Nestling in over 14 acres of beautiful land is this magnificent South facing 16th century Chateau with expansive pool, 3 gites, and outbuildings, enjoying far reaching countryside views from its location along the banks of the Canal du Midi near all amenities in Castelnaudary.
Situated between Toulouse and Carcassonne, this superb former fortress was used in the 1600's as a garrison and then was bought by an Italian architect in the 1700's who gave it that Italian Palazzo feel with superb Italian frescoes, moulded ceilings and monumental fireplaces.
This prestigious property is located in the countryside but only 5 minutes by car from the lively town of Castelnaudary with train station, autoroute access, hospital, etc. with some local commerce in the nearby village.
The ground floor includes a grand open entrance with a stone staircase and wrought iron balustrade. Off the hall is the spacious living room, formal dining room, office, laundry room, kitchen and a bedroom and bathroom.
On the first floor are 4 large bedrooms, 2 with walk in wardrobes and 4 bathrooms.
Oil central heating has recently been added and there are several open fireplaces in the key rooms. The roof of the main house has been redone along with several other outbuildings.
The outbuildings have been converted into 2 x 3 bedroom gites and 1 x 2 bedroom gite.
The land is flat, with several horse boxes and fenced paddocks to accommodate horses, ponies, donkeys or lamas. 2 wells are in the grounds.
Attached to the main house is an orangery that could be restored to a beautiful light space.
2 garages and storage make this property exceptional value.
