The Chateau is steeped in history and has its origins dating back as far as the C12th. It has been lovingly restored over the last 20 years and the owners have carefully preserved many architectural features, including exposed stone walls, magnificent fireplaces and oak beamed ceilings.
A magnificent barn has been converted into three guest apartments, making very successful letting units. An infinity swimming pool overlooks the parkland and woods.
You will immediately be impressed as you enter via wrought iron gates and approach this exceptional estate via an avenue of 200 year old plane trees, planted by one of Napoleons generals, before entering the walled courtyard.
To the south side is the chateau and to the north is the beautiful barn.
On the ground floor you will discover a large central hall 45m² that is spacious enough to use as a dining room, a big large fitted kitchen 41m² with a monumental fireplace and old stone sink. The dining area of the kitchen can accommodate up to 20 people, and the spacious living room 50m² has a beautiful fireplace. All rooms have superb tiled floors.
A beautiful spiral staircase in the C12th tower takes you to the first floor where there are 4 spacious bedrooms, all with old oak flooring, (3 have a fireplace). The master bedroom 37m² has a small round tower, fireplace and bathroom en-suite (bath, shower, basin, bidet and WC). There is a further large family bathroom (also with bath, shower, basin, bidet and WC).
On the second floor there are a further 4 large bedrooms, (again, 3 with fireplaces), and 2 spacious bathrooms, (each having a bath, shower, basin, bidet and WC). The top floor with its cathedral style ceiling shows off the magnificent oak roof construction. This space is divided into a living room 60m² and the other 90m² is an artists studio.
On the north side lies the extremely beautiful barn building (150m² floorspace), with on the ground floor a laundry room, wine cave, a games room (also used for winter storage), the boiler room (oil central heating), and a garage for 3 cars.
On the south side of this building an impressive double stone staircase leads you to the first floor, where there are 3 totally independent 60m² apartments. Each apartment contains an open plan 31m² lounge/dining/kitchen area with cathedral type ceiling, a 16m² double bedroom and bathroom with bath, basin and WC. A wooden staircase leads to the attic with space for a further double bedroom. Each one of these apartments provides charming accommodation for friends and / or paying guests. There is a second barn of around 90m² with its original bread oven.
Outside, a 12 x 6 pool is situated to the west of the chateau and enjoys views over beautiful, unspoilt countryside. The whole estate covers over 4 ha of attractive parkland. The gardens have been meticulously maintained and include lawns, many mature specimen trees with shaded and open areas. (The hazelnut trees are even used to produce nut oil).
It is rare to fins such a wonderful estate located close to the River Dordogne. The property is close to the borders three of the most beautiful departments in France, the Correze, Lot and Dordogne, and they actually fall into 3 different regions. It is within walking distance of a beautiful old market town on the River Dordogne, and is just 45 minutes from Brive and its new airport.
