Margaux Manor – French Classic in Bowral

Vive la difference! A French Classic perfectly at home in country Australia

It seems like a marriage made in heaven – classic French design wedded to an iconic Australian landscape, and what makes Margaux Manor work is the careful balancing of these elements to create what is surely one of the most magnificently distinctive estates in Australia.

Drawing on a family heritage of French architecture, Margaux Manor is not a replica but a return to classic French chateau living, and appears perfectly at home under the big sky and rambling surrounds of country New South Wales. The accent is decidedly French – even down to having a prestige winery as a neighbour.

None of this came about by accident – owner builder Maryann Nolan drew upon her own family’s heritage as renowned French and then Australian architects, added her professional love of quality antiques with extensive experience in interior design and lovingly created the house she wanted to live in.

Margaux Manor was designed as a French country estate in BowralOne of Margaux Manor’s surprises is the almost unbelievably low maintenance. Maryann said that the 450mm sealed sandstone walls and precision laid granite floors create an environment that is virtually dust free and self-regulating – Margaux Manor is delightfully cool in summer and easy to keep warm in winter.

The neutral colour of the materials and the classic design lend themselves to a wide variety of décor, and Margaux Manor is available with its existing furnishings or can be transformed into a contemporary masterpiece.

After getting over the initial “wow” factor, one quickly realises what an eminently livable luxury home or prestige rental Margaux Manor would make, and why the French chateau is one of history’s most enduring designs.
