An 18th century chateau, with its partially renovated outbuildings, an enclosed farmyard, a lake and a swimming pool, in 2 ha of fenced parklands in Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park in Green Périgord.
Crossed by numerous streams and dotted with lakes of all sizes, this part of Green Périgord comprises naturally wooded and undulating surroundings where farming takes pride of place without being invasive.
This property, about an hour from Limoges airport and 45 minutes from Angoulême TGV train station, is near to Nontron, the department’s sub-prefecture and a town renowned for its first-class arts and crafts industries, supported by international companies dealing in leather goods, cutlery, saddlery and tableware. It is also home to an experimental centre for arts and crafts, grouping Nontron’s craftsmen and artists.
This estate, near to a listed Romanesque church with several houses clustered around it, is enclosed to the north by a stone wall, with one-sided tiled coping, which borders a little secondary road. This chateau, standing on a lower level in shady parklands with protective entrance gates, can be reached on the east side via a little lane which crosses an orchard, also enclosed. It comprises 3 types of apple, pear, walnut and quince trees as well as an old, stone and wrought iron enclosure for hunting dogs.
This impressive building is set at the southern end of a terrace and dominates a meadow and a fish-filled lake. Beyond, woods and a stream delimit the boundaries of this property, spanning approx. 2 ha.
This chateau can be reached from the west side, but in order to do so residents have to cross a vast, fully enclosed rectangular farmyard, formed by outbuildings. A gateway set between a cowshed and a barn opens into the farmyard. In its centre is a well fed by a spring, three ponds used as drinking troughs and trees providing shade. Buildings of all shapes and sizes are set out on all sides. These comprise two renovated houses, two others awaiting renovation, a garage housing a boat, ideal for fishing in the lake, a room housing rabbit hutches, two covered areas, one of which is topped with an attic that can be reached from the road, two barns with mezzanines and a vast cowshed with a hayloft. At the other end facing the gates, a porch way set in a narrow pavilion, topped with a dovecote and closed by wrought iron gates, provides access to the parklands.
Here, on the left-hand side, in a northerly direction, a few steps lead to a completely enclosed terrace, used as a swimming area. Following on from the perimeter wall, two old, L-shaped, fully renovated outbuildings house a pool-house and storage areas on the ground floor with an open eating area overlooking the swimming pool upstairs.
The chateauThe actual residence was constructed in the 18th century on the site of a primitive building, all that remains of which are the magnificent vaulted cellars. This rectangular building spans two levels and an attic floor under a steep hip roof covered in tiles. The walls are thick and the roofing framework sound and robust.
The studded, wooden, arched entrance door, on the north facade facing the parklands, is rustic. It is topped with a little recess containing a bust of general and politician Maximilien-Foy (1775-1825). This facade features large windows, four on the ground floor and five upstairs, the middle one being above the entrance.
On the south side, the central bay upstairs is replaced by two small openings under the roof, which illuminate the access to the maids’ bedrooms and the attic space, and by two tall, narrow roof dormers with stained glass that let tinted light in on to the interior stone stairway. Two ground floor French windows open on to the terrace.
All the door and window frames are new, double-glazed and made-to-measure, with old-fashioned locks.
The floors, laid …
