Property Description

This 19th century chateau in immaculate condition is set in 13 acre walled garden and situated on the edge of a small village, well located for Toulouse, the SW of France and Spain. This rare property offering boasting 880 square meters of luxurious living with potential to create a bespoke family home, boutique hotel or luxury Bed & Breakfast, briefly consists of 4 large reception rooms on the main floor with 3 bedroom suites and office on the first floor and a further 3 bedroom suites and caretakers apartment on the 2nd floor. In addition, there's a basement of over 240 square meters ripe for conversion into a gym/spa or further receptions/cinema rooms etc. The Accommodation The ground floor is slightly raised and accessed by a 'perron' staircase affording superb views over the gardens. Entering the main south facing door we have the principal reception room with its bar and doors leading to further reception rooms, the 'Grande Salon' beyond is divided into a luxurious dining room and a cosy drawing room/snug area with fireplace. Beyond this is the 'dome' room with its ceiling lantern and windows to three sides overlooking the garden. The 'small salon' is to the right of the reception with windows south and beautiful white marble fireplace. All rooms are beautifully and sumptuously decorated in keeping with the nature of the chateau. The main kitchen is in the converted orangery a superb space in which to cook and entertain informally. It is well equipped as one would imagine with a feature fireplace rescued from a grand Parisian hotel. To the north is a house cloakroom and utility area as well as a private masters access to the master bedroom suite. The area to the west of the main living area houses the original kitchen, service entrance main staircase, butlers staircase, office and cloakroom. There is potential here to install a lift. The main staircase is in carved oak with hand detailed panelling and stops at the first floor. There are 5 main rooms on the first floor, all could be en suite bedrooms but the current owners have tailored the rooms to their needs and have three bedroom suites including the superb master bedroom, an enormous dressing room and a south facing office. To go to the top floor we take the butlers staircase previously mentioned, from the first floor up it is in carved stone. There are three bedroom suites on the 2nd floor, all comfortable but slightly smaller than on the first floor. The gardians apartment is at the further end of the building from the butlers staircase and is entirely self contained offering 123 square meters of space with entrance hallway, kitchen, sitting room, dining room, en suite bedroom and laundry room. In the attic above, reached via a smaller staircase is an oratory and store. The basement is divided into 8 main rooms and several decades ago served as a nightclub, the decor still remains. As well as these rooms is a workshop, cellar and boiler room for the chateau's central heating boiler. the cellar would make a superb hobby area, cinema, gym and spa offering 240 square meters of useable space. Outside The beautiful park like grounds that surround the chateau on all sides are fully walled and have three main gated entrances, the principal entrance has a tarmacadam circular driveway leading to the chateau passing superb centuries old trees. The main facade looks down a tree lined lawn to another of the gates whilst the third looks north over the Garonne river on whose right bank the chateau is situated. The pool is salt water treated and is set in a secluded area behind hedges for ultimate privacy and has large terraces surrounding it. A wooden garage and store complete the garden. En conclusion A wonderful property offering luxury on a human scale, close to Toulouse and its airport and train links, close to Spain and the Pyrenees for skiing and walking all set in a quiet and peaceful area with very good restaurants, shopping and services close by.
