The holiday home of the late Stanley Kubrick, one of the world’s greatest and most enigmatic film directors, and his wife Christiane, an artist, is on the market in the walled town (also known as a bastide) of Domme in Dordogne in southwestern France.
The picturesque 17th-century Périgordian limestone villa, which was recently renovated, boasts seven bedrooms and five bathrooms set over 4,300 square feet, a large walled garden with pool, two pigeonnier towers (or dovecotes), and just over an acre of traditionally landscaped grounds that overlook the Dordogne valley.
Charming countryside elegance abounds throughout the estate by way of hardwood floors, beautiful window frames, shutters, doorways, and other woodwork painted in a pale teal, original stonework on the exterior, a vaulted cellar, and much more. Famous for his mastery of spaces and interiors in his films, the director most likely had a unique set up here.
Currently owned by Christiane, it’s asking €1,485,000, or approximately $1,567,117. The Kubricks’ main residence is the Childwickbury Manor in Hertfordshire, England.
