Pays de la Loire, Maine-et-Loire (49)

€572,400 ID: 156275

This property, which can be dated back to at least 1725 and some artifacts found in the grounds can date it back even further.

It is approached by a gated driveway from the road and can be found nestling in amongst mature trees.

It is just 26km north of Saumur and is almost equi-distant between Tours and Angers east to west.which situates it in the heart of this magnificent area so very popular for tourism.

The market town of Noyant is just 4kms away and provides most amenities. The airport at Tours is just an 50kms away and Caen is a 2 œ hr drive. The TGV from Tours to Paris takes just 50 minutes.The area has good infrastructure and therefore provides fast and easy access to all major routes.

The present owners have worked hard to bring life back into this character building and have done so in a sympathetic way, with the separate gite having been totally renovated.The quality of the bedrooms and en -suite facilities easily compare with boutique hotel/B&B standard.

The Chateau itself comprises on the ground floor: an entrance hall approached from the lawn at the rear from which rises the stone staircase to the first floor. Leading off the hall is a downstairs toilet and a boiler room/laundry room housing a biomass wood boiler.

Another hallway leading to the kitchen and then onto the dining room. This has its own fireplace and views through picture windows out onto the lawns.

On the first floor to the right of the stairs is a very large dining/living area with full length windows to the front and rear giving access to the terrace from which, to the views over the extensive grounds can be enjoyed. This floor also accommodates 3 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. All the bedrooms are decorated to the highest standards. There is also a small area that’s used as an office.

Second floor consists of two further bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room and loft space.

Outside gives access to the cave which has four rooms,

Garage
The gite has its own separate entrance, fenced lawn area and faces away from the house ensuring privacy.
The ground floor is open plan, with a corner kitchen, enough space for a dining area and a very comfortable living room with a wood burner.

On the first floor is a double bedroom with a bathroom which definitely gives the WOW factor!

A large barn provides ample store space as there is a loft over as well. Next to the barn can be found an old outbuilding with hard standing outside which would have been perhaps used for stabling, but has lots of potential to be either reinstated or put to another use.

The formal lawns lead away from the chateau with the river bordering one side and post and rail paddocks are set off to the other. There is pasture land beyond the lawn and then woodland.

Last but not least is the watermill that requires a full restoration but the mechanism is still intact and it is believed to still be in working order.

This is a “must see” property – there is plenty of potential for additional living space and with its location in the Loire valley it would also be an ideal Boutique B&B candidate. Given the size of the land attached and the existing paddocks and outbuildings is ideally suited as an equestrian property in the heart of the Cadre Noir Country.
