A impressive French chateau dating from the mid Nineteenth Century, tastefully renovated and set in an estate of over 100 acres of extensive parkland in a quiet situation.
This commanding property is in excellent condition on the main floors with scope for further accommodation on the upper floor. The 6m high ceilings and light spacious aspects of the formal reception rooms and entrance hall provide ample space for entertaining.
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, once the capital of France.
Formal steps to the double-faced front and rear chateau permit owners and guests alike to immediately appreciate the grandeur to be found within. The stone-staired and columned entrance hall is vast with double height ceiling and leads to the south facing reception rooms: sitting room, dining hall, study, salon, etc. each one enjoying views over the parkland 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 panelling are features to be found throughout this residence. 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 beyond.
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, there are about 44 hectares of private enclosed parkland, woodland 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 of Tours.
This chateau dates back to 1869 has 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. It’s location today offers an ideal retreat and relaxation whilst retaining excellent access into Tours and then TGV to Paris in less than 1 hour.
