St Claire Country House is a new, luxurious French Colonial residence that sleeps 24 people across 9 bedrooms. The 9 bedrooms, and 5 bathrooms, are located across the East and West Wings of the estate. Each bedroom looks out onto the garden.
The Salon, the building in the centre of the property, serves as a warm and inviting place for friends or colleagues to gather. It has a large designer kitchen, a long French dining table and lounge area, which each seat 24, and a home theatre.
There are two outdoor living areas on lush lawn. A one-acre romantic garden around the residence completes the picture.
St Claire’s architecture is in graceful French Colonial style, harking from where the French had colonies. There are steep roofs, dormer windows, tall chimneys, verandas, French doors and rustic shutters. The interiors of St Claire have 12-foot ceilings, oak floors, marble mantle pieces, gilded mirrors, basket chandeliers, French furniture and soft colour everywhere. Wallpapers and fabrics are by Designers Guild and Sanderson.
