      Ref.4355 : Beautiful french chateau for sale in centre of France.
      Situated in Septaine, the property is a château whose medieval origins lie in its position on a hill overlooking the Indre valley.
      Septaine, also known as Champagne Berrichonne, is a gently rolling region in the south of the former province of Berry, now the department of Indre.
      Located less than three hours from Paris on the A20 motorway, this remarkable château is halfway between the small town of Buzançais and Châteauroux. It also benefits from the proximity of a market town, with all the necessary shops, and above all a golf course reputed to be the best in the region.
      Just a few kilometres away is the wide open space of the Brenne, a region of a thousand ponds where migratory birds stop twice a year. In this regional nature park, animal-watching enthusiasts come to admire rare species, while hunters of waterfowl and big game practice their passion while respecting the natural balance.

      Set in the centre of an English-style park planted with trees, the château is accessed via a driveway that cuts through the curtain of trees that protects it from view. It is an imposing rectangular dwelling with a raised roof and a sundial on the main west-facing façade.
      Three towers, located at the north and south corners and in the centre of the opposite facade, confirm the estate's ancient seigneurial status. The openings in the facades, matching those in the towers and dormer windows in a classic alignment, reinforce the verticality of the whole.
      The conical roofs of the north and south towers and the gable roof of the dwelling are covered in slate. A terrace with balustrade crowns the east tower, giving this side of the property a romantic feel.

      The dwelling has two levels of living space, with additional attic space under the roof frame illuminated by four dormer windows at the front and two at the rear. The total floor surface area, excluding the cellar, is approx. 370 sqm.

      The ground floor comprises an entrance via either the reception room or the stairway; a kitchen with a utility/laundry entrance via the north tower, a through corridor with a stairway leading to the library and parklands, a large lounge and a study. Stairway equipped with a passenger lift.

      1st floor : landing, bedroom with dressing room, bedroom with bathroom, four bedrooms including one with dressing room, bathroom and toilet.
      The traditional layout of the house comprises a first level with large, well-finished rooms for entertaining. The first floor is a private space where the original large areas have been partitioned to create two large bedrooms for the owners and their visitors. Four other smaller bedrooms were probably intended for children.
      The smaller spaces offered by the towers have been cleverly used to create quiet areas: a library, study, dressing room or boudoir.

      2nd floor : High attic space under the roof, lit by dormer windows and suitable for conversion, staircase leading to the roof terrace of the east tower.

      The outbuildings form a hamlet to the north-west of the property. A separate entrance gives access to a rear courtyard bounded by three buildings. A wall separates the space reserved for the outbuilding from that of the caretaker's cottage.
      First building : annex house, in fairly good condition and containing approx. 28 sqm of accommodation ;
      caretaker's cottage, in fairly good condition and containing accommodation of approx. 100 sqm (living room, lounge, four bedrooms, kitchen);
      hangar used as a garage for the caretakers.
      Second building: Shed used as a garage for the annex house;
      Shed for the caretakers.
      Third building: Shed in poor condition.
      Diagnostics have revealed a relatively small presence of lead and asbestos in certain parts of the outbuildings. Further investigations are required.

      The parkland surrounding the residence includes an English-style garden on either side of the dwelling. Beyond, open spaces alternate with groves of local trees. To the east of the property, a wooded area covers the overhang at the foot of which runs a small canal fed by a pond and springs. A footpath runs alongside this canal, where a number of water mirrors give the place a charming character. The property extends to the middle of the canal.
