10 bedroom manor house for sale, Tours, Indre-et-Loire, Loire Valley
1,484,000 EUR 1,276,240 GBP 1,840,160 USD
This impressive estate which is located seventeen kilometres north of Tours, dates back to 1642 and comes with two guest lodges in the extensive grounds of 6.5 hectares with towering mature trees, some large outbuildings (stables, garages, chapel, etc. ), swimming pool, parkland, meadows and a tennis court which needs a little attention.
At present this historical residence which was extended in 1935 is used as a permanent home as well as a 'chambre d'hotes' buisness. Ideally located in a peaceful location whilst not being isolated as it has excellent access to local amenities and is just a short drive into Tours where there is the TGV station and airport along with everything else you'd expect from one of France's major cities.
