Full description:

Set on the outskirts of a pretty village with a few amenities, this large property with plenty of character features offers tranquil places to relax in and out of the house. It is quite close to the Atlantic beaches, ideal for those who enjoy surfing and has easy access to Dax and the Pyrenees for walking or skiing.

There are 4 hectares of land surrounding the house, a stable and an overgrown outdoor arena suitable for exercising horses or ponies. The house itself has been used as a secondary residence for the last 20 years and would benefit from some refurbishment and redecoration to realise its full potential.

The tree and shrub lined drive from the road winds round to a circular drive in front of the house with a fountain in the centre. Steps lead up to a large tiled verandah with shade on either side of the vestibule and front door. These are suitable for al fresco dining and lounging and there is door access to one of the lounges.

The lounge has the original wooden floor, built in cupboards and a large fireplace. A similar sized lounge also looking to the front has a built in TV unit and fireplace and doors to the terrace. There is a wide hallway with original tiling from which a wooden stair leads to the upper floors. There is another large room, currently used as an office but equally suited to a separate dining room.

A downstairs cloakroom or toilet can be accessed in the corridor leading to the dining kitchen. This is a large well-fitted space with modern units and worktops with integrated appliances. There is also a large fireplace with a wood-burning stove and the table sits at the window overlooking the rear gardens.

Outside steps from the corridor lead to the back of the property where there is an outbuilding which could be a summer kitchen, wood store and an area for machinery storage. The land which is set to grass extends from here.
Internally a stair leads to the basement which is dry and currently houses a cave as well as providing a laundry area and large storage space.

The mezzanine floor has a shower room which could be refreshed. The first floor has a large bathroom with corner bath and built-in storage. It is ensuite to the master bedroom with windows on two sides, a wooden floor and feature fireplace. In the centre facing the fountain is an ornate shower room with a Juliette balcony which is ensuite to the second bedroom. A further bedroom with the original wooden floor completes this level.

The hallway is spacious and bright and the stairs lead to a further 5 rooms, 2 of which are bedrooms with en suite facilities in the eaves, a further 1 has a built-in sink cupboard, and another a dressing area. A smaller room in the centre suitable for a child completes the accommodation.
All in all a good house for a large family or lots of visitors. Plenty of space inside and outside and very private.

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-Baynes is a good fit for you, or indeed whether you even need a service such as ours.

Maxwell-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.”
