Located in the bastide town of Castillonnès, on the border of the Dordogne, this grand building was designed by Victor Louis-famed for the Opera House in Bordeaux. The current owners have sensitively and sympathetically restored the house under the supervision of batiments de France. In the lower ground floor, the medieval fortifications can still be seen; and in the floor below there is an open water source. The ground floor comprises an imposing entrance hall, 4 salons and a grand salon, opening to a terrace with panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. and a large kitchen. The first floor comprises five en suite bedrooms, accessed by two staircases. The east wing could provide two further rooms/apartments. There is a separate self contained apartment in the lower ground floor with its own access.
I think I’m in love! That courtyard and U shaped layout is fantastic. Also nice to see a lovely interior. I would be quite happy to live with it just as it is (at least for some time). For sale (and photos) via Leggett Immobilier and Le Figaro Properties.
