Property Description

Summary
Step into a piece of history with modern comforts in the west wing of the prestigious Chateau du Vigeant. This discreetly luxurious property offers the benefits of living in a French chateau without the upkeep costs typically associated with such estates.

Location
The property is conveniently located 5-7 minutes from L’Isle Jourdain, a thriving village on the banks of the Vienne River with local shops, a supermarket, restaurants, and an old railway line perfect for walking and cycling. The nearby Vienne River offers two reservoirs ideal for angling, kayaking, and zip-lining, along with stunning scenery and a wide range of regional tourist amenities.

Access
Poitiers and Limoges airports are just an hour's drive away, and Bordeaux Airport is 2½ hours away. The TGV from Poitiers to Paris takes as little as 1 hour and 25 minutes, making this an ideal choice for a permanent residence or a holiday home.

Interior
Timeless Charm Meets Modern Comfort
-------------------------------------------
Enjoy the ambiance of a historic chateau, fully modernized and renovated to a high standard. The interiors feature beautiful exposed stone walls, blending old-world charm with contemporary elegance. With a spacious and sunny layout of approximately 108 sqm (1150sqft), the main living space (~60sqm) boasts Wi-Fi controlled underfloor heating. The open-plan kitchen, dining, and living space is south-facing, making the most of the sunshine and creating a bright and welcoming environment.

The versatile living spaces include an entrance room, one bedroom, one bathroom, an open-plan office, and a kitchen/living/dining area. The second bedroom, currently used as a study, offers additional flexibility. This thoughtful design is ideal for couples, small families, or professionals seeking a unique living environment with historical charm and modern amenities.

With ~1.5 meter thick stone walls, the property ensures cool interiors in summer and warmth in winter, complemented by double glazing and insulation throughout. A strong Internet connection makes it suitable for home or remote working, with fibre optic arriving in the near future. For security and peace of mind, the property is equipped with a comprehensive CCTV and security system.

Exterior
Tranquil Outdoor Space
---------------------------
Step outside to enjoy expansive gardens and multiple terraces totaling ~5600 sqm (1.4 acres). The gardens include a patch perfect for growing your own vegetables and mature fruit trees, creating a lush, productive outdoor space.

The property is accessed by a private 90-metre long driveway which approaches the side of the house (and the end of the chateau). It’s a discrete and unassuming entrance which enhances your privacy, with tall walls at the front that ensure there is nothing to draw unwanted attention from the roadside.

The property features a versatile 40 sqm outbuilding divided into four separate spaces, including a spacious 24 sqm room currently used as a workshop, a Finnish sauna, and two additional rooms. This building has potential for conversion into a gîte or a garage. Additionally, there is a separate shed.

Additional Details
Move-In Ready
-----------------

The property can be left fully furnished, allowing you to simply bring your bags and start enjoying your new home immediately, with no additional work required unless you choose to convert the garage. The house has a welcoming atmosphere and friendly neighbours who own the remainder of the chateau next door.

Rich History
--------------
Chateau du Vigeant is steeped in history, bearing the noble legacy of the Poussart family. François Poussart, the original Seigneur du Fors et Baron du Vigean connected their lineage with prominent figures of the era, including the Duchess of Aiguillon and Prince Condé. The chateau witnessed the valor of François-Louis-Jules Poussart, who served under Louis II de Bourbon-Condé and tragically lost his life in 1663. The legacy was carried forward by Armand-Jean Poussart, Marquis du Vigeant, who made the chateau his home from 1686 until 1731. This residence not only offers a luxurious living experience but also a chance to be part of a storied past.

Priced at €251,000 (excluding notaire fees) we warmly invite interested buyers to explore this opportunity. To maintain the privacy and exclusivity of this offering, we kindly request direct inquiries only (no estate agents please).
