For Sale: 17th Century Chateau South of Paris

Reconstructed in the 17th century, this chateau has known several illustrious owners. Located 150km south of Paris, it offers 600m² of living space set in a rectangular-shaped building flanked by two Mansart-style lodges which sit proudly in more than 6 hectares (almost 15 acres) of parkland. The outbuildings, complemented by their small clock tower, have been perfectly restored and stand alone from the main house. They house, notably, a plush apartment, stables, garages and other work areas as well as a chapel. The property also enjoys a tennis court and swimming pool.

The ground floor of the chateau is composed of a vast entrance hall, a corridor serving the reception rooms which include a library, grand living room (complete with marble fireplace, wooden panelling and flooring), a dining room (with wood fireplace, panelling and flooring), a spacious kitchen and larder allowing access to the rear of the chateau.

The grand oak staircase with balustrades leads up to a corridor serving the comfortable and renovated bedrooms: a 30m² master suite with private bathroom, a 26m² bedroom with bathroom and a further two bedrooms of 26 and 30m² respectively with bathroom and toilet.

The second floor has a 14m² bedroom, bathroom, sitting room, laundry and a collection of 5 rooms measuring 10-12m² each.

The lodges, north and south, were previously connected by two wings which were removed in the 19th Century. The first lodge houses a guest house with 150m² of renovated space set over two levels (entrance, study/sitting room, kitchenette, 5 bedrooms, two bathrooms, toilets). The second is only partially restored and measures 150m² of space over three levels and enjoys a particularly nice room on the second floor with magnificent original beam work.

The U-shaped outbuildings cover 700m² of ground space and include an independent apartment carrying the charm of old with an entrance hall with bread oven, sitting room, living room with fireplace, dining area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and toilet. Access to the rear leads to the relaxation areas with stables, saddle room, a 50m² space, barn and workshop. Possibility exists to create an independent apartment above.

This splendid property is only 1h30 from Paris Porte d’Italie by motorway and 1h13 by train direct to the Gare de Lyon.
