Imposing 18th C. Chateau for sale, furnished and restored as well as a 15th C. Manoir to restore, just 15 kms from Tours, gateway to the Loire Valley with its historic Chateaux and tourism industry and yet the surroundings are peaceful and the Chateau occupies a substantial domaine. Most interesting opportunity as the estate is entirely self sufficient.The property offers considerable scope either for private residential use, particularly ideal for large family gatherings or could equally be of interest for some form of commercial venture given its location and the scope that the forest and acreage offers for a variety of pastimes.
An avenue which is 2 kms long and 15 metres wide leads to the Chateau. It is one of the oldest avenues in teh Touraine. Lawns and paddocks are on either side and a French formal garden has been re-created following the original designs of many years ago.
The 18th century castle has been completely restored and now offers 29 rooms of which 15 bedrooms, all equipped with modern comforts.
The 15th century manor house, which is currently used for hunting and shooting, needs to be renovated. The forestry manager has a house in the woods.
All technical installations are new: the heating runs completely independently with wooden blocks supplied from the estate's forest.
Automatic irrigation/ watering from recent drilling.
Electricity and new plumbing throughout all buildings.
The sale includes a substantial amount of maintenance equipment (garden, green spaces, woods, buildings) as well as workshops equipped for carpentry and painting.
The estate consists of 100 hectares of meadows and 350 hectares of forest. The grounds include a vegetable garden, an orchard and an apiary enabling organic production.
This is a well established sporting estate with its flatlands, woods and lakes fed by two small streams.
The running costs of the estate are covered by the resources of the estate, making it entirely self sufficient. This is an amazing property with considerable potential in a particularly good setting within easy reach of the Loire Valley TGV links and historic Chateaux.
