4    4    3
  • Spectacular setting adjacent to a chateau
  • Aerothermic heating and mains drainage
  • Meticulously renovated throughout
  • Beautifully landscaped gardens on two levels
  • Sensational views across the Dropt river valley
  • A short walk from the centre of Duras


In an outstanding setting, in terms of both the view and the adjacent buildings, this meticulously restored house was once the orangery to an important local chateau. A section of the original sweeping staircase from the orangery gardens below the chateau up to the town's ramparts and the chateau itself can still be seen within the property where they form part of a vaulted reception room which is constructed within the town's original walls. The origins of this section of the property could in part date back to the 12th century which places it historically alongside Henry II of England who married Eleanor of Aquitaine and who was the father of King Richard the Lionheart. The house itself has been created from a farmhouse which was built on the site many years later. It is of manageable proportions and has an exceptional reception room with recently carved stone cantilever staircase to the first floor, lovely library and hand fitted kitchen/breakfast room. There are four very well appointed bedroom suites with the master suite having windows to three sides. Externally the gardens are beautifully landscaped and well stocked. There is also a heated swimming pool with adjacent covered terrace/summer kitchen and changing facilities.
