A spectacular offering between Poitiers and Niort including a magnificent 18th century French Château currently operating as a boutique hotel is on the market for €3,710,000 ($4,112,626 USD).
The estate is made up of 276 acres with 98 acres of fenced meadows and 148 acres of woodland with a private chapel, two large independent houses and vast outbuildings.
The property also includes extensive equestrian options with paddocks, an arena and stables.
Built c.1710 by Marie Metayer, the château, its south wing and some of the outbuildings are listed as historical buildings and retain many of the original period features, including parquet flooring, fireplaces, moulding and wood panels.
There is more than 11,300 square feet of space over three levels with a formal entrance hall, drawing room, snooker room, formal dining hall, professional kitchen and 22 bedrooms and 22 bathrooms. The château currently operates as Le Domaine Curzay and is a popular venue for an array of private and professional events.
Despite its size, the château has the feeling of a manageable family home and could very well be converted back into a private residence.
