This 7 bedroom castle is located in the Dordogne area of South West France, nestled in an intimate setting of over 2 hectares of parkland with ancient trees, large cedars and conifers. Sitting atop one of the headlands of the city of Brive, the building has a Napoleonic aestheticism, with red stone and brick-work, wood panelling, stained glass windows, cornices, period fireplaces and numerous openings, adding to its authentic charm.
Outside, there is ample space for relaxation with south-facing terraces, a bathing pond and a full north view. The property also boasts a well typical of castles, a shed used as a garage and a small chapel.
The area is steeped in history and culture, with the nearby Magdalenian caves and the Spot project in partnership with Lascaux offering the potential to attract tourists.
Modernisation works are needed to make the most of this beautiful residence, which could be used as a main home, a second home or even develop it into a commercial business. It offers the perfect opportunity to own a castle with all the modern comforts while still preserving the historic charm.
