This lovely period estate is located about twenty minutes south of Bordeaux.
The farm is set on 1.8 hectares of land divided into private ornamental gardens in part, the rest being set aside for farm animals.
It is possible to purchase an additional 50 hectares of land around the park, if required. (Of these 50 additional hectares 50 are regulated by the Pac. )
Access across the land is facilitated by various pathways through farm and woodland.
It is rare for a property so close to Bordeaux to offer so much outdoor space and natural parkland.
The park has been carefully designed and landscaped and is currently managed in accordance to strict farming ethics, as both an agricultural plot and a plot of natural forest.
This ethos is apparent in the combined association of trees, farmland and pasture on which cattle graze, and all which exist in parallel on the same plot of land, in a system which is harmonious, balanced and ecological.
The overall potential for this estate once completely restored is great, as the property comprises the main house, a barn and a ruined building, each with an overall surface area of 400m2. Not all of the buildings are habitable, but which with relevant planning permissions development into a much vaster estate is possible.
The roof of the main house saw reparations in 2014. This building is divided into three distinct parts, two of which offer 290m2 habitable space, and the third of which requires further restoration.
The main house has been decorated in a style which marries the old with the new, the two contrasting styles coming together in perfect harmony to offer both an authentic and characterful feel; with exposed stone walls and original oak beams, a lead bath, and traditional-style stove/boiler.
At the entrance to the property there is a spacious fitted-kitchen measuring over 30m2. The main reception-room and dining-room both face outwards towards a 230m2 veranda which harbours a heated swimming pool. There is also a spacious bathroom of 20m2 on ground-floor level.
Each of the 4/ bedrooms on the first floor has a lovely view of the parkland. Upstairs there is a shower room and a study (or 5th bedroom).
The remaining 165m2 surface area belonging to the main house is not in habitable condition, albeit dry and protected from wind and rain. There is however in this section of the property a supply of both water and electricity. This part of the property is currently used as a workshop and storage-area. Should this area be converted into a habitable space, it would of course be possible to double the overall surface area of the property.
In addition to this space there is a 60m2 studio, which is used as a separate guest-house and which has a private kitchen, bedroom and sitting-room.
An old 400m2 barn sits at the entrance to the property and is useful for the storage of farm equipment. This old stone building offers further potential for development – relevant planning permissions permitting.
And finally, in addition to the rest, there is a ruined building of 400m2 on ground floor level, which dates back to the 18th Century and offers a superb opportunity for the development of yet another property on the site. As it is currently classified as a ruin, a declaration of works would be required, but its existence albeit in a ruined condition facilitates relevant planning permissions.
To whom might this property appeal?
This property will appeal to anyone looking for a large bucolic 1.8-hectare estate close to the vibrant city of Bordeaux.
The sheer quantity of habitable – or potentially habitable surface area – is a rare find indeed.
With a possible further 50 hectares available for purchase in addition, all sorts of projects are possible on this estate: including a horse-riding centre, a large gîte, a corporate retreat, or an idyllic rural escape at the gateway to Bordeaux, or Cestas.
Such a location is rare, offering an escape from the stresses of city life just a short drive away.
For international clients the proximity of Mérignac airport is a plus.
