South-east of the popular market town and tourist destination of Loches and a 1h drive to Tours this elegant, restored chateau enjoys commanding views over the village and provides ample accommodation in the chateau itself with self contained habitation in the numerous outbuildings. With over 6 hectares of park and gardens including a heated pool this property offers a private lifestyle whilst still retaining excellent access to local amenities.
Passing up the double steps and entering the formal hall you'll discover the elaborate plaster work bordering the ceiling, wood paneling and polished 'travertin' floor tiles. From here a gallery style corridor with oak parquet floor provides access to the reception rooms and an original 19c oak staircase to the upper floors. The fully equipped large kitchen/breakfast room of 37m2
allows the functionality of modern life to integrate with period living. The dining hall of 34m2
with herring bone parquet in oak, wood paneling, ornate plaster work and a marble fireplace adjoins the reception lounge of the same size as the dining hall with the same features. The billiard room is slightly larger with parquet flooring and leads to a library. An office, wc, cloakroom and store rooms complete the ground floor.
The first floor is home to a large landing area with oak flooring leading to a corridor here providing access to 7 large double bedrooms the majority with parquet flooring and all with en-suite facilities (1 bathroom & 3 shower rooms) and a family bathroom (bath and shower). On the top floor the former staff quarters are ripe for restoring and converting with a total of 7 rooms and 2 attic rooms. The 'garden floor' (underneath the main floor but not 'underground') covers the whole area of the chateau and has 2 large vaulted rooms and various others including the boiler room and storerooms. The roof is in excellent condition and this chateau has mains drainage.
Outside within the 6.6hectares of land we have: a heated pool (12m x 6m), Annex house that has been restored and now has open plan kitchen/lounge, bathroom, wc, hallway, 2 bedrooms on the ground floor and 1 bedroom (to be finished) upstairs. There are 4 Pavillons of which 2 have been completely restored (offering 4 bedrooms in each), the remaining 2 pavillons require differing amounts of work to finish them off. There's also 2 square buildings, the original 'glass house' to restore, large summer room with direct access to the pool, a 50m2
garage and various other outbuildings. The grounds overlook the country and local village and are a mix of formal gardens, wooded parkland and a paddock.
