Perfect for a family home, B&B, Gite, or anything else that may tickle your fancy.
This family owned period home requires some redecoration and light remedial work in order to restore it back to its former glory. The solid oak floors in their traditional “herring-bone” style on the ground floor and “straight laid” on the upper floors are in excellent condition and along with the 3m high ceiling and ornate staircase with stained glass windows give you an idea of the history behind this prestigious home. The property comes with a separate longere providing additional accommodation, banquet room and garages and has roughly 4 hectares (10 acres) of land part of which borders the river Le Loir. The land has however been divided by the Le Mans <> Tours TER (not the TGV) line with only around 10 trains per day (lasting at most 20 secs per passage) and not throughout the night.
The chateau offers: Twin stairs leading to the terrace then on to the formal entrance hall with ornate ceiling and staircase and tiled floor, to the right we have a lounge and library both with superb wooden floors, fireplaces and south facing views. To the left is the dining room, breakfast room and kitchen with direct access via its side entrance.
On the 1st floor are 4 good sized double bedrooms all with wooden floors and south facing views, a bathroom and separate shower room and two dressing rooms as well as the large landing area.
The 2nd floor : (in need of redecorating) provides 3 single bedrooms, 2 doubles and wc.
Outside we have formal lawn and garden, woodland with paths, river frontage and paddock. The large outbuilding now provides comfortable self-contained accommodation with lounge, kitchen/diner, bedrooms, banquet room, various other rooms, garage and barn. There are also two wells on the property and two caves.
The heating is via a heat exchanger pump and oil fired backup, the drainage system conforms to European requirements and the roof appears to be in good order.
This has been a lovely family home and would equally work as a B&B with separate gite accommodation for paying guests. Access to the nearby Autoroute and train station allow onward travel to the rest of France at ease. The market town of Chateau-du-Loir is less than 6km away with a choice of local villages nearby. Le Mans by car is direct in under 30 mins and Tours around 40mins. Paris via the autoroute is around 2.5h as is the ferry port at Caen.
Keenly priced to sell taking into account the minor work needed and proximity to the train line. (reference: NLEN001868)
