Bordeaux, Gironde. In one of Bordeaux’s most exclusive quarters, near the Palais de Justice, the Hôtel de Ville and St Andrew’s Cathedral, in the heart of the city, this lovely third floor apartment has been beautifully renovated. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 reception room and is ready for immediate occupation. The property is one of only 3 apartments in a traditional building which has been completely renovated and upgraded and is on the top floor of the building. The accommodation, measuring 60m² of habitable space, consists of a loft-like living room with a high ceiling, emphasising the feeling of space, with a well-fitted and equipped kitchen opening on to the sitting and dining space, with stylish wooden floor and exposed stone and panelled walls. The large windows make this a very bright and welcoming room. A hallway leads to a contemporary style bathroom and 2 bedrooms with windows opening on to an inner light well. Shopping, including a hypermarket, and restaurants of all sorts, are just a few paces away as is the light railway station (Palais de Justice) and other forms of public transport. Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport is a 20-minute car ride. The city of Bordeaux is among France's most exciting, vibrant and dynamic cities.Traditionally Bordeaux has been known for its wine, gastronomy and elegant 18th Century architecture but over the past decade it has a acquired a vibrant cutting-edge. The result is a city where past and present compliment each other beautifully. This cutting edge is thanks in part to the vision of its progressive mayor, Alain Juppé who, in 1995 started a programme of rejuvenation that pedestrianised boulevards, restored neoclassical architecture, created a high-tech public transport system and reclaimed Bordeaux's former industrial docks. Half the city is now Unesco-listed, making it the largest urban World Heritage site. Since July 2017 Bordeaux (and the surrounding region) is now much easier to get to from the UK, following the opening of a new 188-mile stretch of high-speed track between Tours and Bordeaux which slashes some 70 minutes off the Paris-Bordeaux journey (down to just over two hours). Even with a change of station in Paris, it will be possible to do the journey from London by Eurostar and TGV in just five hours 55mins. The property market in Bordeaux, unlike large areas of France, is very active. There is, of course, a premium to be paid to buy property in such a sought-after city but prices are still less than half what they are in Paris. The average price in Paris is 753€ per sq ft, compared with 328€ in Bordeaux. Prices in Bordeaux are gradually climbing so investing in property here may be a shrewd move.
