97994HM16 - A very special chateau logis which has been and continues to be extensively and lovingly restored by the present owner, keeping as well as enhancing the original features, of which there are dozens. Close to shops and local facilities, this property is awash with local history and folklore, and really needs to be viewed to fully appreciate what is on offer. A large property which can only be briefly described in this space, so here is a brief walk-through. - The front entrance leads to a grand, main reception hall with wide, curving original staircase, and doors leading to the large lounge and grand dining room.
The large lounge has a contemporary tiled floor, feature fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed Stone walls and windows to the front offering views of the courtyard and lake, and windows to the rear overlooking the garden.
The grand, fully wood-panelled dining room has a delightful "Coeur de moiselle" floor and a lovely stone fireplace, with windows overlooking the courtyard and on to the lake. From the dining room is a doorway leading to the kitchen, which also has its own separate entrance from the front of the building.
The huge 66m2 medieval kitchen is light and airy and boasts a beautiful stone tiled floor, original fireplace and ample fitted cupboards and storage. There is a staircase leading to the vaulted cellar and another doorway to the rear entrance hall, exterior access and to the boot room, situated at the foot of the tower.
Upstairs there are 6 large bedrooms all presented in keeping with typical 15th century French styling; each with wood panelling, ornate plasterwork, feature fireplaces and lovely wooden floors. Two of the bedrooms currently offer "en-suite" bathrooms and one, The Marquis' Room, provides for additional ante-room accommodation, such as dressing room or office facilities, leading directly from it. There is also a large, luxurious family bathroom and there are 3 attics above, which could be converted to create additional rooms or space for a variety of uses.
Facing the main house, across the courtyard, there is a row of outbuildings, featuring an amazing, historical Iron Forge. Currently used for storage and parking, these buildings provide great opportunity for further development should the new occupiers so wish. Behind the Forge is an old water mill, for which plans were available for renovation and installation of an electricity generator; there is already a spring well which feeds water to a reserve - all of which provide self-sufficiency opportunities if approved. Adjoining the Chateau is a large barn, which has been converted into a stylish 2 bedroom family house.
To the front of the converted barn is a lovely patio area for "al-fresco" dining, with great views overlooking the lake and surrounding land. Above the 2 bedroom house there is a large attic with extensive additional space, which could be converted to a further 8 rooms at least, and with its adjoining access to the main chateau, this space offers exceptional potential to the new owners.
The Chateau has its own large, impressive lake of approximately 3 hectares which creates a major visual feature. There is approximately an additional 4 hectares of land attached to the property, mainly pasture and woodland as well as a lovely river - all providing privacy and beautiful views from all aspects of the house. There are also a number of additional outbuildings which can be used for storage or potentially converted to use as types of accommodation to add further value to the overall package.
