Property description
A 19th century, large, luxurious home with a hectare of parklands in a village, forty minutes from Blois and Tours - ref 330769
In the Centre-Val-de-Loire region, 220 km from Paris and 20 km from Amboise. In the Cher Valley, less than 3 km from a train station with 30-minute links to Tours which, in turn, has 50-minute links to Paris. Near to one of the gems of French architecture. Between two nearby villages with all schools and amenities. 400 m from the nearest shops.
This property, set in a verdant district where houses are well-spaced out, is delimited on the north side by a little-used street, on the east side by a neighbouring property, on the west side by a dirt track and to the north by a mall which is but an invitation to take a relaxing walk. The terraced land slopes down towards the valley. The lower garden, opening on to the cellars and the street, is enclosed by walls. The house, reached via stone steps, takes great advantage of the sunshine on the south side which features a terrace, completely surrounded by wrought iron railings. A few steps then lead to the parklands, spanning approx. 7,000 m², where hens and pygmy goats have all the space they need. Several log cabins are dotted here and there and a second set of gates opens on to the mall.

The large, luxurious home

This old vine-grower’s home, standing on level ground, comprises a rectangular central building, flanked by two towers, one on the east side and the other in the middle of the south facade. A low extension, set at right angles, houses the kitchen. The roofs, in a good state of repair, are covered with slate for the towers as well as the extension and tiles for the central building, with zinc covering the shed dormer on the south side. Freestone forms the framing around the openings and the quoins. The walls are rendered. The wooden framed, double-glazed windows are recent. The central heating circuit, run on an oil-fired boiler, has been redone.

Our opinion
Responsible restoration works have enhanced original features well-suited to creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere which fully justifies the current bed & breakfast activity. Not counting, of course, the great interest shown in the region by tourists. The extensive parklands, half of which is wooded, would be ideal for a permaculture project. And one of the greatest of the house’s advantages is that it is in verdant surroundings, near to shops and the station.
