Maisons de Maître for sale in France

A Maison de Maître (Master’s House) is an elegant, symmetrical 18th or 19th century mansion with a central front door, sash windows with shutters and a gently pitched roof sometimes (but not always) with dormer windows.

There are Maisons de Maître for sale throughout France but typically in rural (or once rural) areas where the Maître or Master once collected rents from his tenant farmers.

A townhouse in the same style is often referred to as a Maison Bourgeoise and still in the same style but typically on a more modest scale is a Gentilhommière (gentleman’s residence). A Chartreuse is a single storey house with pavilion wings found especially in Gascony (modern day Gers).

Sometimes very little separates a Maison de Maître from a Chateau so make sure you don’t miss out on the perfect property by visiting our Chateaux pages where you can search by region, price band, number of bedrooms and plot size just as you can here.

*It has to be said that sometimes Maisons de Maître (and even chateaux) come onto our site just described as ‘house’ and they are therefore not picked up by our dedicated pages. So, while our dedicated pages are the place to start your search you may wish to continue it by visiting our regional pages and sifting out the chateaux or maisons de maître with a search by price band.
