This impressive chateau which dates back to the Renaissance period, stands in 21 hectares of land which includes 10 hectares of vineyard which is producing well and the sale includes the wine producing equipment and the business. There are also 3 guest gites and a third building to convert, an attractive swimming pool in the park and far reaching views.
Located less than 10 minutes from Chenonceau and Blere, the property is presented in excellent condition with guest accommodation within the chateau as well as in the separate gites, pool with views over the valley, peaceful location offering over 20 hectares with roughly half of that an established viticulture business and all a stone's throw from France's best known and visited Loire Valley chateau, Chenonceau.
A short drive from the river road sees you at this impressive home. The gently sloping vineyards climb up the hill towards the forest edge whilst the views from the pool in the other direction look over the valley and beyond. The current owners have enjoyed this family home and the associated wine business and have extended into guest accommodation both as a chambre d'hotes within the chateau as well as 3 separate quality gites of differing sizes.
The formal entrance hall of the chateau is a true front to back passing underneath the stone staircase which leads to the upper floors. To one side we have the living room and library. The double aspect living room of circa 50m2 with views over the front and rear parks has a solid oak ornamental parquet floor with a large stone fireplace from the 16th century which is listed. The library also has a parquet floor with wood panelling.
The other side of the entrance hall is the dining hall of around 30m2, again double aspect with a smaller stone fireplace and harlequin floor tiles. This leads into the kitchen (25m2) which provides a functional and charming working environment and access to a utility room and the "servants staircase".
Underneath the living room, with internal access, is a large vaulted cellar of 43m2 which has been transformed into a bar/club for entertaining friends and family.
The first floor is home to the master bedroom with an impressive fireplace, bathroom, dressing room, 2 private bedrooms. The other side has 3 guest bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 childs room) and two private bathrooms.
There is a substantial attic ripe for conversion above. Historically listed aspects (ISMH)
