      Ref.4089: beautiful 19th C. castle and its 49,5 acres park in Val de Loire.

      This splendid property is discreetly located in the small Loire Valley region on the borders of the Orléans and Sologne regions, only a few kilometres from Orléans.
      Southern Paris can be reached in 1h40 via the A10 motorway and in less than an hour by train from the prefecture.
      With its privileged position, this beautiful estate benefits from all the shops and services of the neighbouring communes, without suffering any nuisance. In one of them, a quality market is held every Sunday, rich in local and seasonal products which will delight lovers of good food and local consumption.

      The current castle dates from the 19th century and was built on older foundations that already existed in the 17th century.
      Oriented North/South, it consists of a central part flanked by two symmetrical pavilions on either side, forming a "U" shape. The building, spread over three levels including an attic floor with hipped dormers, is organised as follows:
      On the ground floor (approx. 300 sqm / 3,229 sq ft): a through entrance that leads to a west-facing lounge with parquet flooring, an elegant fireplace and wainscoting. Continuing on, there is an independent dwelling which, in the past, communicated with the lounge (it is relatively easy to recover the original configuration by reopening the access). It comprises a staircase leading to a corridor that leads to a library, a laundry room with toilet and a kitchen that opens onto the dining room. Under the staircase, stone steps lead to a small cellar.
      To the east of the entrance hall is a study with its fireplace and beautiful woodwork, then a dining room with fireplace which leads to a fitted and equipped kitchen and a landing with toilet and staircase. Under the stairway is the descent to a second cellar which houses the boiler room and a storeroom.
      On the first floor (approx. 300 m² / 3,229 sq ft):
      From east to west, a stairway leads to the second floor, a dressing room that leads to a bathroom that in turn leads to a bedroom. Then a long, luminous corridor leads to 4 bedrooms with shower rooms or bathrooms, some with toilets, a linen room, a staircase and a dressing room. In the independent flat, a corridor leads to a first bedroom with shower room and toilet, then a second bedroom with bathroom, toilet and dressing room. A staircase gives access to the second, western part.
      On the second floor (approx. 250 sqm):
      In the eastern part: a study, a bedroom with shower room and toilet and a storeroom.
      In the central part: 3 bedrooms with shower room or bathroom, one with toilet and independent toilet.
      In the western part: 3 bedrooms, one of which has an adjoining bathroom, independent toilet, independent bathroom, storage room.

      The outbuildings are harmoniously arranged to the north of the castle, thus ensuring perfect privacy for the main house.
      From the north entrance to the property, the graceful silhouette of a beautiful dovecote topped by a bell tower stands out like a sentinel guarding the property.
      To the east, a long building houses various cellars, a workshop, a garage and a woodshed.
      The elegant former stables form a "U" shape, separated by a small kennel. They now house various storage rooms, three garages, one of which is double, a poolhouse with kitchen, two changing rooms with sanitary facilities for the immediately accessible swimming pool.
      The 12x6 m swimming pool was built in 2002 and benefits from a salt filtration system and a retractable cover over a terrace of almost 80 sqm.
      Adjacent to the stables, the manager's house comprises: living room, kitchen, laundry room, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom.
      To the west, a half-timbered building, slightly horseshoe-shaped, as if to fit in with the castle on the one hand and the stables facing it on the other, houses the former staff accommodation and several other rooms for various uses.
      In the same perspective, the former guard's house to be restored offers good potential with 4 rooms, shower room and toilet on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms on the first floor. Cellar in the basement.
      Slightly set back from the latter, the "little inn" is used as a hunting lodge.
      Finally, a chapel situated to the south of the castle completes this beautiful ensemble.

      Immersed in a domesticated and benevolent nature, the castle and its outbuildings stand in a delicate setting that nothing can disturb, not even the life of the neighbours who live nearby.
      A long stone path leads to the north entrance of the property. A second entrance to the south boasts a sumptuous and imposing wrought iron gate which opens on to a beautiful driveway depicting a wilder forest setting where it is not unusual to see roe deer and pheasants frolicking.
      In the immediate vicinity of the château, the park is illustrated by its many centuries-old cedars, redwoods, lime trees, oaks, etc., which confirm the importance of this estate.
      All around, the alternation of geometric forms conceded by this play of lawns, topiaries, hedges and gravelled paths, gives the whole a very well worked dimension which gives pleasure to escape for a moment in this beautiful universe.
      And since nothing is missing, the vegetable garden and orchard complete this ensemble of 49,5 acres.
