Plenty of opportunity to generate an income from the existing accommodation within the Chateau and accompanying gites as well potential to further develop the Chateau and the grounds.

Located in the village of Vernoil Le Fourrier close to Samur and within 40 minutes of Angers and 2.5 hours of channel ports

This 19th century Chateau offers at least 6 bedrooms with the potential for additional development across the top floor. There is additional gite accommodation in the separate cottages to the side of the chateau with their own private entrances and gardens. 

The chateau grounds are entered from the road with a sweeping island drive with plenty of parking to the front and side of the chateau.

On the ground floor there is a grand entrance hall and copiously large reception rooms with an immense open fire that provides a substantial focal point in the room There is a very well equipped kitchen with its own entrance suited to both small and large meal preparations. Also downstairs is a substantial bedroom that could quite easily assume an alternate use.

The stairs lead to the first floor lead to 5 good sized bedrooms with many original features retained and great views over the front and back of the chateau. There ares further stairs leading to the top floor which has yet to be developed but could quite easily contain additional bedrooms and living accommodation.

The vaulted cellar and cave area offers substantial storage and again offers some development opportunities.

To the outside of the chateau are the very well laid out cottages that provide for additional accommodation. They are currently let out as a very successful gite business and so provides for an immediate opportunity for income generation.

The large heated swimming pool with its own pump room is accessible to both the cottages and the chateau residents. The gardens to the rear of the chateau are well laid out with two paddocks to the back of the chateau (with separate access) having the potential for development.
