A castle built between the 14th & 19th centuries with outbuildings in a 42 ha estate of woods, wooded moorland and grasslands in the centre of France.
This property is on the edge of the Berry region and the French department of Indre, in discreetly charming countryside, near to a town with some 3,000 inhabitants, classified as being one of the sunniest in France.
It can be reached via the A10 motorway and is ten minutes from a train station with 2-hour links to Paris. Belgium is a five hour drive away via the A77 motorway.
It is possible to glimpse the castle, a chapel and the outbuildings from a tree-lined driveway leading to a small bridge which straddles the river going around the property, intertwined with 8 ha of parklands and gardens. Backing on to the latter are two wash-houses, a river, a garden and an octagonal dovecote covered with a pyramid roof. A swimming pool is to be found in a corner with an unobstructed view over the grasslands, providing privacy for those wishing to take a dip.
The castle comprises two buildings facing different directions, flanked on each side by three roof dormers. A square pavilion stands outside of the carcass in the centre.
Two constructions adjoin either side of the pavilion: one opens on to a terrace, spanning approx. 50 m², with a balustrade; the other is topped with a broken pediment from which emerges an impressive roof dormer.
All of the roofs are covered by a ten year guarantee apart from the candlesnuffer roof on the tower on the swimming pool side which has yet to be done but is nevertheless in a good state of repair.
Approx. 1,300 m² of living space.
The outbuildings on the side have been transformed into a dwelling and accommodation for a caretaker.
The castleBuilt in three stages: at the beginning of the 14th century, redesigned in the 17th century and then partially transformed in the 19th century.
This property was successively handed down to several families.
Carefully renovated by its current owners, the castle spans two levels and a partial cellar with two secondary stairways at each end: one with access on the swimming pool and summer lounge side; the other communicating with the second access leading to a toilet, a kitchen and a pantry.
The main entrance is reached via the courtyard. A vestibule houses a hanging spiral stairway, with wrought iron railings, providing access to both levels. A second, older entrance, located at the back of the castle, opens into a majestic vestibule which houses a white stone stairway, forming an elegant curve looking out over the river and the dovecote.
Miscellaneous rooms are enhanced with 19th century marble fireplaces and wooden panelling.
Floors are covered with geometric patterned tiles as well as herringbone and strip pattern oak wood parquet flooring.
Some old walls, vestiges of the 14th century, have been preserved.
Ground floor
The entrance door opens into a large, high-ceilinged vestibule. This provides access to vast reception rooms: a study decorated with wooden panelling and a central fireplace; a garden lounge is near to a swimming pool and to a wine cellar.
A bar, complete with its oak wood counter added by the owners, welcomes guests and provides access to a dining room and a large kitchen with a pantry. The latter were renovated using noble materials. A marvellous chest-high fireplace is ideal for cooking over a wood fire. In one corner, a larder is located in the sole tower.
This level features numerous openings on both facades.
