The grand driveway
The setting is picture-perfect. A central driveway leads through a sweep of parkland, offering an enchanting first view of the chateau.
From the classic white shutters to the bistro-style sun canopy, this house oozes effortless charm.
Make an entrance. The hallway is a striking way to set you up for the tour of this impressive home. The ornate tile flooring is offset with dark wooden furniture. Not one, but two chandeliers illuminate this generous space.
The house boasts a generous kitchen with classic country-style cabinets, a range cooker and traditional terracotta flagstone flooring. With a large kitchen island and enough space for a dining table, this kitchen has all the ingredients for a busy family home.
The main living room is filled with original features. From ornate ceiling roses to the traditional parquet flooring and a grand fireplace this room is full of character.
Double doors from the living room lead out to a beautiful orangery-style room. This space is perfect for achieving that indoor/outdoor living feel. Ornate iron doors lead straight out from here onto the surrounding gardens.
The elegant bedroom features an intricate headboard, bed canopy and statement chandelier. The high ceilings and double french doors make this bedroom feel larger than most living rooms.
The gardens are a dreamy vision of climbing foliage and wild meadow flowers. The epitome of french style, the gardens look beautifully effortless.
The pool is beautifully secluded thanks to surrounding trees and long meadow grasses. The guest cottage is a standalone unit within the grounds that could be developed.
This stunning Chateau is currently on the market with Knight Frank, with an asking price of £826,064.37.
