Sale Mansion La Châtre - 8 bedrooms
36400 - La Châtre
To the south of Châteauroux/ in the heart of Berry, which saw the birth of the most beautiful works of the novelist George Sand and those of the talented pianist Frédéric Chopin, lives on the soul of the sulphurous couple from romantic France of the 19th century.
It is in the historic center of this small provincial town of La Châtre that you can discover this residence whose pedestrian door dates from 1710. This elegant private mansion is the last of the 18th century in the town to retain its courtyard and garden. On the street side, the gate opens onto a main courtyard surrounded by outbuildings and reveals a beautiful double-flight staircase. On the garden side protected by its high walls, it is the promise of moments of sweetness and well-being in a green, calm and relaxing setting, with the timeless charm of a pretty gazebo. An underground passage connects the two spaces, courtyard and garden.
The architecture of the building is both sober and rich in details such as the ridge gallery which punctuates the slate roof or the curved pediment dormer windows adorned with ball groynes.
The interior is no exception. The entrance is through and the imposing stone staircase of the large hall under which there is a WC, is just magnificent. The beautiful patina of the steps testifies to its history.
On the right a vestibule leads to the billiard room, an office and two adjoining rooms. Opposite, the large living room is lit on both sides by large windows. The fireplace with its mirror opposite, the high ceiling enhanced with moldings and the Hungarian point parquet with the "Versailles" motif contribute to the elegance and charm of the house. The double doors open onto the equally warm dining room with direct access to the garden. The fireplace is surmounted by a pretty trumeau and the beautiful Louis XV style wall cupboards offer valuable storage. As an extension, an office looking like a false tower overlooks the courtyard.
Access to the kitchen is via the clearance of the second staircase reserved at the time for the staff of the office. It is installed in the wing at right angles to the main body and also communicates with the garden and the summer terrace. In a perfectly assumed contemporary style, it is a living room in its own right illuminated by the rays of the sun from the first hours of the day.
As an extension of this, the part formerly reserved for the owner's liberal activity is converted into a laundry room, dressing room and gym with WC. The discreet independent entrance on the street offers the possibility of a separate apartment from the house.
Upstairs, the spacious central landing on cement tiles sets the tone. The unobstructed view is splendid and the light is omnipresent. Four bedrooms are distributed by the respective corridors. The master bedroom has a large dressing room and its private bathroom.
In the part at right angles, the living room-library is a pleasant space to live in in a more intimate atmosphere. As an extension of this one accesses a beautiful room transformed into an artist's studio and equipped with a bay window over its entire length with a magnificent view overlooking the garden. Three rooms including a shower room and WC are annexed to it. The opportunity to create a suite to receive a friend or family member.
A second floor reserves an attic bedroom with its private bathroom and access to the attic which can still be converted for the more ambitious.
Cellars, boiler room (heat pump by geothermal energy), garages with attic, carport and adjoining rooms complete this exceptional property.
More than just a property, it is a unique opportunity to own an elegant 18th century residence with all the space that a large family could need coupled with a professional project.
The opportunity of a life in the countryside while being connected to one's time in the heart of a city.
