Totally refurbished and in immaculate condition throughout, this superb 10 bedroom Chateau is ideally located in a quiet and private setting just 10 minutes from the historical city of Limoges.
This stunning Chateau, which has been beautifully renovated with passion, style and taste, is truly a turnkey property with nothing left to do, apart from enjoying the huge amount of hard work that has gone into it.
The Chateau has many possibilities, it would make an ideal family residence or has various possibilities and is registered for business use, currently, it is operated as a luxury B&B and wedding venue and has ongoing contracts with an American tour operator for American tourists by coach. The other very fashionable business interest now is full-service chateau rentals, this would attract around 15,000 euros per week and with the tourist season in this region being around 26 weeks makes a very lucrative business opportunity.
The chateau is set in its parkland of just under 2.5 hectares offering the perfect retreat.
Ground floor: large entrance hall which runs from front to back with access from the front and rear terrace, bar and social room in one of the towers, a large formal dining room, large living room, bedroom with an en-suite bathroom ideal for clients or family with restricted mobility, dining room, fully fitted semi-commercial kitchen, larder, boiler room and utility room, staff bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
1st floor: 4 large bedroom suites, all with en-suite facilities, including 1 room with a luxury spa bathroom.
2nd floor: 4 large and luxurious bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and the bridal suite, which is a gorgeous round bedroom built into the tower with a dressing room and en-suite bathroom.
3rd floor: large attic which has not been converted, but would easily convert into self-contained apartments.
Outside: upon arrival, one drives through the large iron gates to an incredible view of the front of the chateau, this chateau was built in 2 phases so the front is very much different to the back, built by a very rich noble the front is very traditional with a large tower each side, to the rear is the very tradition rectangle shape making this a very unusual and unique chateau.
Sweeping round the chateau is its gorgeous grounds of over 2 hectares which includes a large garage ideal for up to 6 cars built on top of the original vaulted wine cellar, which to date is still used for storing wines, the Orangerie has been fully restored to its former glory and currently operates as a tea room and function room for weddings, swimming pool and new edition this year with Jacuzzi and sauna rooms.
The grounds have been landscaped so plenty of places to disappear to read a book or take a nice glass of wine with a veranda, terrace area and seating dotted around the park, the fountain is a popular feature with the guests, it even has its little pitch & putt and a tennis court. Some of the views from the park are amazing with views over the valley to a very historic French castle which is now a ruin but open for visitors.
The chateau is partly double glazed but certain original windows remain as they could not be replaced to the same beauty, the property is on mains drainage, has full central gas heating and has undergone a huge re-wire through the majority of the property.
Words cannot describe this stunning property and photos cannot show the quality of workmanship carried out by the huge team of artisans, the only way to experience the full effects this chateau has to offer is to visit.
