Pretty restored 18th Century Chateau for sale. Wrought iron gates lead to attractive landscaped grounds with shaded terraces and distant views of snow capped Pyrenees. The present owners rescued the property from gentle decline and 18 years of restoration and interior design have created this special property. Turnkey.
The Chateau was just a shell but it has been fully insulated, replumbed and rewired, with the addition of surround sound with Bang and Olufsen cabling throughout. A high spec kitchen, luxury bathrooms and bespoke staircases were thoughtfully designed to complement the Chateau and its atmosphere. 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.
