Property Description

Take a deep breath and look at this magnificent building which dates from the early 1800s. It is a blank canvas that the next owner can take on board and create something exquisite and even more breathtaking. Located in its own park, 5 hectares, lawns, woods, shrubs and fruit trees bordering the Charente and the Dordogne. The property is a peripheral building originally belonging to the Château de La Rochebeaucourt; a historic castle built in the 16th century by the de Villebois family, then demolished and rebuilt between 1853 and 1859 under the authority of Napoleon III, then Emperor of France. The castle and its outbuildings were requisitioned by the Germans during World War II, and the original castle was burnt down on February 5, 1941. It is believed that this property was originally a stable block that also housed an officer garrison in the late 19th century and experienced many reincarnations before the current owners purchased it in 2004, detached house and school. . In 1999, much of the roof was destroyed by nearby trees and very strong winds. In 2004, the complete roof was replaced and repaired the existing damage. There is a small caretaker's house with one bedroom, kitchen and bathroom and with access to the main building. The property was completely emptied on both levels, dismantling the majority of the dormitories, and then the first construction work began in the right wing. There are also two very large barns, on either side of the property. One with the roof in poor condition. Pictures are not enough, you have to see this in real life to appreciate the potential that is offered here. It is not for the faint of heart, it is for anyone who has the means, the determination, the budget and the imagination to take this Domain to the next level. It would make a great hotel, wedding venue, high end apartment complex, and much more. If you think this is you, call us now and come check it out!
