This stunning 17 bedroom chateau is nestled in the breathtaking countryside of Languedoc-Roussillon, Aude, Carcassonne, France. Boasting nearly 26 acres of rolling hills and lush meadows, this is a peaceful haven just a short drive from the historic town of Carcassonne. The current owners have lovingly restored the chateau with a 3 storey, 11 bedroom Italian style house with a gym, sauna and Jacuzzi. There is also a 6 bedroom gite, 4/5 cottages, equestrian facilities and various outbuildings.

The lower ground floor has an old servants' kitchen, a boiler room and a vaulted wine cellar. There are plans to install solar panels to heat the water during the summer months. The main floor boasts a light and bright reception hall, library, kitchen, living room, study and dining room that lead to a staircase with original painted plaster.

On the first floor, there is a wide "library" corridor with four large en-suite double bedrooms and an adjoining smaller fifth bedroom with access to a corridor and WC. In the process of renovation on the second floor is 196m2 of habitable space that includes two bedrooms with a functional bathroom, a study and a living room area, plus two further bedrooms and shower rooms that need some finishing touches.

Next to the main house is the gite/loft of 200m2 spread over 2 floors, with 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and one en-suite shower room. It sleeps 13 but can accommodate up to 16 with the addition of two annex en-suite bedrooms, one with a kitchenette and stairs to a ground floor terrace. There is also a spacious living room with a fireplace, a large dining kitchen and a TV area. All areas are serviced by fuel central heating system, a wood fire and a 200L water heater. The gite currently rents for EUR3900 per week.

Surrounding the property are several stone-built dependencies ranging from workers' cottages, garages, storerooms and workshops. Four or five cottages are currently rented long-term and bring a healthy income. There is also a two storey stable that needs some renovation work and a barn that is used for storing farm equipment. Additionally, there is a building with three floors currently under renovation that could be converted into a function room and car park.

At the entrance of the estate, there is an old chapel built in 1885 in a 15th century gothic style that is too dangerous to keep open at the moment but would make a beautiful backdrop for weddings and events. The owners have plans to build a marquee near the old servants' kitchen for catering services and potentially reinstate the old gates to the property with a long gravel drive leading to the main house.

Relax in the 14 x 7m swimming pool (chlorine) with a concertina glass cover and tiled sun terrace or take in the views of the far reaching countryside from the peaceful location near Carcassonne. There is a small lake with a weeping willow and various trees such as plane trees, cedar and a huge magnolia tree dotting the grounds. The owners also plan to create a rose garden in front of the steps leading to the main entrance.

This is truly a wonderful opportunity to acquire a large historical country estate with plenty of potential to transform it into your own private paradise.
