Property Description

This wonderful historic château is situated in the wild and beautiful département of Aveyron in South West France. It is in countryside close to a small market town, and has been lovingly and tastefully restored by its current owners, having previously been in the hands of one family for some seven centuries.

Parts of the château are medieval in origin, and parts date from later additions and renovations in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The architecture is superb, and the buildings all appear to be in excellent repair.

It is a property that would lend itself to use either as a substantial family home or for commercial exploitation. At present two floors of the château and the farmhouse are used for habitation, leaving a further floor in both buildings, plus several outbuildings, all or part of which could easily be converted to create additional living space. It therefore has plenty of further potential.

The grounds have also gone through a renaissance recently, with much planting of trees and shrubs, plus the addition of a large swimming pool (16 x 5m), discreetly screened by a laurel hedge. Mature trees have also been kept to give the grounds the feel of a well-maintained park as befits such a property.

The château and farmhouse form two sides of a large gravelled courtyard, the two buildings being separated by a castellated wall, with a doorway through to the park behind. There are also numerous outbuildings, including stables, granaries and an open garage and other outbuildings attached to the farmhouse, providing conversion or expansion potential. There is also a separate barn to the rear.

Currently the south tower is used as the main entrance to the château, this having a magnificent stone spiral staircase connecting the floors. On the ground floor level, you have an old kitchen, which is no longer inhabited but used as a boiler and boot room. However it still has the old fireplace, and a sink with the original water pump, and it looks onto the courtyard. It has recently been fitted with new twin oil-fired boilers, plus the oil storage tank. This system feeds radiators on the first and second floors, and could be extended to the currently unused third floor if required.

There is a wonderful circular wine cellar in the base of one of the towers, plus two other large unused cellars, both clean and dry and with plenty of ceiling height.
