The Bordeaux is a 10,215 square foot entertainer’s dream. This New Orleans inspired Beaux Arts design will make you feel like you are in the heart of the French Quarter. This spacious estate needs a large parcel of land, and the immediate first impression is nothing short of stunning. Terraces and double doors look out on the property from across the front of the home, and double doors from the expansive first floor terrace lead inside to the foyer, dining room, and study. In the foyer, a movie-worthy spiral staircase provides the perfect setting for a grand entrance. The parlor off the foyer features spacious enclosed wine storage and access to the large dining room. The family room is accessible from the foyer and is open to the kitchen, bar, and game area. A glass wall between the foyer and family room shows off the inside of the wine storage in the parlor. The kitchen is equipped for entertaining a large crowd for a night, a weekend, or longer, with two large islands with bar seating as well as a breakfast room, and connects via a butler’s pantry to the dining room at the front of the home. The working pantry has ample space for appliance and food storage as well as an extra refrigerator. A sunroom off the breakfast room adds another place to eat, relax, or just enjoy the scenery, and a screened in porch beyond the family room and game room adds additional seating, dining, and cooking areas. The two-sided fireplace in the family room also faces the game room seating area, with a spot for a pool table surrounded by windows on three sides. This would also be a beautiful location to show off a grand piano or seasonal décor. The bar adds a full wall of drink storage, seating for four, a serving banquette, and an additional sink and dishwasher for use when entertaining. A second stairway to the upper level is found near the bar. A hallway beyond the foyer leads to the study, elevator, and a powder room, and finally to the luxurious and secluded primary suite. A private sitting area with a fireplace is the ideal spot to read a book or catch up on emails with your morning coffee, and the primary bedroom also features a fireplace as well as access to the private covered primary porch. The ensuite bathroom has a large soaking tub, expansive shower, coffee bar, and private toilet. The primary closet boasts two islands, two window seats, luggage storage, and washer and dryer hookups. Across the home, the guest bath is accessible from the friend’s entry by the porte cochère, and features a private full bath and walk-in closet. The laundry room, powder room, and mudroom are also in this area of the home. Two two-car garages face each other across a courtyard, with additional space for a utility vehicle and a dog washing station.
On the second level, three bedrooms each feature full baths and walk-in closets, with the front bedrooms each boasting two sets of double doors to the terrace as well as opening to private terraces at opposite sides of the home. A craft room has a large window seat and walk-in closet and a convenient trash chute to the garage below. Stairs up from the bar lead to an open loft library with window seats and built in bookcases, and a theater beyond is ready for total darkness on family movie nights. Walk-in storage is accessible from the theater room. This one-of-a-kind home will be like nothing else around it, and the lucky guests who visit will always remember their time here.

Your purchase of a Sailer Design plan includes the foundation plan, floor plans, all exterior elevations, and cornice details. Learn more →
We’d love to modify our plan to meet your needs. Many of our plans already include future expandable space. While it is easier to increase the square footage of a plan than it is to eliminate square footage, some of our plans can be made smaller. Contact us with your request and for a quote for these changes. Personalize this Plan →

Yes, we can flip the plan to meet your needs. For example, if the plan has the garage on the right side, but you need the garage on the left, we can reverse it.

Building costs vary greatly by region. We suggest consulting with a local builder to provide a building cost estimate.

What's Not Included

Architectural and Engineering stamps

Some cities and states require a licensed architect or engineer to review and stamp a set of Construction Documents. If your local building department requires one, you will need to engage a local architect or engineer for review and stamping.

Site-specific foundation plan

The included foundation plan is meant to serve as a basic guide for a typical foundation and is not site or location-specific. Sailer Design LLC recommends that you have a local designer or licensed engineer to review the plans and provide a site-specific foundation plan as necessary.

Heating, plumbing and electrical plans

Due to variations in climate and building codes, these should be supplied by local contractors. We suggest you have a local electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, or builder provide these drawings as required for permits and construction.

Material quantity list

Once your personal selections are made (types of windows, doors, exterior materials, etc…) this list should be obtained from your contractor or local building materials supplier.

Material selections

Final material selections are the responsibility of you and your builder, including proper installation.

Construction Documents

Our home plan packages offer a complete design of our homes. However, due to the uniqueness of each building site, our Construction Documents are not fully engineered to meet the requirements of each local building code, specific regional conditions, and individual building site. The plans are intended to indicate design intent and basic construction detailing. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have obtained the proper professional assistance to provide standard construction details and practices, which will result in a structurally sound and weatherproofed finished product. Variations in standard sizes (i.e. windows and doors), thicknesses, types and uses of different materials can change details. Local codes, ordinances, regulations, foundation requirements, and the layout of mechanical, electrical and plumbing may also require changes to the details.
