Recently reduced in price, this stunning and historical fairy-tale French Chateau with panoramic valley views, is ideally located within a large estate of 135,000m2 with 4 guest cottages and 15.5 hectares (37 acres) of woodland, meadows and manicured gardens.
In a beautiful setting overlooking the town of Chalais, this stunning Chateau sits amidst the rolling countryside of the Charente.
The principal Chateau (646m2) consists of 3 wings surrounding a sun-trap courtyard, all surrounded by a dry moat. Originally dating back to around 1150, this fabulous property is steeped in history. The accommodation is versatile and would suit a hospitality business, but is equally ideal as a private home.
On the ground floor there is a private chapel, 3 kitchens and several reception rooms and the first floor has 12 bedrooms with 2 master suites.
With connecting doors and several entrances, the Chateau can be divided into apartments if required. The first floor features much original parquet flooring and the ground floor is attractively tiled.
4 cottages surround the attractive pool and terrace. With 3, 2, 2 and 1 bedrooms respectively they offer huge potential for a commercial activity. A further unconverted barn could create further accommodation - or would be suitable as stables to create a great and luxurious equestrian centre.
Nicely decorated and beautifully presented, this property would benefit from a light refresh and a modern central heating system. A new septic tank for the Chateau is also required.
Local shops are just 1km away, and the town of Chalais has a train station and larger supermarkets. Bordeaux airport is 1 hour 15 minutes away and Bergerac airport 1 hour 20 minutes.
