(US $2,079,111)
Orléat, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France
Status: Active

Located 20 minutes from Clermont-Ferrand. Built in the 17th century and owned by the same family since its inception. Offers a living area of approximately 13,000 sq ft.

Nestled in a green setting, the chateau is for sale with about 50 hectares, overlooking a valley with a breathtaking view of the puys chain.

To note its park and its outbuildings, of which a chapel classified ISMH established in the forest.

The greatness of this property can be summed up in the masterpiece: in the spacious gallery of the chateau, there is a masterful alignment of bookcases that have contained unique works among the 60,000 books that have made up this collection. These rooms reflect the atmosphere of the receptions organized by its owner with the men and women of the world of that time: Chateaubriand, Madame de Staël, Blaise Pascal, Lamartine...

The two-story building is topped by mansard-roofed attics and built on a basement; the volumes are imposing and the reception rooms are numerous. The staircase is a work of art in its own right and offers a double ascent in the upper floors. On the first floor, there are a large number of bedrooms.

Outside, close by, there are outbuildings, some of which are habitable and others used for storage; in the woods, at the end of a path, one can see a neo-Romanesque chapel classified as an ISMH. The property is offered with 50ha of adjoining land; it is however possible to add 123ac still adjoining. In a dominant position and overlooking the Chaine des Puys, this estate remains an investment for a large-scale family project or a high-end private complex.

The chateau is 10 minutes from a freeway, it takes 20 minutes to get to Clermont, and 1h10 to Lyon.
