Originating from 13th century with 16 & 17C modifications the château has only changed hands twice in its history. Painstakingly restored by the present owners over 30 years, the property offers dramatic yet comfortable accommodation. Set in a strategic position on an elevated promontory with long views over un-spoilt countryside. In spite of its imposing appearance the chateau is warm and welcoming and entirely livable. The main rooms have retained their original ceiling and wall decorations and many outstanding Renaissance fireplaces. The mullioned windows provide excellent natural light and bathrooms have been linked to all the main bedrooms with a minimum of recent partitions.
The inner keep and terraced parkland amount to 2 hectares (including possible swimming pool sites) plus a further 6.5 hectares of woods and pasture to the south of the hamlet. The remains of a separated wing can be left as they are today, a romantic ruin, or restored within ISMH building guidelines. The charming hamlet comprises barely a dozen houses and is protected by the listed status of the chateau and portcullis tower. As a unique private residence or holiday home the chateau would also lend itself to high-end letting.
