€1.6m Saint-Geniès, FRANCE. Medieval Castle for Sale

This Castle is For Sale With Emile Garcin

Medieval castle for sale near Sarlat. Emblematic of the region, this historical monument is the perfect example of the architecture of the Dordogne and its history. In the village, two old knight's houses of the XIII century, separated by an alley, were connected in the fifteenth century when in 1419 Richard married Jeanne de Salignac Gontaud Biron, bringing him the Lordship dowry.

Completely covered with stones, built with the golden stone of Sarlat, it has admirable architectural elements, stone spiral staircase, fireplaces, arched openings, trefoil windows and mullioned dormer pediment. Its current owners, passionate about the property, have devoted their efforts and many resources to conducting a restoration of the highest quality, retaining most of the original features. Crossing the entrance gate by the old cobbled street that separated the two houses is to enter a unique location from the days of the powerful House of Salignac.

About 650 m². 4 en suite bedrooms and a large dormitory. Several beautiful reception rooms. Professional kitchen. Protected courtyard with high walls for complete privacy. A pool 10 x 3.5m (heated with electric cover) is perfectly integrated in the enclosure.
