This stone Château is constructed symmetrically around a central hall way. The volumes and the arrangement of the rooms make it a warm, family sized building, surrounded by hundred-year-old cedars and mature vegetation that give it a graceful majesty.
The distribution of accommodation is over 4 levels - On the ground floor: Entrance hall 23m² with an attractive original tiled floor, ceiling with mouldings and a wonderful wooden staircase to the 1st floor. A large living room facing north and doors to the terrace, also having a fireplace, opening to a library area, which in turn opens to a “summer room”. The set-up at present is with 2 further bedrooms on the ground floor, (one with shower), but one room was originally the formal dining rooms and has a beautiful wooden carved fireplace (dated 1871), an office of 10m².
First floor: you arrive at a landing to observe a wonderful set of “stained glass” windows, a cloakroom with a toilet, a bedroom of 22m² with interior shutters, and a bathroom. Another bedroom 27m² opening on a small balcony with a fireplace (ceiling height 3.26m). A bathroom of 17m² equipped with a basin, a shower and a bath. Further bedroom of 23m², & dressing room of 7m².
Second floor: An area for the landing, several bedrooms and offices.
In semi basement: A room 21m² with tiled floors, stone walls & exposed beams. A cellar of 22m², 2 more cellars, a kitchen of 23m² with original features, doors to the outside and a set of stone stairs. Reserve / store, laundry room of 6m².
Personally, I think that the layout needs to be amended a little to incorporate modern en-suite bathrooms for the bedrooms, and thus the number of bedrooms would be reduced. But this should be achievable without structural changes, something more cosmetic and within the capabilities of a decent plumber.
Numerous original and authentic elements, in particular the flooring, woodwork, cornices, rosettes, & fireplaces.
Situated in an attractive park of about 1.3 ha, with 100 year old trees and a water fountain feature. Small chapel. 2 large terraces, park style gardens with a small swimming pool.
Could be an ideal venue for tourist activities - there are some finishing works required to create an extraordinary ensemble. This exceptional property is suitable for anyone who loves beautiful stone property with the option to live in it privately or to open it as a business. One client has considered adding a very large conservatory to the north side to create a very large addition to the property.
Very close to the golf club at Brive, convenient for the Sncf station, airport and easy connection to the A20 autoroute. The evening views across the illuminated town of Brive are spectacular, and yet you are situated in a peaceful retreat. Brive is a wonderful city with a bustling market, 2 Michelin star restaurants (Castel Novel & La Table d'Olivier), a wonderful theatre (Les Treize Arches) and so much more to offer, such as the Lac du Causse nearby.
