In front of the Chateau which is set in attractive grounds of 7.4 hectares approximately, is a small lake of approximately 2,000 sq. metres, and depth up to 3 metres. It is fed from a natural spring on the estate which flows throughout the year. The water has been tested annually, and found to be of high quality, e.g. measurements of e. coil were consistently zero. The lake is home to a wonderful multitude of mammals and birds: wild ducks breed on the tiny island, deer come to drink the waters in the early morning; kingfishers and herons to fish. The rare and protected little emerald green Reinitiate frogs breed successfully here, which accounts for the absence of mosquitoes! Iridescent blue damselflies and dragonflies hovering all around, and sand martins swooping down to drink on the wing at dusk. A wooden bathing platform with steps provides easy access for a dip in the lake.
For sale partly furnished and equipped. Great commercial potential. Further jpg images available upon request.
