Characterful Château to sale - Orange at 30 mn away
At the heart of the Rhône Valley, this characterful Château is located within a touristic area, at the foot of an authentic village. Set on a South/South-East hillside, its surrounding vineyards, olive groves and woods give it a bucolic feel. It also enjoys direct views on the Mont Ventoux, the Dentelles de Montmirail and the surrounding hills.
The buildings are articulated around a typical courtyard with arcades and 200-year-old natural water fountain.
At the front, the old forge and “magnanerie” (Provençal silkworm workshop) have been converted into two independent apartments, of respectively 70 m² and 90 m². At the end of the courtyard, the 400 m² Master House, family home dating back to the end of the 18th c., enjoys a preserved and protected environment. On the East side, it is opened on a pleasant park, which affords various tree essences and natural water basins.
The estate includes a 800 m² operating building, composed of a historical winery with concrete tanks, a barn, an agricultural shed, etc…
Although refurbishment work will be needed, the building has been well kept by the current owners. It retains all its authenticity and history (period fireplaces, vaulted cellars, cement tiles…).
In addition, the estate includes an independent stone building divided in two apartments.
The vineyard is planted on the hillside all around the Château, over 5.7ha classed in AOP Côtes du Rhône. The estate also includes an olive grove, and 10ha of white oak and green oak, which can be used as firewood.
