The chateau offers approximatively 700m2 of habitable space not including the converted attic. The chateau is remarkable through its luminosity due to its position and numerous large bay windows.
Le château proprement dit est un édifice en forme de U, de style classique, construit début du 19ème siècle sur des bases plus anciennes comme le prouve les dépendances dont une petite maison du 17ème siècle et les écuries et maison « dite du gardien » sur cave voutée.

To the right, double doors open up to a vast dining room with painted wood-work, parquet flooring, decorative ceiling and four bay windows open out to the courtyard and the park on the South side.To the left three arches separate the entrance and the beautiful living room with high windows and parquet flooring. The 4 meter high ceiling shows a family coat of arms and the neo-renaissance fireplace is just superb. On either side of the fireplace are majestic doors that on one side leads to the music room and the other to a hallway with a decorative wooden staircase and the Library/office. This East wing of the Chateau ends with a most gorgeous chapel with vaulted ceiling and stained glass doors. In the West wing of the chateau there is the servants staircase, kitchen, laundry room, heating room and old kitchen.

The original features in this property are stunning and bountiful, from the parquet flooring to the decorative walls and ceilings, the neo-classical fireplace, the staircase or the chapel. The tall windows accentuate these features by reflecting the sunlight on them. Simply breathtaking.

To the right of the Chateau's main courtyard, there is a large barn from the 18th century or even earlier, in which there is a gardians residence with 2 bedrooms, and bathroom. The horsestable and tack room are also in this outbuilding together with spacious garaging for two cars. Furthermore there is a small house with slate roof from the 17th century with big barn and orangery. Not far from these buildings is a vegetable plot and orchard partly enclosed by walls and a beautiful old green house.

The enormous barn will be very useful for a multitude of puposes.

A mature park of 2 hectares surrounds the château, with century old trees such as the cedar, the tall and impressive sequoia, the magnolia and the majestic oak trees. At the end of the Lime tree alleyway that leads to the château you will spot a remarkable cherry tree and a Araucaria (monkey puzzle). The park is bordered by a forrest of 7 hectares which slopes gently to the river Vonne which forms the border to this wonderful estate.

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.”
