Christie's International Real Estate is honoured to present this beautiful 18th century château and its 38 hectare domaine as an exclusive listing. It is situated in one of the most stunning and sought after areas of France, in the 'Golden Triangle' of the Dordogne, near Sarlat. The domaine, which is in a commanding position overlooking the Céou Valley, is entered from a 2 kilometre driveway that winds up to the top of the hill through beautiful woodland, and guarantees privacy and tranquillity. The property consists of an 18th century château with 9 bedrooms, a charming and characterful guest house with 15th century origins and 3 bedrooms, a studio apartment, a guardian's house, extensive outbuildings and a pigeon tower. The ensemble is completed with an infinity swimming pool and tennis court. The grounds include meadows and woodland, an orchard, a maze and a spring. The château boasts a symmetric layout and nicely proportioned rooms. Its classic entrance hall greets you with its stone floors, and a stone staircase with sculpted ironwork that serves all floors. This gives on to the elegant salon on one side and the beautiful dining room on the other. The salon has parquet flooring, painted wood panelling, a fireplace, traditional French stretched fabric wall coverings, and has beautiful light due to the multiple double aspect windows. This leads to the large study with stone floors and a stone fireplace. The dining room also has parquet flooring, wood panelling and built-in glass cabinets. It leads through to the fully equipped kitchen and pantry area, and through to the boot room with a vaulted ceiling, and a large games room also with a vaulted ceiling that originally served as the kitchen, also with a vaulted ceiling as well as a stone fireplace, . On the first floor there are four very light and spacious main bedrooms, all with fireplaces, one with a sink, and another with a shower-room. There are also two smaller bedrooms, and two family bathrooms. The second floor has three bedrooms, two with sink and bidet, as well as a family bathroom, and two unrenovated bedrooms, one with potential as a stunning penthouse room. The recently fully renovated guest house is entered by steps up to a terrace with a pisé (small set stone) floor with fantastic views over the valley. This leads in to the very large and light living room with windows on all sides, parquet floor, and a large stone fireplace. This opens to the contemporary style kitchen, and entrance hall which accesses the first floor with two bedrooms and a family bathroom, and down to the garden level with the third bedroom and bathroom. The studio has a beautiful high vaulted ceiling in the main room, and there is a kitchenette and bathroom, all on ground floor level. The rest of the building also has potential to covert. The guardian's house has a kitchen, living room, WC and a large workshop area on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. There is an ensemble of attractive stone outbuildings in a U-shape which formerly housed the winemaking shed when the property had vines which includes a large vaulted wine cellar. There are also stables that currently house the three live-in donkeys. The pool area is secluded from the rest of the buildings and offers an infinity pool with beautiful views over the valley, a large terrace for sun-bathing, and small outbuildings that serve as a pool house, and one of which houses a bread oven. This is an exceptional and rare opportunity to acquire one of the most beautiful domaines in the area, in a magical location, with magnificent views over unspoilt countryside in a UNESCO classified zone. The domaine has managed to keep its charm and authenticity and offers a true château living experience for the lucky future owners. 360° virtual visits of château and guest house available on request
