Full description:

PRICE REDUCED - This very special and beautifully restored manoir has much to offer - with privacy and charm, it comes with lots of outdoor space, created and designed for the owners and their guests to enjoy the maximum from the al-fresco life that this famous part of the Loire Valley has to offer, yet it is only a short walk into the heart of a pretty village with a well reputed restaurant.

This 5 bedroom property has been lovingly restored throughout with great attention to the detail. An ideal family home, it provides not only a pleasurable environment to live in but also a very practical one. The main building, with typical of the period high-pitched roof, has tiled floors throughout, with exposed stone walls, beams, solid tuffeau stone fireplace and of course that mandatory underground solid stone arched wine cellar. The open aspect of the dining room leads the eye to the courtyard beyond and the kitchen with side door is well equipped whilst retaining its feature fireplace. The large (58m2) split level sitting room is also double aspect allowing plenty of natural light into this busy room, the fireplace (restored and replaced into it's original location after being discovered dismantled in one of the outbuildings) gives a lovely focal point as well as a complimentary heating source to the oil fired central heating. An office, laundry, wc and boiler room complete the ground floor.

The main stone staircase leads from the sitting room to the first floor with its master bedroom; quarry tiled floor, high ceilings, double aspect with lovely views and an en-suite bathroom. The other side of the landing is another large double bedroom with separate shower room.

A second staircase leading from the ground floor office passes to the rear of the master bedroom ascending up to the top floor now offering another large double bedroom with views to the local church and chateau, a single bedroom and wc,. There's space for a shower room on this floor as well if required.

Outside on the other side of the courtyard is a large stone former barn now providing garaging for several cars as well as a guest lodge with a bedroom upstairs (with lovely views over the park), bathroom, wc and sitting room on the ground floor. There is also a stone house with original bread-oven and another "pressoir" building. The natural boundaries of the walled courtyard have lent themselves to the creation of various relaxation, eating and sheltered areas each one with views of the manoir.

Via the gated doorway or one of the garages one can enter into the parkland. A good number of mature trees including two chestnuts dating back many hundreds of years. There's also a separate 1/2 acre plot sold with the property that has planning permission and could be sold off later on if the new owners wished.

Ideally located in a charming village a short distance from Azay le Rideau and Tours, a great family home with plenty of space for guests (paying or otherwise) and super outside space waiting to be enjoyed.
