Property Description

Steeped in history this impressive chateau dates back to 1869 and today is offered in excellent condition on the main floors with scope for further accommodation on the upper floor.  The 6 meter high ceilings and light spacious aspects of the formal reception rooms and entrance hall provide ample space for entertaining.

This property boasts many original features and it’s period “dumb waiter” from the basement to the kitchen and second from the basement to all the upper floors gives hints as to who it’s original owner was. With views over the “grand avenue”, park and woodland this chateau is ideally placed to enjoy the relaxation of rural life whilst still only a short 30 minute drive into the bustling metropolis of Tours, and beyond ....


ACCOMMODATION IN THE CHATEAU

Formal steps to the double faced front and rear chateau allow owners and guests to immediately appreciate the grandeur to be found within. The stone staired and columned entrance hall is vast with double height ceiling and leads naturally to the south facing reception rooms: lounge, dining hall, study, salon, etc. each one enjoying views over the park through their large windows (one of the main advantages of the architecture of this period) and several of which have double aspect views over the pond.

Period parquet flooring, marble fireplaces and wood paneling are features to be found throughout this residency. The kitchen is modern and very practical with the original kitchen in the basement below ripe for restoration should one wish. The first floor is home to a selection of bedrooms, TV room, master suite and bathrooms each one enjoying sumptuous views over the park and beyound.

The upper floor (former staff quarters) has had some work started and has scope for many additional rooms as required. The basement covers the entire floor area and still homes the original kitchen, various wine cellars, storage rooms, laundry and boiler rooms.


OUTSIDE

Approx. 44 hectares of private enclosed park, forest and grounds. There is a formal garden, original greenhouse, various outbuildings, a guest lodge with private pool and a farm complex housing the guardians accommodation and original stables. The location is quiet and private within a short drive into Tours.

The perfect private retreat in a priviledge location with views, whilst retaining excellent access into Tours with TGV direct to Paris in less than 1 hour. VERY SPECIAL!
