R038 Exceptional Chateau in commanding position - Perigord Noir, Dordogne, Aquitaine

One of the most impressive chateaux to come onto the market this century, offering the very best in fine chateau living. Located at the end of a very long drive that climbs through the woods, the first building that one comes across is the stable block - itself a wonderful building that accommodates six horses, the chateau managers office and independent accommodation for two staff. Beyond one can see the Barbican where the portcullis and drawbridge were once housed - beyond which the towers and turrets of the main chateau soar to dominate the outcrop on which they are perched. The interior is similarly remarkable – from the cathedral-like entrance hall leading to the central atrium that rises all four floors, to the grand banquet hall, the vaulted kitchen, and the array of luxury bedrooms and bathrooms, the media and games rooms. In addition to the stable block, there is plenty of additional accommodation – guests have a three-bedroom house with all the usual facilities, and a separate guardian’s cottage is discreetly located in the park. The indoor heated swimming pool is huge and complemented by a similarly large and luxurious summer kitchen and living / dining area, and a large covered horse manege converts easily to an indoor tennis court – there is an exterior hard tennis court in addition. A must-see!
