Chateau going, going, gone

Le Chateau d'Hardricourt

Today, and stumbled upon this chateau (I went out to try and find it, really), it's in a neighboring village and it has recently been bought by an anonymous bidder at an auction in Versailles.

It once belonged to African dictator Jean-Bedeal Bokassa (Central African Republic). Profits from the sale will be divided between an estimated 50 people who claim to be his heirs

Sold for 915,00 Euros ($1,2 million/760,000 pounds), is reported to be in a bad state and would take up to 3 million euros to restore it to it's former glory.
Some say it's going to be a second home for a wealthy couple, but I can see a property developer behind all of this and 5 or 6 luxury apartments on the way.
