Intrigue, invention and flamboyant style - this Bourgeoise mansion in the centre of the village of Pujols just has to be explored.  Built in 1896 by a wealthy inventor, at the turn of the century this house had all the mod-cons, no expense spared!  There are 6 bedrooms, beautiful courtyard gardens, garage & private parking.

The house is the tallest in the village, is arranged over 4 floors and has 345m2 habitable space.   It has to be said that the views from the second and third floor are spectacular - the current owners see in the New Year watching the fireworks in Bordeaux from the windows.  Original features such as the cement tiles on the ground floor and wooden floorboards on the first and second floors are intact as are all the original fireplaces.  Obviously renovation work will be needed to modernise the house but the structural works are in good condition.  There is plenty of scope to extend the living space up to around 600m2. Here’s the layout:

Ground floor:
Utility room
Large pantry
Ground floor bedroom
Shower room
Separate WC

First floor:
Living room
Dining room
Large office / bedroom
Small storage room

Second floor:
4 bedrooms
Shower room

Third floor:
Several rooms including the maids’ rooms and storage rooms.

Built by Monsieur Desprin, a wealthy inventor, if you’re a writer searching for inspiration, the story of this house would make a wonderful novel.  M. Desprin installed a water tower and 70m deep borehole as well as a ‘state of the art’ central heating system.  All the main rooms have a grill either near the ground or in the plinths where air is diffused from a large wood-burning oven on the ground floor. 

At the front of the house is a Fer à Cheval staircase - the scene of many a family portrait.  With a hint of the Clochemerle about it, in the middle of the beautiful courtyard garden is a beautiful fountain that was originally intended to be installed on the village square.  However, after a disagreement with the Town Hall, M Desprin installed it in his front garden instead!

The house is sits just back from the main square of Pujols, a pretty little village with the classic french restaurant on the main square and shady seating area under the plane trees.  Situated just a few kilometres south of the river Dordogne, there’s plenty of walks and wild swimming spots to explore.  It’s also just 6km from Castillon-la-Bataille which has all the shops and amenities you might need as well as a station with direct trains straight into the centre of Bordeaux.

Properties as interesting as this don’t come up that often - it really is a unique opportunity for someone that shares Monsieur Desprin’s vision for invention, creativity and style.
