A charming period chateau north of Tours and south of Le Mans with a lovely 12acres/4.8h enclosed estate with a restored logis and numerous outbuildings. Excellent access to one of the best villages in the area and a short 30 minute drive to Tours and its TGV with direct access to Paris.
The chateau and its logis today offer over 425m² of living space over 3 floors with many original features retained. In the chateau the ground floor provides a formal “front to back” entrance hall with quarry tiled floor and oak staircase, this leads to the left to the double aspect lounge with feature fabric murals representing the chateau and its logis, exposed ceiling beams, this room has a great relaxed fell to it and enjoys plenty of natural light. From here we discover the dining hall with feature period stone fireplace and access direct to a small kitchen in the tower room and also a wc and service staircase. To the other side of the entrance hall we have a formal dining hall or office with oak parquet floors and panelled walls leading to a hexagonal library with plenty of natural light and views over the gardens and 2nd wc.
Two staircases (service and the main) lead to the 1st floor where we discover a corridor leading to master hexagonal bedroom with views over the gardens and private bathroom, 4 other bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and wc. A mix of original parquet flooring and carpets on this floor.
The 2nd floor has a large gallery with parquet floor leading to 4 more bedrooms including another hexagonal one with dressing room and 3 bathrooms. There is an attic space above with charming timberwork … this could be converted if required.
The chateau has a slate roof in good condition and some double glazing, the heating and drainage systems will need upgrading.
The logis has been completely restored and offers over 145m² of living space over 2 floors: large living room with beams and tiled floor, fitted kitchen and another large lounge/diner. On the 1st floor we have a parental suite and 2nd bedroom with separate bathroom and an attic above. The roof again is in slate and very good condition, the building is double glazed and has a underfloor heat pump system on the ground floor. There is another large part of the logis ready for renovating if more accommodation is needed.
Outbuildings: garage 35m², workshop of 50m² + 50m² above, shelter of 60m², 2 vaulted caves, chicken coup and a kennel. The land is completely enclosed with a courtyard access via a pretty avenue. The park is well established with mature specimen trees, there’s an orchard and former vegetable area which would be perfect for a swimming pool, paddock, woodland and two ponds. The alfresco vineyard covered dining area overlooking the larger pond is simply magic and an ideal area to while away the time with friends and family.
A great location with excellent access to a very popular local town and easy access to the autoroute A28 and Tours, this family home has been enjoyed by the current owners for over 20 years and the time has now come to pass on the keys to a new owner who will improve and continue to enjoy everything this property has to offer.
