Ven­tur­ing into the château prop­erty mar­ket al­lows you to see prop­er­ties that have stood for cen­turies and wit­nessed the pas­sage of his­tory with a cap­i­tal H. But some have a his­tory of another kind – one of a fam­ily who has lived there for gen­er­a­tions, pass­ing down the prop­erty to a long line of de­scen­dants. Amaz­ingly, this prop­erty near Cou­longes-sur-l’au­tize was owned by the same fam­ily from the 14th cen­tury to the early 21st.

The cur­rent château was built in the early 20th cen­tury and it’s the third cas­tle on the site. It sits in 5ha of land with a lake, woods and swim­ming pool. Far-reach­ing views of the nearby vil­lage and coun­try­side can be en­joyed from the château’s ter­raced roof. The main house has five bed­rooms and three bath­rooms but there is a lot of space on the sec­ond floor to cre­ate fur­ther ac­com­mo­da­tion.

In the grounds, you’ll find a hunt­ing lodge in need of restora­tion, a large or­angerie with po­ten­tial for con­ver­sion into guest ac­com­mo­da­tion, a pool house and a lit­tle sep­a­rate tower. legget­tfrance.com
