Good Monday morning! An 18th century chateau to renovate!
Set on 11 acres of private countryside, with nine bedrooms, this country home is located near Fontenday-le-Comte, Vendée, France. I love all the potential this property holds! It would certainly take a significant amount of time and money to restore it to perfect condition but what an amazing home to own, with rich history and gorgeous architecture – I feel like it would be well worth all the effort!
From the listing on Leggett:
The property is located in a small and peaceful commune near Fontenay-le-Comte, overlooking the Vendée. A83 motorway only 8 minutes away, Fontenay-le-Comte 10 minutes (town with all shops and services, supermarket, bus), La Rochelle 40 minutes(TGV train and airport), Nantes 1h10 (international airport, TGV) and Bordeaux 2h30.
This site steeped in history belonged to the Puy du Fou in the 16th century, offers you this castle located near Fontenay-le-Comte. A healthy base to restore completely, the roof and frame are in good condition.
In the Merovingian era, the lord of the existing manor had the right to mint coins. The site has been occupied since a very old date; Roman constructions have been discovered there.
At present the property includes :
On the ground floor: entrance hall, kitchen, dining room, living room, four bedrooms, reception room, pantry, shower room with WC, bathroom, WC.
First floor: a landing leading to four bedrooms.
Attic with view on the countryside.
In the basement: cellar, old kitchen with vegetable garden, wine press, various rooms.
In my opinion, this property full of history is a good base for restoration, with a land of almost 5 HA adjoining not overlooked, set back from the road, very discreet.
