Fabulous renovated château with apartment, Gironde, Nouvelle Aquitaine
This elegant 10 bedroomed chateau, built around 1750, is south facing, overlooking its own park with mature trees just a short drive from the cosmopolitan city of Bordeaux. The central entrance hall is light and spacious, and leads directly through to the rear entrance with steps down to the rear garden. The principal reception rooms have tall ceilings and large windows. There are magnificent original features throughout, including marble fireplaces, plaster relief mouldings, and the original polished hardwood floors. The internal layout is quite flexible and could easily be restructured to accommodate different needs. The chateau has been stylishly renovated and these works have included a complete new roof. The lower level of the building has recently been completely restyled with a travertine floor throughout, a new kitchen also in travertine and a fabulous new bathroom with copper roll top bath, copper double sinks and a huge walk in shower.
