This really is a unique opportunity to acquire a stunning chateau with a wealth of history to it, situated in beautiful countryside.
It has the option of being sold fully furnished with some family antiques.
Situated in the Limousin countryside just 21 miles from Limoges International airport, and just 1 mile from the local town with patisserie, bar restaurant, shop, train station and local leisure lake.
The Chateau has a small house with it, a huge stone built old 'factory' ripe for conversion on the edge of the lake, and the 10.71 hectare fishing lake, which has water rights to create electricity if you wanted to (an estimated 50 kw, at peak times).
There is also the old Chestnut orchard, the 'marrons' create an additional yearly income, the Château was originally famous for its private water source which is still bottled locally, (but not part of the sale).
The property sits at the end of a long driveway through the woods, that opens up into the gravelled courtyard to the front, steps lead up to the double doors that open into the beautiful entrance hall of 25 m² with unique vaulted ceilings (which are visible throughout the property), to the right you are led into the reception room/office of 24.3 m², double doors lead through into the main living room of 43 m² with three sets of French doors opening out onto the rear terrace and stunning views over the land leading down to the lake below.
To the left of this room is a second living room/billiards room of 31 m² with arched doorways and ceilings, behind this room (to the left of the entrance hall) is the large dinning room of 37 m². To the rear of the dinning room is the small kitchen of 12 m² (originally the main kitchen would have been in the basement and this room would have been used purely for serving) it now has fitted units, but could do with some modernising, a rear hallway leads down to a shower room, with w.c. & washbasin.
This rear hallway has a stunning spiral staircase leading down to the basement and up to the first and second floors,
On the first floor there are 7 bedrooms; each room has a name plate on the door, such as....
Palerme has a shower room
Naples & Taormina share a shower room,
Turin has a w.c.
Venise & Florence share a shower room,
Milan has a shower room.
On the second floor the rooms have names such as...
Montauban 16 m2,
Tarbes 14.7 m2,
Ismailia 25 m2,
Damiette 14 m2,
Bordeaux 13 m2,
Lure 10 m2,
there are also some areas for storage, so there are possibilities to add additional en-suites to some rooms, and there is a small kitchen, maids room, a w.c. with sink and shower. This floor would be ideal as an apartment for owners, or employees.
In the basement there is a boiler room of 30 m², the boiler is an inertia style oil fired boiler.
A wine cellar of 33 m², two wood stores of 20 m² and 27 m², the original kitchen of 28 m² with fireplace, this is where the spring water is pumped into the house, and a utility room of 12 m² with a sink, plus some storage space.
The Château has recently had high quality crystal glass wool insulation fitted throughout, u.p.v.c windows (made in the original style), which are white outside with wood finish on the inside with small panes detail, it also has new electric shutters fitted to the windows. Along with several wood burning fires the property is heated by an oil fired hot air central heating system that pumps hot air around the property via ducts, this heats up very quickly once ignited.
Outside the land of 41 hectares, is made up of approximately 15 hectares of woodland, a 1 km long 10.7 hectare lake and 13 hectares of meadows, which totally surround the property making it totally secluded, and a stunning setting open to so many possibilities.
There is also another small house and garage with the property, this has also been renovated and consists of on the ground floor : A living room of 16 m², an office of 4.2 m² and a utility area of 5.3 m², on the 1st floor a large living room of 17 m², a kitchen/dinning room of 19.5 m², a bedroom, hallway, shower room and W.C.
There is a tiny chapel opposite the front of the Château that used to be the original ice storage room.
Set apart from the Château (on the far side of the lake) is the original factory for the bottled source water, this building of 550 m² offers a vast array of possibilities. (The new factory is being sold separetly and will not affect the Château in any way).
There are 2 tractors, a wood splitter, 4 new sheds and various other machinery included in the sale.
Some possible ideas that spring to mind: A fabulous fishing lake venue, the old factory would create a fantastic events venue &/restaurant or spa/wellness facility overlooking the lake (a beautiful old barge wouldn't look out of place here either) & this area has a separate entrance to the Château.
The Château itself lends itself to bed and breakfast/hotel accommodation and events.
Finally not forgetting the immediate income available each year from collecting and selling the marrons, and the possibility of harnessing the water to produce electricity, the current owner has bee hives producing honey on the property, and the lake is a stunning fishing location, this property really does come with so many possibilites....
