A 19th century country house, its outbuilding with its butler’s lodgings and its 9,000 m² of wooded parklands in a Charente-Tuscany village.
In the midst of the Angoulême - Bordeaux - Périgueux triangle, where the borders of the French departments of Charente-Maritime and Dordogne meet. The region is known as the Charente-Tuscany because of its undulating landscapes covered with pine and oak woods as well as fields of wheat, maize and sunflowers. This property stands on the outskirts of one of the many villages in the south of the Charente department, near to Chalais, a town with less than 2,000 inhabitants (all shops and a castle where the Prince of Talleyrand-Périgord grew up), not far from the Knights Templars chapel in Cressac, known for its 12th century fresco, the biggest in the world. In the midst of a region renowned for its French gastronomy: Cognac, Pineau, strawberries, melons, foie-gras, Barbezieux chicken, truffles, king boletes, Chalais veal, etc.
This residence can be accessed either from the south, coming from the centre of the village, or from the north, coming from the countryside.
From the south, with the church behind them, visitors can access the property almost immediately. Gates, set between large, white, limestone pillars, open on to the parklands that extend as far as the white limestone balustrade, bordering this side of the house.
From the north and the countryside, gates made in the old-fashioned manner without welding stand between the rear of the house and the outbuilding.
The fencing between these two entrances is bordered by a laurel hedge which conceals the ornamental parklands. Only tall cedar trees can be glimpsed.
A stone balustrade adorns the front of the building. The small chateau faces south over the parklands. The outbuilding stands behind and parallel to the main house.
The country houseThe little chateau, spanning two levels under attic space, comprises a central rectangular building. Its low, hip roof is covered with slate and features a roof dormer on the south side. Two protruding square towers, one at each end, feature pointed, slate roofs and a roof dormer. A veranda, reminiscent of a greenhouse, adjoins the west tower. The main entrance is set in the centre. It is also possible to access the building via the west tower.
All the openings and the three roof dormers are framed with a white dressed stone known as “shellstone” because of the multitude of small inlaid shells dating from the time when the ocean still covered the entire region.
The house spans a total of 240 m² of living space.
Ground floor
The central entrance door opens into a vestibule, housing an elm wood, turning stairway, behind which a door leads to the rear of the building. The tone is set: the railings on the door are made from riveted iron, the floor is covered with terracotta tiles with inlaid wooden decoration. Two adjoining rooms are laid out on either side. On one side, a dining room, with its fireplace typical of the region, its ceiling featuring white rafters and its wooden flooring. On the right of the fireplace, a door gives access to the veranda via a small room in use as a boiler room. Another door, on the left of the hearth, opens into a kitchen laid out in the west tower. Its work surfaces are made of marble and its old floor tiles have been preserved. The entrance vestibule also provides access to a large lounge, its walls lined with fine panelling. It adjoins a small lounge, laid out in the east tower.
First floor
Two flats have been created on either side of the stairway. Each side comprises a bedroom, with its Versace tiled shower room and its toilet, followed by a little lounge laid out in each tower. All the rooms on the south side look out over the parklands and the village bell-tower.
This attic space could be converted and …
