- Beautiful 19th-century chateau with potential
A magnificent 19th-century chateau that has been tastefully restored and modernised. The property is part of an exclusive wine-producing domain and is surrounded by vinefields with far reaching views towards the Pyrenees. The chateau includes nearly 1000m2 of habitable space, which has been divided into three separate living areas. There are further areas and a large garage which could be developed to provide additional living space or utility areas. A large central archway, formerly used by horses-drawn carriages, leads from the front of the chateau to the back. <br.>The main wing of the chateau, comprising 460m2, has been refurbished with geothermal underfloor heating throughout and is fully insulated. The former orangerie on the ground floor has been transformed into a stunning salon with several French doors opening out onto a gravelled terrace overlooking the expansive grounds. The terrace runs the full length of the front facade of the chateau. There are four large bedrooms, a library with spiral staircase leading to a 40m2 artist's studio in the former clocktower, a large fully-fitted kitchen and a separate dining room.<br.>The remaining sections of the chateau have been divided into two separate and very spacious self-contained living areas with all modern facilities. These have been successfully rented as up-market holiday accommodation. At the back of the chateau there is a shady tree-lined courtyard that provides generous parking facilities for guests. <br.>Highly attractive as a very spacious family home, the chateau is also ideally configured and located to offer a wide variety of business opportunities. These could include running a profitable wedding reception venue combined with vocationally themed vacation courses, including artistic pursuits, haute cuisine, wine-making and increasingly popular holistic activities. <br.>Nearby airports at Beziers and Carcassonne provide international connections, and the high-speed TGV rail-link connects to Paris, Bordeaux and Barcelona. The chateau is half an hour from the Mediterranean sea and there are several top golf courses nearby.
