Outstanding and beautifully restored French chateau dating back to the Fifteenth Century in a village location in the Dordogne with panoramic views, swimming pool and manicured gardens.
This delightful estate, a 'Monument Historique' even counts a hero from the American War of Independence as a former owner. With beautiful stone- buildings set in 10 acres of land, (4 hectares), this property represents a slice of European history.
There are a total of 10 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms offering flexible accommodation for a comfortable family home or a hospitality project.
As an officially listed Chateau, the property has been renovated by professional craftsmen to a very high standard. Former owner Armand Louis de Gontaut, the Duc of Lauzun, fought alongside George Washington at the Siege of Yorktown in 1781.
The Medieval Chateau:
This Chateau includes a drawing room, dining room, kitchen, living room, office and huge wine cellar along with 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
All of the Medieval Chateau has been beautifully restored with well thought-through modern amenities to compliment the original features, such as underfloor heating, high-end bespoke kitchen with modern glazed Gothic arch to the courtyard, hand blown glass windows from the craftsmen of St Gobain and a new roof.
The Renaissance Chateau:
Built in 1570, a new chateau was built consisting of the Great Hall, the King's and Duke's Bedchambers, a parlour and a Chapel.
Today, the Great Hall's scale is no less impressive - at 20m x 10m and boasting two ornate Historical Monument fireplaces, the space is quite remarkable and could be used for many different functions.
The Chapel is now a two-bedroom apartment but could easily be returned to its former glory should the new owner choose to do so.
The New Pavilion:
Built in the 17th century to connect the Medieval and Renaissance Chateaux, this section has various rooms. A professional kitchen to enable event catering, along with storerooms, a huge cellar and staff washrooms sit on the lower level.
On the upper floor there is a library and gymnasium.
Gardens & Outbuildings:
To the south of the chateau is a beautifully kept park with various tree species.
To the western edge of the chateau is a private stone swimming pool (14m x 7m), complete with underground filter room and filtration system.
At the eastern entrance, to the side of one of the great gates to the estate, is a guardian's lodge. This is made up of a sitting room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom and is perfect for staff quarters.
To the southern side of the estate, close to the other commanding gate, is a large two storey barn (23m x 12m), perfect for conversion into further living accommodation or as a potential venue for the perfect French chateau wedding.
A 14m x 12 m barn to the side of this would be an ideal place to house a classic car collection.
All amenities are available in the village, including bars, restaurants and boutiques. The nearest airports are Bergerac (30 minutes) and Bordeaux (1 hour 45 minutes).
