Outstanding 16-18C Chateau With Guest Cottage

Formerly a Bishop’s hunting estate dating from the 16th century immaculately presented with elegant light-filled rooms of fine proportions, independent guest accommodation and two collectors’ showrooms.
Approached via a pair of imposing pillars and gates and a 700 meters granite-paved and tree-lined driveway, the chateau sits centrally in its land guaranteeing complete privacy. The property has been recently refurbished to an impeccable standard and offers spacious accommodation with 4-metre high ceilings and generous double doorways. The entrance hall is an impressive central space linking with a double living-dining room and a sumptuous Mark Wilkinson kitchen. Off the hall is an informal family room with adjoining billiards and home cinema, a smaller salon and a private study. An impressive staircase leads to a master suite with roof terrace, three further bedrooms and bathrooms.

Within the rear courtyard is a well-appointed Guest Cottage with large living area, kitchen and 3 bedrooms, 2 shower rooms at first floor level. Extensive outbuildings have garaging, workshops and showroom space. A swimming pool is ideally positioned with sun decks and summer kitchen inside a pigeonnier. To the front of the main building, a raised terrace, with covered entertaining area, has fine views across the parkland with two flights of stone steps leading down. The property is flanked by its own woodland with cedars, oaks and ashes among the many fine centenarian trees.
