Detailed description

Embrace the timeless allure of chateau living in the heart of a vibrant French village, just moments from Narbonne and a mere 22-minute drive to the Mediterranean shores. Ideally located along a main road, this majestic chateau built in 1872, benefits from easy access to local amenities while maintaining exclusive privacy for its residents.

As you return from the bakery, strolling through the village with a crisp baguette cradled in your arms, the chateau remains coy, hidden from the main road, inviting you into a world of serenity beyond its gates. Step through and feel the ambiance shift, transporting you to an oasis of tranquility amidst a 2500 m2 lush garden. Here, the melody of birdsong dances in the air, while the gentle Mediterranean sun bathes the surroundings, creating the perfect setting for year-round al fresco dining.

Enter the chateau and be greeted by an awe-inspiring hallway adorned with original floor tiles, its lofty ceilings reaching a grand 4 meters high. Stained glass doors beckon you into a realm of elegance and refinement, where each room tells a story of its own. To your right, discover the expansive 88 square meter salon, adorned with exquisite furnishings befitting a chateau of such grandeur. Sunlight floods through the southern windows, casting a warm glow upon the space. At the conclusion of the salon, a door leads to a charming 16.8 m2 kitchen with wooden cabinets, complemented by its own 3 m2 utility room.

Continuing your journey, a cozy 19 m2 salon awaits, complete with a magnificent fireplace, promising snug evenings by the hearth during the winter months. Also on this wing of the hallway discover three generously-sized bedrooms (13, 14, and 16 m2), accompanied by a 5 m2 bathroom and a convenient separate toilet.

Ascend the wide stone staircase to the first floor, where a world of comfort awaits. French doors open onto a south-east facing balcony, offering a picturesque spot to savor freshly baked croissants amidst the morning sunshine. Here, a spacious living room (50 m2), kitchen (10 m2) with built-in oven and microwave oven and a dishwasher, and three bedrooms (15, 15 and 21 m2), each with its own bathroom, provide ample space for relaxation and indulgence.

Venture further to the second floor, where 3 additional bedrooms (15, 16 and 34 m2), a 15 m2 bathroom, and a 9 m2 dressing room/office await. While the ground floor and first floor offer immediate comfort and charm, the second floor presents an exciting opportunity for personalization and enhancement. With a touch of renovation, this level can be transformed into a space of boundless potential, tailored to suit your unique vision and lifestyle. Embrace the opportunity to breathe new life into this historic chateau, crafting a haven that reflects your individual taste and preferences.

Descend to the basement, where echoes of the past linger in the remnants of a bar frequented by the likes of Charles Trenet and Brigitte Bardot. This floor presents an enticing canvas awaiting your creative touch. Imagine transforming this space into your very own sanctuary—a luxurious spa where relaxation reigns supreme, an indoor swimming pool or perhaps a chic entertainment hub complete with a stylish bar for hosting unforgettable gatherings. With the option to incorporate a home cinema, the possibilities for personalized indulgence are endless.

Outside, a garage awaits, offering convenient parking, while the expansive garden beckons with the promise of a future swimming pool. The garage door requires replacement, and the garage may benefit from renovation in the near future.

The potential of this remarkable chateau is limitless, whether as a private sanctuary, a charming bed and breakfast, a multi-generational retreat or a triple-apartment building the potential to generate rental income. While retaining its historic charm, this chateau presents an opportunity for modernization, with kitchens and bathrooms showcasing vintage character awaiting your personal touch.
