PRICE REDUCED - Just 17 kilometres north of Tours, this beautiful XVth century home comes with enormous possibilities for income from an equestrian centre, B&B, Gites or just a luxury private residence.
The present owners have reorganised the estate to include the adjoining farmstead which now offers gite accommodation along with the barn, hanger, stables, etc. all grouped together on the 11 hectare private estate.
The archives tells us of a noble property existing on this site since 1423, throughout the ages several extensions and additions have been carried out on this home notably the square tower, gallery and part octagonal structure to the rear.
From the moment you step through the front door into the hallway of the main residence you are greeted by 3.8m high ceilings, original beams and tiled floors. The “light-well” ending in a stained glass window provides natural light over the original oak staircase. The large reception rooms both enjoy south facing windows over the enclosed courtyard. The kitchen has been modernised and today provides an excellent functional work area to prepare for your guests or to use as a breakfast room when less formal dining is required. The kitchen also has direct access to both parts of the basement one part of which includes the traditional “wine testing cave”, the other part houses a sauna, boiler room and pool equipment. The garden facing gallery with distinct arched windows provides superb views over the pool area and park and leads to the part octagonal dining hall. A sizeable office and master bedroom with en-suite facilities complete the ground floor. Twin stairs lead to the 1st floor offering 8 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (with scope to provide en-suites to certain bedrooms if required). Also on this floor you’ll discover the library, a continuation of the part octagonal tower with great views over the pool, park and woodland beyond. The upper floor has a 1 bedroom apartment, ideal for a Nanny or “independent” relatives.
Across the courtyard from the main house we have the original porch and next to it a guardians/guest lodge at present with one bedroom (but scope to expand), lounge, kitchen and bathroom. Two stables, a “hunting room” and garden store complete one side of the courtyard with the rear of a smaller barn (currently a games room) on the other.
The former fermette has been tastefully transformed into a 9 person gite with bedrooms on the 1st floor and large lounge and modern kitchen on the ground. There is part of the attic space which could also be used as accommodation if so required.
This property has a large number of outbuildings which include “birthing stables”, an open hanger and hay store, several garages, and an enormous barn with traditional “upturned boat beams” for the roof. The 11 hectare estate includes approximately 6 hectares of mainly oak woodland, 4 hectares of paddock and prairies (split into 3 areas), a pond, a large fruit/vegetable area, private entrance driveway, courtyards, parkland and pool and sun area.
Located 17km north of Tours putting the Loire Valley on your doorstop, with an excellent choice of local amenities and various golf courses at your disposal. Paris is circa 2h30 with again a choice of Autoroute access close by. A beautiful home with enormous possibilities from maybe equestrian options, B&B, Gites or just a luxury private residence, up to you to decide.
