To the left is the drawing room (38m2), which has two sets of double doors to the covered terrace, and good quality oak flooring. Tall corner cupboards on north wall. A stone fireplace, with bookcases either side, and chandelier add elegance. Opposite the drawing room is the formal dining room (38m2), with windows overlooking the garden and park on the south and west. Oak flooring as in entrance hall. There is a magnificent chandelier and a fireplace with hardwood surround. Double doors to covered porch.
The kitchen is accessed from the entrance hall, and also has double doors to the parking area and directly to the dining room. It has a lovely old fireplace, double oven, double sinks under window. At the foot of the staircase leading to the first floor is a pantry and guest lavatory. The staircase is baronial in scale, with original wrought iron railings.

145m2. Double doors to the parterre on the east side. Ceiling height 7ft. Stone fireplace. Several rooms used as boiler room (Viessmann boiler), workshop, laundry, store rooms, wine cellar.

First Floor
Carpeting througout. Master suite (53m2) comprising bedroom, dressing room and bathroom - generous cupboards, access to south facing terrace, bathroom with bath, washbasin, WC and bidet. Second bedroom (20m2) with bathroom comprising bath, washbasin and WC. Large study (37m2) with south and west views, and double doors to terrace.

Second Floor
Carpeted throughout. Three bedrooms (21m2, 20m2 and 18m2), each with bathroom, and store room. Stunning views. Bathroom fittings and tiles were installed several years ago, and will require some upgrading; the bathrooms have no natural light.

Manager's House (or Guest House)
Large house, comprising sitting room, entrance hall/office, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms on the ground floor (285m2) and a further two rooms on the upper floor (70m2). The finishes are of basic standard - floor tiles throughout, with basic kitchen units and bathroom fittings. The current owners rent out this house as a gite in July and August at €1,500 per week. The house could be used as a guest house, or let either on an annual lease or to holidaymakers.

Caretaker's House
House on ground floor only, located at the northern entrance gate to the property. Sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and bathroom. Currently occupied by a caretaker, who carries out routine maintenance of the buildings, garden and parkland.

The property is well provided with outbuildings, consisting of a stable block (270m2) with 4 stables and 2 workshop/stores contiguous to the caretaker's house, a larger barn (248m2) including stables opposite the caretaker's house, with a tractor shed (315m2) behind. The Guest House has a two storey barn of 240m2 at its northern end. There is also an old stone "bergerie" and a storage shed at the northern end of the property - both single storey.

Garden and Park
The garden immediately surrounding the manor house has a large number of magnificent trees, including cedars, redwoods, maples and oaks - a splendid sight in autumn particularly. There are also extensive lawns, shrubs and a limited number of flowerbeds. The current owners reside overseas, so that the garden has been designed to be easily manageable.
The park (including garden) extends to 25 hectares, mostly open meadows which are harvested by a local farmer and the hay baled for horse fodder. There are woods with mature hardwood trees, and a pine wood on the northern perimeter.

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.”
