Charming French Chateau Featured on Channel 4 Now Available for the Price of a UK Two-Bedroom Home

Considering a change from the soaring property prices in the UK?

Perhaps it’s time to consider a jaunt to France via the Eurostar.

A stunning chateau, which graced Channel 4, is now on the market.

This estate, showcased in Escape To The Chateau DIY (series 4), is listed for £408,841 (€472,500) – a figure comparable to a typical Kent bungalow priced at £425,000.

Located in Saint-Pierre-Bellevue, Creuse, the residence was erected in 1895 as a hunting retreat for the French and Belgian elite. More recently, it served as a high-end bed and breakfast.

This luxurious mansion features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and three reception areas, complemented by a gated entry and 1.6 hectares of breathtaking rural landscape.

The entrance leads to a classically styled hallway, guiding visitors to the reception areas and kitchen, equipped with a wooden island, pendant lighting, oak cabinetry, and a gas cooker.

The dining room boasts a notable fireplace, wood stove, and lofty ceiling.

On the first floor, the master suite overlooks the gardens, with double doors opening to a terrace, alongside an adjoining bathroom.

Three additional bedrooms offer remarkable views, en-suites, with one including a freestanding bathtub.

A staircase ascends to an attic, spanning roughly 140sq m, ripe for transformation into an apartment.

The spacious basement is ideal for storage or potential room conversions.

A former chapel on the property has been transformed into a fifth bedroom with an en-suite.

Additional features include various storage rooms, two vaulted cellars, and a boiler room.

Externally, the chateau is adorned with exquisite gardens, an expansive vegetable patch, a terrace with a jacuzzi, a sunbathing terrace, and numerous shaded spots for relaxation and enjoying the open countryside vistas.
