Commissioned by the same family who owned the château d’Ussé (inspiration for “Sleeping Beauty”), this Louis XV styled manor was constructed in the early 18th century. Offering over 550m² of living space over 3 floors and a guest lodge, both recently renovated. Over 1000m² of troglodyte caves, 1.3 hectare plot including formal park (part of which is constructible) and gardens, swimming pool and former stables all within an easy 10 mins drive of Tours.
The manor’s entrance hall is home to the impressive original stone sweeping staircase. All of the ground floor reception rooms overlook the front and south facing side of the property. Lounge, library and dining hall all have features galore and high ceilings (an indication of the wealthy origins of the property). The kitchen is modernised and spacious. On the first floor are 3 bedrooms with ensuite facilities, a troglodyte bedroom with private lounge and two further bedrooms with a shared shower room ad wc. On the top floor are two more bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, an independent apartment with separate external access, with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and wc and a large bedroom.
Within the large grounds of just over 1.3 hectares we have a 5m x 10m heated pool and terrace, former guardians house now a guest lodge with lounge, kitchen, shower room and wc downstairs and 2 bedrooms above. The former stables (roughly 300m²) had a new roof in 2020 and are ripe for conversion into a number of possibilities. Behind the manor the caves totalling roughly 1000m² are spread over 3 levels and include a banquet hall (200m²), storage, wine cellar and others. There park is extensive and includes a tree lined avenue (with another gated entrance/exit), courtyard with parking, formal gardens, etc. etc.
An ideal location for a family home with the possibility of B&B or other activity. Very nicely presented and ready to move into and enjoy.
