Located on the edge of the “forêt dominiale”, within a short drive to both Poitiers centre and Futuroscope places this impressive family residence in an ideal location for enjoying country life whilst still retaining excellent access to a vast selection of amenities along with excellent rental potential. The neighbouring forest of nearly 7000 hectares permits a wealth of activities from horse riding to mushroom collecting and provides an abundance of nature which overflows into the estate of this chateau. The chateau and outbuildings have been lovingly renovated and today offer luxury accommodation with style and taste for family and guests.
This period home has undergone a complete makeover and restoration under the direction of the current owners and today offers in the region of 550m² of living space spread over 2 floors with scope to create more in the impressive attic space or in the adjoining stone building. Sizeable reception rooms (lounge and dining hall) on the ground floor enjoy views over the pond and valley beyond as does the modern kitchen next to the study. The al-fresco terrace also benefits from those super views over the valley park and pond. Climbing the well troden stone stairs we discover the sleeping accommodation divided into two parts providing 2 bedrooms and a shared bathroom for the visiting family and a further 3 bedrooms each one with en-suite facilities and garden views accessed via an original corridor with views over the courtyard. The stairs continue up to the attic ripe for conversion with enormous potential for further accommodation space.
Within the estate are two separate guest lodges: a 3 bedroom self contained gite with 2 bathrooms and vaulted lounge/kitchen area and a further 2 bedroom lodging with lounge/kitchen area. Both of these rent out exceptionally well and there is scope for a respectful income to be generated from them if required. The purpose built stable block provides 6 stables with plenty of extra space for the equipment and machinery. There is a charming pool in a quiet corner offering space to relax and unwind whilst keeping the formal courtyard free to receive your guests. Electric gates keep the property free from prying eyes and within the private woodland that is part of the estate the owners have created walks and bridleways to be explored on horseback or foot. Direct access to the “forêt dominiale” provides a number of paths and hacks to enjoy.
A very nicely presented family home in an excellent location. Viewing is highly recommended.
