Property descriptionThis is an exceptionally unique property in the Périgord Vert and a chance to own a truly incomparable horticultural gem. There are 18 hectares of land, with eleven hectares of stunningly beautiful manicured gardens in the 'jardin à la franҫaise' style. At the centre is a grand seven bedroom Chateau, with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
The gardens are the culmination of a lifetime’s ambition of the current owner and they are currently open to the public. There is an array of different features; box hedges, rose gardens and others inspired by various designs including the distinctive Cathedral in nearby Perigueux. There is a large reservoir that provides the water for an in-built, automatic irrigation system. The woodland provides the start for a pretty 2km walk on a pathway around the grounds, taking in all of the various aspects.
The grounds and the Chateau itself are also currently utilised for large events such as weddings, festivals and conferences as well as smaller events such as seminars and classes etc. As such it has had the ground floor renovated, including a professional kitchen. The first floor has seven spacious bedrooms, but is in need of restoration. The rooms provide magnificent views of the gardens and further afield.
The outbuildings include a large converted barn, currently used as the reception and gift shop. It also includes an attached flat/apartment that could easily be a guardian’s residence. There is also a large hangar that is currently home to all of the vehicles and equipment necessary for the upkeep of the grounds.
Perigueux, the capital of Dordogne, is only 20km away. The property is easily accessible, with the N21 very near. Brantôme, the ‘Venice of the Dordogne’ is also close - only 25 minutes’ drive. Bergerac and its international airport is just over an hour by car.
