FULL DESCRIPTION
This large country estate was built around 1850 on 10.5 hectares of land.

The attractive main house, built in the Italian style, is tastefully renovated over 2 floors.

On the lower ground floor is the old servants' kitchen and a boiler room. (Solar panels are being installed to heat the water in the summer months) A vaulted wine cave, and a gym equipped with sauna, jacuzzi and hammam spa, a housekeepers bedroom and bathroom and access to full height cellars and workshop with exterior access.
On the main floor a lovely light and bright reception hall, library, kitchen, salon,study and dining room lead to a staircase with original painted plaster. To the first floor (on the half landing a wc and access to the back staircase leading to the annex with 2 bedrooms and the gite). On the first floor a wide "library" corridor with 4 large ensuite double bedrooms and an adjoining smaller 5th bedroom with access onto a corridor with wc.

On the 2nd floor a further 196m² of habitable space in the process of renovation with restored exposed beams, 2 bedrooms with a functional bathroom, a study, and a lounge area, plus 2 further bedrooms and shower rooms to finish ( plumbing etc. all in place).

Next to the main house and accessible from the back staircase or outside and through the gravelled courtyard, there is the gite/loft of 200m² spread over 2 floors, with 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and an ensuite shower room. It sleeps 13 with the potential for 16 by opening the 2 annex ensuite bedrooms (one with kitchenette and stairs to a ground floor terrace). There is a spacious lounge with a fireplace, a large dining kitchen, and TV area. All are serviced by fuel central heating system, a wood fire and a 200L water heater) The gite currently rents for €3900 per week.

From the lounge on the first floor, there is also access to a large space the owners are planning to convert into a function room (312m²); the ground floor with its 2 wine vats will be used for car parking and storage. Next to the entrance to gite is a private walled courtyard with 2 ancient wine presses on either side.

To the left of the property,there are several stone-built farm buildings: workers' cottages, garages, storerooms and workshops. 4/5 cottages are currently rented long-term and bring a healthy income. There is also a 2 storey stables to renovate, and a barn which currently is storing farm equipment. A further building is currently under renovation with 3 floors and could work beautifully as a function room and car park or something else?

To the right of the main property is the chapel built in 1885 it is built in a 15th-century gothic style.This is too dangerous to keep open at the moment but would provide a wonderful backdrop for weddings and events.

Behind this the owners have plans for a large marquee for events which would be close to the old servants' kitchen, for the catering services to use. In front of the property is a 14x7m swimming pool (chlorine) with a concertina glass cover and a newly tiled sun terrace. Also a small lake with weeping willow. In the immediate grounds are plane trees, cedar and an enormous magnolia tree. The owners have plans to create a rose garden in front the steps leading to the main entrance.

Road safety permitting, the old gates to the property could be reinstated with a long gravel drive leading to the main house..this would give the gite and dependencies separate access.
