House Saint-Emilion (33)
EXCLUSIVE TO CHRISTIE'S INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE.
This beautiful property, rather unique in its styling, is located on the banks of the River Dordogne just 10 minutes from Saint-Émilion. Extremely private, set amongst 1.2 hectares of lush gardens, the property has uninterrupted views of both the river and Saint-Émilion in the distance.
The house was formally a hunting lodge, in a Style Directoire, and is made up of three floors. The proportions to all rooms are generous and the house totals 390m².
On the ground floor, there is a cut through the centre of the property offering a glimpse of the river on the approach to the house. This space is currently used for log storage but a new owner could enclose this to offer a different use. One half of the ground floor is given over to a self-contained one bedroom suite. Complete with living area, bedroom and ensuite, this is a fantastic place for guests or a dependant to stay. The other half is split between a gym and a large utility room, all accessed from the courtyard garden.
On the first floor, reached by the cascading double staircase to the outside, is a most welcoming entrance hall. Off the hall sit two reception rooms, one currently used as a formal living area and the other a dining room. The back half of the first floor has another living room, a study and an immaculately presented kitchen with professional cooking appliances.
At second floor, there are three further bedrooms. The principle bedroom is very much a suite, complete with ensuite and a large walk-in dressing room. The other two bedrooms are both large doubles and share the main house bathroom.
The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with additional features such as the stone pond, Mediterranean planting to the side of the dining terrace and the courtyard garden adding style and intrigue. The courtyard garden is a haven of peace and tranquillity, with herbs and flowers providing a wonderful calming aroma. The heated bassin, tiled to perfection, is a great place to take a dip and enjoy the peace and quiet. The gardens of the property gently slope down to the banks of the River Dordogne and there is another seating area by the waters edge to pass the time of day.
This is a property renovated to the highest standard, with attention to detail absolutely everywhere. An impeccable, turn-key home just a short distance from the world famous village of Saint-Émilion.
