Property Description

This is a 19th-century castle and estate that is situated in the countryside but is only a 5-minute drive from shops and a 10-minute drive from Angoulême town center and its high-speed train station. The estate provides easy access to Paris and Bordeaux within 35 minutes.

The castle is set on a 21-hectare estate that dates back to 1856. It consists of a main stone house with three levels, each around 150 sq.m, a large basement, and two stone wings. There are 18 main rooms, including 10 bedrooms. It is a magnificent property that is perfect for anyone who appreciates the countryside but wants to be close to amenities.

Several original features have been maintained in the building, such as the grand central staircase, wood paneling, high ceilings (around 3.30 m), cornices, molded interior doors, and baseboards.

In the large basement level, there's a storeroom, a laundry room, a workshop, a storeroom and a wine cellar. A new heat pump heats the main house.

A landing leading to a hallway, four bedrooms, one of which is 22 sq.m and the other 40 sq.m, both with exposed stonework, another of which is used as a gym overlooking the parklands, a shower room with toilet and a dressing room.

A very bright swimming pool room (9 x 4 m heated) of approx. 105 sq.m with underfloor heating and a fireplace, and in the basement a garage with space for a car.

This is a second independent house that covers an area of about 132 sq.m. It includes an entrance hall, a fitted kitchen, a large living room, a bathroom, and two bedrooms. In addition, there is a spacious garage in the basement that can accommodate up to four vehicles.

The second house is perfect for use as a guest house, a bed and breakfast, or it can be adapted for use as a reception or seminar room if desired.
