18th Century Chateau in Périgueux, France

Listing Description

"First built in 1143, the château was re-built in 1740. Since that time it has never been modified and retains all its original features, contents and early 18th century elegant charm. Currently the château enjoys 25 bedrooms, a suitably noble entrance hall, with a sweeping stone staircase and classic tiled floor. The Grand Salon is over 64m2 with doors leading to a large terrace with commanding views over the rolling countryside. There is also a private theatre, library and a spectacular dining/banqueting hall. This is a Château where entertaining has considerable importance. The large kitchen is in the basement and there are extensive cellars with subterranean passages. The new stable block is of the highest quality, with a newly refurbished grooms apartment, horse shower, tack room and office. The estate offers over 37km of private tracks. As you can see, this is a very special property and will be sold with many of the contents, made specifically for the family, displaying the family crest. The tapestries were hand-created in Aubusson and are of world importance."

    I linked to the agency site above for their 360 tour. Use the drop downs on their site to view different exterior spots including the fabulous entrance hall.

    Truly a residence for someone who wants to play the role of ‘Le Grand Seigneur’. The private theatre is almost beyond description….as well as the chapel. Exquisite taste shown in all the furnishings & fabrics! The ability to purchase such a property makes one lust for the lost surrounding formal gardens. Yet if one could afford the ‘Maison’ maintenance these could be recreated in some fashion.
