The Chateau had suffered several years of gentle decline before it was 'rescued' by its current owners some 20 years ago. Since 2006, the current owners have over-seen the extensive professional rénovations which have rejuvenated this building and opened up its commercial value for either long term Professional lets or seasonal rentals.
The professional renovations included the complete re-roofing of the chateau and its former coach house; full re-wiring; complete re-plumbing and the installation of two new septic tanks; installation of two gas fired central heating systems; replacement double glazed hardwood windows and shutters; new high spec kitchens and bathrooms and the installation of a 17 x 4m salt water swimming pool.
The Chateau offers four apartments with the option of creating a fifth apartment on the third floor where there are currently four en-suite bedrooms. The former Coach House has been divided into four apartments. A Second Outbuilding, adjoining to the first, is divided into three further apartments. The former one bedroom Conciergerie completes the ensemble.
French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing this estate, which offers a prospective buyer several different business opportunities; for example, seasonal or long term rentals or the possibility of running an events' venue.
