Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
Zilbert International Realty, an innovative and successful Miami-based real estate agency, announced today that it has been selected as the exclusive sales and marketing company for France's famous Chateau de Charbonnieres. The historic chateau is a private residence located in France's Loire Valley, and sits on 37 hectares (79 acres) of land. It is being listed for sale at US $37M. The property has been renovated and upgraded to a 2012 standard, while retaining most of the original and historic features.
The Chateau de Charbonnieres is located near Paris, and dates back to the 15th century when it originally was constructed as a castle. In the 18th century, the Count of Chamois started a massive construction project to extend the castle and create part of what is today's chateau. Further additions in the 19th century extended the main structure and supporting buildings to the current, combined 33,000 square feet of living space. A recent four-year renovation project restored the chateau to its original glory, while adding modern infrastructure for a modern lifestyle.
The Chateau de Charbonnieres is one of a few historic chateaus in France that is not required by the French government to be publically-accessible. It is a private, unencumbered property that affords its occupants maximum privacy and complete seclusion. Its 79 acres of private land include a forest, river, lake and meadows; plus horse stables, a French garden in the flavor of Versailles and an Orangery, where oranges and other warm-weather vegetation are grown year-round.
The main chateau offers 15 spectacular bedrooms, many with private salons. There are a variety of traditional special-purpose rooms, such as a ballroom, library, grand rooms, dining rooms and others, There is also a complete two-bedroom apartment in one section of the castle, along with a special top-floor open room suitable for a home theater, game room or other use.
The massive renovation and restoration project of the Chateau de Charbonnieres started in 2007. It was recently completed. Most of the original features of the structure, such as doors, beams, facades and special treatments were retained and restored. The 150 windows, electrical systems, plumbing systems and other infrastructure were entirely removed and replaced to a modern standard. The property has even been brought up to a digital standard, with Internet and wireless access points throughout the chateau.
