Living like a King in the Loire Valley, Maine-et-Loire, Pays de la Loire
Entering through the arched gatehouse into this private chateau estate located between Baugé en Anjou and Saumur you immediately sense what is within .... Formerly one of France’s biggest crown estates the domain has seen a number of owners in the last decade or so (including the French national bank) and in the 1980’s has undergone a dramatic remodeling, removing the old ‘holiday apartment blocks’ and replacing them with a stylish houses and conversion of the chateau’s outbuildings creating a select private estate.
The chateau’s lands were divided up and today we have the pleasure in offering the converted 'hunting lodge' with what we consider to be the best placed and with the most sought after lands (in size and location) in the whole estate, being right next door to the chateau at the quiet end of a small development with a large 2.5 hectare plot.
The Accommodation Divided into three separate accommodation lots but just as easily modified to become one or even two if required. The owner lives in the larger lot offering roughly 225 sqm of living space over 2 floors with a large double aspect lounge, dining room with direct access to the terrace, entrance hall with wc, closet and stairs to the first floor and via the double aspect fitted kitchen access to the integral double garage. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. Next along is the office again split over 2 floors offering entrance hall and reception room, office, lounge, wc and upstairs a mezzanine area, shower room and large seminar room. The end of the building nearest the chateau is used as a gite with regular returning guests. The ground floor offers bedroom with private terrace and shower room. The first floor has a large kitchen diner with chateau views and 2 further large bedrooms and a large bathroom and on the upper floor a loft style lounge with views to the chateau. Outside
There is a private gated courtyard with access to the whole of the building and the stables and hanger. To the rear the formal walled garden is well laid out with pond, fountain, lawn areas and swimming pool (12m x 6m) and to the rear of the walled garden is a large paddock (currently used for horses) with separate entrance and also just over a hectare of mature woodland.
The Location A short drive to the famous market towns of Baugé en Anjou and Saumur make this an ideal base for family and guests alike to explore the Loire valley. Angers is a little further away with excellent communication links to Paris and beyond, by car or fast train.
