Description

This chateau, behind its majestic semi-circular arched gates, stands surrounded by its outbuildings in the northern section of the 15 ha estate. Approx. 6.6 ha are grasslands, 5.3 ha are woods and 3 ha included parklands, an orchard and a vegetable garden.
This property is protected from onlookers on one side by woods and, on the other, by the chateau’s old farm.
The chateau is formed of two totally different sections, dating from totally different eras.
The older section, on the north side, was built in the 16th century. It still has openings characteristic of the Renaissance period, but unfortunately without their mullions.
A new building was built, adjoining and perpendicular to the south end of this first building, during the 18th century. Taller and wider, this section of the chateau is also much more luminous as it faces south and is illuminated by numerous, symmetrical openings.
The chateau has French Historic Monument listing for its roofs and facades as well as an interior room adorned with panelling and featuring a painted ceiling.
The chateau has recently been totally restored outside (apart from the roofs that were simply repaired) and inside. Everything was dismantled, revised, restored or replaced like-for-like when there was no other solution.
It spans more than 1,300 m² of comfortable living space.
The electric wiring, heating, plumbing and sanitation systems are all new. Most of the rooms have internet connection and television facilities.
The outbuildings comprise a 17th century house in a good state of repair on the outside but awaiting restoration and conversion (a potential of 200 m² of living space) as well as a large barn and an impressive listed dovecote.
A caretaker’s cottage is in the process of being constructed in the building in ruins that once housed the bread oven.

The chateau

Having belonged to one of Louis XIV’s ministers, this chateau is overflowing with history, hence its classification on the French Supplementary Historic Monument List as of 1947.
The chateau’s classified features include the facades, the roofing framework, the dovecote, the entrance porch way and the study with its murals and painted ceiling, its period Louis XV fireplace as well as its panelling.

Our opinion

Although each century made its own contribution to the beauty of this property, recent years have made it possible to consolidate its assets whilst introducing a superb level of comfort and technology. The future owners of this magnificent historic building will be extremely fortunate as everything has been revised, replaced and restored, regardless of cost.
The unique advantage bestowed by its location makes this property a site that is rich in potential, whatever purpose is envisaged.
The surroundings have but to be contemplated so that they become familiar.
