Once part of a vineyard property, this impressive Chateau is on the edge of a small village in the countryside surrounding Narbonne. It has retained many original features including marble fireplaces, beautiful moulded ceilings, original floors and joinery. The reception rooms are elegant and light and all have views onto the grounds or the south facing courtyard which has large orange and lemon trees. A 15 metre heated swimming pool completes the ambiance for this property which has considerable potential. It is only walking distance to shops and basic amenities as well as a restaurant and a market and larger amenities are just 5 minutes drive away. Ideal setting to create a luxury B & B or Boutique Hotel.

Ground Floor: Magnificent reception room, 67m2. Marble fireplace. Grand Hall with lovely curved stone staircase. Smaller Salon 20m2 with fireplace. Sunny kitchen 25m2. Formal Dining room, carved fireplace and moulded ceiling 37m2. Former Chateau kitchen with original features 15m2 and finally a large room of 28m2 and a shower room with W.C. 9m2.

First Floor: Large hall giving access to 7 bedrooms ranging from 17 - 36m2 with high ceilings, original floors and fireplaces. 3 nicely fitted and decorated bathrooms.

Second Floor: Bedroom of 22m2 on one side of the hall and another of 17m2 and a curved lobby leads to a fabulous bedroom of 47m2 with en suite bathroom. To the other side is a space of 66m2 with five windows with a sloping roof light which would lend itself to a creative activity ( yoga room, dance studio etc) . To one side of this space is a further workroom of 33m2 leading to a room in the East tower of 33m2. There is access to the large flat roof where you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the Pyrenees.

Basement: Cellar of about 40m2 with heating room, wine cellar, storage space.
Space to park several cars.
Independent workshop of 30m2.

Grounds: A driveway leads from wrought iron gates around the edge of the property to the car park. The ground are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs. The total private courtyard is planted with citrus trees and has a circular ornamental pond or 'basin'. There is also a pedestrian gate with intercom leading directly towards the village at the side of the property.

Swimming pool 15 x 5 metres heated with surround.

Condition: The chateau is in good condition, tastefully decorated throughout. The renovation has been carried out to a very high standard. The entire facade has been recently re-rendered and the shutters replaced with hand made replicas of the originals. An efficient oil fired central heating system exists and all plumbing and wiring has been replaced.

Comments; An amazing opportunity to acquire an elegant chateau in an 'edge of village setting' in turnkey condition and with considerable commercial potential. The addition of 2 or 3 extra bathrooms would be all that was needed to make it highly suitable for a boutique hotel or prestigious conference centre or B & B.
