Sumptuous Château de Corrigė with history going back to the 15th century
History is calling. This wonderful Château, set in private grounds with 8 hectares of land and panoramic views over your private lake, is looking for a new owner to carry on a legacy.

Surrounded by a private driveway and gardens, the Château would work perfectly for a large family or to run a luxury holiday business whilst retaining an owner’s accommodation. This could be your “Coup de Coeur”!

Réf : A17374 - EXCLUSIVITY
The entire house has been well maintained and had a sympathetic hand when redecorated to allow you to connect to the original features and walk back in time.
In the tenure of the current owner the Chateau has repaired the roof, installed a new septic tank system, new electrical wiring and plumbing. She is all dressed up and now ready and waiting for her new guardian.
Whether it is strolling the quiet country lanes, exploring the paddock surrounding your own lake or enjoying a bit of exercise in the tennis court this definitely has something for everyone. For some extra luxury, it would be easy to add a large in-ground pool in the gardens.
The central wooden staircase greets you as you set foot into one of the formal entrance foyers and here you should pause and just let the house reach out to you.
Opposite the large country style kitchen (26m) and utility is the formal dining room (29m) with a butler’s pantry that currently serves as a bar. Light streams in from the floor to ceiling doors which can open up in summer to take in the panoramic views of the valley and lake.
The grand salon (57m) features a fantastic wooden parquet with hardwood inlay and again the large French doors and windows flood the room with light. How many formal occasions have been hosted here with guests spilling out to enjoy festivities under the moonlight in the gardens?
Downstairs takes you to the original kitchen area where the wide fireplace and flagstone floors can still be found. Part of this area now hosts the modern central heating system which is both wood and oil fired, as well as a garage.
Each wing of the main house features large sumptuous bedrooms with magnificent views over the country side. Each room has been given its own individual creative attention which creates a distinct personality for the bedrooms and yet blends harmoniously as a whole.
On the first floor this wing houses what is called the Château Suite and consist of 2 bedrooms (29m / 18m) and 2 bathrooms with a central landing and foyer. The current owner uses this as her private apartment.
Central demi-floor and first floor
The Mulberry Suite is situated on the demi-floor between ground and first. This suite features a large bedroom (20m) with a wonderful wooden floor, a small salon and bathroom with shower. It has views over the back garden.
The Pink Room (22m) and the Blue Suite (22m) are situated on the first floor, on either side of the staircase and both overlooking the front garden and the lake. The Pink Room has an en-suite bathroom and the Blue Suite has a private living room and bathroom.
At the top of the stairs you will find a time capsule which is the old servant’s quarters. Magazine covers from 1850’s and sketch prints which were once someone’s treasures now provide a moment of reflection to appreciate the hundreds of years this building has stood.
Will you be the next person to add your legacy to the story? You could probably add a few more bedrooms and bathrooms at this level. It will need lining and decorating but would provide significant potential.
One can almost hear the faint foot fall of children playing in the old servant’s quarters running the length of the top of the house. If only the walls could speak!
North-East Guest Wing
This is a fully self-contained apartment with an open plan ground floor living and kitchen. Upstairs there is a bathroom and two large bedrooms with views over the gardens. This apartment has been lovingly decorated to maintain the original features such as the exposed wide floor boards on the upper floor, the kitchen fireplace and exposed beams in the ceilings. This wing also benefits from the central heating system and has private access.
The Château works perfectly for a large family or for those who may wish to run a luxury accommodation. Located centrally 20 minutes from Limoges airport, Michelin Star restaurant “La Chapelle Saint Martin”, and the Saint Pardoux lake area – you are in the midst of one of the best parts of the Limousin and within striking distance of everything you need.
We invite you to meet this Lady in person and see if she charms you as much as she has stolen our hearts.
