A Bijou Chateau and Guardian’s house in the Charente countryside,
Dating back to the 19th Century, this property oozes elegance and charm, and represents the possibility to acquire a turnkey residence in South West France.
This superbly presented Chateau has been renovated to the highest standard over the past 10 years and the immaculate gardens have been well maintained.
The caretaker’s house is of similar quality and is ideal for guests, relatives or staff.
The Chateau itself has 280 m2 of living space and is set on three levels. There are two bedroom suites on the first floor, both with ensuite bathrooms - as well as dressing rooms/nurseries.
On the ground floor there are two large reception rooms and a modern fitted kitchen. A side door leads to an attractive glassed veranda.
A beautiful solid Elm staircase leads from the central hall way, up to the first floor and then the attic. This large roof space could easily accommodate further bedrooms if required,
The detached guardian’s house is incorporated within a renovated barn to the rear of the Chateau. The large living room (40m2) has exposed stone work and tiled flooring. There are two double bedrooms - both with ensuite shower-rooms.
A useful garage is large enough for two cars and the gardening equipment. The grounds (9000m2) have a selection of unusual trees and plants and large areas of lawn. There is plenty of space to install a pool - a former bread oven and terraced area would make an ideal pool house!
The property is approached via a set of wrought-iron gates, leading to a tree-lined gravelled driveway. A similar gateway at the rear provides access to the garage.
The property is double-glazed throughout and has a recent oil-fired central heating system. The roof has been renewed and the plumbing and electrics have been fully modernised.
Set in a pretty hamlet near Chalais, the Chateau is approximate 5 km from shops, restaurants and bars. Bordeaux airport is around 1 hour 20 minutes’ away and Bergerac airport is approx 1 hour 25 minutes'. There is a TGV station at nearby Angouleme - offering a high speed train to Paris is two hours.
