Beautiful petit château set on 4.5 acres of grounds with several outbuildings in a rural setting. The château dates back to 1386 when it formed part of the monastery at Saint Vincent. It was rebuilt in 1415 and 1435, only to become a fortress in 1534. Situated on a small hillside overlooking the small village of Villers-Pater nestled between hills in the middle of nature and offers the opportunity to relax and find peace in the heart of the Haute Saône countryside. The village of Rioz which has shopping facilities for daily needs is within a 10 mins drive. It takes about 3 hours by car from Zurich and about 1.5 hours from Basel airport is about a 1.5 hours drive.
As you approach the chateau you pass the caretaker’s house which is included in the sale (it requires renovation, but offers two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom). Inside the gate, there is a picturesque courtyard garden, which is open to the north and houses an annex to the right as a former distillery with a pizza oven.
The main building has been renovated and entering the main building, there is a kitchen with a hatch to the dining room, as well as a large living room and a toilet on the mezzanine floor.
An old, curved, spiral staircase leads to the private area on the first floor with its three tastefully furnished bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a fireplace in each of the bedrooms and the windows to the garden side offer a beautiful view of the greenery.
In the attic, there are additional bedrooms, two of which are finished and two of which are still in their original state.
Oil-fired central heating.
Land 4.5 acres (18000m²): There is a beautiful garden built up by small avenues of trees around a fountain, allowing plenty of space for al-fresco dining.
