Property Description


The estate comprises the chateau, a substantial guesthouse and a freestanding pigeonnier all entirely renovated to a very high standard in the last 10 years while retaining many original features. The main elevations were reworked in the late 18th century with multiple windows and a triple 'genoise' eaves detail, giving the chateau a classical appearance. A stone staircase in the hexagonal tower of the chateau is an extraordinary feature linking all three floors, with a gentle rise and lit by windows at every level. Reception rooms are on ground and first floor level, with 5 well-proportioned bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor and a fascinating belvedere at the top of the tower. There is a high degree of insulation throughout with double-glazed windows and heating by heat pump.



Entertaining terraces link with a spectacular 15m infinity pool and mature parkland with a fine collection of centenarian cedar trees, oaks, ash and other indigenous species. Watering system for formal gardens. Further young woodland and pasture. 3.8 hectares in all.



Separated by a formal garden is a second stone building with round tower, now transformed into a guesthouse with 5 suites with reception areas including a vast, double-height party room of 85 m². Adjoining outbuildings, with workshop, storage space and garages.



A pigeonnier, with four symmetrical arches at its base, has been fitted out on its two levels. The countryside falls away to the south with magnificent views to the distant Pyrenees. All buildings on the estate are in a delightful pale limestone.



Outside

Large East-facing breakfast terrace in travertine paving overlooking the grounds.



Infinity swimming pool, 15x6m approx., with 'balneo' area, roman steps and fountain features. Heating by heat pump. Extensive paved entertaining terrace.

Outbuildings, approx 150 m², with workshop, storage space and lock up garages.
