20 bedroom French chateau for sale, Loches, Indre-et-Loire, Loire Valley
1,872,000 EUR 1,647,360 GBP 2,302,560 USD
A very impressive 19th Century French chateau with 20 bedrooms, set in 2 hectares of private parkland and yet beautifully positioned in the heart of popular Loire valley town.
This state-owned property was the former "sous-prefecture" in the heart of Loches, and has been beautifully maintained with "no expense spared" by the French State. It is still part used for this purpose today, but will be vacated once a buyer is found.
This exceptional property is ideal for a luxury or boutique hotel project with excellent access, plenty of parking, private parkland and a perfect location in the heart of this popular Loire valley town.
The chateau was built circa 1850 and offers a little over 1,300m2 of living space with roughly 300m2 on each of the 4 floors (approximately 600m2 in reception rooms and former office space and another 700m2 used as private apartments for the governing officials).
A vast number of original features are still present from the ceiling mouldings, marble fireplaces, mosaic tiles and parquet floors to name but a few.
The annex has been completely converted today offering 16 offices, seminar rooms, etc. etc.
Outside the formal gates lead into the large parking area with the annex to one side and the chateau the other. To the rear of the annex and originally the front of the chateau is the park, with a number of mature specimen trees, a canal, pond and original greenhouse (in need of some attention). Flanked by the river/streams on two sides, providing an excellent environment for owners and guests alike to unwind and relax before wandering into the town for some sightseeing or finding a place to eat.
The buildings also have mains drainage, mains gas (for the central heating) and high speed internet all thanks to their prime location.
Viewings are highly recommended but please given the nature of this property allow us time to arrange in advance.
