Superb 19th Century Chateau….
Situated in grounds of over 9 hectares and commanding stunning views of the Vendee countryside, this 10 bedroom chateau comes complete with a caretaker’s cottage and a former stable block with a footprint of 290 m2 which is ripe for conversion. Already an elegant family home, there is also enormous potential to generate an income from the property, perhaps as an events venue or other commercial venture. The tranquil setting is a haven for wildlife and includes woodland, ponds, pasture and a separate chestnut wood – a nature lover’s dream.
The chateau has undergone a substantial program of renovation including: installation of a state of the art heating system, rewiring, new plumbing and refurbishment of the roof. These improvements have been thoughtfully carried out resulting in a sympathetic marriage of modern comfort with character features. With lovely proportions and all major works already completed, it will only need some decoration to complete the transformation into a magnificent and welcoming home.
The property has light filled rooms, and the accommodation which is arranged in two wings comprises on the ground floor: spacious and elegant dual aspect salon offering magnificent valley views, formal dining room, cosy panelled library, spacious dining kitchen complete with granite fireplace and fitted units, office orangery and utility room with shower. 10 bedrooms are spread over 2 floors and there are 5 bathrooms – 3 fully fitted and 2 with all services connected only awaiting installation of sanitary ware. In addition, a further 119 m2 of attic space has electrics and flooring installed and could be used to create additional accommodation.
The caretaker’s cottage would be perfect for visitors while architects plans are available for conversion of the stable block into 4 houses – ideal for generating an income.
Situated in peaceful countryside but only 7 km from the town of Pouzauges which has restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities. The popular tourist destination of Puy de Fou is a 30 minute drive and it is around an hour to the celebrated beaches of the Vendee coast.
