Delightful Nineteenth Century chateau in Benon, not far from La Rochelle it once served as the country retreat of the Delmas family, esteemed ship owners from La Rochelle.

Nestled discreetly amidst verdant surroundings, a tree-lined path leads you to the impressive manor house, with a caretaker's lodge set in over 13 acres of land with meticulously manicured English-style gardens, tranquil ponds and winding canals. At a distance from the main residence, a charming swimming pool with sun terrace invites relaxation in a picturesque setting.

The 1860 residence comes with a tangible romantic allure. While its size and slate roofs classify it as a chateau, its layout, timbering, and facades evoke the charm of cottage-style villas.
The mansion boasts two primary fronts. Careful restoration ensures the manor retains its illustrious history and authenticity.

On the ground floor, a hallway leads to two luminous reception rooms, offering captivating views of the parklands through ample windows, transitioning to a grand dining area overlooking the ponds and rear grounds. Across the hall, a cosy salon is bathed in natural light providing panoramic views of the countryside from its petite terrace enclosed by a semi-circular natural stone balustrade. This leads to an elegant bedroom with a bathtub at the foot of the bed and a shower room within one of the turrets.
Ascending a majestic original staircase, the expansive first-floor landing leads to four spacious bedrooms, each elegantly appointed with its own en-suite bathroom, exuding individual charm with clawfoot tubs and sweeping park views.

Further ascent to the second floor reveals two more splendid en-suite bedrooms, beautifully decorated and and commanding uninterrupted views of the surroundings.
A third bedroom, currently undergoing transformation in the former attic, is flanked by a turret undergoing restoration.

The lower level of the manor, accessible independently from the grounds, houses storage cellars, a fully-equipped kitchen ideal for grand receptions, and a scullery opening onto a spacious living area with original flooring.

The property includes a substantial and appealling stone-built caretaker's lodge, comprising a living area, fitted kitchen, and refurbished shower room. An internal staircase ascends to a spacious through-bedroom with dressing facilities, alongside a second bedroom and study above the tower.
Adjacent to the caretaker's lodge stands an annex, presently utilized as a workshop but originally serving as stables, offering undeniable potential for conversion, seamlessly complementing this unique property.

Reflecting the hallmark features of a 19th-century residence, from meticulously maintained original parquet floors to marble fireplaces, double French windows, whitewashed walls, and ornate mouldings, the entire edifice epitomizes timeless elegance.
Renovated in harmony with its heritage, it is ideally suited for a family residence yet equally poised for commercial utilization as a luxurious bed and breakfast.
The estate enjoys privacy without isolation
