€1,275,000 Guide price
Marvellous classical 18th C. country Chateau with its typical 'fronton' or pediment surmounting the centre of the main facade and with all the graceful and unpretentious elements of a country house of that period. The property served as a military convalescent home after the war and lost the outbuildings which surrounded the property. Nevertheless 3.8 hectares of meadow and fine trees surround the property and wait to be redesigned into an English style park. Beyond numerous uncultivated pastures complete the estate.
