An impressive Château from the 19th Century, surrounded on all sides by its own grounds and gardens, approached through double gates and down a tree lined driveway, which gradually opens up to reveal the full extent of the Château – though the front of the Château is of a traditionally grand design, it is at the same time most welcoming.
Once entering into the Château, either into the main entrance hallway or into the gallery, it is immediately apparent that the ground floor layout was planned for entertaining, with each main room essentially having its own entrance whilst interconnecting with the next room in a most obvious way – the gallery and hallway lead into a large living room and the billiard/drawing room to the west (as well as into what was the library and now an office), whilst to the east to the main dining room areas and onto the breakfast room and the kitchens. The gallery, the living room and the rear dining area also open out onto outside terraces, again very useful for entertaining, but of course also for just relaxing and taking in the beautiful gardens and overall quiet countryside setting. The upper two floors are accessed by a wonderful winding timber staircase – on the first floor, there are seven bedrooms of which five have ensuites, but the layout of the first floor could, without much alteration, be used as three or four bedroom junior suites, but still providing large bedrooms with sitting and dressing rooms – on the second floor, there are a further seven bedrooms which more or less repeat the layout on the first floor. From the front bedroom to the east wing, there is also a splendid decked roof terrace, which allows the opportunity to survey from above all that could be yours !
Interestingly, the majority if not all of the east wing, with its own separate staircase accessed off the kitchens, could fairly easily be self-contained, perhaps as the housekeeper’s or a manager’s accommodation.
The cellars, which run more or less to the full extent of the Château, house the heating and hot water systems which include extremely economical air source heat pumps as an option to the oil-fired boiler – the cellars can be accessed internally or externally as you would expect and of course also provide more than adequate storage areas.
The grounds and gardens are equally as impressive as the Château, providing the exceptional setting, featuring a wide variety of impressive and well maintained trees, most probably planted as part of the original design and landscape of the Château, including walnut and fruit trees. Within the grounds is a generously sized salt-water swimming pool with its own pool house. There are also two outbuildings to the east, but to the west is a unique family Chapel still with its own altar, pews, religious plaques and icons, and importantly, and it would seem, the original ‘church bell’.
This Château whilst currently used as a family home, could provide other opportunities for an investor as a wedding and conference venue and or as a ‘boutique hotel’, as whilst hidden away within the stunning countryside of the Vienne, the Château is close enough to main link roads to both Limoges and Bellegarde Airport, as well as Poitiers TGV from Paris.
Of course this Château as any other needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated and our photos really do not do this property justice !
