Pretty restored 18th Century Chateau for sale. Imposing wrought iron gates lead to the attractive landscaped grounds with shaded terraces and distant views of the snow capped Pyrenees. The present owners rescued the property after several years of gentle decline and employed their skills of restoration and interior design together with eighteen years of perseverance to create this spectacular property.
The Chateau was just a shell when they bought it but they have fully insulated, re plumbed and rewired the house with the addition of surround sound with Bang and Olufsen cabling throughout. They have installed a high spec kitchen, luxury bathrooms and bespoke staircases through fully designed to complement the Chateau and retain its soul. Some areas were reconfigured to facilitate modern lifestyles but they sourced fireplaces, roll top baths, taps and iron radiators to add to the period atmosphere. Local marble created some interesting floors and a wall in the dining room boasts a mural painted by wildlife artist Michael Jackson. Finally the Chateau has fibre internet which is a rarity in rural France.
There is no swimming pool but plenty of place to install one.
