Exquisite property

A refurbished embassy, Bordeaux

A refurbished embassy

Entirely refurbished, the former US embassy provides 350 sq m. of living space in the heart of the city, with a gigantic garden

A former US embassy, this property is located in the upscale village of Le Bouscat, near Bordeaux. Behind its stone walls, it provides 350 sq m of living space on two levels, in the middle of a vast 1,200 sq m garden planted with bamboos. Says the Ateliers Lofts & Associés Bordeaux: "The vintage materials - wood floor, mouldings and fireplaces - have been refurbished and repainted to give the property a more contemporary style, blending design furniture from the 1930s and 1950s with modern elements." On the first floor, a corridor distributes the reception rooms, including a living room with a fireplace, a huge kitchen and a boudoir with a library opening on the garden. Three bedrooms and one bathroom complete the level. Three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms are located upstairs along with a gorgeous living room and its open kitchen. A big outdoor swimming pool is also part of the estate. Commodities and renowned schools are within walking distance.
