Beautiful 18th century castle, surrounded by Chablis vineyards, at just 2km from the Chablis high street, privacy guaranteed by enclosed plot. Renovated in 2008 with the best materials. With a grand salon, large dining room, and 5 suites. Annex with extra cellars offers development potential.
This beautiful castle has been renovated with taste and minute detail; respecting local customs and local materials. High ceilings and windows give light to all rooms. Grand hall with stone staircase welcomes you to the castle. Large burgundy stone fire places, vaulted cellars, typical coloured ‘tuiles plat’ on the roof, front piece decorated with the blazon of the castle, combination parquet floors & clay tiles and double vaulted cellars are just some of the examples for this unique property.
The detail has also been continued outside, with a beautiful fountain, automatic gates, and lights to illuminate this magnificent castle. The gardens have grand mature trees, and the many statutes and gazebo make this a delight to walk in.
Entrance is up some stone steps, to open into a grand hall with local white burgundy stone floors and wide stone stairway leading up. The floor is decorated with pink cabochons. The high oak doors lead left to a hallway with downstairs bedroom and salon at the end. To the right the dining room and then the kitchen.
The salon is situated in the south west wing of the castle. Its high ceilings and high windows, and size of 42m2, make it a light and grand reception area. It overlooks the garden with windows on three sides. The floor is a combination of oak beams and original clay tiles. Grand fire place.
The grand kitchen is in the north west wing of the castle. The kitchen well-furnished and equipped with all modern comforts respecting the style of the castle. On the floor red clay tiles (tomettes) and beamed ceilings promoting all the wines of burgundy. Behind the kitchen, up some steps a utility area with laundry and storage area. Here also stone steps down to the cellars.
The dining room is in between the kitchen and the entrance hall. The dining room features a large burgundy fire place. Next to the fire place an ingenious way to store the wood in a trolley in its own cupboard. Windows on both side look upon the garden and the back garden with well and shaded areas
On the right wing also the downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
Off the hallway a cloak room with toilet.
Upstairs four bedrooms. The bedroom suite above the salon on the south west wing has the same layout with windows on all three sides, and a large bathroom with toilet. On the other side above the kitchen, with its own staircase, is a family room with high ceilings, bathroom and an extra sleeping area in a mezzanine. The bedrooms in the middle share a family bathroom, but there is enough space to make them both independent and with their own bathroom.
All bedroom are fully furnished with curtains and wall to wall carpets.
The vaulted cellar is reached via the staircase in the kitchen, here a first area with bread oven and then a storage area, to one end the utility space with mains gas boiler. The private wine cellar has a double access: inside via the kitchen, but also via its dedicated outside door.
To the far side of the plot, is the large building offering a foot print of 350m2. This building with to the front arched accesses, use to be the stables of the castle and later on the cuverie (wine making area). Today it is only partly developed to offer a garage with automatic doors and a garden shed area. Under the building are large vaulted cellars.
The park has been designed to give privacy but also to favour the views. From the front entrance views of the wine fields infant, border by majestic trees on both side. To the back shaded areas. To the side a gazebo looking at the buildings and the grand cru vies on the hills to the back. Doted here and there are wild life and classic statutes giving you a great nature feeling. All the garden decoration is part of the sale
A wonderful castle for those that appreciate quality and wine
