converted into 3 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.

Buying a Property in France

1. Signing the Agreement (Compris)

On finding a property you wish to purchase you will need to negotiate the terms, price and conditions of the sale with the owner.

The next step, once you are in agreement, is to sign the preliminary contract (Compromis de Vente). This is a legal document and after ten days will be binding on both parties. Rules change frequently in France and it is best to consult with your notary about when this period starts. Generally the compris will be signed in France with the Agent.

Variants can be included in the compris, for example an Acte (clause) can be added if the name or names to go on the title deed have not been finalised. If a mortgage will be required to purchase the property, the details for this, including the name of the mortgage company, must be on the compris.

2. Paying the Deposit

Generally the deposit will be 10% of the agreed purchase price. This will normally be paid to the notaire. There are exceptions to this, if the agent holds a carte professionelle, is bonded and fully registered then you may pay them, but do not hand over the deposit to anyone else. If for some reason the purchase does not go through, for example, if you write to the notaire and the agent that you do not wish to go continue with the purchase before the contract is binding (within seven days of signing the compris), then your deposit would be repaid. This would also apply if a condition had not been met, or the mayor or S.A.F.E.R. (a government agency that has the right of first purchase on most rural property that comes onto the market in France) could oblige the purchaser to give way. If you decide after the seven days 'cooling off' period that you do not wish to complete the purchase and pull out of the sale you would lose your deposit. If however the vendor pulls out of the sale then you will receive your deposit back plus the same amount from the vendor.

3. On Completion

Generally it will take around two or three months to complete the purchase.

During this time the balance of the purchase money must be paid into the account of the notaire, this must be done well ahead of the completion date. The notaire will prepare the documents, check that the deed of sale (Acte de Vente) is in order and have the legal title ready to be signed over. It is possible to have someone sign on your behalf if you give them power of attorney. An interpreter may be of use at this point if your French is not very good and many Notaires will suggest (or insist) that an interpreter is with you.
