Country Manor house with excellent potential near Loches, Indre-et-Loire, Centre-Val de Loire
This Manor house is the complete package …. with enormous scope to create various projects in a great location of the Loire Valley. A short drive from one of our favourite Loire valley towns, Loches, this large property offers several complete houses and numerous outbuildings all grouped in an elegant formation with plenty of land included.
Not sold that long ago (by ourselves), this rare property is back on the market due to a change in circumstances of the current owners. They bought, moved in changed all the windows for new double glazed units and improved various aspects of the main house and numerous outbuildings with a project for multiple guest accommodation including “equestrian holidays”, etc... so there is enormous scope to create a multitude of projects from this substantial property in a great location.
THE ACCOMMODATION The manor house has a formal entrance hall with central corridor and stairs to the upper floors. 4 ground floor rooms allow the scope to extend the galley style kitchen and create a much larger kitchen/breakfast room whilst still retaining a separate dining hall and lounge.
The first floor is home to 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with the possibility of creating more en-suite facilities. The top floor currently has bedrooms and a bathroom with a large recently prepared “attic room” of 90 sqm primed for finishing.
OUTSIDE Within the 5 hectares of land there is a wide selection of outbuildings all in good structural condition, several with new roofs and in differing states of finish inside. The guardians house within the gated section of the property is currently used as a working office, the barn opposite is part converted into a guest lodge with large “party room” above the workshops below (ideal for further conversion).
Outside of the gated section we have facing buildings which include a large stable block, barn, wine cellar and former farmers house. Hidden to the rear of the manor with private access if required we find the old mill house (no wheel nor reach I’m afraid) with a private grassed courtyard shared with another good sized barn with modern stables within part of it. The river passes through the property and provides relaxing “aperitif & al-fresco” seating in the shade under the established trees. There are two formal tree lined paths and a good mixture of parkland, paddocks and fields and even a walled former fruit and vegetable garden.
ABOUT THE AREA Located less than 3km for a charming village and about 15 mins from Loches providing all amenities that are required including a great selection of restaurants and it's international school. Tours is approx. 35 mins away with direct TGV access to Paris and Charles de Gaulle airport. The popular tourist destination of the Loire Valley such as Amboise, Chenonceau, Chinon, ... are all within easy reach.
This is a very complete property offering a wide choice or projects in a great location.
