Ref.4165: Elegant 19th Century chateau for sale in the vendean bocage.
The property is situated in the Vendée bocage, close to the Gâtine, on the borders of the Deux-Sèvres. The bocage is made up of hedges, copses, rivers, meadows, fields and small villages. The nearest village is 3 km away, and offers all local services, including a mini-market, doctor and chemist, as well as two primary schools (state and private). Colleges and lycées are a 10-minute drive away.
This part of the Vendée is particularly well known for its history and tourist attractions. The sea is around 90 km away.
At the beginning of the 15th century, a fiefdom which depended on the lordship of Parthenay existed on the site of the current château.
In 1860, a Justice of the Peace, Frédéric Naud, commissioned a château from the very fashionable architect Paul Joseph Guillerot, who had designed many châteaux in the Vendée. Mr Naud had become mayor of the Commune.
The building was planned in an existing clearing, high up, with a beautiful view over the surrounding countryside.
The entrance facade was soberly designed, while the other side, which had no door, was enlivened by the play of projections created by the small square pavilions.
Around 1905, a veranda with a roof terrace accessible via a bedroom was added.
Inside, a clever layout of glazed French windows around the entrance hall provides plenty of light and views of the lovely countryside outside.
The château, which spans more than 300 sqm, has been partly renovated and is very light and airy. It has a serene atmosphere.
This chateau is the ideal property for those who love the countryside. It's also the perfect place for a family or to welcome guests.
The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, a study, a dining room (26 sqm), a lounge (30sqm), a kitchen (24sqm), a boiler room, a shower room with toilet and a conservatory awaiting renovation.
A beautiful wooden staircase leads to the upper floors.
Upstairs, the landing leads to 5 bedrooms, a bathroom and a toilet. One of the bedrooms has access to the roof terrace of the former greenhouse, from where there is a very pleasant view over the parklands.
A large attic (100sqm) could be converted.
There is also a partial cellar.
The outbuildings include:
New wooden stables, 5 boxes
Shed (fodder storage)
Greenhouse to restore
Leanto to restore
The parklands cover almost 17,30 acres, with no close neighbours. A beautiful driveway winds through a wooded area to reach the château, which is set in a dominant position and enjoys lovely views over the countryside. Centuries-old trees surround the château, including a superb purple beech, a sequoia and a plane tree.
Meadows are available for animals.
