18th C chateau with excellent potential
A remarkable and substantial primary residence dominates this ensemble of pre-Napoleonic buildings
The lofty ceilings of the entrance hall are replicated on both the ground and first floors. One wing of the ground floor boasts a striking dining room adorned with an open fireplace and original stone accents, alongside a vast kitchen occupying the entirety of one end of the building, featuring two expansive marble islands and modern appliances. The kitchen harmoniously combines modern eclectic elements with traditional pieces, exemplified by the Italian chandeliers that adorn much of the property. On the opposite side, there are refined reception rooms, a salon, and a library.

Upstairs, the five bedrooms offer spacious accommodations, each with views overlooking either the Black Mountains or the lush Mediterranean garden. The master bedroom is exceptionally large, spanning the width of the house and complemented by two separate bathrooms and a sizable adjoining dressing room.

All rooms are generously proportioned and visually striking. The house boasts four fully operational original fireplaces, supplemented by central heating throughout facilitated by an efficient air-pump system, while retaining handsome original cast-iron radiators in keeping with the property's character. The floors are adorned with either original tiles or exquisite herringbone parquet.

Flanking the main house on either side are two solid stone edifices reminiscent of garrisons, which once served as workmen's cottages during the property's former incarnation as a farm or vineyard. One is currently utilized for hosting enchanting dinner parties, while the other presents an opportunity for development.
Other outbuildings include an artist's studio, large greenhouse and a chapel.

The grounds are adorned with centuries-old trees, including Lebanese cypress trees favored by the Knights Templar, a meticulously manicured lawn that traces the curve of the ancient Roman wall upon which it is terraced, and a tranquil koi carp pond. Completing the ensemble is a swimming pool, expanses of untamed land, and the entire 3.6 hectares of the property enveloped by trees, rendering it completely secluded from even the occasional passing car on the tranquil country road leading to the nearby village.
