This property is 40 minutes from Tours via the motorway and 30 minutes from Blois, both are towns of Art and Histoire on the banks of the royal Loire river. It stands, between the Loire chateaux and the Cher Valley, in the midst of a region with an extremely good tourist trade. The nearest village is less than 3 km away. A small town, 10 minutes away, has all amenities as well as primary and secondary schools.
The large, luxurious home
This large, luxurious home comprises two adjoining buildings, a pavilion spanning three levels, one of which is under the slopes of the roof, symmetrical to the second, quadrangular 2-storey building, standing on the corner of the moat. The facades are rendered whilst freestone forms the framing around the openings, the cornices and the quoins. One has a slate roof with a break and the other has a slate hip roof. Both are topped with finials and feature triangular pediment roof dormers.
Most of the door and window frames are made of PVC with double-glazing, although some old wooden-framed windows have been preserved, notably those with small panes and indoor shutters looking out over the courtyard.
The annex house
A building, all on one level, stands in the centre of the esplanade surrounded by the moat. Set at right angles to the large, luxurious home, it is laid out as an annex house with a living room-bedroom, a fireplace and a bread oven, a shower room and toilet as well as a study. All the door and window frames are new. The gable roof, with its tiles, was recently renovated.
The caretaker’s cottage
The caretaker’s cottage stands at the end of one of the buildings on a corner of the outbuilding courtyard. It is partially separated from the courtyard by a hedge. It comprises a living room, with a 3.6 m high ceiling, featuring exposed beams, and a wood-burning stove, as well as two bedrooms with their shower rooms and toilets. All the door and window frames were recently replaced.
Constructed of quarry stone blocks, their 90 m of facades facing the courtyard feature toothed dressed stone and brick decoration. Freestone was used for the framing around the openings and the voussoirs. They have slate roofs. Three buildings form a courtyard and comprise the old stables, with a bedroom and shower room for the carriage driver, several barns and storage areas, a workshop, the old cowsheds, haylofts, a woodshed, a hunting room with its adjoining kitchen as well as an impressive dovecote on the south corner of the outbuildings. The tiled roof of the dovecote is topped with a small, round steeple, covered with slate fish-scale tiles.
The pavilion and the chapel
A pavilion dominates the property’s moat and lake from the north-east corner of the esplanade. With an upstairs and an attic floor under a roof break, it awaits full conversion works. The estate’s consecrated and renovated chapel adjoins this pavilion.
The garden and its surroundings
The vaulted cellar, under the old chateau, at the foot of the two majestic cedar trees, spans a floor surface area of approx. 100 m². Facing the two cedars, the well laid out garden, with its lawns, boxwood, hornbeam and purple beech trees as well as rose bushes, dominates the moat and the surrounding countryside. Around the moat, the outskirts of the property comprise wooded lawns, a little lake, an orchard reached via a bridge from the esplanade and an adjoining wood spanning approx. 6.5 hectares.
Outbuildings of unquestionably beauty have been left paying posthumous tribute to a chateau no longer in existence. Beginning with the robust, round dovecote, the sides of which feature the same freestone and brick decoration as the other buildings; a mark of the unity existing throughout this property. The large, luxurious home is from another era but does not detract from the beauty of this little universe of very interesting constructions which have defied time. Between cultivated fields and rows of AOC Touraine vines, this well-kept estate has it all: a moat, an orchard, a spring, a lake, tall trees and a vast wood. Those who believe in Heaven even have a chapel, in which to give thanks for the beauty of the premises.
