We are delighted to announce that the first three hamlets consisting of 17 homes in phase one are nearing completion and will be ready and available by the end of June for sale or rent.
The homes in this phase benefit from being the closest to our beautiful belle époque Chateau with its Country Club facilities, which will be completed in 2018/9. It is here that residents, guests and local ‘members’ will come together during the day and into the evening to drink, dine and enjoy everything from courses and events to concerts. Facilities will include a library, bistro-bar, barbecue terrace and gardens, 20 metre indoor swimming pool, state of the art spa, tennis courts and croquet lawn.
Completed homes include one and two-storey, detached, luxury homes with private gardens and integrated pools, set within the estate’s landscaped gardens in clusters with shared courtyards. Each hamlet contains a mix of house styles to provide a diverse and authentic French village feel. The homes are built using local materials and traditional design cues of this part of south western France. Some are faced in warm stone, some rendered in earthy tones of traditional render.
The homes in this phase are built on a gentle south facing slope, and many enjoy a stunning view of rolling vineyards and dense oak forests for miles around. Residents can relax on their own terrace or alternatively spend time socialising with neighbours in their own courtyard.
The interiors of the homes are designed to make the most of the region’s fresh air and light, with high ceilings of oak beams, open-plan living rooms that open out onto spacious verandas and terraces via floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors.
Pools are integrated into the design of each home, and so can be seen and accessed directly from your living space. These design features provide a connection with nature, offering views across water and through verdant private gardens to the undulating woodlands of the estate beyond.
Inbuilt fireplaces or wood burners, soft coloured limestone floors and exposed wood beams help to make the homes feel cosy, especially in winter. The country homes have the latest in modern comforts with cleverly designed kitchens brimming with the latest appliances and cool quartz worktops; bathrooms with cool, clean lines, and room-by-room temperature-controlled reversible air conditioning.
Owners can use their property privately or opt for a combination of both investment and private use. La Durantie provides a safe buy-to-rent option which can be tailored to meet individuals’ lifestyle requirements through the French Leaseback system, with the opportunity to reclaim 20% VAT from the French Government backed scheme on the purchase price and receive a guaranteed rental income.
Homes are maintained in the owner’s absence ensuring this is a truly hassle-free holiday home.
Homes range from 1-5 bed and priced from €275,000 (approx. £237,000) to €777, 530 (approx. £661,761). *All prices are nett (after VAT refund).
