Set in the unspoilt countryside of the Limousin, this beautiful XV/XVIC. Château benefits from extended panoramic views and is surrounded by 15 hectares of meadows, park and woodland with the possibility of acquiring an additional 32 hectares.

This castle, with its rich historical past, consists of a rectangular main building with two circular corner towers and a quadrangular staircase tower in the centre of the main façade. It is supplemented by a wing in return of angle square serving as an entrance via a doorway, which would originally have been equipped with a drawbridge.

Largely restored, it now extends over 500 m² and includes:

Ground Floor: a large kitchen of about 60 m² with a beautiful stone floor with integrated heating and a monumental granite country fireplace that communicates with a room in the corner tower and its ancient sink dating back to the Middle Ages; A large vaulted room for cellar use and various service rooms;

First Floor ( or 'Noble' Floor)r: a large dining room of 60 m² very bright and well lit with superb windows with mullions decorated with stained-glass windows, a tommette tiled floor and exposed beams with an adjoining room serving as kitchen; A living room of 60 m² also with tommette tiles, beamed ceiling and mullioned windows as well as a fine fireplace and with a triple exposition and an adjoining library arranged in the round tower; Sleeping quarters::3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; All the rooms have period monumental fireplaces.

Second Floor: Part of the surface is under renovation (insulation, water, heating and electricity) and could accommodate additional rooms. The other part is a loft suitable for conversion.

The house has two spiral staircases which would allow different accesses in the event that some form of commercial activity were envisaged.

The ensemble contains many elements that testify to the life of the house in the Middle Ages (cannon ports, crossbow apertures, wells, ancient moats and the ruins of a chapel ). The roofs are in good condition and the restoration has been done with quality materials in respect of materials and colours. Modern comfort (efficient boiler, low temperature underfloor heating, Mains drainage).

The view from the gardens is spectacular: the Castle dominates its green meadows bordered by the river; The woods and the surrounding valleys contribute to the charm of this timeless place.

The outbuildings include two agricultural barns and an old building (potentially convertible into an annexe house) as well as a vegetable garden. Very peaceful surroundings.

Possibility to acquire an additional 24 hectares of adjoining meadows and 8 hectares of agricultural land in the immediate vicinity.

Location: close to a small town with all amenities - SNCF station 15 minutes away. Paris 4 hours by car.
