€2.95m Gironde, FRANCE.  Moated Fairytale Chateau For Sale

This Moated Fairytale Chateau is for sale with Maxwell Baynes – Christie's International Real Estate

“Situated in the world-renowned Bordeaux and St Emilion region, and only 30 minutes from Bordeaux International airport, this enchanting ten-bedroom fairy-tale chateau, features a spring-fed moat that is simply magical. Tucked away in a private, country estate, within minutes of a charming village, the chateau has a rich history dating back to 1346 and possibly further. Undergoing extensive renovations in 2013, the chateau offers close to 900m² of habitable living space, including ten bedrooms and suites.

With a commanding staircase rising from the entrance reception area, and a dining room with doors leading to a south-facing terrace, the chateau also features a large kitchen, salon and vaulted cellar. Framed by two grand towers that date back to its 14th Century origins, it is notably one of the oldest properties in the Gironde. Complete with a fascinating royal-linked past, this chateau is still a spacious, comfortable, light-filled family home.

The estate of just under 4ha of parkland features many ancient and protected trees and a sparkling, heated swimming pool. Surrounding the chateau is a spring-fed moat, full of fish and wildlife. Access to the property is by a small bridge leading to a well-maintained courtyard garden. There is ample car parking and the parkland is fenced and secure.
This is an exceptional opportunity to buy a unique chateau with its very own moat. Properties such as this are very rare, especially given its proximity to Bordeaux and its airport”.
