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 – known for their work designing interiors for Soho House (LA, Berlin, Oxfordshire), and The Groucho member’s club in London – and leading interior design studio Morpheus & Co. (Six Senses Residences Courchevel, Club Thirty Nine, Monte Carlo) have been commissioned by Les Bordes to collaborate on delivery of the much-awaited Cour du Baron residences, as well as breathing new life into existing buildings on the estate.

Les Bordes is located 90 minutes from Paris and is nestled within the ancient Sologne Forest in the beautiful and historic Loire Valley. Taking inspiration from the historic priory and agricultural buildings dotted around the estate, Michaelis Boyd’s designs have retained original features such as weathered stonework and clay roof tiles, dramatic high ceilings, exposed beams and rustic limestone flooring – whilst injecting a modern vernacular to create contemporary, light filled spaces.

For the phase-one development of 48 residential dwellings, architects Michaelis Boyd have designed three distinct styles, traditional, classical and contemporary. Each property boasts an extensive outdoor area interconnecting with the surrounding woodland, creating an authentic synergy with the natural world. Each of the different styles is available in a variety of sizes to suit every individual and their family.
