Completed restored with no expense spared by the current owners, and to an extremely high standard, this stunning property has, over the centuries, been used for a number of activities and the last being a restaurant, which is difficult to imagine when stepping inside and viewing the period restoration that has been done.
The owner has tastefully returned the property to it's 17th Century origins and added modern upgrades yet still managed to retain the style of the period. The 2 conservatories, both hand built and made to measure from steel, add enormous amounts of living space outside of the original building. The master suite benefits from views over the village and chateau as well as internal views of the brand new roof timbers - again recreating the original "upside down boat" which is featured in this area.
Accessed via a formal carriageway with cobbled stones from the village square, leads to the hidden rear area of the building. The large conservatory that was designed and built as a modern kitchen/diner integrates onto the rear of the exposed beamed building as if it had been there for centuries. From within this conservatory there are views over the garden and courtyard towards the barn (former stables) beyond. Plenty of entertaining space inside and out.
Inside the main building there is another dining hall and large living room with feature fireplace, tiled floors and exposed beamed ceiling. Both these rooms have windows looking out over the main village square. Also on the ground floor is a modern shower room and WC and a wine cellar leading off the kitchen.
Upstairs, which is accessed via a solid oak staircase: halfway landing area with lovely views over the courtyard and part of the garden. 2 front facing double bedrooms, single bedroom and a family bathroom, WC and a separate Jacuzzi bathroom. The master suite is in the former attic space and the owner has replaced all of the roof timbers leaving them exposed as a feature in this enormous 90m2 suite. Large bedroom/living room area, twin sink shower (steam room) and dressing area.
The current owner has also purchased and part renovated the neighbouring house which today provides a large games room on the ground floor, large basement underneath (laundry, etc. ), 3 bedrooms on the 1st floor and an attic space above which could eventually interconnect with the master suite in the main house.
Outside there is a plot of around 2,500m2 within which there are 2 formal gardens, 1 with a mature tree offering shade, a front entrance gate, second conservatory (this time used as a gym and games area), lavatories, large barn (former stables) with wine cellar, 2nd garden with large ornamental pond (carp), garaging and parking area and direct river access.
The whole property is gated and enclosed offering privacy and tranquility. With views of the famous chateau from almost every part of the property (from garden to bedroom). Needless to say viewing is highly recommended.
Ideal as a family or holiday home, potential for a B&B business, etc. This is a stunning home in an excellent location within a very popular village and great access to a choice of market towns and about 20 minutes from Vendome with direct TGV access to Paris and less than an hour to Tours or Le Mans.
