Rare opportunity to purchase a renovated stately chateau in very good condition set in 2 hectares of land in the Loire Valley. It's not easy to get more 'stately' than this former 'sous-prefecture' in the heart of Loches which is in very good condition having been maintained by the French State!
Still part used for this purpose today but ready to be vacated once a suitable buyer has been found, this exceptional property is ideal for a luxury hotel project with excellent access, plenty of parking, private park and a perfect location in the heart of a popular Loire valley town.
The chateau itself built around 1850 offers just over 1,300 sqm of living area with approx. 300 sqm on each of the 4 floors (approx. 600 sqm in reception rooms and former office space and another 700 sq.m 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....
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 TLC) 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.
A viewing is highly recommended but please given the nature of this property allow us time to arrange in advance.
