Detailed description

The Chateau was built in the typical white stone of the region, and was totally restored in 2007- 2008, with most of the original features salvaged or rebuilt.

On the ground floor the current main entrance opens into an impressive hallway. Original antique terracotta floors. To the right a dining room, which has a large monumental stone open fireplace. There are steps leading down to the fully modernised kitchen and utility rooms, Miele and Bosch appliances, including two dishwashers. A doorway opens out onto the terrace, a beautiful setting for outside dining as it faces west (into the sunset).
To the left, we enter a grand drawing room with renaissance stone archways and another open monumental fireplace. The large windows, high ceilings and a historic renaissance doorway are crowned by sandstone carvings.
At one end of the living room is an enfilade into the library with custom built bookshelves and a views across the gardens.
At the end of the hallway, there is large cloakroom that has a WC.
Stone steps lead down to the kitchen, pantry and utility room, and there is also access to the terrace.

The main ornate staircase from the hall leads to the upstairs rooms although half way up there is a television room. The staircase opens onto an impressive long gallery, an ideal spot for displaying art as it has the wall space, and beautiful natural light.
The master bedroom is off the gallery, it has traditional wooden herringbone parquet, with large windows allowing the light to flood in, and one of the two impressive medieval towers offers the option as a reading room or dressing room, with views over the parkland. The ceilings of these towers are original stone crossvaulted and contain stone sculptures probably dating from the 13th century.
The ensuite bathroom is accessed through antique doors and is beautifully tiled complete with bath, shower and heated towel rail.
