Price: € 1 350 000 | Ref.: 3334 | Views: 14 261
For sale from the owner: well-maintained wine castle in the Loire region. The château is built on a quiet spot, surrounded by centuries-old trees and some houses in the distance. The domain also features a home with 4 bedrooms and a 2-bedroom apartment. And all this can be found near all other Loire Châteaux, 15 minutes by car from Chenonceau and 25-minutes from Blois and Amboise. Tours is a 50-minute drive. The pleasant village of Motrichard where all needed shops are available, is no more than 5 minutes by car. About 2 hours by car from Paris.
The entrance hall consists of a large hall with authentic black-and-white slate and tuff stone floor tiles. This hall holds the massive wooden central staircase leading upstairs. The hall leads into the two living rooms with parquet floors, fireplaces and wooden panelling. In the tower a third, smaller room with similar panelling can be found. There is an office and a large, professional kitchen. The first floor holds 5 large rooms. Each room has a private bathroom. The second floor holds 6 large floors, each fitted with a private bathroom. Over the second floor the attic can be found. The total habitable area is 600 sq. m (6458 sq. feet).
The castle is surrounded by a beautifully designed garden with centuries-old trees in it. The pool is about 50 metres (164 feet) from the château. A big forest is growing up the steep slopes surrounding the castle. Higher up, large meadows can be found with electrical fencing suitable for horses. Many tracks run through the forest, there are caves and tunnels and an old, hidden chapel on the same territory. The meadows and a small vineyard are part of the domain with a 18 ha area.
The domain also features a home with 4 bedrooms and a 2-bedroom apartment. Also, the annex next to the castle is used for persons with physical limitations; all rooms are on the same level. There are 5 horse stalls with a shower room. Behind the castle we find the two houses, the garages and the storage facilities. One space features an antiquated wine press and wine storage, because basically the château is an old wine castle.
The château is a former wine castle, suitable as a private home, but also for running a chambres d’hotes or small family hotel. The small vineyard still provides sufficient production for the wine label that is included.
