12th Century Chateau with 5 Bed B&B and indoor pool, independent 2 bed Gite, land of 1.7 Ha, Farmhouse, outbuildings and indoor sand arena
What an amazing opportunity to buy your very own Château. The possiblities and potential for this amazing property are boundless. Situated just outside Chef Boutonne, the château has been run as a successful B&B with independant holiday gite for the last 15 years by the owners, it is only because of ill-health that the château is now for sale. Approached by a sweeping gravel drive, past a large meadow ideal for keeping horses, through the gardens, mainly laid to lawn with mature trees, and up to the Château. There is also a run of 12th century outbuildings including a super farmhouse of approx 300 sqm with a new slate roof sensitively restored after a fire in 2005. The 2 bed gite and various other outbuildings including a former laundry room, garages, stables, workshop, a hay barn and a fabulous indoor equestrian sand arena with 9 boxes.
So lets start with the Château, originally owned by the Fleury Michon family, which offers 405 sqm of living space over 3 floors plus an attic the length of the château and comprises :
Ground floor : entrance into the large central hall with original staircase, 2 large reception rooms with marble fireplaces, large kitchen of 40 sqm, and a gym off which is the heated indoor pool with doors out to the sun terrace.
1st floor : There are 4 guest bedrooms : a family room, triple room and 2 double rooms, all with ensuites, a large landing with linen-room above the entrance.
2nd floor : to one side a 5th guest bedroom with ensuite, to the other the owners living accomodation which includes : a lounge, 2 bedrooms and family bathroom.
3rd floor : the flooring needs attention, but there are 4 full height rooms waiting to be exploited.
Outside and across the drive is the stunning Farmhouse of approx 300 sqm, with rooms over 3 floors, a new slate roof recreated by artisans, and a vaulted cellar with secret tunnels that according to history lead into the centre of Chef Boutonne itself. Bundles of opportunity here. Part renovated after the fire in 2005, there is an events room of 44 sqm, recently used as a special occassion dining room and for weddings and a large room adjoining of 49 sqm which would make a fabulous kitchen. 2 further large rooms on the 1st floor where you will find the « chocolate factory », as the current owner is also a chocolatier ! The 2nd floor is in the stunning roof space, has full height and extends over the adjoining outbuildings. Again the possibilities are endless !
At the end of the run of outbuildings is the traditional stone Gite of approx 80sqm, fully fitted and equipped, with living room and corner kitchen downstairs and 2 bedrooms and a shower room upstairs.
In addition, there is the original orangerie to renovate, a veggie plot, a chicken run complete with chickens and a tennis court.
The property sits on 17 930 sqm of parkland and meadow, is fully enclosed and can be sold as a « turn-key » business with all furniture and linen included, ready to be up and running the very next day.
There is also the potential to buy 2 further plots of land close by, ideal for horses and hay, of 7 and 8 Ha each.
There is work to be done in refreshing certain areas, finishing the work in the farmhouse, renovating the orangerie and upgrading the sanitation system, but thats what makes it your own. Your very own Château.
