Upper Ground Floor
The transparency of this house is astonishing. Every prospect pleases. The main entrance is through a glass door with a copper covered porch into the Dining Hall to the west. The flooring throughout the upper ground and lower ground floors is of Turkish unpolished marble which continues to the outside terraces generating a sensation of indoor/outdoor flow.

Drawing Room. There is a large open fireplace on the west wall. Windows on three sides, with wonderful views through a large arched east doorway out to the lake and to the pond on the south elevation. Access to the kitchen and entrance hall through archways. Several floor to ceiling windows in the house have wooden shutters and fly screens which can be rolled into the wall cavity itself, a rare and highly efficient feature. The highly sophisticated lighting system can be fully controlled and dimmed from all switches.

Master Bedroom. Situated on the upper ground floor, accessed from the entrance hall. It has large arched floor to ceiling windows looking east over the lake and west over the orchard. One of the arches slides into the hidden wall giving access to a wooden terrace, leading to the infinity pool. There are fitted wardrobes and a built-in dressing table. The bedroom is open plan to the bathroom, and an oak cantilever stairway leads to the dressing room upstairs, which has generous space for clothes and footwear. All four bedrooms are en-suite and have top quality fittings throughout. The master bedroom, for example, has a Dornbracht Sieger design shower, which has won prizes in publications such as the RIBA Journal - this gives an indication of the quality of product which the owner has sourced. Baths, washbasins and taps were manufactured by leading suppliers such as Czech & Speak, Le Froe, Boffi and Antonio Lapi.

Kitchen. The kitchen has a glorious large open fireplace on the north wall, with copper mantel. La Canche electric oven with hob and extractor system, Miele steamer, Miele microwave, Gaggenau extractor over specialised Miele Wok plate, Bosch fridge. Miele dishwasher, double sink and drainer. Generous kitchen cupboards. Central unit includes table and second dining area.

Lower Ground Floor
Cantilever solid oak stairs with a glass wall lead from the kitchen to the Lower Ground level, into a second salon or den overlooking the large pond. This room leads off to two spacious en-suite bedrooms. One bedroom and the salon have sliding glass doors leading to a terrace on the south side overlooking the pond. The other bedroom and bathroom look to the west, and there is a path and steps up to the pool. Throughout the house some walls are natural sandstone, and others smooth plastered; this lightens the interior considerably. All bathrooms are very spacious with separate WC and bidets, separate showers, two wash handbasins and bath.

First Floor
Behind a glass wall to the kitchen is another floating oak stairway to the upper floor. Here, there is a utility room and spacious guest room en suite with separate shower and washbasin. There is also a separate WC with designer washbasin and a storage room, both with translucent arched doors. The current owners use the guestroom as an office. The utility room has a sink unit with drainer, Miele washing machine and tumble drier, wine fridge, second freezer. Solid oak floors throughout. Ceiling beams limewashed white.

About Maxwell Baynes, Mérignas

A Note from the Partners

Thank you for pausing to read about our luxury real estate service. A lot of thought has been put into this note in the hope that it will tell you a bit about us as an organization. It could also help with your decision as to whether Maxwell-Storrie-Baynes is a good fit for you, or indeed whether you even need a service such as ours.

Maxwell-Storrie-Baynes is not seeking to be just another Agency. Our model is different to traditional French agencies in an effort to be focused on clients. We do this by removing conflicts of interest that are systemic within French agency. Our commitment to you is to provide a service with professional ethics (underwritten by both qualifications and reputation) placed at the forefront of our behavior. Your satisfaction and willingness to refer us to others will be our measure of success.

A quality that we admire in others is a willingness to take responsibility for their actions. Accountability therefore is important to us and it is why we have intentionally put our names on the business to be available and visible to both our clients and our community.

So, why are we your best choice?

•We love what we do and the place that we do it.

•We are very focused and offer a niche-boutique service for beautiful properties in the city of Bordeaux and surrounding regions of South West France.

•We love wine and wine properties.

•We care what you think of us.

•We believe that good agency is good advice.

•We understand the importance of discretion and confidentiality that many of our clients demand.

•We prequalify our inventory because we have learnt what you like.

•We have earned top real estate qualifications from France (Carte Professionnelle), the US (Broker/Realtor) and the UK (M.R.I.C.S).

•We intentionally practice at being good listeners and we ask good questions.

•You will never wait more than a day for a return call or email.

•We are over 40 years of age, we understand business and are skillful negotiators holding deals together that otherwise might not make it to a successful conclusion.

•We enjoy property, people and bringing them together.

•We take marketing very seriously and carefully research what works and what is a waste of time and money.

•We think good photography is a non-negotiable in real estate agency and so we regularly engage a professional photographer to take outstanding photos of MSB clients’ homes.

•As partners we are a true partnership team. We share all the costs and commissions equally so you always get all of us and all of our properties. All of us are equally here to help you

•Each territory we cover has only one agent in it – this ensures that there is no internal conflict of interests within MSB getting in the way of client service.

•We believe in showing up on time; doing what we say; finishing what we start; and saying please and thank you.

•We like what Albert Einstein said: “Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
