Built in the local tuffeau stone, this substantial 5-bedroom, 5-reception room south-facing château could be easily expanded yet further into the large fully-convertible attic and outbuildings.
Set in an established park over 11 hectares, the property features lawns, woodland, orchard and vegetable garden.
There are various outbuildings, including a small second house, and 4 garages.
A stunning in-ground pool is set in a sheltered position with a large terrace, long covered patio and adjacent kitchen, perfect for dining al fresco on a summer’s day.
The whole property flows beautifully and is filled with light from the large picture windows.
Just 5 minutes from the nearest supermarket and 15 minutes from Châtellerault, with all its shops and services. It is also in Châtellerault that you will find the mainline train station from which you can be in Paris in just over 1 hour 30 minutes, or Bordeaux in just over 2 hours.

The central landing brings light down from the roof and right through to the first floor below. If you need extra bedrooms or bathrooms, look no further – anything is possible here.
Generous cellars (approximately 170m² in total) run under the entire main building, accessible either from stairs down from the kitchen, or via the external door at the end of a path running down past the flowerbeds from the terrace. Upon entering the cellars, you find yourself in a surprisingly large, high-ceilinged space, with 2 full-sized windows to the south and east. Apart from the vaulted ceiling, it’s so light you would hardly know you were in a cellar. To the right is another vaulted cellar leading to the boiler room. A main corridor runs the length of the building, with 3 further rooms off to the left and 2 further rooms (and a smaller storage area) off to the right. Every room on this level features the same beautiful vaulted ceiling, and many also have windows.
The property is approached via a drive with automatic gates. The entire 11 hectares is fully enclosed and private. The château is surrounded by a beautiful park with lawn, flowerbeds, trees and woodland, and various outbuildings, including 4 garages and a guest house ripe for renovation. There is also an orchard, a large vegetable garden, and let’s not forget the 6 x 12 metre pool, with its surrounding terrace, pool house, shower, covered patio and summer kitchen.
