Full Description

Located on the outskirts of a Loire Valley village, this pretty 20th century village chateau benefits from a great situation being within it's walled park with it's leisure complex (swimming pool, spa, sauna, gym and steam room).
The Accommodation:
The immaculately presented chateau offering around 800 sq.m of total habitable space dates back to 1904. The high walls and gates ensure complete privacy within the grounds and the ornate features of this character home are both appealing to the eye as well as being in excellent condition. The period stained glass conservatory provides the formal street side entrance leading to hall with impressive staircase leading up to the 2 further floors as well as access to the basement leisure complex.
The professional kitchen is well equipped, light and airy with a charming "bistrot" style breakfast area as well as direct access to the dining room. Across the hallway is the lounge with large double doors which draw back to provide an impressive through room linking in the formal dining hall and from here you lead into the billiard room with it's views over the pool and park. Oak parquet flooring and high ceilings throughout this home give an indication of the quality construction and materials used at the time and today provide those character features that give homes like this one the standing they deserve.
In the basement the current owner has added a quality leisure complex offering gymnasium, spa, sauna, steam room, shower, relaxation lounge and heated swimming pool of 10m x 4.5m (added 4 years ago and still under guarantee). There is also a workshop, pump room, further shower room, 2 toilets , various cellars and the boiler room (heat exchanger system with oil boiler backup for the whole property).
From the first floor landing you have access to 4 bedrooms, family bathroom (spa bath, twin sinks and shower) and wc. All of the rooms are of similar size (double +), one has an en-suite and tower room, another a walk-in wardrobe with private sun terrace, another access to the terrace over the veranda (and possibility to add an en-suite) and the fourth with double aspect and own balcony. The upper floor has an attic space, wc, tower room, large family bathroom (bath and shower) and two double bedrooms.
Outside:
The park surrounding the house is well established and very relaxing, the signed stag statue over the fish pond reminds those within that you are not far from one of the regions largest oak forests with over 270km of walks and paths.
The former guardian's house could easily be converted into independent accommodation if required, so could the garage. Passing through the gate house and across the lane takes you to the 2500 sqm of vegetable and fruit gardens providing plenty of fresh produce for the owners.
The location:
The location allows direct access to the local amenities and a choice of 2 excellent market towns a few minutes drive away. The larger towns of Tours and Le Mans can be reached in about 40 minutes and Paris by car in about 2h30 (or less than an hour by train from either Tours or Le Mans).
A superb beautifully presented property with all the extras for fun and entertaining!
