Crossed by numerous streams and dotted with lakes of all sizes, this part of Green Périgord comprises naturally wooded and undulating surroundings where farming takes pride of place without being invasive.
This property, about an hour from Limoges airport and 45 minutes from Angoulême TGV train station, is near to Nontron, the department’s sub-prefecture and a town renowned for its first-class arts and crafts industries, supported by international companies dealing in leather goods, cutlery, saddlery and tableware. It is also home to an experimental centre for arts and crafts, grouping Nontron’s craftsmen and artists.
The actual residence was constructed in the 18th century on the site of a primitive building, all that remains of which are the magnificent vaulted cellars. This rectangular building spans two levels and an attic floor under a steep hip roof covered in tiles. The walls are thick and the roofing framework sound and robust.
The studded, wooden, arched entrance door, on the north facade facing the parklands, is rustic. It is topped with a little recess containing a bust of general and politician Maximilien-Foy (1775-1825). This facade features large windows, four on the ground floor and five upstairs, the middle one being above the entrance.
On the south side, the central bay upstairs is replaced by two small openings under the roof, which illuminate the access to the maids’ bedrooms and the attic space, and by two tall, narrow roof dormers with stained glass that let tinted light in on to the interior stone stairway. Two ground floor French windows open on to the terrace.
All the door and window frames are new, double-glazed and made-to-measure, with old-fashioned locks.
The floors, laid with parquet flooring in a variety of patterns, are outstanding throughout. The recent radiators reflect an old-fashioned style.
It spans 340 m² of living space, excluding the cellar and the attic space.
These outbuildings are laid out around a perfectly rectangular, inner, enclosed farmyard, spanning 1,500 m².
The swimming area
This swimming area is on a lawn plateau, dominating the parklands and the farmyard, with its outbuildings. It can be reached from the parklands by going up a few steps alongside the woodshed. Enclosed by fencing, a low wall and restored stone buildings, it includes a 9x4 m swimming pool, a changing room and a 2-storey outbuilding housing two storage areas on the ground floor and a south-facing, covered terrace upstairs, which could also be used as a summer eating area.
The initial builders certainly knew what they were doing in choosing this setting! The south-facing aspect, the dominant view, the spring inside the farmyard which now goes to the lake and then to the stream on the edge of the property, provide these premises with positive and powerful vibes. This is reflected in the renovation works carried out by the current owners which have provided modern day home comforts in keeping with the old features, consolidated the masonry and the roofing frameworks of the barns and the cowshed, now awaiting their new vocations, renovated two houses, created an isolated and safe swimming area, renovated the roofs, the perimeter wall, etc. The overall layout, the total floor surface area of the buildings and the multiplication of the partitioned areas makes it possible to envisage all kinds of projects and activities involving bed & breakfast, holiday rental accommodation units, functions, conferences, vintage car collections and community living as well as raising small animals such as hens, rabbits and sheep. The chateau’s deep window embrasures draw its residents’ eyes towards a peaceful landscape, enhancing the promise of well-being exuded by these premises.
