This is a wonderful opportunity to become the next owner of this unique property. A six bedroom chateau set in just under 5 hectares of mature parkland gardens with your own pond and a second house to convert, if required, and just 13km from Lake Vassiviere.

With six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two kitchens and a big open-plan lounge/diner, what more would you want. There is also a second property which could be converted into a gite, if required.
The house is double glazed with a dual boiler system which can run on wood pellets or raw timber which can be cut and gathered from your own garden.
There is also a 2000m2 pond in the grounds.

Set in almost five hectares of mature gardens with the feel of parkland and behind an impressive gated entrance, this is a very special property.
Just a kilometer from the nearest bar/restaurant you turn through the double gates and along the curved driveway, passing the lake where you can spend hours fishing.

The chateau comes into view and the dream begins. Steps lead up to the covered front door and into the hallway where you will find exposed beams, decorative tiles, mosaic frescoes and a beautiful curved staircase.
To the right of the hallway is the dining room (29m2) which can be opened up to create and open-plan lounge/diner (72m2). Next to this is a space currently used as a bar/office (9m2). To the left of the hallway are the kitchen (20m2) and a downstairs ‘loo’.

On the first floor is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (32m2) and double doors leading out to a balcony with views across the drive and pond. Bedroom two (25m2) has washing facilities. Bedroom three (23m2) has an ensuite shower and bedroom four (14m2) has a separate wc.

The second floor can be used as a self-contained flat as there are two bedrooms (25m2 & 21m2) with ensuite shower room, a lounge space (26m2) and a kitchen (18m2).

Under the house is a wonderful labyrinth of a cellar which contains two heating systems. One which runs off pellets and the second runs off logs which are plentiful in the 5 hectare estate. There are also workshops and storage spaces.

Within the grounds is a second building which could be a gite or ‘granny annex’.
Currently the ground floor is just a garage space (60m2) for the family car and lawnmowers etc and the first floor (60m2) is partly converted to be used as an office space.

The local village is just 1km away where there is a restaurant. The local primary school is only 6km away.
You will find more shops, bars etc.. at Vallier, 9km away and Royere de Vassiviere is 10km. Lake Vassiviere, one of the biggest man-made lakes in Europe, where you can enjoy all sorts of water sports and outdoor activities, is 13km away.
Aubusson, famous around the world for its tapestries, is 23km away.

This is a magnificent property in a superb setting and it could all be yours!
