A majestic 19th Century chateau with a spacious coach house, another un-renovated house, private river banks, a lake and woodland. Set in 6 hectares.
This magnificent chateau, until recently, operated as a luxury boutique hotel, making the most of its excellent location. It is just a 15-minute drive from the bustling city of Niort, within an hour's reach of La Rochelle, and only 30 minutes away from Poitiers, which offers an international airport and a 1-hour and 20-minute TGV connection to Paris.
The beautifully restored 19th-century chateau, set in a commanding position within a little over 6 hectares of parkland, includes a lovely three-bedroom cottage with a sauna in the converted coach house. Additionally, there is a substantial workshop, a garage, and another house to be finished, subject to the necessary permissions.
The chateau itself boasts nearly 600m2 of living space, spread over 5 floors. The basement features a large traditional kitchen with an open fireplace and an original dumbwaiter, a billiard room, a vaulted cellar, and a utility room. On the ground floor, you'll find a magnificent entrance hall with an open fireplace, a living room with a fireplace leading to a south-facing terrace, a sumptuous dining room with terrace access, an office, and a WC.
The first and second floors offer a total of 4 ensuite bedrooms, a 2-bedroom apartment with its own sitting room and private bathroom, another living room, and a laundry room. The third-floor tower room currently serves as a playroom/bedroom with four windows providing stunning elevated views. The fourth floor also has a renovated room of 42 m².
Between the chateau and the outbuildings lies a new swimming pool complex, offering a 12m x 6m heated saltwater pool with a sliding roof and electric cover. This complex also features a sauna, a hot tub, changing rooms with WC and a shower, as well as terraces with scenic views of the valley. Additionally, there is a beautifully restored private Romanesque chapel within the grounds.
