Though a 19th-century renovation lovingly preserved its intricate boiserie, the property had fallen into disrepair—the château’s lifetime has spanned several ownership changes, religious wars, and the French Revolution—and Benderli found the house and its surrounding outbuildings in need of an update that married their history and his client’s contemporary lifestyle.

Over the next seven years the place was introduced to new heating, ventilation, plumbing, and electrical systems and applying era-appropriate cosmetic fixes across the board: He restored fireplaces, installed antique parquet floors, and replaced windows and roofing tiles. He maintained the gilded accents that appear throughout the home but in the kitchen, he removed partitions to create an airy Calacatta marble-and-steel gathering space for entertaining family-style in the 21st century.

Benderli’s genre-bending aesthetic naturally extends to the furnishings and accessories, a mix of antique-store finds and modern-design classics. By choosing pieces of different styles and matching them with the history of the place, the designer managed o get an altogether masterpiece of a project. Maintaining the classical lines of the chateau and adding modern furniture to the building resulted in a contemporary neoclassical home that one craves to live in. The result is a home that will no doubt stand the test of time for another five centuries.
