11 bedroom French chateau for sale, Paris, Seine-et-Marne, Paris-Ile-de-France
25,000,000 EUR 21,500,000 GBP 31,000,000 USD
Superb French Chateau situated within an estate which is set within a landscape which is typical of the Seine-et-Marne area, composed of rural flat land and woods.
This region is famous for the shooting areas (The neighbouring chateau de Fontenailles is a former Greffulhe hunting property, Peugeot shooting properties are next door, Rothschild estates, King of Moroccoetc).
Despite the relative proximity to Orly Airport, it seems that no noise is generated by any aerial traffic.
This estate is in majority registered as Agricultural, and this make the change of use for existing buildings very difficult (ie. Into residential) and excludes any constructability other than those directly linked to the agricultural use. However 7 buildings have been accepted as possible to transform into residential units.
The chateau dates from the early 20th Century, and was redeveloped by the current family who occasionally use as a private residence. The structural condition is very good.
Inside the interiors are well kept but would require some upgrade regarding comforts, and decoration.
