Superb Chateau in Creon d’Armagnac France
Euroresales Property iD – 9824911
Nestled in the south-west of France, on the edge of a village, very private yet not isolated, lies the gorgeous 14th century Chateau le Bourg with its Bordeaux rouge shutters and solid stone facade.
This French village chateau was originally built in 1319 and has been lovingly restored, with the option of another 250m2 to still develop, as apartments, another home, a business, whatever you desire.
This extra space for development requires only the internal walls and flooring to be added – all roofing, insulation, amenities and external structure have been restored/completed.
The Chateau and its terrain has been valued at €900,000, but due to health reasons, the owner needs to sell urgently and has dropped the price significantly for a fast sale.
A newly established 3.7-acre garden sweeps around the building, with a mix of colourful shrubs and wild roses, and willows, oak, liquid amber, blue pine, eucalyptus and maple trees dotted throughout the property.
An original pigeonnaire was restored in the garden and a lake created, replenished via the deep water well, supplying free water to the integrated irrigation system for the garden over the hot summer months.
it is an independent property situated on 1.45 hectares of established garden. The house is a 14th century restored village Chateau called ‘Chateau le Bourg’.
This superb Chateau is located 1 hour from Bordeaux, 1 hour from the beach and 1.5 hours from skiing in the Pyrenees.
On the ground floor, there is a large entrance and tea lounge, and off to the left, one bedroom with an italian wet room, separate guest toilet and laundry room.
Off to the right is the open plan living room with integrated bar counter at the kitchen and a wood pellet fireplace.
There is access to the 100m2 partly covered terrace, barbeque, bonfire pit, built-in dining area and trickling water feature, and a 5-seater Californian Hotspa Jacuzzi with mood lighting, a music system and an integrated cover to retain the heat.
Up the bespoke stone spiral staircase, the home has a library mezzanine level and two large bedrooms. The main room has a walk-in dresser and a ball-and-claw bath in the en-suite.
One level further up is the original pigeonnaire tower, the fourth bedroom accessed by a cast-iron country spiral staircase, the princess’ tower.
Each bedroom has its own en-suite full bathroom.
This secluded and entirely fenced property is secured with electric gates and driveway lighting, with a second entrance on the opposite side of the property. A garden shed stocks all tools needed for the garden’s upkeep, and there is a workshop with all the tools necessary.
There are discreet garden spot lights which can be activated when desired for a beautifully lit up garden at night.
The second part of the home hosts a fully equipped gym and a salon/office, with a waiting room. The home is furnished with a slightly eclectic taste, a mix of old and new, with beautifully vaulted exposed oak ceilings.
All windows and doors are double-glazed, keeping the home cosy in winter and cool in summer. The heating for the winter months is underfloor on the ground floor, and there are cast-iron radiators upstairs.
The chateau will be left fully furnished and fully equipped.
