In southern Burgundy, a Tuscan-inspired recreational residence in grounds of 3 hectares.
Located in the south of the Burgundy wine-growing region, the property is surrounded by a wealth of nature, gastronomy, culture and history. La Roche de Solutré, Cluny abbey, the river Saône and the vineyard slopes form a backdrop for several Michelin-starred restaurants. Over the years the Mâcon area has become a modern transport hub. Lyon is accessible via the A6 motorway or by high-speed train in less than an hour. Paris is a mere 2-hour train journey while Geneva is a 1.5-hour drive via the A40 motorway. European capitals are a short flight away from Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport. For day-to-day life, the property is within the Mâcon urban area (population of eighty thousand), which boasts all services and conveniences.
The building was designed during the reign of Napoleon I, in 1805. The rediscovery of the remains of Pompeï and military campaigns in Italy in the late 18th century no doubt influenced its Tuscan look. The house boasts several typically Italian features: a limestone façade in nonchalant ochre tones, greying wooden slatted shutters, arched dormer windows, a low-hanging roof of canal tiles and a porch supported by two columns. To the west, the outbuildings opposite include a house to be renovated. There are three separate entrances to the beautiful shaded grounds, which hide discreetly behind dry stone walls.
The houseThe three-floor building is perfectly symmetrical with cellars, a main part and two slightly angled wings. Inside, circulation is simple: on each floor, the rooms lead off a landing and corridor. The East-West aspect and numerous windows allow for plenty of light.
Ground floor
From the courtyard, the rooms lead off a long corridor paved with square stones. A white stone half-turn staircase with a wrought-iron bannister leads to the upper floors. The red-hued kitchen boasts professional fittings and is ideal for residential use. To the east, the three linked reception rooms overlook the leafy grounds. The baroque-style music room features wooden panels, romantic painted landscapes and gilded mouldings. The pink marble fireplace sports a mirrored overmantel. Geometrically laid parquet floor and four large windows. The living room takes pride of place in the centre of the house, its two patio doors leading out to a patio overlooking the grounds. Here, the mosaic tiled floor has an all-round frieze and an ornate centrepiece. The Louis XIII-style overmantel above the wooden fireplace features a portrait. Above the double doors, coats of arms indicate the rich past of an old French family. The dining room, ideally located between the living room and the kitchen, also has access to the south-facing patio. Mosaic-tiled floor and half-height wooden panels. The dining room and kitchen are currently rented to two chefs whose cuisine is part of the estate’s tourist attraction.
First floor
A wide landing leads to two en-suites with chevron parquet flooring. The third door leads to an independent flat where a corridor leads to a large bedroom with dressing room, shower room, living room with parquet floor and a fitted kitchen.
Second floor
The second floor houses guests. The layout is the same as the first floor. The six en-suites have large bedrooms with either bath or shower. Terracotta tiled floors throughout. Most rooms have fireplaces. All rooms are well-lit and double aspect with large windows, some arched.
The staircase goes from stone to wood between the second floor and the loft. A landing leads to the loft space. There is plenty of room but little potential for conversion to a living area. In bygone days there was a roof terrace on the top of the main building, which linked the two wings. All the roofs have been restored …
