Château - Coulaures (24420) - DORDOGNE € 1,260,000 (HAI)

Réf : A20775SUG24

An unspoilt, authentic, medieval to renaissance castle with outbuildings above a river valley within 25 ha.

High on 25 ha of forest and meadows is this rare and authentic stronghold of the past Comptes de Marqueyssac and home to the present family for 450 years. The main structure and roof are in good condition having been recently reviewed and restored yet maintaining a traditional mellow, aged patina dripping in history. The castle is medieval and later remodelled mainly during the renaissance and wars of religion when the crenelations at the top of the main tower were removed, but there are a number of loopholes dating from this period. Interiorly, it is simple and unspoiled with a rustic kitchen, original parquet flooring, exposed beams, stone fireplaces and staircases. Around the court, there is a mixture of former dwellings with carved stone windowsills and doorways attached to barns.
