2 hours from Paris and an hour from Orléans, in the area known as Sologne-des-Etangs, just a stone’s throw from Romorantin-Lanthenay, capital of the Sologne region, a town with all amenities, shops and schools.
This chateau is accessed via a bridge spanning the water-filled moat. Wrought iron gates are set in an impressive sculpted stone archway. The partially paved, quadrangular courtyard is flanked by two wings of the chateau with the moat on the other two sides.
Mentioned in archives since the 10th century, this chateau comprises an 18th century building, spanning two levels, a ground floor and a floor under the roof. Its lime-rendered facades have openings surrounded by freestone framing. Its slate, gable roofs feature regularly spaced dressed stone, roof dormers, with moulded framing and scrolled jambs. At the end of one of the wings, dominating the moat, an impressive, square, Henri II style pavilion is slightly raised in relation to the rest of the chateau. It is topped with a slate, hip roof, topped with two finials. A horseshoe-shaped stairway provides access to this Renaissance pavilion. Mullioned windows, made of freestone, have oak wood frames and diamond-shaped leaded lights. A watch-turret, on the north-west corner of the pavilion, is topped with a candlesnuffer roof and its finial.
The entire chateau has been meticulously renovated in accordance with good trade practices over recent years.
The parklands and the vegetable garden
The chateau, surrounded by its moat, is built in the midst of more than 4 ha of parklands, comprising a vegetable garden, an orangery, vast lawns, a boxwood maze, several watering holes and the river.
On the right-hand side of the driveway, leading to the chateau, extends an outstanding vegetable garden, surrounded by four brick pavilions. Spanning a surface area of more than 3,700 m², it comprises 24 growing squares surrounded by boxwood. The walls are covered with fruit trees, apple, pear, etc., trained along espaliers. Dominating the vegetable garden is a square of fruit trees, with tree arbours, boxwood borders, red fruit parterres, etc. On the opposite side are a greenhouse, eight cold frames and a vine-covered arbour.
A little further away, surrounded by tall hornbeam trees, a tennis court and its wall await restoration.
The estate also comprises equestrian facilities: a total of more than 4.5 ha of paddocks, surrounded by wooden fencing. Two shelters house several horse loose boxes and storage areas. A riding arena spans 3,000 m².
A house near to the vegetable garden is known as the “orangery”. Constructed in recent years, it comprises a first-class brick building, with a local tile roof and terracotta floor tiles. The roofing framework, the panelling as well as the door and window frames, with their double-glazing, are made of oak wood. Wide semi-circular picture windows open on to the south-facing terrace and swimming pool (15x6 m).
The inside comprises a vast living room, with a cathedral ceiling (7.80 m high ridge), a fitted kitchen and two bedrooms with their bathrooms. A spiral, oak wood stairway goes upstairs where a space on the left-hand side under the roof awaits conversion and a walkway, on the right-hand side, runs above the living room on the ground floor, providing access to a second room awaiting conversion. Plumbing has been laid on for a future bathroom.
Not far from the entrance to the estate stands the farm which has also undergone meticulous restoration works. Its four buildings form a courtyard. These house a hunting room, stables and a tack room, pantries and a kitchen, cold rooms, a dairy, barns, garages, a pigsty, a henhouse and a workshop. These extensive facilities are all recent and in good working order.
A caretaker’s cottage stands on the north side of the courtyard. This construction, comprising a ground and a first floor, spans a total of 180 m² of living space and includes four bedrooms.
The gamekeeper’s house
An L-shaped house, constructed during the 1970’s, stands in the midst of the forest. It spans 220 m², with a ground floor and an upstairs under the roof. This house has its own entrance off of the road as well as its own electricity and water meters.
The estate’s two secondary farms
The estate also includes two other farms, both much smaller than the main farm. The first comprises a house, miscellaneous buildings and farm sheds. The second, with four buildings set out around a courtyard, stands at the other end of the property and is currently in a state of ruin.
The hunting grounds
The estate is crossed from east to west by a large private river, spanned by a bridge-walkway, made of painted, glue-laminated timber, covered with wooden tiles. It enables all vehicles to cross from one bank to the other.
With a wide diversity, the biotope comprises woods, coppice stand, farmland, untenanted meadows, several lakes, ponds as well as streams and all of it is in a Natura 2000 area.
A maze, laid out in the shape of a fortress, the vegetable garden with its 24 well-aligned squares, the river spanned by a covered walkway, totally private as it crosses the estate, and the water-filled moat all attract the visitors’ eye before they reach the chateau’s 18th century wings and its Renaissance pavilion. The outbuildings spread throughout the immense property are mostly in an excellent state of repair. The natural surroundings are tamed between the rows of hornbeam trees and yet remain wild throughout the hunting grounds. Some of the rooms are theatrical and others are cosier. Already quite vast, this miniature version of the Sologne region has everything to suit all states of mind and all types of future projects.
