This manoire has evolved over the years and is now a lovely family home in the lower reaches of the Sarthe valleys, just a short drive to Tours and Le Mans. It has been family owned for several generations and was recently renovated and is now an ideal base from which to explore the famous Loire Valley and is certainly big enough to provide space and accommodation for family and perhaps paying guests.
There is exposed stone work, beams, tiled floor, large open fireplaces and cross-windows galore and the character of the original design remains today today with the added modernisation of oil fired central heating, shower rooms, etc.
The ground floor offers a large double aspect sitting room with working fireplace, a separate dining room, large kitchen/breakfast room, wc and utility room, below is a substantial cellar (home to the heating system and plenty of space for a wine collection).
The first floor currently provides a master bedroom (triple aspect) with shower room in the tower, 2nd double aspect sitting room with fireplace, guest bedroom with modern shower room and wc. The top floor (a recent conversion of the existing attic space) has two good sized single bedrooms, a double, shower room and wc.
Outside there is approximately 5000m2 (over an acre) of lawn, gravelled parking, fruit trees, and more. The property is surrounded by another 5.5 hectares currently rented out to the local farmer. Along with the manoir there are 3 large barns in good condition which can provide a number of uses: horses and other animals, storage, garaging or even additional accommodation space if required.
Located in the countryside not far from the market town of Chateau-du-Loir with its range of schools, shops, cafes and restaurants and ideally placed halfway between Le Mans and Tours with excellent access to Paris (TGV in around 1h from either Tours or Le Mans) and the Loire Valley. Perfect as a quiet permanent or holiday home with superb views.
