A bathroom from a chateau for sale, Dordogne / Charente borders



You may have seen some of the marketing material out there already about this property – ignore any preconceptions you may have! Set at the heart of this magnificent 52 hectare (130 acre) esate stands a truly regal chateau with a tremendous depth of character. Boasting 10 luxurious bedrooms, all ensuite, and a wealth of magnificent reception rooms, this property would equally suit a private residence as four-star hotel. But it is the extensive range of buildings and the setting that really lend itself to numerous possibilities. Additional habitable dwellings that are fully renovated include an owner’s cottage with three bedrooms that would easily split to two independent units; and two one-bedroomed cottages for staff. The original coach house and stable block has been part-renovated, with full architect’s drawings and planning permission for an Annex of 13 bedrooms, all ensuite, with business conference facilities and a number of large storage rooms (a ‘blank canvass’), and an enormous barn that would convert to a stunning indoor pool and gym / fitness suite. Additional buildings include a Victorian conservatory, an orangery and potting shed – all providing potential for charming renovation.
Running close to the buildings and through the property is a leat and derelict fish-trap – providing scope for water features and potentially hydro-electric power. Although no permission has  been sought, plans also exist for a wonderful 18-hole golf course surrounding the chateau. A rare find – with an exciting range of possibilities.

GUARDIAN'S COTTAGE   3 bedrooms, 246 sqm
The Guardian's cottage is discreetly located to the side of the chateau, and has been fully renovated recently. It has been cleverly designed to be split into two self-contained units with ease.

The barn is enromous and is currently undevelopped. I t would make a stunning indoor swimming pool & gym / health suite - but is just as charming left as is!

LAND & SETTING   52 ha (130 acres)
The property is set in the middle of its land - an extensive estate of 52 hectares (130 acres), that includes formal garden, meadow and woods. It is bordered on one side by a charming river, and has a leat running through the middle, passing very close to the buildings, originally built to serve as fish trap.. Whether to feed water features or power a small hydro plant, the leat has many possibilities.
