An imposing 15 bedroom chateau in a private elevated setting with south facing far reaching countryside views to the front aspect. There is enormous potential for development of this stunning chateau, it would be perfect as a wedding venue! An extraordinary project, with plenty of history, for anyone wanting to escape to the countryside and enjoy life in rural France.
Along with the chateau is a 4 bedroom Manor House with adjoining 2 bedroom cottage. Two large detached barns and ancient stables. Read more ...

Part of the roof was replaced along with the zinc work (the tower and the witches hat). The guttering and downpipes were also replaced. The chateau roof to the front aspect seems in good condition, the wood structure is in excellent condition however there are a couple of leaks to the rear aspect that require attention. Electrics, plumbing, heating and waste disposal will require updating. The chateau is accessed via a long entrance road of 1km which solely serves the chateau and the estate, there is an individual private driveway which reaches the chateau grounds . There is no passing traffic but there will be a couple of distant neighbours who also live on the estate. GROUND FLOOR principle rooms Entrance 17m2 with flagstone floor and stone staircase to 1st floor Kitchen 32m2 Dining room 48m2 (French doors to front aspect) Library 46m2 (French doors to front aspect) Salon 72m2 with oak panelling and stone fireplace (French doors to front aspect) Tower room 38m2 (dual aspect, door to en-suite) There are various other rooms to the rear aspect of the chateau, areas previously used by the staff at the chateau, including an office, laundry and bathroom FIRST FLOOR There are 7 large bedrooms most with basins or en-suite facilities. SECOND FLOOR There are a series of smaller bedrooms (originally staff quarters and nursery) and there is a vast attic and access in to the roof.

The Manor House benefits from recent gas central heating and has two open fireplaces. There is water and electricity in place and a recent smart meter. The septic tank does not conform to current regulations. The manor is completely habitable, the en-suite and family bathroom are recent. It would benefit from a new kitchen. There is enormous potential for this Manor House to extend the habitable space by another 280m2. The cottage has an insert wood burner in the living room, there is water and electricity at the property, the electrics will require a professional to make sure all is safe.
