Situated in a small village just 5 minutes from the center of Fontenay le Comte this lovely petite chateau with its impressive tower offers 8 bedrooms, three reception rooms, large enclosed gardens and swimming pool. Easy access to the autoroute (A87) and 50 minutes to La Rochelle airport and fast train (TGV) station direct to Paris.

With around 300m² of habitable space, it comprises a large entrance corridor at the end of which there is a lovely wooden staircase giving access the upper floors.
A door to the left takes you into a beautiful dining room with a marble fire place and tiled floor. The door to the right enters a double sitting room separated by an arch in the middle. The floors have wooden parquet floors and there is an impressive painting from one of Monet's pupils on one salon wall. On this level the round tower houses the library. Next to the the staircase a door takes you into the fitted kitchen and a small laundry room.

The first and second floors are laid out in exactly the same way, which is: from the landing/corridor there are two large bedrooms to the left and two large bedrooms (one with en-suite shower room in the tower) to the right and a bathroom/WC at the end of the corridor.
On the second floor, the two bedrooms on the right are set to be used as a family bedroom with an arch between the two rooms.
All the floors in the bedrooms (except one) have wooden floorboards.
Most of the ground floor rooms and bedrooms have fabric on the walls.

The property has been built on over 1 acre of land with some of the garden having been laid to lawn, another part occupied by a small woodland with mature trees and shrubs, there is a 9 x 4.5m swimming pool at the bottom and parking space at the front.

Furthermore there are some nice outbuildings, one being barn type, which has four major rooms and could easily be converted into a separate house on two levels.
There is also an interesting underground large cellar, an aviary and a shed for wood.

The property is very private behind the large iron gates.
Situated in a hamlet of a few houses, it in only 5 minutes away from the beautiful market town of Fontenay-le-Comte where you will not only find a good shopping center, but also schools, a hospital and all major large supermarkets.
