You approach along a long private driveway through the forest and arrive at a grand set of electric gates, these open up into the driveway in front of the property. A grand entrance door opens into the hallway where a hand carved oak staircase immediately takes you eye. The classic hand made floor tiles also lend an air of affluence.
To the left is the formal dining room. Artisan made oak panelling and ceiling detail are perfect partners to the floor to ceiling fireplace taking centre stage, again hand made fleur-de-lys floor tiles and arched main window create an air of grandeur.
Across the hallway is the family sitting room. Oak panelling and carved doors are again throughout here. You have doors onto the garden and a further door through to the current study. This room is of a good size and features a centre piece fireplace at one end.
Also off the lounge is the second entrance hall that leads to the side of the house and across this you will find the kitchen. This is large enough for a table at one end too, although you may wish to upgrade the units.
Also off the second hallway is the utility room.
Back to the main entrance and time to move up to the first floor. The house is separated over four, half floors, so although I will mention four floors it isn’t a true reflection as its was designed with two separate wings.
The first floor is home to 3 well renovated bedrooms, in keeping with the character of the property they are all over 18m2 with built in wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom off to the left here with large bath, twin sinks and separate WC.
On to the 2nd floor where you will find the master suite. A grand bedroom with views to the front of the house over the valley in front and a large en-suite bathroom, with WC and twin sinks too.
On the third floor you have three further bedrooms and another family bathroom. One of the main front bedrooms here has the balcony seen in the main picture with fabulous views to the front. There is also a large attic room that could become a further bedroom of required.
Then to the fourth floor, here you have three rooms in need of renovating but would easily create a further two en-suite bedrooms.
The chateau has been well restored over the first two floors, with only the top floor needing renovation. There are however recent double glazed windows throughout.
After completion of any further work you wished to carry out you would have 9 large bedrooms with en-suite facilities possible in most. So especially good for a luxury bed and breakfast.
The land extends all around the property and measures just over 2 hectares so around 5 acres in total. There is also a small lake to the front of the house.
Under the house you have magnificent vaulted cellars with easy access from the entrance hall. There is also a large outbuilding at the rear of the house. This is a hay loft with two stable boxes set underneath.
If you are looking for a lifestyle change and a magnificent home in France then look no further, although there is some work required you will finish off with a truly wonderful Chateau in France.

Location in France

The Haute-Vienne is still a largely agricultural department located in central France. It is divided into two by the Vienne River, which runs from east to west. In the middle it splits into another river, the Isle, which runs into the bordering department of the Dordogne. The principal industry is porcelain, most of which is manufactured in the departmental capital, Limoges.
The department has a number of natural and man-made lakes, such as the Lac de Vassivière and the Lac de St Mathieu, many of which come complete with beaches, fishing, boating and watersports.
Limoges has produced fine enamel work since the 12th century, and still exports a large number of exquisite luxury goods. It has a lively university and thriving nightlife, as well as an attractive city centre with major shops as well as winding narrow lanes with boutiques and cafés.
Other places of note are Bellac, a small town with just 5,000 inhabitants, which is close to the Lac de St Pardoux, as well as Rochechouart with its magnificent chateau built out of meteoric rock!
Limoges-Bellegard airport, 5 minutes to the West of Limoges, as direct flights to and from the UK, and has had significant investment to cope with passenger numbers. It is also possible to go by TGV to Paris and then onwards to the UK or other European destinations.
As the most accessible department within the Limousin prices in the Haute Vienne are slightly more expensive than the Creuse or the Correze, but bargains can still be found.
