Whether you are seeking a luxury home or a country getaway, a French chateau for sale may be the perfect choice for you. These magnificent structures typically have a considerable amount of land and are often worth more than the property itself. Because of the limited supply of these properties, you may want to consider other options, such as smaller logis-style properties. French chateaux are also often surrounded by landscaped grounds, so you can make the most of this fact when you are choosing a property.
The price of a French chateau for sale depends on the extent of the renovation required. Large properties are often dated by centuries and may require extensive renovations. Though many of these properties are ‘bargains’, they require exorbitant renovation and maintenance costs. The cost of a medium-sized chateau for sale is usually around EUR500,000. Therefore, be sure to take this into account when considering the purchase.
