It is understood that in order to finish this beautiful XIXth century chateau you would need to spend approximately €150,000 as it is a little tired and needs some TLC and refreshing.

Only a five minute drive to Loches and several nearby villages, the estate stands in around 14 hectares of land, in a beautiful riverside location and comes with numerous outbuildings and a farmhouse which needs renovation; all in a wonderful quiet countryside setting.

With plenty of typically lavish 19th Century finishes throughout from ornate ceilings to stained glass windows, this property is ideally suited as a large family home with the extra bonus of the numerous farm buildings (including the farmhouse) within the estate - these would make super guest accommodation amongst a multitude of other uses.

The river setting allows for great unspoilt views offering fishing, canoeing, etc. right on your doorstep.

The entrance drive to this property is as it should be with the formal gates allowing the eye to be drawn to the white and red "rear of the chateau" whilst the front side is traditionally hidden and enjoys the views over the river. Surrounded by a formal park with the outbuildings off to the side "out of line of view" from the chateau. This property comes with 14 hectares and we understand that some more or less as required is available.

The formal entrance hall in the tower is panelled in wood with stained glass windows and the stairs to the upper floors. The kitchen of circa 20m2 has exposed beams and a working wood burner in the fireplace as well as a utility room adjoining. A service room hides the access to the staff staircase.

A cloak room and WC complete the practical side of this floor leaving us with three formal reception rooms: The first a dining hall of 37m2 with stone floor, stained glass windows and ornate wood panelling on the walls and ceilings and feature fireplace. The billiard room/Library is next, 33m2 with oak parquet flooring, stained glass windows and painted woodwork on the walls and ceiling.

The living room of 24m2 has parquet flooring and traditional style sculptures, painting and fabric coverings from the 19th Century (1883) and a large fireplace in stone and ceramics. A study with marble fireplace and oak parquet and an alcove finish off this floor.

The first floor has an oak parquet corridor leading to 5 bedrooms all with original marble fireplaces, a shower room, a bathroom (needs restoring), a study, laundry room and access to the service stairs which leads up to the 2nd floor - this floor needs restoring/renovating and at present has 5 service bedrooms and 3 further rooms.

The additional outbuildings include the former stables, workshops, store rooms, barns and farm house around an attractive courtyard setting with separate access from the chateau - ideal for transformation into guest accommodation, etc.

The location with the river view is idyllic and only a 5 mins drive from Loches with a number of small villages in proximity. Some work is required on this property and we are convinced the end result would be truly superb.
