Authenticity in Bordeaux

The well-preserved inner courtard is located well away from prying eyes

Previously owned by wine merchants, including the famous Borie family, this splendid stone building is conveniently located in the Chartrons historical district of Bordeaux. Refurbished in 1990, the threestory property offers 700 sq m of living space, blending vintage elements with contemporary design. The spectacular vaulted ground floor features a pool table room, a lounge area with a genuine bar, as well as an indoor swimming pool, complete with a treeplanted patio. "This is the property's loft section, stresses the Ateliers Lofts & Associés Bordeaux agency, providing guests with a relaxed and cosy atmosphere." The first floor is dedicated to the living rooms and an outstanding terrace with a summer kitchen. Four vast bedrooms, equipped with individual bathrooms, are located on the second floor. A 200-sq m attic can easily house additional bedrooms. Other amenities include a secluded courtyard, a zenithal sunroom and a huge garage. Another 350 sq m garage adjacent can be bought separately. Its wide clearance allows for a maximum living space of 600 sq m, in addition to the main building. A rare opportunity to seize close to the Quinconces Place, the true economic and cultural heart of Bordeaux. Proposed price : 3,650,000 euros
