This beautiful Château is in a lovely location on the outskirts of a small quiet village, with a shop/café within walking distance.
Originally built in the 16th Century, the Château consists of two wings. Unfortunately, one wing was burnt to the ground in a war between Protestants and Catholics some 200 years ago but was sympathetically rebuilt in 1820. The vendors have the complete history of the Château back to 1509.
There are approx 5.9 hectares (14.57 acres) of land, including formal gardens, paddocks (suitable for horses, cattle, sheep etc), there is also another piece of land which would be ideal for a riding arena if equestrian pursuits are of interest to you (or use as an additional paddock). There is currently no swimming pool but there are numerous places where a pool could be installed if required.
There are also a wide range of outbuildings, including a stable block with hay loft, 2 kennels, large greenhouse, gardener's cottage, garage, hangar, & very large workshop, plus a purpose built vegetable garden with full watering system.
The large caves (cellars) under the property still contain the original cider barrels from when the property was run as a successful Cider producing Château some years ago. These would be ideally used as large wine cellars, or for extra storage.
All of the original features remain intact, these include the oak wooden floors throughout the property, fireplaces in all main reception rooms and bedrooms (huge inglenook fireplace in kitchen), period wood panelled walls & oak staircase. The original stone food warmer and stone sink remain in the kitchen.
The property has mains electric, mains water, and central heating.
The Château is situated on a quiet country lane, a short walk to the small village with shop/cafe, and only a 10 min drive to two large towns, that offer a wide range of amenities, including supermarkets, DIY shops, Restaurants & Bars, garden centre and typical French Markets.
