A chateau typical of the Lauragais Country and its farmhouse on a hilltop to the south of Toulouse.
This residence, just 20 minutes from Toulouse (international airport and TGV train station), stands in the Lauragais Country, on gentle hills reminiscent of Tuscany, near to a small bustling village and to a traditional, long farmhouse on a lower level. Bordered by a little secondary road, it is concealed from onlookers by tall trees, low walls and hedges. Shops, schools and a market selling local organic produce are less than 3 km away.
Turning off the secondary road, a gravel drive leads to large metal gates. This residence, enclosed by walls and high hedges, is set in the middle of a wooded garden, with its large lawn and water-well. It takes the shape of a long rectangle, under a gable roof covered with Roman tiles, flanked by a battlemented tower and a look-out tower, with a candlesnuffer roof, connected to one another via a wall-walk and a belvedere. Its neo-Romanesque style porch is looked down on by a tiled terrace on the north side, a large terrace and its pergola on the garden side. This chateau, with its 25 rooms, including 10 bedrooms, spans 800 m² over three levels. The outbuildings adjoin its ends and communicate with the building: to the west, a large building where harvests were once stored, with machicolation and little openings; to the east, a small house built over a cellar, awaiting renovation. The grounds, spanning approx. 1 ha, vary between the level area in front of the main entrance and a large lawn with its water-well on the terrace side; an old farmhouse concealed behind a copse set alongside the second access driveway in the centre of the property; a small uncultivated meadow, with some little oak and a few olive trees, is outside of the walls and bordered by both access driveways.
The siteIn the 16th century, the golden age of pastel, the entire region became covered in chateaux, mostly constructed from red terracotta bricks, an external sign of wealth, since these earthen bricks had to be fired numerous times before they could be used for construction purposes. In 1560, a famous “capitoul”, an elected magistrate and head of Toulouse’s Parliamentary Court, constructed a stronghold house along the hilltop road, with battlements and cross-shaped arrow-loops taken from defensive architecture. It was extended in the 19th century in the neo-Romanesque style with a battlemented tower, machicolation, a terrace bordered with Tuscan style columns and an elegant porch with two oculi, pear-shaped balusters and columns with high-relief decoration. In the 21st century, the current owners renovated it from top to bottom and installed modern-day home comforts, whilst preserving its original features.The main buildingThis is without doubt the original building constructed in 1560 which has undergone several external enhancements in the 19th century and general renovation works at the beginning of the 21st century. The 3.50 m high ceilings with their boxed beams, the vestibule featuring vaults and columns, the fireplaces and the floors are all outstanding.
Ground floor
On the north side, under the semi-circular arched, neo-Romanesque porch and protected by cast iron gates, old double wooden doors with iron fittings open into a vestibule, featuring lancet arched vaults, plain brick columns and terracotta floor tiles. A corridor, running from north to south through the building to the terrace on the garden side, leads to a large lounge. It also houses a painted wood stairway featuring square-based, pear-shaped balusters. A corridor gives access to a study and a laundry room. A glazed, service door on the north facade opens into a vast, fully fitted, through kitchen, housing a metal stairway that goes up …
