This Historic 15th Century Chateau is set on the brow of is own private hill in unspoilt countryside, enjoying uninterrupted views south to the Pyrenees.

Built in pale local stone and with Renaissance features, the site is believed to have been used by the French Resistance and a plaque attests to it's significance in rebuilding the laws of the region post WW2. Today the property is ready to complete it's restoration. The majority of structural and planning works have been completed, using traditional finishes including stone detailing, terracotta floors, exposed oak beams, hand-finished plasterwork and rendered walls. The careful addition of new hand-made, oak-frame windows within the thick stone walls creates a harmonious and timeless atmosphere.

Split over 4 floors, with a loft room in the Pigeonnier Tower. the chateau comprises space for 4 large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. 3 large reception rooms, and ample garden space for a swimming pool and a summer terrace.

The main Tower is accessed via two impressive stone staircases

Architect plans have been created to include a complete new wing and tower with an additional 2 bedrooms.

The estate extends to approximately 6 hectares and includes the 500 metre approach drive and immediate grounds, with scrub and arable land running down to the south. Landscaping and selective clearing would enhance the specimen trees around the property. An open area to the west could provide a perfect spot for a swimming pool or tennis court.

An attractive historic property in an unblighted location. Rare opportunity.
