Description

HERAULT 40 MINUTES NORTH OF MONTPELLIER EXCLUSIVE 12th ORIGIN BRISSAC CASTLE AND OUTBUILDINGS

This imposing castle, emblematic of the region’s historic heritage, was saved from ruin almost 60 years ago by an aesthete who loved old stones and undertook colossal restoration works to bring it back to life.

Built in a dominant position overlooking the village of the same name, it looks stunning and boasts an incredible 360-degree panoramic view, which was once part of its defensive function.
This stately home takes the form of a majestic main building flanked by 2 keeps to the north and south. Designed as a fortress in the 11th and 12th centuries, the castle was altered several times between the 14th and 17th centuries, and the chapel dates from the 16th century. The fortified outer wall dates from the 14th century and protects the outbuildings and outbuildings grouped together at the foot of the castle from any nuisance, as does the 16th-century chapel.

Access from the outside is via a vast enclosed main courtyard flanked by outbuildings facing the castle itself. This configuration protects it from any nuisance.

Two pretty old stone houses and a separate flat have been converted into gîtes, and a swimming pool with summer kitchen and shower room complete this remarkable and authentic architectural ensemble built on more than 17,000 sqm of land.

The enormous structural work carried out at the time of the restoration helped to safeguard this exceptional property.
Today, the castle, the outbuildings and the gîtes are in a very good state of repair and can be lived in as they are used inside.

The total surface area of the buildings is approx. 1,500 sqm, including probably around 800/900 sqm for the castle alone.

The CHATEAU comprises 16 main rooms over 3 stories served by two magnificent stone stairways, one of which is open to the sky.

Ground floor:
– Elegant arched entrance from the south-facing terrace followed by a delightful cloister-like courtyard,
– A chapel with pointed arches (in need of restoration),
– Hall with a first stairwell,
– Three large reception rooms, including the former guards’ room,
– Vast kitchen, scullery, pantry, guest toilet with washbasin.
.
First floor:
– Accessed via a beautiful right-angled stone staircase,
– Large former music room with impressive high ceilings, study and library,
– Superb “pluvarium” leading to,
– Two large en suite bedrooms each with bathroom and toilet, two other large rooms to be converted into suites.

Second floor:
– Mezzanine overlooking the former music room,
– Two large en suite bedrooms, each with bathroom and toilet.
– Elegant stone baluster staircase leading from the “pluvarium” to two other large rooms, also to be converted into suites.

Le DONJON Sud has four levels:
A beautiful vaulted room below, a library on the first floor and two additional terrace levels accessed by a delightful spiral staircase.

The North DONJON also comprises several levels:
In addition to the château’s former boiler room, it has an intermediate room accessible from the “pluvarium”, from which a very narrow stone staircase leads to a bedroom and a terrace at the top.

The architectural features, volumes, ceiling heights and fireplaces testify to the nobility of the premises and bear witness to a prestigious aristocratic past.

The two-storey OUTBUILDINGS in the courtyard of honour facing the castle include a courtyard used as a garage, caretaker’s accommodation awaiting restoration, a vast laundry room and, underneath, a shed, the former castle kitchen and the wine cellar.

OTHER OUTBUILDINGS:
A flat and two houses used as gîtes with separate entrances from the château. Each house is on 2 levels and has its own private garden area.
