Superb 6 bedrooms medieval fortified manor with hobby vineyard near Saint-Emilion
This turn-key property is very well situated close to St Emilion and many local amenities. It is well-presented and maintained and is a perfect large family home.
Built during the period of the Hundred Years' War, the Castle takes its name from a noble family that settled in the region in the 16th century, there is some evidence that it was built on an earlier date, between the middle of the 14th century and completed 15th century.
The Château has been carefully restored with the help of an architect of the preservation organisation called " Batiments de France" by the current owners. This restoration has preserved many period features such as the original fireplaces, a beautiful spiral stone staircase, wooden floors and beamed ceilings.
The Château has a small winery, so a future buyer could continue this wine making business, which is more or less a non-profit activity, or exploit it more for a more substantial income. The Chateau has a registered trademark for the wine and further brands can be created if so wished.
The Château has been completely restored with good taste and attention to detail, high-quality finish and excellent layout making it a turn-key property.
