6 bedroom French chateau for sale, Limoges, Haute-Vienne, Limousin
901,000 EUR 792,880 GBP 1,108,230 USD
Simply stunning 12th Century French Chateau with a vast total living area of 620m2, set within a totally enclosed parkland plot of 12,587m2 and with a boutique hotel, located in a small village which is approximately 35 minutes from Limoges in the Limousin region of France.
This amazing Chateau was originally built in 1210 for the wealthy De Razes family and then bought by the De Montcourt family in 1667 who retained the chateau until 1987, at which point it started its new generation of life up to its current day high standard of renovation. It has been renovated with taste yet still retains many of its original features.
This truly becomes a fine example of turn up and move in Chateau with all the work done.
Currently a private home and boutique hotel, that has hosted its hospitality as a tranquil retreat to many well-known personalities, the property is divided into 2 parts, the main Chateau which is the private residence and an annex which is a 3 bedroom boutique hotel.
Ground floor; large fully fitted chateau kitchen with utility room built into the base of the tower; informal dining area with fireplace and log burner; entrance hall; large formal living room; large formal dining room with what looks like the creation of a dungeon,in the base of another tower, but actually a beautiful wine cellar,
1st floor: huge master bedroom with en-suite bathroom built into the tower; large bedroom with dressing room and en-suite bathroom; further large bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom.
Huge attic space, which has not as yet been converted, but could easily be transformed to create more bedrooms or suites.
The Chateau is heated with wood and/or oil central heating.
The annex, which gives the impression of a little very traditional French bistro, is built into the courtyard of the chateau, entering the dining room with commercial kitchen, very modern but authentic, with many signatures of previous guests with some quite famous autographs written on the walls and beams, this room has such character. Leading out of this room is the library which is a nice quiet area to relax and read, with a false panel door leading to the utility and laundry room. There is also a gym/fitness room,
1st floor: 2 light and airy bedrooms both with en-suites.
2nd floor: large bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
To the rear of the hotel, there is a sunny terrace leading onto the grassed parkland, with pond and water feature. The hotel area has gas central heating throughout.
Outside is the enclosed stone courtyard, large grass park of 12,587m2, with shrubs and trees and stone wall, opposite the chateau is what used to be the chapel, but now used as a storage building, with the right permissions this could be created back into a chapel or a gite.
The photos and description of this property serve no justice to actually being at the Chateau and this is a must to visit to feel the pure magic and charm it offers.
