A stunning 18th century chateau situated in France’s Loire Valley has just gone up for sale and it’s the perfect holiday home – with plenty of history and original features.
Known as Chateau de Falloux, the neo-Gothic property spans over 8,000 sq ft, has its own chapel and has ties to Britain with a 19th century English garden.
While it was beautifully renovated in 2018, the home has maintained its period details.
It was previously listed for €3.8 million (£3.2 million) but is now heading to auction for the highest bidder.
The property boasts six renovated bedrooms and seven bathrooms in total, including five luxurious bathrooms with heated floors and walk-in showers.
In a separate wing of the chateau, you can find another 11 bedrooms which have been partially restored.
Elsewere, the huge custom-made kitchen comes complete with Carrara marble surfaces and built-in appliances,
The room gives a slight contrast to the rest of the property with plenty of storage space and an island big enough to hold a buffet for a large party.
The interior and exterior is equally impressive with neo-Gothic architecture and a facade entirely redone in Loire stone.
There’s also a grand staircase, multiple ornate fireplaces, stunning oak paneling, soaring ceilings and breathtaking chandeliers.
New slate roofing has also been added onto all the buildings.
The chateau sits on more than 24 acres of lush landscaping.
Outdoors, you’ll find breathtaking views of the Verzee valley, while the property is surrounded by wrought-iron entrance gates opening to a 300m long gravel driveway.
There’s also ornamental gardens, a vast walled vegetable and flower garden and the aforementioned 19th century English garden.
The owner of the chateau will gain access to their own private chapel too – which is the largest in the region – and has been partially restored, boasting a painted vaulted ceiling.
In addition to the main chateau and chapel, the property also features outbuildings including carriage houses, garages and a stable block that is partly converted into six apartments totalling 7,500 sq ft and sleep up to 30 people.
Located just two hours from Paris, the property will sell with no reserve, to the highest bidder.
The auction will take from today (15 July) until 22 July on ConciergeAuctions.com, in cooperation with Tony Wells of French Domaines.
