A delightful C19th chateau and domaine, set in a haven of green countryside which offers the opportunity of a large family home or hospitality project. Located near Bergerac in the Dordogne, France.
In superb condition, the Chateau retains a wealth of period features, including large stone fireplaces, tapestries and original timber flooring.
And additional outbuildings provide ample space to increase the level of accommodation within the grounds.
Principal Chateau - 623m2
Set on four floors, the main residence, built in 1884, has 9 bedroom suites (all with ensuite shower-rooms), which have been renovated to the highest standard.
The ground floor has three large reception rooms, with lounge, dining room and billiard room. The reception hallway features a superb timber staircase, tapestries and fabric-lined walls.
The cellar level provides a semi-professional eat-in kitchen, wine cellar and storage areas.
Farmhouse - With over 350m2 of living space, this expansive building needs modernisation and could accommodate at least four further bedrooms.
Stables - Currently used as a garage and storage area, this building is approx 165m2. With stalls for four horses, it could be brought back to its former glory as a carriage house. Or again, could provide further accommodation to enhance the estate.
Grounds - Covering just over 9 hectares (22 acres) the grounds are a mixture of lawn, pasture and woodland. There is a superb 11m x 3m pool near the Chateau, with pool house and former orangery.
