Bronx-born iconic filmmaker and photographer Stanley Kubrick famously shunned Hollywood for life in a small English village just outside of London. He didn’t, however, fully turn his back on sunny weather, having bought a holiday home in Dordogne in southwestern France.
Although he died in 1999 at the age of 70, the “Spartacus,” “A Clockwork Orange” and “2001: A Space Odyssey” director’s wife, Christiane Kubrick, still owns the home in France and has just put it on the market for €1.485 million (US$1.578 million), according to listing agent Christie’s International Real Estate.
Set on 1.2 acres of land in the center of the walled medieval village of Domme, the seven-bedroom, three story limestone main house dates back to the 17th century, but has been recently renovated.
Features of the rustic house include five bathrooms, an inner courtyard, a stone-vaulted cellar, beam-lined ceilings, teal-painted shutters and doorways and a domed stone roof. Outside, there is a large walled garden with a swimming pool, and stunning views over the Dordogne valley. There are also two pigeonnier towers and a separate apartment.
Kubrick’s main home was Childwickbury Manor, a grand house between St. Albans and Harpenden in Hertfordshire, England. He is buried on the grounds of the property alongside his daughter, Anya Kubrick, who died in 2009. Ms. Kubrick still lives there.
