Grand Designs – Chateau Style

A magnificent period chateau built in pale stone and set on a superb secluded site, with origins in the 16C and many fine Renaissance features. An exciting project exists to complete internal works and extend the building. Approached by a private 500-metre driveway and set on its own promontory, the chateau faces south over rolling countryside enjoying extensive views to the distant Pyrenees. Reclaimed from a virtual ruin in the 1960’s most of the main structural and planning works have been completed. Architect drawings exist to complete the interior fitting out with an ambitious extension project to create 3 grand reception rooms and 5 bedroom-bathroom suites. A magnificent feature is the original stone spiral staircase which links the main salons on ground and first floor which are in excess of 60sqm. 6 hectares of land which include the approach drive and immediate grounds, scrub and arable land running down to the south. Landscaping and selective clearing would enhance the specimen trees. An open area to the west provides an ideal site for a swimming pool or tennis court.
