Difficult to get more “stately” than being owned by the State ….. this former “sous-prefecture” in the heart of Loches is in very good condition having been maintained (see “no expense spared” – which is easier to do when it’s the “people’s money”) by the French State. Still part used for this purpose today but ready to be vacated once a buyer is 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 this popular Loire valley town.
The chateau itself built circa 1850 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 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. Viewings are highly recommended but please given the nature of this property allow us time to arrange in advance.
