Pays de la Loire, Vendée

€498,200 ID: 136253

A unique chance to acquire a wonderful property with a 700 year old history.

This exceptional property is situated in the quiet and calm of the Vendée countryside and has been extremely well refurbished and restored in keeping with its historical past.

The first owners are mentioned in a parchment dated 1360 and remained in the same family until the Revolution where it passed to the State in 1794. It was given Monuments Historiques status in April 1930 and has again come back into the private ownership.

The current owner has restored much of it to its former glory and extremely sympathetically with many original features being retained, however with all mod-cons for today's lifestyle.
This could be a fabulous home with potential to further develop the barns to maximise a commercial potential.

The entrance to the chateau comprises a central part of two towers set on three floors with original stone spiral staircases, crested leaded windows, stone walls, original open fireplaces, solid oak doors, original tiled floors, beams and archways.

There is also a large barn with mistrals gallery and another barn which has had the electrics and water already installed along with a large double glazed window and door, and is ready for conversion into further living accommodation.

There is also a third barn again with electrics and water pipes. The grounds are completely enclosed behind the chateau towers and you enter them by way of the arched entrance.

The main entrance, which is a large oak door in the tower to the right and in the “dungeon” is a shower room and utility storage area. Going up half a level is a fully fitted modern kitchen.
Continuing up the spiral staircase is a lounge, with large open fireplace and off here is a bedroom.
To the rear of the lounge is a further staircase going down into the left tower where there are a further two bedrooms, shower room and a lovely mezzanine level.
Continuing from the first stone staircase you go up to the third level where there is a master bedroom, with oak floor, and ensuite bathroom, with roll top bath.

There are vaulted ceilings in many of the rooms and the original stonework has been well preserved and the furnishings are very much in-keeping with the character of the property with fourposter beds and French baroque furnishings.

Outside, as previously mentioned, are two large barns and also a stone pool house which has also had plumbing and electrics fitted and all the outbuildings have had new roof timbers and are in excellent condition.

The property benefits from oil central heating.
There is a good sized swimming pool and several grassed areas.
There are two fosses - one for the chateau and large barn and a new one fitted for semi-renovated barn. The roof is in good order.

This is an exceptional property and is an unique opportunity not only to acquire a property of some historical significance but to acquire a completely amazing home.
