Located on the edge of a village within close proximity to a selection of market towns and numerous tourist attractions this impressive property is an ideal family home with a proven B&B business. The time has come for the current owners to downsize after 10 years and pass the reins along to a new owner who may wish to keep the business ongoing, increase or maybe just keep the home private for family use, the choices are endless.
Set back from a quiet lane leading into the local village with a good selection of amenities we are only a short drive from the bustling market town of Bourgeuil or a little further into the chateau town of Chinon famous for the river, chateau and of course the wine … some of the local vineyards can be found next door to this property.
What we would call a “Maison de Maitre” (Masters house) and given it’s location it is entirely possible that it was originally built with a link to the local wine-growing families of the area. Offering excellent ceiling height over it’s three floors and great sized reception and bedrooms there’s plenty of space for family and guests.
The formal entrance hall leads to the lounge/salon to the left or the dining hall to the right, both with views over the south facing front gardens. The owners have kept a ground floor guest suite providing ease of access for those with reduced mobility.
The kitchen to the rear is well equipped with lots of work top space and leads to a large internal garage/boiler/workshop/laundry room and separate office (very much needed when running a business). Upstairs the first floor has 3 guests suites each with private shower room and wc. The top floor is currently reserved for the family with a large master bedroom, games room, guest bedroom and bathroom.
Mains drainage and oil fired heating add to the creature comforts retained within the style of this period building and a possibility to include the guest furniture along with any existing bookings for this year if required.
The plot measures just over 1/2 acre and the house is located roughly in the middle with plenty of gated parking to the rear along with the formal gardens to the front. There is a sizeable attic over the garage which could possibly provide another couple of guest rooms or maybe a self-contained gite if one was needed.
A quiet relaxed setting with excellent access to a great selection of local amenities and the rest of the Loire valley at your disposal.
An early viewing is highly recommended...
