Details

Absolutely beautiful 3 storey, 11 bedroom stone French Chateau with separate cottage, nestling in over 7 acres of glorious landscaped gardens with expansive pool while enjoying wonderful countryside views from its peaceful location near
Arnac-Pompadour.

This superb property is offered for sale in excellent order and consists of 30 exquisitely-decorated rooms including 11 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms.

Probably of medieval origin, at one time a wolf-hunting lodge, the chateau is believed to have been given by Louis 15th Centuryo his favourite mistress, Madame de Pompadour, in 1745. Its documented history traces back from around 1600 to the Sanzillon family, whose emblem can still be seen in several places around the chateau today.

An impressively-proportioned great hall with imposing stone fireplace and pise floor provides a centrepiece for the ground floor.

Upstairs, the elegantly decorated master bedroom is adorned with rare enamel glass panels from the internationally-renowned 19th century artist, Amedee de Caranza.

Many historic features can be found throughout the chateau including ancient brickwork containing text and a carved wooden mantlepiece.

The present owners embarked on an extensive restoration project some 25 years ago, utilising master craftsmen and the finest local materials to bring the property into pristine condition. Across the courtyard from the main chateau building is a spacious two-storey galleried annexe which would be a perfect function facility for weddings or indeed conferences.

In addition to the chateau, there is also a 3 bedroom cottage in excellent order, as well as a stand-alone traditional bread oven. Securely fenced, a salt water heated swimming pool with large changing room/summer kitchen sits discreetly between the chateau and cottage.

Within the grounds are many mature trees and shrubs, a large decorative pond and a fresh water spring. Garden equipment is securely housed in a triple garage/toolstore.

With just a 10 minute drive to all commerce, the racetrack and of course the magnificent 11th century chateau at Pompadour, this property is ideally located.
