An impressive Chateau for sale in the style of Napoleon with 581m2 of renovated living space with a caretaker’s house of 260m2 and set in 12 hectares of land. This beautiful historic property has had its electrics, plumbing, roof and central heating brought up to date but has retained its soul and authenticity.

A sweeping wooded drive leads to the Chateau , flanked by an elegant barn on either side. The accommodation comprises:
Ground Floor: Impressive entrance hall, salon, library, dining room with French doors to an exterior terrace and stone staircase, a second salon, and large games room. All the rooms have been renovated and retained their original cachet and grandeur.
In the East Wing lies an office. West wing of the chateau: a large family kitchen with original fireplace, large scullery, downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a guest cloakroom completes the ground floor. An imposing stone staircase leads to:
First Floor: Six light bedrooms with elegant proportions, each with access to a private bathroom. Amongst many of the authentic details which remain in the Chateau are the original oiled parquet floors, marble fireplaces and large windows . In addition the original servants' quarters are ready for conversion.
Basement; The basement of the chateau has excellent wine cellars and several rooms which would easily be transformed into accommodation with access to the gardens.

Grounds; A lovely park of 12 hectares planted with trees that are more than 100 years old.There is a fibreglass pool.

Outbuildings; A stable block which has 9 boxes, a dovecote, an internal kitchen courtyard and a chicken coop, a well, and a large barn.

Separate Caretaker's house: A little further up from the Chateau is this house with 260m2, recently restored internally but in need of repairs to the roof. Four bedrooms, a large salon with fireplace and French doors to a private south facing terrace, a dining room and a kitchen.

The property was renovated in 2010 and is now extremely comfortable. One or two final touches remain to be completed - for example hanging new shutters which are already stored in the cellars, and freshening up the outside appearance to return this lovely property to its full sparkling grandeur.

Less than 10 minutes from the Bordeaux / Pau autoroute exchange, this estate offers tremendous potential for business ventures, whether as a hotel, restaurant, chambres d'hotes or Gites or for equestrian projects thanks to the existing stables, woodland and meadows. It could equally be suitable for 2 to 3 families living together.

The chateau is 20 minutes from the Landes Prefecture town of Mont de Marsan and Aire-sur-Adour, 30 minutes to Nogaro, famous for its racing circuit, 70 minutes from the Landes beaches and 90 minutes to the mountains.
