Full description:

Grand, spacious and impressive 19 Century chateau, which has been beautifully improved and maintained by the current owners over the last 2 decades, during which they have been resident.

Refurbished whilst managing to keep its historic character and charm, this superb chateau, which has been historically a family home, but could easily be used for guest accommodation as a boutique hotel.

With commanding views over the valley and village below, just a very short drive to the heart of Tours, which is a buoyant university city with all the trappings of the "French Cafe" lifestyle on the doorstep, renowned for its gastronomic excellence not to mention the famous "Loire Valley" wines.

With around 1,200m2 of living space with plenty of natural light in an exclusive location and very rare on the market, the chateau is double fronted with stone steps leading to both front and rear terraces. The formal entrance is via the porch next to the parking area, this leads directly into the entrance hall, which is a welcoming informal area with period wood panelling, feature fireplace, soft seating, reception desk and original wooden stairs leading to the upper floors.

The entrance hall provides direct access to all the reception rooms on this floor. The 100m2 main reception room is triple aspect with ornate parquet flooring and great views over the park and beyond. All the ceiling on this floor are around 4.5m high and have period features. The breakfast room leads directly to the front terrace allowing for alfresco dining during the warmer months. The 3rd reception room is a living room with feature fireplace and separate "tower room" study area. A practical kitchen is placed on this floor with dumb waiter linking to the professional kitchen in the basement.

Below the main floor is the "garden floor" with professional kitchen (this kitchen is not currently used but could be put back into service - it provided the meals when a restaurant was run onsite), working cold store rooms, laundry, boiler room, various storerooms, wine cellars, workshops and even a games room.

1st floor: sizeable landing with storage cupboards and a linen room and then a central corridor with 8 double bedrooms distributed on both sides each one with en-suite facilities and views over the park and beyond. Each room is individual in decoration and size with impressive views and private en-suite facilities.

The upper floor has another 6 guest bedrooms all again doubles with en-suite facilities. at one end of this floor, including the tower room, there is an apartment over 2 floors, with 3 bedrooms and a shared bathroom. ideal guardian's quarters perhaps.

The chateau is located on the top of a hill with it's 15 hectares surrounding it. The formal entrance drive is gated and the tarmac drive sweeps up through the trees to a sizeable parking area to the rear of the chateau.

The views over the park with its selection of mature trees and on to the valley beyond are splendid and it is difficult to imagine how close we are to the centre of Tours.

Located discreetly to the rear of the chateau at the end of one of the tree lined alleys is the pool area, with terrace and swimming pool. There are several paths within the park permitting the owner and guests alike to wander and relax.

The chateau is on the edge of a village but remains private and secluded with no overseeing properties.

This is a unique property in excellent condition and rare in it's proximity to amenities, trains, airport, etc. whilst still retaining a secluded and private sizeable estate.
