French Property News - - Three Of The Best -

Buy­ing a French château is not as unattain­able as you might think and the at­trac­tive prices for French prop­erty ex­tend to many a pres­tige prop­erty and his­tor­i­cal es­tate. In short, you don’t have to be a mil­lion­aire to own a piece of his­tory in France.

For the price of an apart­ment in cen­tral Lon­don or even Paris, you could buy this 16th-cen­tury château on the out­skirts of Cognac set in its own 2.7ha park with a pond fed by the river that borders the grounds. The prop­erty also comes with a pe­riod or­angerie, sta­bles and dove­cote.

The château has been ex­cep­tion­ally well main­tained, hav­ing been up­dated in the late 19th cen­tury and early 20th cen­tury, but the orig­i­nal char­ac­ter of the prop­erty re­mains in­tact with pe­riod fire­places, solid oak stair­cases and beamed ceil­ings. You’ll feel like a king or queen step­ping into the grand en­trance hall which leads to a num­ber of rooms in­clud­ing a grand din­ing room, a for­mal sit­ting room, and a more re­laxed lounge and din­ing area. There are five bed­rooms, all with en­suite bath­rooms and views over the park. You could wel­come guests in the var­i­ous out­build­ings too.
