"You can't have it all" . well, sometimes for the lucky few, you can. This magnificent historical property dates back to 1543 standing proud at the end of its private tree lined driveway, protected by its moat and bridged entrance gates this Loire Valley home offers seclusion and privacy assured whilst still only a short drive into one of France's most popular cities, Tours. Excellent national and international access with the added bonus of its own helicopter landing area this charming residence has been loved and enjoyed by the current owners for the last 20 years. A complete renovation has been undertaken and today we are pleased to offer a "turn-key-solution" as either permanent or holiday/entertaining residence for the new lucky owners.

Owned by the respective Kings of France until around the 18th century this chateau was made available to the king's personal financial managers and tax collectors in the Province of Touraine. Relatively untouched during the revolution and wars many of the original features are still in situ; from the large fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, pigeon tower and of course the moat on all four sides.

Today the property offers a large well equipped kitchen/breakfast room (45m) with open fireplace and separate utility room, a period vaulted dining hall (40m), formal lounge with fireplace and views over the moat (62m) and library with feature fireplace and moat views (40m). Completing this floor on the main house we have guest restroom, laundry room and boiler room.

The stone stairs leading to the first floor landing offer a choice of directions: to the right the master bedroom (45m) and en-suite bathroom (bath and shower) and to the left a corridor leading to the 3 family bedrooms and a bathroom. The second floor offers guest lounge with exposed beam work and 3 guest bedrooms (2 guests and 1 Nanny's room) and 2 bathrooms.

Across the courtyard the former chapel now offers an underground wine cellar (50m), open plan working studio of 60m with restroom. The upper floors is a self-contained guest apartment. In the corners of the courtyard are two of the former square watchtowers providing storage space, workshop and dovecote - both of these could become additional accommodation if required.

The estate covers 10 hectares with meadows, fields (agriculturally cultivated) forest, vegetable and herbal gardens as well as pool, decking, sun area, shower, etc. There is a garage with guardian/gardener accommodation above. Located in a private quiet setting around 20 mins from Tours with a choice of local amenities in the nearby market towns (the nearest one less than 5 mins away).

An impressive quality historic home and one of only a small few of this style and era left standing in the area and very, very rare on the open market.
