Located 90 miles from Paris, Les Bordes Estate has partnered with two of London's pre-eminent design houses, as it transforms from a world-leading golf venue to a luxurious bolthole for international homeowners through the capsule collection of homes at Cour du Baron.
Leading architects Michaelis Boyd and interior design studio Morpheus & Co. have been commissioned by Les Bordes to collaborate on delivery of the much-awaited Cour du Baron residences.
Taking inspiration from the estate's historic priory and agricultural buildings, Michaelis Boyd's designs have retained original features whilst injecting a modern vernacular to create contemporary, light filled spaces.
In the Clubhouse Bar, Crittall-style external doors open to the great outdoors, bringing nature and light in. Six brass latticed chandeliers dot the space to provide a soft glow by dusk and sculptural interest by day. The interiors combine deep teal walls, luxurious marble and walnut finishes and the original limestone flooring and stone fireplace.
Cour du Baron Residences
The traditional style uses local stone available in three different colours, featuring tiled roofs, stone detailing, painted timber doors and windows, traditionally proportioned roof pitches and dormer windows that bring a timeless quality to these exquisite homes. Inside, exposed rafters provide a touch of softness and a Gallic flavour to the impressive living spaces.
The timber-clad, gabled structures for the contemporary style are inspired by local agricultural buildings. Slimline metal windows and standing-seam zinc rooves gives a clean and contemporary accent to the modern barn vernacular. Exposed pitched ceilings internally and expansive corner windows add architectural drama to the generously proportioned spaces.
Morpheus & Co, the international interior design house behind some of the most exclusive hospitality and residential developments of the last 25 years, are the creatives behind the residential interiors. World-renowned for their turnkey delivery and completely unique pieces, they have designed a variety of bespoke "Cour du Baron" furniture collections to blend intimately with property design and the local environs.
They are in active consultation with owners worldwide to deliver their dream interiors at Les Bordes, combining tactile, relaxing interiors and timeless design with biophilic features for a feeling of comfort and inspiration.
Les Bordes was lovingly created in response to a growing demand for somewhere to escape, and answers this perfectly with its offering of community living centered around wellness and a wholesome, coveted lifestyle.
Governed separately from the residential community and rest of the estate, the world-famous Les Bordes Golf Club remains exclusively private. The opening of its highly anticipated second 18-hole course took place this summer, created by globally acclaimed golf architect Gil Hanse.
