This charming 15c chateau has undergone an extensive renovation during the last two years with the current owners and today offer sumptuous accommodation for family and guests in a beautifully private location in the heart of its 75 acres estate. Offering 11 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms (with scope to create more if needed) and 4 reception rooms this historic home is both spacious and practical providing ample room to relax and enjoy both inside and out.
As you arrive the impressive gated entrance and tree lined drive lead you naturally to the formal courtyard area with the chateau’s multitude of towers and turrets rising up around you. The entrance hall, spanning the whole length of the entrance facade, allows plenty of natural light in through the large windows thus ensuring that the main reception room and dining hall have a double aspect views. The sitting room and purpose built library are to be found at the southern end of the corridor along with the study with arched window (thought to have been the original drawbridge entrance in centuries past), a spiral stone staircase is hidden in this section to provide access independently to the upper floors. Returning to the north side of the ground floor we have the kitchen with range oven, access to the utility rooms and wine cellar and the “hunting room” with paneled floor access to the “dungeons” and private staircase to a 2 bedroom house-keepers accommodation.
The former chapel with high vaulted ceiling and long arched windows was transformed by a previous owner and now provides an elegant formal staircase leading to the 1st floor corridor, which as with the ground floor version is light an airy thanks to its large windows, light tiled flooring and vaulted ceiling. The “King’s room” (so-called to be used by visiting dignitaries overnighting at the chateau). This floor also houses the master bedroom with dressing area, en-suite bathroom and tower room along with 5 other bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The upper floor has two large rooms used currently as a gymnasium with en-suite facilities and the main attic could be converted into further accommodation if required.
Within the 75 acres of private estate there is a 2 acre lake, woodland, pasture, formal garden, a hard tennis court, pool, pool house, stables, garages, guardians accommodation and a small farmhouse (in need of restoring). An excellent location at only 10 mins from the centre of Loches puts all amenities close to hand. 45 mins will see you in Tours with direct TGV access to Paris in around 1h.
An impressive historical home with excellent features and character in very good order providing ample space for the family and friends to come and stay. A viewing is highly recommended.
