An opportunity to buy a unique Neo-Palladian Chateau in the Champagne area. Built around 1810 on a hillock with extensive views over the whole estate this is an example of Classicism which has practically no equal. The shade provided by the immense pediment supported by pillars and the luminosity of the atrium, thanks to its skylight are examples of Italian architecture which, at the time of its construction, was second to none. The main property has 600m2 of habitable space - 250m2 on each level and the accommodation comprises:

Basement floor- This includes the kitchens: the old one, with its monumental fireplace, its vegetable garden and its stone sink, and the modern one, all perfectly
equipped. There is also a pantry, WC, reception rooms, garage, boiler room, wine cellar, and a beautiful bedroom with bathroom. This level could be used for staff quarters although it has been done up extremely comfortably and could equally be used for additional guest accommodation.
