Beautifully renovated French chateau dating back to the late Eighteenth Century, set in 22 acres with outbuildings and easy access to Tours and the Loire Valley.
Purchased over 15 years ago, this elegant and appealing 1,500m2 property has been lovingly restored throughout by the current owners and retains many original features (including oak parquet flooring) and its multitude of rooms all enjoy commanding views over the parkland.
The driveway approaches the chateau through woodland, giving glimpses of the chateau ahead. The formal sweeping drive leads naturally to a temporary halt in front of the main steps of the chateau before continuing its path past the chapel, guest lodge, stables and then rejoining the woodland route back to the gates.
The impressive and grand formal entrance hall is provided with plenty of natural light, showing the ornate staircase in its full splendour. The 75m2 salon is double aspect with a large fireplace and period features along with double doors back to the entrance hall or on to the library. Wood-panelled with lovely views over the park to the rear the library has a door into the tower room, a circular double aspect room ideal for relaxing and unwinding with charming "star" set into the parquet flooring. The other side of the library (with separate access direct to the entrance hall) is the dining hall with period ceramic stove and views again over the park to the rear.
A "coffee kitchen" (small fully equipped secondary kitchen) has been added to the side of the dining room providing a useful addition to this floor. Completing the ground floor there are two large double bedrooms each with their own en-suite bathrooms and wc as well as a separate guest wc.
The chateau in traditional format has both the formal main staircase leading to the upper floors as well as a servants staircase with access also to the garden floor.
The garden floor is home to the functional aspects of chateau life with a splendid large kitchen with an enormous wood fired stove - reputedly a twin of the one at the chateau of Chenonceau, but with a significant difference that the one here is fully functional. There is a coffee living room and study in the lower part of the tower, various workshops, boiler room (recent oil fired boiler and system) and of course a wine cellar and numerous "cold stores".
The main staircase leads to the first floor, with a central landing with panelled ceiling providing access to 6 bedrooms (including 4 en-suites and 2 sharing a small kitchenette and bathroom, ideal as a family suite.
The upper floor (formally the servant's quarters) now provides 11 bedrooms (5 of which have fireplaces) and 2 bathrooms.
-The original consecrated chapel is a lovely building made of white tuffeau stone and dates back to the original chateau that once stood on this site.
-The "guest lodge" provides 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, living room and kitchen all on the ground floor. The upper floor is large and the roof in excellent condition - there is plenty of scope to create further accommodation on this upper floor.
-The "Barnum", a purpose built marquee, with access to a serving kitchen (ideal for offsite chefs to serve from) and wcs. The Barnum measures approximately 100m2 and is ideal for weddings, anniversaries, etc.
-The barn provides shelter for the tractor and other equipment as well as an enclosed 3 stall stables.
-The light and airy guardian's apartment is above the large garages and features another 2 double bedrooms, large living room, separate kitchen and bathroom/wc and separate oil fired central heating system.
-The stable-block provides 5 individual stables all facing the chateau across the front lawn.
-The "pigeonnier" gives an indication as to the wealth of the original chateau owner and is an interesting feature and is part of the original chicken run.
-The "Basse-courier" house is a lodge/small house with a bedroom upstairs and two small rooms downstairs that was at the disposal of the personnel who looked after the chickens, ducks, etc. Ideal for conversion into another comfortable guest lodge if required.
The estate covers approximately 9 hectares and has several feature trees dating back many hundreds of years. From the chateau the views extend over the rear lawn to the neighbouring woodland and lake in the distance (no longer part of the chateau estate).
Located around 20 minutes North of Tours (TGV to Paris in 52 minutes), several golf courses and 15 minutes to an Autoroute junction with excellent access to the main routes and tourist destinations in the area and beyond.
An ideal private home with the possibility of paying guests and business opportunities such as weddings, birthdays etc if desired.
Possibility to purchase the furniture and maintenance equipment/machinery.
Off market listing.
