Located only 50 minutes from Toulouse international airport and 30 minutes from the world heritage city of Alibi, this amazing property has been tastefully renovated throughout.
The chateau dates back to the thirteenth century and the renovation has been carried out to a very high standard.
The property is located in a rural setting in a peaceful, dominant position with unique view of a nearby medieval bastide and dramatic scenery and only a few minutes from a local cafe, restaurants and general store. The very popular town of Gaillac is only a 20 minutes' drive where you will find all commodities, railway station and motorway links.
It is hard to imagine that this property was left as a ruin for over 100 years. The current owners saw the potential there and have carried out a full renovation of the main chateau and separate dwelling to an extremely high standard and used wooden framed double glazing throughout, lime stone walls and underfloor heating. The chateau has history going back to the 12th century and if anyone is interested we do have a copy of a text produced by a local historian.
The grounds of the property are accessed by electric gates. Through the gates there is a large drive and the imposing tower. You immediately know that you have entered a special area with stunning views of the local countryside.
On entering the property we find a hall way (18m2) with terracotta tiles and exposed beams. To the left there is a lovely reception room (30m2) with stone fireplace, tiled floors and two sets of French doors out onto the terrace and garden. Back to the hall way and to the right we find the breakfast room (13m2) from where there is access to the pool and to the formal dining room. The dining room (26m2) once again has the same theme running through with tiled floors exposed beams and here there is also access to another terrace. The kitchen is fully equipped (18m2) and very functional.
From the dining room there are stairs down to the garden level where we find the first of the 5 bedrooms in the Chateau. This large master bedroom (45m2) has an en-suite bathroom of (7m2) and doors to the terrace and garden. On this level there is also a laundry room, wine cellar and boiler room, where there are the controls for the pool.
The first floor is accessed by a wonderful spiral staircase. On the first floor landing we find the master bedroom (34m2) which has en-suite facilities (10m2). There is also a third bedroom (20m2) with an en-suite shower room. The bedrooms have all been renovated to a high standard with the master bedroom boasting a rather lovely ceiling a la Francaise.
The second floor we find 2 further bedrooms (9m2 and 19m2). The larger of the two also has a mezzanine level, ideal for the children. Here there is a shower room and the large bedroom is also with en-suite bathroom.
The added bonus to this already fabulous property is the independent second house. This property has been extremely well renovated and offers around (140M2) of living space.
On the ground floor there is an open plan living area of around (60m2). Here we have the sitting room, kitchen and dining area. There is an open fireplace with two sets of French doors out onto the terrace. Another huge advantage is having an en-suite (8m2) bedroom on this level (19m2). Once again the whole property is tiled and double glazed throughout.
The first floor of the second house offers a further 2 bedrooms (25 and 22m2) plus a family bathroom of (12m2). This level has electric heaters and wooden flooring throughout.
The grounds of around 2 hectares are really stunning with almost 360 degree views, several terraces, a heated infinity pool (11m x 5m), vegetable patch and even an old ruin to explore. The grounds are very private with electric gates and video entry phone.
This is truly a very special place that has been beautifully restored to an exceptionally high standard. It would make a wonderful family home with the added bonus of rental potential in either the second home or the chateau.
