This magnificent château, located just a few kilometers from Châlons en Champagne in the Marne department, offers a unique blend of history, elegance, and modern comfort. Situated in a small commune of 380 inhabitants, near a village church, the property enjoys a peaceful yet convenient location.

Dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, the château has a rich history of ownership and architectural evolution. Significant works were carried out by notable figures such as Hugues Mathe and François Jean-Marie Morel, resulting in its current grandeur and charm.

Built of chalk stone with an Irish purplish slate roof, the château stands at the centre of a large rectangular terre-plein surrounded by water, creating a picturesque setting.
A footbridge spanning the moat provides access to the château's courtyard. A magnificent main gate stands at the entrance to the bridge. On either side are two two-storey square pavilions, formerly dovecotes. The château has a classic east-west orientation, ensuring maximum sunlight. The gardens are to the east and the courtyard to the west.

The main château features a central body flanked by wings, with two lower wings attached symmetrically. A footbridge spanning the moat provides access to the courtyard, where a magnificent main gate stands at the entrance. Inside, the château offers an impressive 595 sqm first floor, comprising a vestibule with a double spiral staircase, six large salons, a fully-equipped kitchen, and various other rooms.

In addition to the main château, the property includes several outbuildings, such as a north pigeon house converted into a fully-equipped gîte, a south dovecote with potential for renovation, and a reception marquee.

The extension comprises a large private apartment with fitted kitchen, 1 bathroom, 2 wc, 4 bedrooms, 2 offices and a laundry area. There's also a seminar area with its own independent staircase, comprising two training rooms and a breakout room.

To the north, a final two-storey extension breaks the symmetry of the château. And, at the end of this extension, a heat pump-heated swimming pool (4 x 10 meters) (64 cubic meters of water). The château and northern extension total 1,535 sqm, with a further 210 sqm of accessible undeveloped attic space and 128 sqm of non-accessible attic space in the north and south pavilions.

The 595 sqm first floor is composed as follows:
A main entrance with a magnificent double spiral staircase in wood and wrought-iron banisters. The vestibule's cabochon tiled floor is almost three hundred years old. On either side of this entrance are 6 large salons with wood panelling and parquet flooring in a variety of patterns (Versailles, herringbone, bâton rompu, mosaic...). The doors feature elaborate bronze fittings. They feature the Counts De Riocourt family coat of arms in the form of a crown surmounted by nine balls indicating their rank of nobility. A large, fully-equipped kitchen, 4 toilets including 2 with disabled access, numerous storerooms and anterooms.
