Magnifique Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance French Château

Magnifique Neo-Gothic and Neo-Renaissance French Château

Have you always dreamt about owning an exceptional chateau with the potential to earn income from additional Renaissance styled outbuildings?

You can now turn your dreams into a reality with this remarkable and imposing 19th century chateau situated in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region. With 52 rooms across 1,300 sqm and over 13 hectares of land, there is plenty of scope to create your perfect French life in this fantastic property.

The current owner has lovingly restored and sympathetically upgraded the East wing of the property to an impeccable standard. Work will continue to the West wing until the sale completes, however, this leaves great scope for new owners to renovate the property to their own specification.

In addition to the purchase of the property, the current owner has informed us that most of the furniture can be purchased as part of a separate agreement and negotiation – the incredible thing about this is that the current owners purchased a large proportion of furniture from the previous proprietors. Therefore, in addition to your dream French home, you can also own part of its history by retaining the property’s original furniture.

The property is situated in the heart of the Charente countryside and is surrounded by luscious greenery that provides privacy and glorious scenery. Close to Ruffec, the property has the opportunity to take advantage of the tourists who enjoy visiting and exploring the local areas.

The external grounds are filled with alleys and decorated with ponds and statues. Furthermore, there are several Renaissance styled outbuildings situated close to the main house – the current owner has been working to turn these into gites which will help attract an alternative source of income from the healthy French tourism industry in the area.

The exterior of the property offers a beautiful and surprising blend of neo-gothic and neo-renaissance architecture. With stunning circular turrets featuring conical spires and complimentary natural stone walls – it is quite simply an ideal example of a French chateau.

Internally the property is filled with incredible original features including carvings, sculptures, coats of arms and stained-glass windows. This house oozes history and beauty! There is great potential for new owners to put their own touches to the property whilst restoring the remainder of the property to its former glory.

Situated in the stunning department of Charente which forms part of the super Nouvelle Aquitaine region, this chateau grants access to some of France’s most unspoilt countryside, beautiful villages and incredible vineyards which are well renowned for their Cognac production.

Throughout Charente, the towns and villages are visited by many who enjoy life in a harmonious setting, surrounded by the luscious gift of nature. The outdoor activities and excellent golf courses across the department merely added to the Charente lifestyle that many can only dream of having situated on their doorstep.
