Full of impeccable details and old-world charm, this gorgeous Vintage Oaks home is a stunning ode to the charm of the French countryside.
If you’ve ever set foot in New Braunfels, you’re well aware: the Hill Country is no stranger to German influence. From the authentic knock-your-socks-off kolaches at Naelegin's Bakery to the “Wilkommen” sign at Wurstfest, our little Texas Eden has been the home of Deutsch settlers since the 1800s.
This heritage can be seen in plenty of traditional German architecture throughout town, as well as newer neighborhoods nodding to the town’s history with “Euro-Texan” architecture.
It seems, however, that the designers of 1175 Bordeaux Lane wanted something a little different. From the front door to the back porch, take a look at the French details in this beautiful home.
Nestled in the arms of a full Hill Country acre, 1175 Bordeaux Lane screams “rustic elegance” from the get-go, boasting a mixed-stone exterior and an adorable front porch supported by stately columns.
Though the front door was imported from a stately 1800s mansion near Paris (ooh la la!), we can’t help but think this home looks straight out of the French countryside.
Considering its strong aesthetic and unique details, it’s not surprising that 1175 Bordeaux Lane was designed by a (design firm?) with an eye for artistry. This custom home was designed and handcrafted by Renaissance7, whose design philosophy touts: “Architecture is the ultimate expression of art.”
Step through those authentic antique front doors, and it’s clear: this home is a picture-perfect blend of luxury details and Vintage elegance. Boasting inspired French country details, the interior is both cozy and clean, displaying hardwood floors, plush chairs, dark wood details, and exposed beams.
Notably built for entertaining guests, 1175 Bordeaux Lane offers an enviable open-concept floor plan. The home’s well-proportioned, comfortable rooms are generous in size and feature tall (fourteen-foot!) ceilings, chandeliers, and retractable pocket sliders.
Keeping in step with the French love for wonderful food, 1175 Bordeaux Lane’s gourmet chef’s kitchen keeps the Parisian vibe alive with handcrafted cabinets (look at that scroll work!), all-new, top-of-the-line appliances, and a professional grade Italian gas range.
Entertaining may be lovely, but when it’s time to retreat into your private quarters, 1175 Bordeaux Lane offers a getaway-style master suite that feels like a royal vacation. Huge windows welcome in the Hill Country sunshine, and distressed wood doors hint of a cozy cottage while the luxury, spa-style bathroom is more reminiscent of a palace
And the luxury details don’t stop at the master suite. Featuring two ensuite bedrooms and an additional office (also packed with unique Euro-Texan details), this floor plan ensures you can fit in the whole family.
What would a Hill Country home be without its outdoor space? This generous back porch leads out of the common area, inviting you to feast your eyes on the Texas views...and trust us, there are plenty of them. Spread across nearly 4,000 beautifully maintained acres, the community of Vintage Oaks truly exemplifies the phrase “wide-open space.”
Don’t get us wrong: we love the lederhosen and the schnitzel. But we’re also pretty dang delighted with this nod to French elegance.
