Only 300m from the tramway leading to the heart of Tours city, this property would make an ideal bed and breakfast opportunity.
The property sits in over a hectare of private grounds, totally walled and secluded.
Tours is a wonderful base from which to explore the Loire valley chateaux and vineyards. There is an airport flying Ryanair flights to the UK, and it is less than an hour from Paris on the TGV.
Going off the main road you enter into a wonderful tranquil world, going through a large gated entrance, flanked by a lovely old chapel that is waiting to be lovingly restored. Going down the long driveway and past a large double garage the gardens open out in front of you and you are greated by the grandeur of this splendid historic building. Parts date from the 15th, 17th and early 20th centuries, it is recorded that it was in fact a hunting lodge for Louis XIème.
The house itself on the inside could do with a bit of updating but it retains all of its' original authentic and delightful charm, with elegant stone fireplaces, tiled tomette floors, exposed wooden beams and lovely wooden stairs throughout.
The roof was replaced between 2002 and 2006, all insulated and so it is in great condition. The heating is by oil and the De Dietrich boiler was installed in 1998.
