in the midst of Bordeaux’s Saint-Michel district
In the midst of Bordeaux, just a stone’s throw from the Pont-de-Pierre bridge and the famous Rue-Sainte-Catherine. Bordeaux train station is but 10 minutes away on foot. Paris is 2 hours by TGV train; a tram station is 5 minutes away. This house stands in the cosmopolitan Saint-Michel district, now highly sought-after by those newly arriving in town. Food shops and restaurants are numerous. The Marché-des-Capucins, an immense covered food market dating back to the middle of the 1700’s, is but a 3-minute walk. Known by locals as the “Stomach of Bordeaux”, the Marché-des-Capucins is a confusion of fragrances and savours. All schools are to be found nearby.
Constructed overt two levels, this house has had several lives like most of the buildings in the district. It is the result of transformation works carried out on the former warehouses of a presbytery. Renovated in 2015, this house has large rooms. It stands in the rear courtyard out of sight of onlookers and away from all noise.
It is entered off the street via a private car parking space. The garden, laid out in front of the house, is ideal for relaxing and recharging one’s batteries. The front door opens into a corridor that provides access, on one side, to a large lounge and, on the other, to a dining room and adjoining kitchen, spanning a floor surface area of approx. 50 m². The floor has been redone as new. It is covered with imitation parquet flooring. The restoration works have given the walls back the charm of exposed dressed stone. Following on from the fully fitted, contemporary kitchen, a patio with an atrium window is laid out in an old courtyard. It houses a wooden stairway, going upstairs. A study and a laundry room.
The first floor comprises four bedrooms; the second floor is taken up by one bedroom and an attic. Most of these rooms include a wooden cupboard or a wardrobe. some of the ceiling moulding is very wide. The floors are covered with old parquet flooring. Two bathrooms and a shower room.
The garden is shady.
This house, in an ever-changing district, now abounds in assets: its site, its tranquillity, the quality of its materials, its proximity to the train station and the Capucins’ market, its spaciousness and its ease of access via the ring road. Ideally located in the town, this property bears witness to the hive of activity of the Marché-des-Capucins, whilst being set back off the street and out of the way of passers-by.
Everything is ready for new owners to move straight in without any works.
