The French property you've always dreamed of... Rich in history, this chateau once belonged to the Peyrer family during the reign of the musketeers, of which their emblem is present throughout the property. The original charm of this dwelling has been preserved: arched stone doorways, mullioned windows, wood panelling and oak flooring, marble fireplaces, doorways and interior shutters and magnificent stone paving in the entrance hall. The 9m entrance hall serves two sitting rooms of 30m and 16m as well as a 23m billiard room and the 33m dining room. The spacious kitchen measures 37m, the laundry 2m, the two larders 4m each and the conservatory 20m. There are ten bedrooms (9, 9, 10, 16, 23, 24, 25, 25, 25 & 26m) spread over three floors as well as two toilets, a 4m bathroom, three washrooms (2, 5 & 9m) and a 26m walk-in wardrobe. Outside, the grounds enjoy an above ground pool with pool house. There is a 39m apartment overlooking the farmhouse courtyard and two renovated gites of 80m & 100m, which will assure you of a rental income, an orangery and a well as well as other barns which complete the ensemble. Comfortable and welcoming, this haven of peace and quiet is ideal for a private family home or indeed a business venture. It offers numerous possibilities given its location, architecture and environment. The roof of the chateau is covered in tile. The walls are built from stone. A septic tank system serves the property. Heating is supplied by gas. There are 18 working fireplaces in the chateau.
