Full description:

Beautifully designed villa of 5 bedrooms with glorious views over vineyards and meadows. The house is on the edge of a small hamlet near the village of Riocaud. The house was recently reconstructed on the site of an older building, which has the advantage of creating an excellent designed internal layout and optimum natural light. The reception areas and kitchen have polished ceramic floor tiles, which contribute to the easy maintenance. An entirely new kitchen has just been installed, with top quality appliances, attractive cupboards and polished granite work surfaces. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, each with modern bathroom ensuite. There is a two bedroom stone gite (in need of some renovation), a small stone barn and a large swimming pool. Good outdoor entertaining areas. In excellent condition, lock up and go.
Villa de 5 chambres parfaitement conçue offrant de magnifiques vues sur des vignobles et des prés. La maison se trouve au bord d'un petit hameau proche du village de Riocaud. La reconstruction récente sur le site d'une bâtisse plus ancienne a permis un excellent agencement et une clarté optimale. Les sols des lieux de réception et de la cuisine sont en carreaux de céramique poli, contribuant à la facilité de l'entretien. La cuisine vient tout juste d'être entièrement équipée en appareils électroménagers de qualité supérieure, placards intégrés et plans de travail en granit poli. Les chambres sont spacieuses et confortables, chacune avec une salle de bains moderne. La propriété offre aussi un gîte avec 2 chambres (nécessitant quelques travaux de rénovation), une petite grange en pierre et une grande piscine. En état exceptionnel... où l'on peut poser ses valises.

Ground Floor

The accommodation is arranged on two floors. A generous entrance hall leads to a double storey sunny atrium in the centre of the house. Leading off to the left of the entrance hall and atrium is the living/dining room (51M2), which has a large stone fireplace and glorious views to south and east. There are two sets of French doors leading to the covered terrace on the south side. On the opposite side of the entrance hall is a light and airy study. There is a second study with adjoining shower room, which could be used as a downstairs bedroom if required. The atrium also gives access to kitchen/breakfast room (38M2), which was completely renewed in 2013 with new units and appliances, including polished granite worktops; French doors to terrace. A well equipped utility room leads off the kitchen. Downstairs windows are double glazed, and fitted with either wooden or electrically operated aluminium shutters. Flooring is of large format ceramic tiles.

The stairs in the atrium lead up to a balustraded landing which gives access to four bedrooms and a TV room/library. Three of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, all with showers, WC and washbasin. The master bedroom has a separate dressing room with generous cupboard space and its bathroom has twin washbasins. There is a separate bathroom for the fourth bedroom.

The electrical wiring system was renewed in 2013, and a new Viessmann boiler installed. Oil fired central heating.

The property has a traditional stone gite of 87M2 to the rear of the main house. Requiring modernisation, this could be transformed into a charming guest cottage, to provide a large open living room and kitchen downstairs with two bedrooms and bathroom on the upper floor.
There is a stone barn on the west boundary, which was completely rebuilt in 2012. Measuring 7.5 metres x 4 metres, it has been converted into an excellent workshop/atelier, and houses garden equipment and the filtration system for the swimming pool.
The swimming pool measures 12.5 metres x 6 metres. It is of excellent standard and design, with steps down on the north side. Standard chlorine filtration system. Heavy plastic cover for winter. The pool is bordered by attractive stone paving, which provides ample space for sun loungers and alfresco meals. Beautiful views of the vineyards and hills beyond.
Land area is 2 hectares. The meadows are tended by a local farmer, who uses the hay for his livestock; this arrangement can be continued or cancelled by a new owner. There are some lovely old trees on the property, including a venerable and large oak with a tree house for children.

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.”
